We stayed here for one night prior to embarking on a cruise out of Barcelona. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous inside and smells wonderful. Gracious porters took our luggage from the cabs and stored them as our room was not ready until a few hours later. Helpful front desk personnel gave us maps and suggestions for where to eat and shop.

The hotel is very centrally located and walking to tour buses, restaurants and stores can be done within 20 minutes.

Rooms were immaculate and well appointed. We had a king size bed and a roll away cot was brought in for our son. He did not find it very comfortable and ended up sharing our bed in the wee morning hours!

Great restaurant and bar off the central lobby. A buffet breakfast is offered in addition to a la carte menu items which included both American and Spanish breakfast foods. Coffee was delicioso! Service was great.

In the evening we enjoyed cocktails and little nibbles while reclining on comfortable sofas and chairs in the lounge.

We stayed here for just four nights and loved it. The hotel is well situated within walking distance of shopping and the Old Town. There are some small restaurants/bars nearby too.

The room we had has beautiful and the bathroom had a massive shower and a sunken Roman bath.

Breakfast was to die for ! I don't think I've ever seen such a selection before, and if you want something different, just ask. The Hotel caters for all nationalities.

The staff very helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back.

We had the delight of staying in this hotel just as they were completing the renovations. We were not able enjoy the Bar downstairs that had a grand piano and beautiful antique brass coffee machine as the paint was still drying! However I did get to see where the athletic room with pool will be located in the future. The staff was attentive and able to answer questions and give suggestions. the location was righ in the center of everything, We walked a couple short blocks to eat Tapas and take tour buses. The concierge gave wonderful recommendations and when we decided to rent a car they had one available right at the hotel all taken care of...it was a brand new Mini

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in July while celebrating our anniversary - decided to splurge a bit on a nice hotel. This hotel is absolutely beautiful, with a turn-back-the-clock plush feel. From the moment walked in the door we were treated like royalty. We made a passing reference to the recent Wimbledon final and the front desk clerk - unsure of the outcome - called a concierge who ran over to fill us in on the details. This set the tone for the rest of our stay...the staff was always willing to go the extra mile.

The room was very nice with a spacious sitting area and massive bathroom - which was actually split into two separate rooms - one for the shower and one for the toilet. Bed was comfortable. Nice bathrobes. High end toiletrees. Just an all around luxury experience.

The location is also quite good. The Ramblas is a short walk away and the tony Eixample neighborhood - home to many Gaudi houses - is also very close.

If this hotel is within your budget, you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

My husband and I stayed here before and after our Mediterranean cruise and loved this hotel. Everyone, from the doorman to the concierge to the housekeeping staff, was amazing. A wonderful smell permeated the common areas and the facility was very clean. The bathroom was beautiful and modern and the television was IN the mirror over the fireplace. The hotel offers turndown service and free wi-fi, but there's a catch. You must request a login from the front desk and it's good for only 1 hour per day. I've read that the hotel offers shuttle service to the airport and cruise terminal, but neither of these proved true. Still, the hotel was great and in a great location. We were two blocks from Las Ramblas and did lots of walking! There are also two metro stops within walking distance of the hotel, making it easy to navigate the city.

An added bonus is that we arrived in Barcelona at 8:30am and were relieved to find that our room was ready and available for a nap after a long international flight. However this spoiled us because after our cruise returned to Barcelona we were expecting the same grace but found that the hotel was completely booked (9 cruises were coming and going that day) and had to wait from 8am until 2pm to get our room).
