We were enjoying our time in Placa Reial (one of my fav spots in Barcelona) and it didn't take me long to decide we were checking out of our average accommodation and into one of those rooms overlooking the square! It turned out to be the best decision of our trip. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating when we fronted up for a room (no booking) showing us a beautiful room overlooking the square. We lunched at the terrace restaurant, sunned ourselves on the rooftop terrace, had a dip in the plunge pool and ordered a bottle of cava room service which we enjoyed while watching the constant entertainment in the square from our little balcony. The bed was a dream, the bathroom divine and we had a fantastic 1 night stay. In the morning our flight was early so we had a room service breakfast (no extra charge) which was amazing and we on our way. If you are coming to this city I can't think of a better place to spend your time. The only complaint would be the service in the terrace restaurant needs to be improved.
