We arrived for our 4 night stay at 10.30am and our room was not ready. This wasn't a problem as we could leave our luggage and walk around the city. The hotel is in a perfect location.
Unfortunately when we got back to the hotel, there was some confusion about what type of room we had reserved and we were unhappy about the room they had allocated us. Eventually after speaking with the Front of House Manager, she upgraded us to the Suite on the 4th floor. I can't remember this lady's name but she was extremely nice and very helpful. We were very impressed with the suite and we were able to stay in it all weekend, which was fabulous.
The hotel was clean and the bedrooms well stocked with toiletries and towels. I understand the previous comment about the electric blinds - they are good at keeping the light out, however a little noisy for neighbours.
All the staff we met were very pleasant and accommodating. Breakfast was good with a plentiful supply of everything you need to fuel your day of sightseeing. The only gripe we had was the Wifi. It was quite unpredictable and we kept losing connection. We couldn't get any connection in our room at all.
Barcelona is a fabulous city - even in the rain! We didn't encounter any problems mentioned in previous reports and felt quite safe. We used the hop on/off tourist bus which was very good value for 2 days (31 euros each) and got to see all the sights. We ate loads of Tapas - some better than others, but mostly good! We will be going back to Barcelona and would also recommend this hotel to anyone.
