I'm rating Very Good because Average would be quite unfair. The room was indeed very nice, clean, stylish, clean and comfortable, with a great bathroom, except that on the first floor with a small window overlooking a dark inner courtyard, I felt like being in a cave rather that a sunny day in Barcelona. As the colors and materials are dark (slate, dark wood, dark fabrics), the room, though spacious, ended up quite depressing. Breakfast room is also in the basement, with no window, but breakfast was good, well presented with a lot of choice. The staff was helpful and offered to change my room for the last night. Other concerns is the heating system ( not possible to adjust room temperature in the room and it was over heated) and the very bad free internet access: it looks like it's intentionally bad so you get the paying premium service.
