arrived at the hotel which looked exactly as it did in the photographs...wow!!!! was easy to find as got the train from the airport and it brought you out on the corner of the street..so very convenient. walked about 5 minutes and arrived at the hotel.the hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful..both my husband and myself thought it was more like a 5 star to look at...we paid for breakfast which was very nice and hads lots of choice....and if you're a big eater its excellent cos you can eat as much as you like..had cheese, ham bread,pastries,toast(which you did yourself) butter all different preserves..full english..bacon sausage etc..cereal, fruit, yoghurts,3 different fruit juices,tea, coffee ,milk...so plenty of choice! the breakfast staff all spoke good english and were all very nice.the hotel was spotless throughout and very boutique-like...(posh). our room was very spacious had wooden floor and a massive bed...the drapes were very thick and blocked the light out well..the lighting was very nice too...we had a full length mirror (great for us ladies) and a nice size flat screen tv...there were also 2 very nice comfy chairs in the room and a very spacious wardrobe..the safe was free,which is a bonus ..and the minibar was well priced..also if you took a kettle like us.. there was space in the minibar for milk ...we also had a nice balcony with chairs and table..we didnt use this as were out most of the time..it looked out onto a courtyard so not the best view..lol! the bathroom was also lovely with a large glass doored shower,toilet and sink...again plenty of mirrors and great lighting..also we got free shower gels, shampoo, razor ,sponge,tissues,soaps,toothbrush,shower cap,and shoe cleaning sponge..which was a nice touch! the towels were changed daily as were the sheets on the bed.the hotel was nicely situated away from the noisey part but close enough to walk ..about 15 minutes from the ramblas...there are restaurants nearby and coffee shops and bars..the hotel bar shuts a little early 10.30pm...but has a good range of drinks. ..we didnt eat in the hotel on an evening but the food did look very nice...we found the hotel very quiet..which was good after a busy day sightseeing...was able to get a nice sleep.. i forgot to mention it also had free hi speed internet...i would definately book this hotel again..we didnt want to come home...and i would be very happy to recommend it to anyone ..my hubby brought me here for my 40th birthday and i have to say its been one of my best birthdays ever..x
