The hotel was very nice, the breakfasts superb, and the location great. The staff was always helpful, except for one reception person, who mostly appeared too busy, was often abrupt, and irritable. it is unfortunate that this hotel does not have a concierge, as the staff is often to busy to help with tourist needs when busy. My Spanish is not great, and some of the staff had some difficulty with English, but does not impair the experience at this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the beds comfortable, and the junior suite was larger. Comparably to other hotels we stayed in, in Europe, the rooms were smaller than normal. Be aware, there is an additional charge for more than one person to a room. This seemed common in all our stays in Europe, however. The location, just off La Rambla was great, easy to get around, and within walking distance of some sights, and wonderful restaurants. Be prepared to walk alot, although there are cabs available, and you will need to get used to the Spanish tradition of tapas from about 1-4 PM, and no restaurants are open for dinner until at least 8 PM. People eat late, and most restaurants are open until midnight. The nightlife begins about midnite and goes well into the early AM hours. I would recommend this hotel to others, it is very modern and quiet. Wifi is available in your room, but only one device at a time. The bar and restaurant is convenient and has a pleasant atmosphere.
