If you're not the very touristy type traveler this hotel is PERFECT!
It's located just a few short blocks away from Ramblas, which is akin to 42nd Street in NYC. Yes you should see it, but not eat there or stay there as everything is jacked up in price and lowered in quality. :/ Also, very near the metro and all the Gaudi sights!
The Petit Prince room we had was high up and had a darling little balcony with two french doors so we could go out and check the weather each morning and soak up the fantastic view. The hotel is modern, chic and clean. I'd say minimalist though. Beware of the unusually dark hallways. I suppose this was to set an ambiance but really just made it hard to use the hotel card key at 3am. Petit Prince- invest in some lights.
The rooms are fairly sized (for European rooms) and had large chest closets so we could actually unpack, which I appreciate on a two week vacation. There is a breakfast downstairs but overpriced in my opinion with so many amazing little cafe just around the corner. Flauta and cafe solo shouldn't be consumed in a basement restaurant.
I did appreciate the wi-fi in each room but more than once had ot go downstairs to get the new password which was minimally inconvenient. Would've liked to have had a drink at the lobby bar before heading out as it looked very inviting, but there was never a bartender to be seen :(
Overall, the hotel was really great though. Fantastic location. We'll be back for sure!
