We arrived at the hotel after a flight from Zurich via Munich. The staff were welcoming and made us feel comfortable immediately. Throughout our visit of 4 nights, the staff helped us with restaurant recommendations (all good), cabs, directions, a electric conversion plug and money exchange.
Our room was just the right size, very clean, well-maintained day-to-day, and we had double doors that opened onto a small balcony almost overlooking the Cathedral. The location is perfect if you are working your way through the top sites of Barcelona. We walked to all but a few destinations, and for those we took a cab from a taxi stand nearby.
Our friends recommended this hotel for us, and we would gladly recommend it to other travelers!
