The room looked clean..but once we checked in..we noticed a lot of black mold and water damage on the ceiling. The wallpaper had a lot of scuff marks and needed a good wiping down. The doors and trims were very very dirty and need painting. While this doesn't seem like a big deal, it could have made a big difference. It just seemed liked who ever cleaned just didn't care, this made us feel uncomfortable. The pool was dirty and lots of sand on the bottom. The Barcelona used to be the best hotel, the management is still friendly, but it needs a freshing up.
