i booked this hotel for a romantic, surprise birthday celebration weekend. I was a bit apprehensive before I arrived as I had read a couple of negative comments. However, we could not have been more pleased. Everything was just great. The room was lovely and clean, bathroom modern and clean. The breakfasts were well worth booking with a good choice and and good standard. All hotel staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly. Location was good as far as we were concerned with a 10 minute walk to top end of Las Ramblas. There wasn't a great deal on the doorstep but we got a peaceful night's sleep and there was a metro station close by. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
