Location, location. Friendly, helpful staff who speak English well. I want to give special recognition to Oliver. He is a native of Barcelona and pointed out things to see we wouldn’t have known about if he hadn’t told us. He checked in with us every night to see how our day went. Very near La Sagrada Familia and an easy walk to the Metro. There is a parking Garage close by. Plenty of restaurants and place to get a good eats all around the hotel. The neighborhood has a family friendly feel to it. Laundromat close by. Have a drink and tapas at the restaurant across the street from the laundromat as you wait for your laundry to wash and dry. The hotel had only been open a week when we stayed there. No amenities except for a hair dryer. We didn’t get daily room service. We asked for clean towels and got them right away. We asked for room service after the third day. I didn’t realize we had to ask for it. The hotel is located above a gym and we could hear excercise classes in the morning and evening, sometimes. We weren’t in the room much, except to sleep, so it wasn’t bothersome. The beds are comfortable and we slept well. The staff are working hard to make this hotel a success and are very accommodating. It’s worth checking out. And again, great location.
