Great location approximately 100 meters from the old Cathedral in the Gothic quarter. Fantastic atmosphere wandering around the streets behind the Cathedral at night and dispite the usual warnings relating to picck pockets in any big city had no issues whatsoever.
Situated half way between the newer shopping area (placa Catalunya) and the narrow streets and square of the old town in the La Rambla area.
How about a morning sight seeing around Barcelona (open top bus trips do either a West or East circuit) - back to the hotel for a swim in the pool and dry off by the pool-side on a sun lounger - and then in the evening try a few hours in the Placa Reial to unwind, take in the atmosphere with a few drinks and dinner.
There is a public underground car park 300 meters from the hotel in the Cathedral square.
Appreciate that the pool is only small but cetainly hits the spot.
The port is a walk of around 10 - 15 minutes .
The staff on reception were super friendly and helpful.
Will use this hotel for my next trip to Barcelona - you really need a week to take in the city.
