We visited Barcelona in May and decided to pay the extra and stay here. So pleased that we did as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We took a cab from the airport which cost 25 euros. As our room was not ready, the very helpful receptionist stored our bags and gave us advice on where to eat. On returning to the hotel later, the bags were already in our room. Shortly after we returned, there was a knock on the door and the staff presented us with wine and chocolates for our wedding anniversary. A lovely surprise and a very nice touch, that night there was even rose petals spread across our bed.
The room was very nice and had everything you could want, including dressing gown and slippers. Lovely bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was brilliant, there was so much to choose from with both hot and cold selections and even sparkling wine as well .... something I could get very used to!
The hotel was in a great location and was right on the beach front and if you went onto the roof terrace, you had a nice view While you could walk to lots of places or use the train (very cheap for a 10 trip ticket) we found that cabs were very, very cheap in comparison to London.
We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in booking this hotel again.
