This hotel is a beautiful piece of Barcelona architecture across the street from the Fira convention center. The location is excellent and easy to get pretty much anywhere from the hotel by metro. The whole hotel is artsy, upbeat and has many above average features. Now for the bad parts...my stay was over $4000 (US) for 5 nights, in a basic single room. Granted this was due to the proximity to the Fira, during Moble World Congress, but still, crazy expensive. Also, anytime the wind blows, the beautiful architecture turns into a very negative experience as the red exterior covering of the hotel shakes and rattles VERY loudly and makes sleeping near impossible without earplugs. I cannot highly recommend this hotel, even though it has a lot going for it.
