My room was very comfortable, and I could calm writing essays and other academic works for my students ;) I thought that trip to Krakow was the best in my life, but no, Barcelona is top, and I want to go back there.

Room is clean and cozy. Room service is nice, the hotel staffs are kind and provide good service. Also breakfast has multiple choice, such as ibérico and omelette, quality is good. The view on the top of the hotel is fabulous both during sun rise and sun set. If the weather allow, swimming in the day is really relaxing.

Barcelona is a special place to visit and this hotel was perfect for us. The location is great and the staff could not have been friendlier. We even ate dinner there one night and that, too, was a treat.
