I stayed at the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya on a week long business trip during St John's Festival. The night of the festival was drowned in the noise of fireworks. I am not one for being a grump, but they happened literally all night.
This was apparent in single glazing windows which do not keep the noise out very well. The traffic noises were also prevalent throughout my stay which made a good night sleep hard to come by.
The rooftop restaurant has stunning views of Barcelona. Breakfast was good - nothing special but good. The bar was small but well serviced and looked the part. Prices were what you expect (but shouldn't accept) from a hotel bar which made drinking there a rarity.
One bizarre thing is the thickness of the pillows - absolutely massive and gave me a sore neck! I could have asked housekeeping for different ones I guess but it was a bit bizarre.
