I always try to be 100% honest on any review and admit to finding it hard being decisive on the comments to submit.
Negatives first. The reception area is dark and dismal, not welcoming in any way. This should be looked at. The bedroom card (Do not disturb) has just one side to use and once you hang on your door, either way, your room will not be serviced. Breakfast, if you are room basis only, seems a little expensive, so study carefully hotel offers available.
The positives far exceed the above. Rooms are carefully designed with clever little modern touches and quiet. The restaurant very good with an excellent menu to choose from. There is a wonderful garden area in which to relax or have your drinks/ meals and also a splendid roof terrace, divided into two sections, one on the city side and one on with a sea view.
The best left till last. All members of staff were brilliant. Helpful, extremely polite and willing to provide assistance wherever they could. A credit to whoever is responsibly for their training.
They are very close to becoming a top class city hotel and we would most certainly stay here again when visiting Barcelona.
