Everyone was very accommodating and friendly. I can’t remember his name because it’s been over a year ago, but the Dominican gentleman at the front desk was awesome. It’s nice to see a bit of your people even across across oceans. De lo mío personal!

A great contemporary hotel
What I loved the most was the practical approach in the rooms. Space well used, clever design that reminds you of that one in Denmark and the quality is amazing. Location is great and staff super helpful. I had a great stay and I think it’s one of the best hotels to stay in Barcelona.
