There's no denying the fantastic location, beautiful views and proximity to the centre of Barcelona due to the cable car and public transport.
All the staff were incredibly helpful and the breakfast (though rather pricy) gorgeous. We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and apart from having to wait a rather long time for our main course, it was worth is as everything we were served was delicious. (The head waiter apologised profusely for the delay and offered us a drink on the house as compensation.) We also tried out room service which again was superb (and actually reasonably priced). The free wi-fi worked without any problems.
The room was very boutique as described on the hotel's website, however: The doors to the shower didn't meet properly, hence one stepped into a pool of water after each shower. Obviously a design fault. The flatscreen TV was quite small - I had expected something bigger for a room this size. It almost felt like an afterthought.
What was really frustrating was the noise from other guests and the bar. The layout of the different floors means that most rooms are facing a 'common area' which is the centre of the hotel. Consequently, as sound travels upwards, we could hear people talking on our own floor and below us. Friday and Saturday evening we couldn't choose to listen to the pianist as the music was audible in our room behind our closed door. The room doors also slammed from early morning and into the late evening. So noise was an issue.
For the price of our stay, we did expect something more exceptional and unfortunately, we didn't feel that the hotel lived up to that.
