Firstly this hotel is about 15 minutes with the bus away from Las Ramblas. I requested a non smoking room on the top floor due to the noise , as other visitors advised. When we arrived they gave us a smoking room facing the street, I asked for another room however they said they had none. Then later on the evening I requested another room as the smoking room was really stinking and they gave me a non smoking room but still street facing. The next day after I complained that I did not sleep at all they gave me a room on the 6th floor. Unfortunately due to Spain winning I had little sleep that night as well as the neighbours had a party till early morning. I also had many itchy bites due to the bedbugs.
The breakfast staff was the grumpiest staff I have ever met and it felt like we were interrupting their day. Breakfast itself was nothing to write home about.
This is definitely not a 4 star and I will not be visiting this hotel again.
Taxi's are also extremely expensive in Barcelona compared to Valencia
