We stayed here for a short city break and from the moment we arrived in the lobby we knew we made the right choice in hotel.
From the staff to the amenties we couldn't find anything negative about it. We were lucky enough to have been given a room with a small balcony that overlooked La Ramblas, which was lovely to be able to hear and see such a famous part of the fantastic city. We crammed a lot into our short stay in Barcelona so this hotel was also perfect location for everything we had on our itinerary for both walking distance to things (La Sagrada Familia, La Boquiera, Casa Battlo etc) and for catching a taxi if need be to get to a little further out (Park Guell, Monjuic, Camp Nou). All the staff we ecountered were polite, extremely friendly and attentitative. Our (fantastic) room was kept maintained with clean towels and linen everyday not to mention the bed (extremely comfortable and absolutely huge). The terrace was wonderful - perfect place to relax having a beer on a bed/sofa or to catch the rays by/in the pool- great views too. This trip was a birthday treat for my boyfriend and although the hotel never actually knew his birth date as it wasn't on any of their systems - they saw birthday cards in the room, when we arrived home from dinner that night a complimentary bottle of champagne and a birthday note were left for him. It was pure attention to detail with this hotel that we throuroughly enjoyed and that will bring us back for when we return to Barcelona! :)
