We have been going to the dinner party for New Year's eve of 2022. It has been a delightful experience. We started on the terrace with a glass listening to a wonderful singer and with a beautiful view over Barcelona. Then we went for dinner. An amazing dinner, creative, with new savours, full of detail attentions and of extremely good quality. The service was perfect, discrete but attentive. With excellent manners. I very warmly recommend to my fellow followers to go to this excellent place, this peaceful and quiet but colorful place.

Outstanding customer service, friendly and gracious staff, went out of their way to always support our needs and questions. We stayed for eight days and after the first few days quickly felt as though we were coming back home each night. Outstanding location, beautiful view from the room, absolutely recommend this beautiful and historic hotel. Oh, and the roof deck view and vibe are simply amazing!

It has been a while since we have stayed in such a great hotel. The service/hospitality during our stay was fantastic. All the team did everything possible to ensure our stay was perfect, but especially Front of House Manager Jaime Estellés who went above and beyond our expectations every day, including personally ensuring we got out of the public carpark with the hotel QR code Our room (712), as promised was extremely quiet and comfortable with everything you hope for in a hotel of this calibre. Breakfast was good and relaxed with a good selection of food. The bar was quiet each time we went, but served excellent quality drinks including one of the best ports we have ever had. The location is excellent - easy walking distant to the beach, la ramblas and for those who enjoy a long walk, the amazingly atmospheric Sagrada Familia which just took our breath away. Taxis are cheap and abundant so if you need to rest your feet after a long walk, this is an affordable option. The rooftop pool is wonderful - we managed a very enjoyable swim despite it being December because we were lucky enough to enjoy unusually high temperatures during our 2 days, which added to the perfection of our stay. We wished we had booked for longer - next time we definitely will.

We landed in Barcelona at 7 am and reached the hotel by 8:30, the reception staff was kind enough to give us at room at that time and since we went on honeymoon they upgraded our room. The terrace is amazing with great view and complimentary coffee ❤️ As we went during the Christmas time, the street is decorated beautifully. The railway station is 20 mins away and airport is half n hour away. The hotel staff guided us on how to reach at different locations and also arranged a rental car for us as per our requirements. Amazing stay!!
