My husband and I stayed here with our seven year old son and nine year old daughter. We were all very impressed with the decor and overall appearance of the hotel. The hotel was VERY clean and the rooms cleaned and tidied daily. The hotel is very family orientated and the staff friendly and approachable. The kids lived the Xbox consoles and the Xbox connect....a lovely touch!
The pool in the roof is lovely, the only way I could improve this area would be to a add a few more loungers in the decking area as people put towels out and you may struggle to find somewhere to sit.
The bar located on lithe roof has lovely panoramic views of Barcelona....beautiful!
The free wifi is great and kept the kids entertained so be sure to take any devices with you.
The location is superb as you are clese to sagrada familia and next to torre agbar. There is a shopping complex opposite with lots of fat foot outlets and restaurants. We dined in the hotel restaurant Claravia but were very disappointed as they didn't know how to cater for a gluten free diet...even presenting my husband with a steak on its own because they said the vegetables and potatoes all contained gluten, when we questioned this the waiter was quite rude and blamed his manager...who then came over and sorted the problem and gave us a complete dish eventually!!
Breakfast was fantastic, omelettes made to order, bacon, pastries etc. there is even a crèche who held arts and craft sessions so you could enjoy a coffee without the kids!
We would all recommend this hotel and may even return...fantastic x
