This was the second time we stayed at Hotel California and have no complaints whatsoever. The price and location were the priority and in view of that we expected and accept something slightly rough around the edges.
Good points are friendly helpful but not "in your face" staff on reception and at breakfast, the location is ideal for wandering around the city and also for many bars and restaurants especially with Placa Reial on your doorstep. The bed was comfortable and extra pillows are provided in the room. If you want a negative the bathroom is a bit "lived in" with missing, and clearly repaired grouting, but it was clean. Breakfast was what I expected and perfectly adequate, with (not fresh) fruit juice, water, cereal, cold meats, cheese, preserves, bread rolls, croissants and muffins. Coffee (decent in my opinion) is available from a machine. It did get a little noisy outside on Saturday night, but to me that's part of being in such a handy location. For a three night stay this hotel fitted the bill perfectly for me and my wife and we would stay again.
