We stayed 3 nights here. After an extremely noisy hotel in Valencia, we asked for a quiet, high room, and were given one on the seventh floor at the rear, overlooking a park. It was very quiet but disappointingly small, with a window best described as half the normal in size. Lighting was poor, and there was no vanity mirror for a lady. The dressing table light didn't work, nor did half the ones in the bathroom. These were later fixed but went again.The swinging bathroom door was poorly fitting opaque glass,like a Western saloon, with no lock.The shower was excellent. The worst feature was the bed - " queensize". She must have been a midget. It was quite the most uncomfortable bed I've ever, and I mean ever, slept in: a hard mattress, polyster pillows, and a dip in the middle. My wife and I could only sleep by hanging over the side of the bed, to maintain equilibrium, like big cats on a tree branch.
As I know this sounds like one long moan, on the positive side, complimentary drinks a great idea, as was the solarium on top, with plenty of space, although the loungers were pretty manky.
I would also echo sentiments about staffing; one poor girl on reception, with a long queue of people checking in and out. So much for management.
There is a Corte Inglese store close to the hotel on the extended new ramblas, with a reliable restaurant on the top floor.
The old town is great, especially around the cathedral area. Look for the Plaza Del Forum, we can recommend the cafeteria there - La Casita de Los Treauras Bessones ( the little house of the female triplets). Superbly kept draught lager, and a wide selection of moderately priced food.
On the Roman sights we would strongly recommend the Roman Circus, stunning ruins which run under the houses of the old town - best value out.
