During our visit, there was special event in Barcelona. The hotels were full and rate was high. We found this one which is only about 15 minutes drive from Barcelona city centre.
It is locating in a small town. The car park is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We had problem in locating the car park. Their staff were very nice jumping into our car to show us the direction.
That night was our last night in Spain of this trip. We planned to pack our luggage that night. We did quite a lot of shopping. So, there was really a lot plus the luggage we had to bring to the hotel room. Unfortunately, the path between car path and hotel was not plain and smooth one. And, there was no escalator in the hotel. Though the hotel staff gave us a hand, we still had a hard time in fact.
The hotel was originally an old house and renovated becoming a hotel. The interior decoration the hotel was a bit old and the room was small.
We included breakfast in our booking. It offered continental breakfast. I requested for skimmed milk for the cereals. The waitress was not good in English and could not understand at the beginning. I had no attempt to insist and just tried to take the normal milk. However, the waitress was very keen to clarify my request. She went to ask her colleague what my request was and asked me to write it down. Though they were not able to offer skimmed milk, I really appreciate their attitude of taking client's request seriously.
