My husband and I spent a weekend at the beginning of July 2014, and we were both enthusiastic about our stay.
The hotel is beautifully decorated, Urquiola managed to reproduce the anarchic yet organic balance that one could sense in Gaudi's style. If you have an eye for interior design, you will be amazed; if not, you will simply feel the magic that reverberates from Urquiola's unique and refined taste.
Our room overlooking the Mimosa Garden was spacious, luminous and quiet. Room service was impeccable and the toiletry was good both in quality (I could avoid my regular shampoo and conditioner and still have nice hair) and assortment ( you could find anything you needed). Details that make the difference: bathrobe with inside lining, houseshoes smooth to the skin of your feet.
Staff extremely polite, helpful and resourceful. Not only were they very efficient, but they had a welcoming smile on their face.
Breakfast is excellent in quality and quantity; and the deco of the buffet area is a true treat.
I would not miss eating Japanese food at the restaurant on the roof terrace; amazing balance of taste and atmosphere.
The only minus was that you have to pay for internet connection. Locally, I did not need one, yet I find that given the hotel standards, this option should not be an extra.
