After lots of internet research for a hotel in a great location that was comfortable and nice, we opted to stay here for 3 nights when we were in town for New Year's weekend. The hotel is modern in style, well maintained, clean and with a comfortable bed. It is in the l'Eixample neighborhood, close to everything we wanted, so in that regard it was great. Even the housekeeping staff was especially polite and friendly.
However, here is my question: why have a miserable and curt front desk person to make a crap first impression to your guests when you've got everything else going for you?! We were immediately friendly, agreeable and unassuming guests checking in to your establishment (so it wasn't something that we said or did), so why, when we approach you at the desk, does the desk representative fail to acknowledge us *at all* except after about 10 seconds of awkward silence, broken only by the grunting of the word "passports." I think you should have said "hello" to us first instead of the other way around!
Is doesn't take much to make a bad first impression, eh? Thankfully, all else was great about the hotel.
