this is a very funky and cool hotel with a special ambience. Loved it. Located right inside the Barri Gotic on one of the tiny lanes, about 100 yards walk from Placa de Sant Jaume, and just minutes from many restaurants and shopping. Fabulous architecture and cool modern design built into the ancient walls of the old building. Excellent restaurant that served wonderful Spanish breakfasts of croissants, Iberian ham and cheeses, but augmented by your choice of omelettes or egg dishes (all included in our package). Dinner was a delight as well - have to try the gourmet fixed course menu at least once. Two items you must know though: 1) We were in room 107, a lovely junior suite with 20 foot ceilings and lush décor, however, because it is right in the old quarter, when you open your windows, you are looking right into an apartment 6 feet away! Hence you appreciate the velvet curtains! If you are a light sleeper, you may wish to choose a higher floor to minimize some of the street noise that is inevitable. 2) I agree with other reviews regarding a concierge service - the staff tries so hard to be helpful, but if you are waiting to check out, it can be a little annoying waiting for someone planning a tour or dining experience. High marks to the staff though, they did everything to make us feel very welcome and comfortable. Can't wait to return, such a cool funky place.
