My husband and I stayed for three nights this week - his 60th birthday present from me. He has always wanted to visit the city. I chose the hotel for location and because I knew we'd want an oasis in the heat, and somewhere luxurious as it was a special occasion. This hotel met every expectation and surpassed most of them. We had a first floor room to the side of the building and were not troubled by noise in the slightest. The square is noisy until the early hours but with windows, curtains and shutters closed and aircon on there was no problem whatsoever. We slept soundly. The staff were friendly, helpful, kind, welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. I've stayed in 5* hotels in many countries and few meet this standard of service. All spoke excellent English. The food was first-rate - best calamari we had anywhere (it's my favourite!). The room was stylish and the bathroom large and supplied with good toiletries and plenty of towels. Every detail had been considered. We had breakfast each day on the roof terrace in the shade which was a very enjoyable and civilised experience. We ate on the terrace on the square too - a lot of fun to watch all the people, and we were not pestered by anyone. I cannot recommend this hotel too highly. Worth every penny and for a hotel of this standard, outstanding value. If we visit Barcelona again, we will stay here.
