After some of the previous reviews, I was pretty nervous about staying here, but we had a great experience. We were on the 3rd floor and had an outside view facing the church which was across the street. Based on other reviews, I think this was pretty lucky so I just wanted to point that out as I don't know if my rating would have been as good if we were facing a cement wall instead. Housekeeping was great, and our room was very clean. Newer TV's with only Spanish-speaking channels, but that is to be expected. Wifi was wonderful the whole time we were there - never had a single issue with it, and it was very reliable. Front desk was always professional and polite, but we didn't have much interaction with them. The location was absolutely perfect. I love that it was a little quieter than staying right in all the action, but we were close enough to anywhere we'd want to be either by walking or by taking the metro which was very, very close. I felt very safe in this location, even when we returned late at night. One prior review mentioned it was hard to find, but I disagree - we didn't have any troubles with that whatsoever. The bed was two singles pushed together to make a king which was kind of uncomfortable, but again to be expected in Europe. The beds were also very hard, but that is normal for European standards. We did not eat breakfast there so I can't speak to that. They did have shampoo, soap, and lotion. If we return to Barcelona, I would absolutely stay here again.
