We had a courteous and efficient check-in for 3 executive rooms (3 couples). All of our rooms were on the second floor facing the back (or inside garden to-be). Our rooms were large enough to place our suitcases, and each had a sofa lounge area, quite roomy and relaxing by the window. The rooms were quietly located in the building so we all had a restful sleep and heard no noises from the busy streets around our hotel.
And what a wonderful buffet breakfast we had every morning. Which hotels offer champagne (sparkling wine) with their breakfast (at these rates)? Well this one did, along with fresh fruits, nuts, a variety of cold cuts, bread, and pastries. And if you still can eat, why not order a smoke salmon plate, or your choice of omellettes, even an American style breakfast plate. Believe it, it's all included in their breakfast buffet!!
Location, location, location is what this hotel offers too! You are right in the middle of shopper's heaven and walking distance (15-20 minutes) to La Rambla and the famous market. And of course, one of the Gaudi buildings is diagonally across from the hotel and the other Gaudi building is up the street. The red and blue lines for the hop-on-hop-off bus transfer/stop is less than two blocks from the hotel. It's also a short taxi ride to the cruise port. Wonderful tapas restaurants are within walking distance as well.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - two nights here before boarding our cruise. All of our friends thanked me more than a dozen times for choosing this hotel for our stay. I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the earlier reviews, however I decided to give it a try. And I am so thrilled that we stay here and we all intend to return to this hotel for a longer stay next time we are in Barcelona!
