Stayed here for three nights before a Med cruise. The hotel is modern and clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms are not large, but the bathrooms are trimmed in elegant marble. The location couldn't have been better. A block's walk took us to the hop on hop off bus, which took us to all the sights in the city, including the awe-inspiring Gaudi church, the Sagrada Familia. The buffet breakfast was very good with a large selection of local meats and cheeses, fruits and pastries. The restaurant menu selection was limited, but tasty. The bar menu was smaller, but with delicious offerings and unusual cocktails. The concierge was very polite, patient and helpful. No question was too tedious for her. Her English was very good - better than her replacement at the end of our stay. Our Spanish is almost non-existent, but she had no trouble understanding and explaining. She referred us to two very good restaurants nearby and a wine shop where we could get bottles to take on the ship. The porters and chauffeurs that the hotel employs were helpful and knowledgeable. The outdoor rooftop lounge was a wonderful opportunity to get a panoramic view of Barcelona both day and night. I would recommend this for anyone spending time in Barcelona.
