Had asked for a double room but sent initially to a twin bedded room, staff obliged with a second room 201. This did have a double bed but the paintwork and skirting boards were scuffed and dirty and in need of decoration and this room,.and all of their rooms,are reminiscent of University halls of residence...no embellishments, such as a picture on the wall, utilitarian desk and chair, no armchair, broken shower,....no comfort......think dormitory.
Still we unpacked glad of a double bed and went out to explore. Despite a pleasant walk and introduction to the delights of Barcelona, drinks and tapas there was no way we were going to be able to sleep in 201. Shutters were closed,blackout blinds drawn,windows shut yet I still had the impression that I had pole position at Le Monza!.....the traffic sound was ......LOUD. Jeans over "jammies" I set off for reception where I asked night clerk for another position "on the grid" .....hopefully a little further back.....as I pointed out that I would be better off dragging my mattress out onto the pavement. The night manager was very obliging and gave us an alternative, 306. This room was to the back of the building,twin beds,the distant drone of air conditioning ...nevertheless very welcome and affording the ability to sleep.
Having had this unfortunate initial experience of the Onix,breakfast was a pleasant surprise and very welcomes not .
This hotel is in a very good position and has attentive and pleasant staff ......improvements to soundproofing at the front of the building and some small additional comforts to the rooms would be money well spent and raise the standard of the Onix.
