We had a lovely room overlooking the cathedral square for our six night stay. We enjoyed being able to observe some of the interesting activities in the square, such as the circle dancing on Saturday evening. Our room could get a bit stuffy, so we thought of leaving the floor length windows on our balcony slightly open at night. However, we found that too noisy - not from activities in the square, but from the cathedral bells ringing every fifteen minutes. Closing the balcony doors muffled all sounds very well, and noise did not bother our sleep. The bed was very comfortable and the room was kept very clean. The buffet breakfast which came with our room was excellent, with enough variety that we enjoyed it all six mornings. The evening price-fixed meal was also very good on our first day when jet lag made going out unappealing. There is some merit in the criticism in a recent review of the front desk staff. They were polite, pleasant and professional, but we were not encouraged to ask for extra services. There seemed to be many mature men who staffed the desk, and altho we were there for six nights, we never learned anyone's name other than the friendly bell staff. The great location helped make our week in Barcelona a wonderful time.
