The hotel is centrally located with a mile walk to la grada Familia or to the beach. It is located right next to the Arc de Triomf. The breakfast, pool, and bar are on the roof with amazing city views. The rooms are spacious and clean. The mattress quite comfortable. The breakfast is really nice with scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon amongst fruit and sweet breads. The staff was so helpful with everything we needed from taxis, recommendations, and printing forms for the next country. I would highly recommend and it will be my first choice when we come next time.
