Arrived to a warm welcome and chap on reception gave us a city centre map without us asking circled where the hotel was ,circled the nearest metro and the quickest way to walk to the Ramblas ( a 20 minute slow walk ). He also gave us a business card for the hotel to help if we needed transport while out and about. Our room was very smart but next to the lift we could hear a hum when it was being used but if your noise threshold is low I would suggest a move we thought about it but decided if it didnt bother us the first night we would stick with it. ( it didnt). The breakfast we cant comment on as we didnt use it although on check in we were offered it at 11 euros a head rather than the 15 advertised online. There is a little bakery next door which is good and cheaper. We ate in the hotel restaurant on 2 nights it looks the part but I feel it could be loads better althoughI would recommend the Goat cheese starter . I tried a burger one night but it was very salty so not to my taste but my husband liked it so much he had one on another night. There isnt a lot of choice here 4 mains, 4 starters but there is a fast food menu and you can mix and match if you like. The bar is relaxing and comfortable. Look out for the postcards on the coffee tables scan the Q R code and the hotel will send you a voucher on your phone for a free bottle of Cava when you have a meal in the restaurant! From 12midday to 5pm ?? there is a coffee corner in the bar where you can help yourself to free tea and coffee and pastries. This hotel is very near to the port/ Marina where there is a huge shopping centre.
Negatives would be the sink lives outside the bathroom/toilet so that can take a bit of getting used to . If you like tea/ coffee in your room bring your kettle .(There is a fridge in the room). Ladies if you need lots of light when applying make up bring an illuminated mirror as the one in the room looks well lit but the lighting is inefficent. The hotel is in a residential area so views from the windows can be of someones washing etc but we were using this as a base so this didnt matter to us. Overall we would come here again mainly for the convenience of its location and very helpful staff and smart rooms.
