Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from 7th November. We are in our young 20`s so were a bit nervous as its the first time we have been away just the 2 of us. However, the staff at the hotel could not have been more helpful and accomodating. We arrived at 10:30 am fully aware we couldnt check in until 2pm, but we upgraded our room and were able to use it straight away.
We were handed maps to give us directions of our surroundings and when we wanted to visit somewhere, they were so helpful with the routes we needed to take. We got a T-10 ticket for the metro which took us to Las Ramblas in about 10 minutes. Felt so safe and comfortable after being warned about pick pockets but we had no issues. 5 minutes from the hotel is the old bull fighting ring which is now shops and restaurants offering a great view at the the top. Amazing restuarants there too we ate at the Italian and the Spanish resataurants where they we so friendly.
We walked to the Nou Camp which was soo easy to find within 25minutes. Again the Hotel staff pointed us in the right direction. The bed was massive and so comfy. The shower was a power shower which was great. We also had a TV in our room which allowed us to watch SkyNews in English. Tea and coffee facilites were provided as part of our upgrade. Room was always cleaned and offered fresh towels. Next to the hotel is a hypermarket which offered anything you could need! Also lots of other little shops around.
As long as you are prepared to do some walking and use the metro the hotel is perfect. Iwouldnt have wanted to be in the main city centre as we enjoyed the peace and quiet. We walked to the montijuc fountain which behind is where the old olympic stadium was held. For us being young, i feel i would come here again and we managed to see a lot within our 3 days in Barcelina mostly being on foot!
