I have been several times in the hotel and I am always delighted. Excellent and very professional staff. Rooms although a little small for my taste are very comfortable and clean, with designer décor. Whenever I go to Barcelona I stay in this hotel.

Always smiling and very attentive to detail Staff. Check in are long but understood why, turns out they have so many activities and services that explain every check in takes longer than normal, but thanks so much time is taken on each client. I enjoyed the bar and parties, you can interact with people from Barcelona and hotel people, very good idea.
