What a lovely stay we had at this hotel. From the first moment we walked into the reception area -( with a sky-lit domed roof making it unique and beautiful, ) and met our first of many friendly and helpful reception staff, we felt so comfortable and at home. A glass lift took us up to a beautiful room - spacious with wood effect flooring and a nice warm temperature for a chilly winter evening in January. The bed was luxuriously large and the bed linen very high quality - something that makes a difference. The bathroom had a quartz- topped double sink unit and there was a very good shower.
We have to mention the lovely smiley and ever helpful staff: thankyou so much to Conchi Santos (front office manager); Nina Aguero (on front desk), iulia, (waitress) and last but not least, Yamila, (chef) who made me the best pancakes I've ever eaten for breakfast. So... onto the food; the breakfast was incredible as there was everything you could ever wish for and more, hot and cold as well as local too, such as the Iberian ham and salamis. The hot food stayed hot or was cooked to order and brought to the table. (Fresh orange juice and a very good museli and lots of dried and fresh fruit and seeds for anyone looking for a healthy breakfast). I loved the eggs; the yolks were so rich. For the English there was good bacon. It was a wonderful start to the day each time we ate there.. All this made for incredible value for money for what we paid for this hotel, with a true 5 star service.. What makes the biggest difference we find is the staff; their attitude, and every member of staff here had a fantastic attitude - always approachable, friendly, and hard workers ready to help and do whatever needed at the time.
What I didn't expect either was the lovely view of the mountains from our room ( the front of the hotel ) and also how well it worked out to be in a quiet location away from the noise of the city yet within easy reach of it too. we used the shuttle service to get into the main area of the city (the Ramblas) as well as to and from the airport. It was on time and an excellent way to save on taxi fares. We travelled with Ryanair so arrived in at terminal 2. Most flights get in at terminal 1. If you are travelling with Ryanair do make sure you have the hotel phone number with you on hand when you arrive as you need to phone them at reception to request the shuttle service; they understandably only provide the shuttle to this terminal as needed. It's not a problem as it's only a 10 minute wait.
I have to add that after we had left we realised that we'd left a pair of sunglasses in the room; however all it took was one phone call and the glasses were sent on to us immediately. Not only did we receive them in the post very quickly, but to our surprise there was a small gift included too!- how lovely - shows how lucky this hotel is to have such staff.
When I first saw the reviews here on T.A. I was not sure what to expect of this hotel and feared an overly modern sort of impersonal experience but was very happily proved wrong and I would definitely recommend this hotel highly to tourists and business travellers alike.
