In addition to it's uniquely artistic decorated theme I booked this hotel for my first ever night in Barcelona because it has a pool, gym, steam room and sauna. Unfortunately, the pool was roped off and closed. The steam room was not functioning properly and the showers for these amenities did not work at all. This meant anyone going in or out of theses rooms would do so without a shower. This makes for some fairly sweaty conditions in the elevators next to you business traveling peers.
The amazing thing is how the front desk responded with indifference. If you pay for a night at a hotel that has these features then you should be able to use them or or for the inconvenience there should be some consideration taken.
Guests can't get that time back nor can they change their plans at the last minute to relocate to a property where the amenities their seeking to pay for are in proper working order and available for use.
As much I liked to overall vibe the experience suffered.
This hotel is classed as 4 star. The detail was not there to justify it. Staying on the 5th floor there was chewing gum on the lobby floor outside the lift for 2 days. The walls were paper thin hearing noises from next door for several hours each night.
This was our first trip to Barcelona so we did not know what to expect. While traveling to the hotel, we didn't expect to arrive at such a nice hotel. The staff greeted us immediately and were extremely helpful. We were early and had to leave our bags in a luggage room, which they assured would be kept safe (they were). The front desk gave us advice on the best means of travel and quickest routes through the city. The hotel itself was very clean. Our room was a little warm but we didn't have any trouble adjusting the temperature. Location of the hotel was nice, as it was close to the beach. We were more interested in going to La Boqueria and sights further north but the hotel is only a short walk to the Metro station. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our stay.
