The hotel is well situated in the Eixample area of the city. The lobby and the bar to the left of it are fairly chic. We were there as a group; some of the rooms were very nicely appointed; others, done in a different style, less so. We soon realised that there were two types of room: those with a small window which looked on to a brick wall about 60cm away, and those on the street side which had the noise of the traffic going by. In its quest to be trendy the hotel also has, as we later discovered, a nightclub in the basement which pumps out booming disco music till very late. This was audible from rooms on the second floor so anyone not intending to dance themselves to sleep in their bed might wish to ask for a room on a higher floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful; the ones we dealt with spoke fluent French and English in addition to the obligatory Castilian and Catalan.
