Have just returned from a 3 night break, our first in Barcelona. This was an excellent base for our visit and once again our choice was influenced by tripadvisor. The location is just a 10 walk from where the airport bus drops you and the hotel is easy to find. Reception on arrival was warm and welcoming with an offer to help with directions etc. Our room was 508 with a great balcony. The decor is modern and the shower was fantastic. The bed was large and very comfortable. Wifi in the room excellent and free. The only negative is that breakfast in the hotel itself is poor. 10euros each and the quality and selection was bad, along with disinterested staff. However, that is easy remedied because attached to the hotel is a cafe/bar which serves great fresh breakfast (we had fresh orange juice, panini style rolls and cappuccinos for 7euros each). The irony is that these are prepared in the same kitchen that can't prepare a decent hotel breakfast! The bar is also excellent for evening drinks and tapas and the head bar man speaks good English and was a good host. We give this hotel 5stars despite the breakfast because the other factors more than make up for it. Book it, you won't be disappointed.
