Visiting Barcelona for the first time, I tried to choose a hotel which was close to the main attractions but still bne in a fairly quiert location. The Hotel Atlantis fitted that bill. Just round the corner from la Rambla and close to Place Catalunya, the location was ideal. It was very noisy, however, on our first night due to the following day being a holiday. Fireworks and firecrackers were still going off at 3-30 in the morning.
As for the hotel itself, check in was o.k. We arrived early but were allowed to leave our cases while we went to have a look round before coming back at check in time.
Our room was on the 4th floor at the front of the hotel. The room was clean but small. There was a mini bar and the prices seemed reasonable though we only used the bottled water from it.
Tea and coffee making facilities but no proper tea and the cups were paper cups.
The hotel has a bar but it is only open from 6-30 to 10-30 in the evening but not at weekends or holidays. This meant, arriving on Sunday and Monday being a holiday, the bar wasn't open until Tuesday. However, we decided to have a drink after being out for dinner on Tuesday night. The bar was staffed by a woman who didn't speak English. The selection wasn't very extensive so I had a half bottle of wine and my wife had a Cointreau which we took up to our room.
Breakfast was typical continental with some cooked items - scrambled egg, bacon, mushrooms and potato in breadcrumbs. Breakfast is normally served from 7-30 to 10-00 but if you come down after 9 there is a good chance there will be no scrambled egg left.
At check out we were again able to leave our case until it was time to leave for the airport.
