We stayed on two different occasions this week, having found reasonable rates online considering it's 5* (eur 160 for a twin). The building is beautiful outside and in, and we found the rooms super comfortable. The dark stylish interior reminded me of a Joel Robuchon restaurant! All of the staff (Daniel, William, Alejandra, etc 'gracias!') were unfailingly courteous and helpful, as well as being genuinely charming. Including the chatty late night security staff when we returned from the local Catalan festivities of La Merce!
With so many wonderful restaurants and bars in Barcelona, we preferred to eat and drink outside of the hotel (see my other reviews for a couple of options), so I can't complain about their prices. Likewise, the hotel gave us beach towels and we went to Barceloneta rather than lounge around the mini rooftop pool.
The local area is upmarket, and the walk down to Placa Catalunya or Universitat a pleasant 15min walk past some architechtural delights! Maybe 30min walk down to the beach.
Our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking a small courtyard, with Sagrada Familia visible in the background. There was no noise pollution. The key system I found simple enough. The lighting switches by the bed are a bit confusing, but that may have been me being an idiot.
Overall, highly recommended if you get at the right price.
