We stayed for 5 days at the beginning of March 2014. The whole stay was wonderful: great rooms (all wooden floor, very high roof, modern bathroom facilities, great beds), and staff was just lovely. Very personal service, good recommendations, always friendly.
Even though the hotel is situated on one of the most impressive backyards in Barcelona with lots of restaurants, noise is kept down by the windows and we had no problem sleeping at all (caveat: we didn't stay there on a Friday / Saturday, apparently then it can be even more busy).
The spa is a little bit small - but the good thing is you get to use it alone (with your partner), without having to share it with lots of different people. We enjoyed it very much.
Food was brilliant. My tip: ask to get the breakfast delivered in the room: didn't cost us any extra, and much more nice than having breakfast in the cellar.
So, what is there not to like about the hotel? I admit, I had to think a bit about this :) Well, maybe the amenities could have a tiny bit better. Molton Brown is ok, but please don't put spenders in the shower: that is not 5-star like.
All in all, one of my best stays in a hotel in a very long time. Absolutely recommended!
