We stayed in a standard room on the 6th floor for 3 nights. The room was small, clean, comfortable and smart, though I'm not sure about the greeny colour scheme and the room was very dark and hot. We were asked if we wanted a street front or quiet room; we asked for quiet, and were pleased with the result. The staff were cool towards us at best, sometimes appearing quite snobbish; I was particularly cross about the attitude we were shown when we came back on our last night to report that my husband had been pickpocketed - the man behind the desk simply smirked in response and slapped a new room key-card on the desk. Prices within the hotel were extortionate - we did have the breakfast buffet each morning, the quality and quantity of which was amazing, but you can get a coffee and croissant for 2 euros just around the corner. The free wifi service was terrible and barely usable, and the TV's 2 English speaking stations both produced a hideous beeping noise, which meant we couldn't use the TV either. The water failed us altogether on our second morning. I've made it sound awful - but I would stay there again, as I think we were just unlucky on all the above counts. The location is exceptional - no more than a 15 min walk to anywhere worth going in Barcelona - and there's a handy taxi rank outside for return trips to the airport!
