Great Hotel, great location

Posted 26-Mar-2017
Pros: Staff were very helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions and housekeeping were very sweet and responsive.
Cons: Hard time thinking of anything - perhaps more options on the room service menu?
Location: Quick walk to the main part of the gothic quarter or the beach.
We enjoyed the location - so close to everything. We took long walks to the gothic quarter or beach daily. Staff were helpful and delightful. Quick responses to all requests. Our teenager loved the automatic light blocking shades on the small window. Not much of a view but we were not in the room much. They restocked the free minibar daily. It was a really nice touch - free waters and the teen demolished the pringles and candy daily. We had two single beds - it was just my son and I so the room was perfect. The beds felt sumptuous with all the sheets and blankets. Shower was beautiful and new - bathroom was larger than standard European bathroom. Huge towels - made us happy!

Mother's Day present

Posted 25-Mar-2017
This hotel was a treat for my mum for Mother's Day. I have stayed at a few 5 stars with my mum and the grand was exceptional. It Could NOT have been better, it was everything I would hope for from a 5 star. The hotel had a great ambience and some great cocktails as a lover of whisky I am surprised I have a new favourite non whisky cocktail in a Iberian old fashioned. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was exceptional.

Heavenly honeymoon

Posted 11-Mar-2017
From the hello to the goodbye our experience was fantastic! Room was beautifully minimal, the staff was attentive but just enough. Hernan(spelling?) was the difference between an 8 and a 10 he was great. Location was perfect for the historic things we wanted to do. City bar and the adjoining restaurant were delicious.

Perfect location for first trip to Barcelona

Posted 22-Feb-2017
Pros: close proximity to everything we wanted. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff.
Location: Right in center of Barcelona, close to anything you would probably want to do, especially if it is your first time visiting the city.
Hotel was excellent, staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. Walking distance to the beach and anywhere else you could possibly want to go in the Gothic quarter. You do not need a car for where the hotel is located.
