Just arrived home from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We decided to go with a city view room and definitely think that made a huge difference. It was lovely to sit by the window and admire the scenery both during the day and night. Although, it can get quite noisy at night so might not be suited to young families.
The location was excellent with a metro station just outside and a big shopping centre with many restaurants. For that reason we decided against eating breakfast at the hotel and went to a nice cafe serving croissants, fruit etc. We were able to use the metro to visit Camp Nou, the beach, Sagrada Familia, La Rambla etc., which were at most a 20 minute journey away.
The pool area was a nice area to relax. We liked how the area wasn't too busy and sun loungers or nearby seats were available on our visits at 9am and later in the afternoon.
One disappointment though was that we had been told before arriving on more than one occasion that it would be possible to extend our check out time from 12pm to 6pm. On arrival we were told to return on the day of checkout to confirm this. However, on this day we were informed that the hotel was fully booked and that this would not be possible. It wasn't too much of an issue in the end as we were able to leave our suitcases with the hotel until our flight in the evening. A warning in advance would have been helpful though.
