Felipe the host in the front desk is the epitome of a perfect host: efficient, extremely friendly and with a great sense of humor. Felipe made us all feel welcome and was a walking encyclopedia on things to see and good restaurants in Barcelona.
The hotel location is right between the Zegna and Nike shops and some 3-5 minutes walk to Plaza Cataluña, at the top of Las Ramblas. It has a unique entrance as the lobby/reception desk is actually on the first floor (not the ground floor). You can leave your heavy pieces of luggage on the ground floor and the concierge can bring them to your room. Oh yes, the only wrinkle we had was the that our rooms were not ready even by 2PM when we checked in.
The bar closes early and unfortunately the bartender will shoo you away to a couple of tables away from the breakfast area. This was the other wrinkle - the bar is NOT convenient and the demeanor of the bartender does not help this inconvenience.
Over-all, however, one can gloss over these couple of wrinkles and take the hotel experience as a whole. And I can only say it was an excellent one. Felipe, the Argentinian, did contribute a whole lot to this wonderful experience.
Definitely this will be our hotel in Barcelona.
