I was here with a group of tourist and when we are doing check in, the receptionist demand for a payment of Barcelona city tax immediately. (the way he act is as though I will run away without paying. For goodness sake, we are staying in this hotel for 2 nights) I simply request to give me 5-10 minutes to give my clients the keys first and settle the payment when I am done. (I did not prepare this money before hand because most hotel I stay only want this payment when I check out and all my money is my "secret purse" and it will be unglamous for me to pull it out in the public) I was rudely refuse and was told that no payment no keys. I have to basisly run through my bag to search for money for payment. If only they allow a 5-10 minutes wait, I will not look bad in front of my clients. This receptionist even have the cheek to tell me in my face that I am rude without thinking of his attitude in the first place.
