Stayed in club room 3102 and club suite 3009
Absolutely fabulous! Almost flawless! An experience far beyond anything to compare with in Barcelona! Most important: An outstanding service! A genuine concern and a full concentration on their guests! Always with a smile and no stiffness! From everyone starting at the entrance!
Don’t know if it is because the number of foreign people hotel employs, but it is rare (read: impossible) to find this outstanding service at any other place in Barcelona. Bravo! We were very fortunate to stay at the club level which is an experience by itself. The immediate greeting with a warm and genuine care. The never ending smiles, the continued polite interest and the nice small conversations. The great service, knowledge and help. Fantastic! Excellent food and beverage in varied themes throughout the day. On top of this a magnificent view of the sea and the city on the 33rd floor! Thanks to all the club lounge staff for making a memorable stay.
Rooms are large and very comfortable with fantastic views. Got upgraded to a corner suite which was even more fantastic. The view of Barcelona is one of the best in town!
Restaurants are really good and service is excellent here as well. Again – always with a smile and very friendly! Didn’t try the bars, but they look great! Gym is perfect and well equipped. The spa is closest to heaven you can get in this hotel and the service is top notch! The view from their terrace is breathtaking!
Almost flawless… yes some issues to think about. This is a hotel originally constructed for business people, so in the summer when tourists arrive, including many families, the pool area is far far too small. There are some 500 rooms and maybe 70 sun loungers. There is a grassy area as well where it is possible to lay down, but no sun chairs. If you arrive later than 10 o’clock on a weekend – forget about it! No chance! Furthermore there is ONE shower which barely functions. Not sure the size of pool area can be rectified at all, but it’s a pretty important issue to look into. Then, remember to brink a big wallet, most you pay for in this hotel is quite expensive. Example: Smoothie 13 euro, hamburger 22 euro, gin and tonic 22 euro, small bar of chocolate 10 euro, water from mini bar 9 euro etc. Fortunately Club level food and drinks was complimentary, which came as a bonus! Although had dinner at Arola which was excellent and not overpriced in my opinion. The lobster cob salad at café veranda is not cheap, but hard to beat with a glass of Albarino and the great view! Also, location is not in the centre of town. Takes about 15 minutes to walk to Born area, and 5-7 minutes by taxi to pl Cataluña. However, it’s right on the beach(es), and there are some good restaurants and great nightclubs right outside the hotel.
