Nothing was wrong with the Atlas hotel. It was more comfortable and in a better location than any other hotels we stayed in during our trip to Spain. We stayed at three different hotels in Barcelona.
The bad experience we had was with the staff person that checked us out. We had a 7:30am flight to Granada so we checked out at 5:45am. We were going to find a taxi off La Rambla but the guy at the counter said it will be very hard to find a taxi at that time. He said he will call a taxi for us and it'll be here in 2 minutes. After 5 minutes passed, we said we prefer to walk to a taxi station. He said it's very far away. When the taxi driver finally ran up, he said he couldn't drive up to the hotel because the street was blocked. We said we could walk out but before we did, the taxi driver spoke to the reception guy in Spanish and they were exchanging money. We found that odd but just wanted to get to the airport. When we finally got there the taxi guy added $15 euros to the cab fare and said that's the fee when you call for taxi service. We knew that wasn't the case because we did taxi research before getting to Spain. We gave the driver the fair price and ran into the airport. Luckily we had all our bags with us up in front or else he would have had our bags hostage. This really ruined of view of this hotel. The next hotel we stayed at in Barcelona we asked if we to pay taxi call fee if they called a taxi for us and the receptionist said that they did not.
