I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. Gorgeous, stylish, very spacious rooms. Mesmerising views over Barcelona. Lovely, lovely pool and grass area. And utterly amazing staff. We stayed five days and honestly, I could have stayed a month.
Breakfast is huge. Lots of pastries, breads, sandwiches, cheeses, fruits, hams, cereals and even chilled champagne, you know, in case you’re in the mood. Far far better than the average European five-star.
Ditto the bed. None of that two-beds-pushed-together rubbish that you find all over Europe – this is a giant soft bed with perfect pillows. There’s a desk and a sitting area, and all rooms have a fantastic terrace. Try to get one overlooking Barcelona – early evening on your terrace with a bottle of something cold will be the best hour you spend in the city... Oh, and the room has proper blackout blinds too. The room is DARK when they are drawn.
Bathrooms are big: huge egg-shaped standalone baths, walk in shower, lovely toiletries, two sinks (ah... relationship happiness). Some rooms divide the bathroom from the bedroom with just a curtain, so if that’s not your bag, request a separate bathroom ahead of time.
Absolutely best of all are the staff – most particularly Paula on the Front Desk, who is warm, charming, efficient and genuinely lovely.
Paula made a huge effort to ensure everything was okay for our baby, and always greeted us with a huge smile and a chat – just such a lovely lovely woman. She also returned my phone when I stupidly left it behind - Fanny on the front desk is also delightful and also helped track my phone down (when I rang for the sixth time and housekeeping insisted it wasn’t there, she went to our room and found it herself!) The staff at breakfast are also really lovely and chatty. Always nice to talk to.
On the downside? The menu is very, very limited – it’s the same for room service, in the restaurant and by the pool. Three salads, three sandwiches, and a burger. (The burger is good.) The housekeeping staff are a little charmless and some of them are better than others. And apparently if you have a room on the atrium, it can get a little noisy as sounds echo up from the lobby. But all in all? An exceptional hotel.
