I will definitely stay here again when I'm in Barcelona. I'm pretty tough on hotels, and this one checked all the right boxes. It has all the ambiance of a bygone era with modern updated rooms. I can't sing the praises of this hotel highly enough. The rooms are large with a sophisticated style that has become the standard for top end hotels, and this hotel does it well. The lobby is classic old world style which is well maintained. I didn't try the restaurant but I'm told it's very good. The hotel staff is very knowledgable about the area, and suggested things for the to see and do on a free afternoon. They were also able to find a Michelin rated restaraunt within walking distance that was open for lunch on a Monday (most are closed on Mondays). While the hotel has a spa (I think it has a fitness center but I didn't see it) it's best to ask at the front desk for a referal elsewhere else.
