I went with my Daughter-in-law to Barcelona on 20th March for a long weekend. We stayed at the Avenida Palace and was pleasantly surprised at how impressive the building was. The Gilt staircase is beautiful and although I had read a few reviews that said it was 'tired', I can honestly say we saw no sign of this. Our room was clean and well furnished, the traffic noise was a bit intrusive with the windows open of a night but that really was our fault as we never mastered the air con. The restaurant did a three course meal with a glass of wine and coffee for 20 Euro, there was a good choice and it was nicely cooked, we only ate out once at La Poma on The Rambla and it was awful.
The hotel is in an excellent location with really lovely fountains at each end of the block. The metro was just outside and the airport train not far around the corner. We were a couple of minutes from The Rambla and all in all were ideally situated.
It is a shame that European city hotels have not got in the habit of supplying tea/coffee facilities in the room as I really missed my morning/evening cuppa but perhaps if a few more people ask, we may yet see this happen.
All in all a very pleasant hotel and would recommend it.
