The hotel itself is great. It is new, rooms are chic and clean and have a modern feel, it has a spa and a gym that all guests can use. The gym it a bit small, but the rest of the hotel makes up for it. The hotel has an indoor pool (spa) and an outdoor pool on the roof. The rooftop restaurant is not a big deal, but it is made to be so online.
The reception acts as concierges too, but it is not the same when I compare it to other hotels with equal quality and stars. Although their bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.
The hotel is right on Las Ramblas, a street with a lot going on all the time, which can be a good or bad thing. Driving there on your own with a gps can be hard, it took me and my family a while but we found it. It's located in a good area in order to leave to explore the city.
For a 5 star spa hotel, this hotel will not disappoint you, but it will not blow you away either.
