Good hotel. Very clean. The gentleman (Albert?) who checked us in on the evening of 4 April 2012 was extremely helpful, kind and welcoming. He was very considerate of these four tired travellers and gave excellent tips on where to have tapas in the neighborhood. He provided us with maps and encircled the nearby places on them so we'd have an easy time finding the tapas places. He also followed up after just to make sure that we were alright. Kudos, Senor! We know you'll go far in the hotel and travel industry.
With respect to the blonde lady who was at the reception the next few days - we were not fans. No warmth. No help. She just sent us to the house phone to do things ourselves. At our previous hotel in Germany, the Marriott Dusseldorf, they were far more warm and helpful beyond the call of duty. 8 April 2012, our last night at the Pullman Barcelona, was a little weird because the guests in the hotel rooms near us were shouting in the hallway. We gathered that they were students and that the roommate of one had fallen asleep after bolting the door so the roommate had to wait outside with her boyfriend. There should be a quieter and more effective way that hotels can deal with sound sleepers! Maybe it was the blond lady on duty at reception.
