After reading other trip advisor reviews it was with great trepidation that myself and husband set off on our first trip to Barcelona. We encountered there extremely friendly staff, a nice room on the 6th floor complete with modern bathroom and balcony. The continental breakfast was much the same as we have had in many European countries and the location in the gothic quarter was superb. Close by were Barcelona Cathedral, the Picasso Museum and La Rambla as well as the beaches and harbour of Barcelona. I did wonder if I was staying at the same hotel as the other reviewers. I have to agree that tea and coffee should be available as standard in this day and age but we solved the problem as we have done in the past with a travel kettle. The rumble of the metro was a little irritating but not the fault of the hotel. The room was cleaned daily to a very high standard and a maintenance check was carried out by a very polite staff member even though we had not complained about anything being wrong. The reception staff were great when we had a problem with the taxi company we had booked and solved the matter quickly and efficiently. A very happy stay was had by both of us.
