I recently went to Barcelona to attend a ballet performance at the Liceu Theatre. I chose this hotel for it´s location right behind the theatre and just off the Ramblas. In this sense it was perfect . It isn´t expensive compared to other hotels in Barcelona in the same category. Unfortunately this area tends to be noisy .
The concierge was polite but definitely not pleasant. The room was extremely small but modern, clean and comfortable. In the bathroom there was a night light in the floor which was way too strong and there was no way of switching it off. This was very annoying since the bathroom door is glass and there was no way of keeping the room dark at night.
The breakfast seemed expensive so we opted for a café on the Ramblas that serves wonderful croissant.

Opened in 1859, it was later renovated by the celebrated modernist architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner. The hotel has always been considered a little gem of Barcelona modernism.
