I must admit that I have not read the other reviews so I am sorry if I repeat "stuff" that others have written already.
This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. From now on when in Barcelona this is where we are staying !!!.
Great GREAT great hotel and staff.
If you get Ms. Monika at the front desk while checking in you have nothing to worry about. All the questions you might have had will be explained and answered before you even get a chance to ask them. She is wonderful.
A few tips :
If you come with a car use the Career del Pintor Fortuny str. entrance !!! Some of the streets around the hotel are closed due to construction work or are one way streets which makes it a rather tedious route to get back. See parking sign. Hotel is immediately on the left. THERE IS PARKING SPACE AVAILABLE !!! From there you will be directed to the parking which under the hotel.
If you like a quite room ask for one facing the career del Pintor Fortuny Street.
They is building work on the career de's Xucia str. They will finish someday but in the mean time the spanish works shouting while communicating with each other make more noise then the actual construction.
We stayed in room 529 >> the higher the better and quite.
For a quick bit try SAGARRA. It is just around the corner on career de's Xucia str. Opposite BAIL LOBO.
It is a hole in the wall but the food is great ( lunch & dinner ) and very affordable. You probably will have to wait for a table BUT it is worth it.
Make time to enjoy the hotel. Barcelona is wonderful but a swim on the roof terrace pool ( or the "other pool" in the basement ) after a long day is a must.
We had a wonderful stay. Thank you to the H 1989 staff.
