This hotel was a great find. The rooms are simple, elegant, clean, and modern. The hotel is just around the corner from the Cathedral, and only an easy couple of blocks to La Rambla. The rooftop bar/pool area is breathtaking, and quite a scene with music and lounging late into the night. Every day, I unwound with a glass of wine, watching the sun set over the spectacular city view from this rooftop.
What made this hotel stand out for me was the excellent front desk staff. They were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure that all was taken care of. I had to ship a couple of boxes via FedEx from the hotel, and they all worked very diligently and professionally to make sure it was handled. The boxes arrived with no problem, and the staff seemed genuinely concerned that all went well.
I was in town for a mixture of business and pleasure, and I definitely plan on returning to this hotel for future stays. This hotel definitely contributed to my overall positive experience in Barcelona.
