My now fiance and I travelled to Barcelona April 11-18, 2014 for our first international trip together. We didn't know what to expect once we got there but hoped that the reviews were going to be accurate!
We had an amazing time. We got engaged the first night of our trip - our parents, back in Canada, arranged with the hotel staff for breakfast in bed and roses to be delivered. My mom told me that they normally require 1 days notice but went out of their way to arrange this for us.
Throughout our entire stay the staff were amazing. We must have asked them questions at least twice a day - places to visit, places to eat, etc. We even received some very interesting history about the city from one of the front desk attendants. They know their stuff and seem very happy to share their knowledge of the city with us!
If you are looking for a nice, clean, spacious hotel with knowledgeable and friendly staff this is definitely one you should look into!
Thank you again to all the front desk staff for making our trip a special one!
We didn't use the spa and we didn't eat breakfast at the hotel - but the room service breakfast we received from our parents was amazing! Large portions.
