We arrived at the hotel mid morning, after an early flight out from the UK & were delighted that after a short wait we were able to access our rooms. These were on the 8th floor with a view across the roof tops to the Sagrada Familia & the cable car. Very clean rooms with for once, efficient, quiet, air conditioning. There was also English TV channels, free wifi, complimentary shampoo, shower gel etc. Chairs in the room were very comfortable, as were the huge beds! The tea/coffee facilities in the room could have been better - just one large cup & one very small cup provided (our son's room only had one cup throughout our stay despite requesting a second); plenty of tea & coffee sachets but only two small milk portions! We also only had one small bottle of water in the room for two people. The breakfast was expensive for what it was. The 'hot' food the hot plate was barely warm. I opted for the croissants which just tasted of oil & so didn't bother with breakfast for the rest of our stay. The buffet style evening meal was also only warm, despite us being in the restaurant within 10 minutes of it opening. Needless to say we only ate there on the first night. Also, like other reviewers, we were disappointed to find on arrival that the pool was still shut for refurbishment. Despite my gripes I would probably stay again as the location was great - just a short walk from the Magic Fountain & the sightseeing bus stop was just a 10 minute walk up the road & the accommodation a good price. However, next time all meals will be eaten out!
