As a Travel Agent, I have stayed in many hotels over the years and am therefore hard to please. This hotel was for 1 night post cruise and was such a pleasant surprise. Having arrived in Barcelona at 8am, we thought we would have to leave our bags and sightsee for the day. The staff at check in were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and they allowed us to check in on arrival and upgraded our room. A really large room by City standards, double bathroom, and coffee making facilities, fab robes and slippers. Great location next to Tarragona metro and only 4 stops from Las Ramblas( approx 10 mins). We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine on the terrace in the afternoon for the unbelievable price of 16 euro, sitting in a suntrap. Staff in Ecklectic Bar were so pleasant.
The piece de resistance was dinner at the Visual restaurant, breathtaking views, great service and sumptuous food and wine. NOT TO BE MISSED... Try the Fois for starters and the mouthwatering beef. Wine was again a mere 19 euro per bottle, and a nice touch was amuse bouche prior to dinner and a sample of deserts at the end. All for 80 euro. Breakfast the next day was just as good, a truly Cataln buffet with all the meats and cheeses, freshly squeezed juices and hot fare also. We could hardly move and it set us up for the day. The view by day was spectacular. Great recommendation from reception staff on the fantastic shopping centre in the old bull ring ( 5 mins walk away) which saved us going into the centre for last minute shopping. No rush to check out either. It takes a lot to impress me and many city centre hotels provide indifferent service. Well done to all the Torre Gran. We will be back and I will certainly send my cllents
