For a 5-star claim, the hotel left a lot to be desired, we booked a room with no breakfast, and that's all we got. Kettle, coffee and tea are almost standard in 4* and 5* hotels but this hotel begs to differ.
The hotel is old and you can tell, the air conditioning was malfunctioning for the entire 2 days but since we were out most of the time we couldn't nag them enough to fix it, the king size bed was nothing more than 2 beds stuck to each other although the reservation was for a king size bed.
The funny part was they told us all they could offer is either a smoking 2 bed room or a non-smoking room, when I told them about the reservation, they said since I didn't pay anything for a reservation, then I had no choice!
Camp Nou is close and so is transportation, it was a 25 euro cab ride from Barcelona el prat airport
