I was here for 4 days in April 2013. Of the 10 hotels I stayed in on this trip, this was one of the best. With a few concerns I list below.
The staff was excellent. Helpful, patient and conversed easily in English.
The brunch was top notch. Hot meals prepared on request. Champagne and a solid bar of expected items. Add the Nespresso coffee to make the experience grand.
I had a large room with twin beds. The twin beds were my second choice because double bed seemed too hard. Maybe two people on the same mattress stretches it to be extra hard.
My 1st day the room I was given was very small with a small double bed. But the staff corrected that ASAP to give me a room that was much better.
The church ( Sagrada Familia ) is a block away. I almost skipped the tour due to the large lines. But then I learned that a ticket purchased on TicketMaster.es gives immediate access without the line. Print the tickets at the La Caixa bank ATM across the street from the Church.
The location is a 30 minute walk to the center of town. But the metro is on the corner and its a 10 minute trip ( Blue and then Green ). I was door to door in less that 20 minutes to the farthest part of La Rambla. Very nice metro system. Easy to understand.
PS: Buy the T10 ticket from the desk at the airport or other main station, then skip the ticket machines.
Taxi to the airport (Terminal 1) was 39.20Euros. Higher than I had expected.
And the rush hour traffic can be a problem.
The blue metro to the train is much cheaper and more predictable. The Aerobus is a good alternative, but then you have to take that same two hop trip to Catalunya with your baggage.
