The location is absolutely perfect to explore Barcelona. I would not hesitate to stay in this fab hotel again. Our room (a junior suite) was gorgeous, with big floor to ceiling windows on 3 sides with a view of the cathedral in the distance. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The cocktail bar is really great, we sampled more than a few, but my recommendation would be the Sauc (named after the restaurant) - sublime! We also ate in the tapas restaurant which was really good, fab service, very attentive. We spent our last late afternoon chilling by the rooftop pool overlooking the city. All in all, the the best hotel I have stayed in in Barcelona & I've stayed in a few.
The concierge were really helpful & polite. They gave us an indispensable tip for getting on the tourist bus at a less busy spot.
If there was one tiny tiny gripe, it would be the toiletries in the bathroom didn't feel like great quality considering it's a five star hotel, but this would never deter me from staying.
