Although advertised as a 5 star hotel, I would say it was more a 4*. Priced very reasonably compared with other 5* hotels. The staff were very welcoming and only to happy to help us. It appeared to be mostly frequented by business travellers rather than tourists. The breakfast was varied and excellent. The hotel contains a small gym on the top floor, plus a small pool on the roof (which was out of use when we stayed).
The room was clean and functional, although some of the furniture looked tired and dated.
Be aware that the large cruise liner dock by either side of this hotel, and they do apparently come in at odd times, so it could get noisy, but we never had any problems. In fact it was a pleasure to look out of our window and watch these behemoths coming in to dock.
It has an excellent location just 5 minutes walk from La Rambla.
Just outside the hotel is a bus stop for the City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off service - we got a 2-day pass (saving money) which allowed us to visit virtually every attraction very easily. The buses come frequently so there was never a long wait.
The marina is just opposite the hotel and is a short walk.
All in all a great stay and would definitely stay here again.
