Went for a 5 night trip here, arrived and friendly staff greeted us, unfortunately its surrounded by local kebab stalls not the fine dining Id have liked. No such thing as a double bed only two singles pushed together which is very odd, even though we specified a double, the hotel said they only had about 4 double beds in the whole hotel. Barcelona itself is ok not worth a 5 night trip and it is difficult to find decent cuisine. The pool is smaller then the pictures let on as well and the hotel restaurant is just a salad buffet. Rooms were clean although one cleaner stole our hotel swipe card when we left one in our room which panicked us a bit but luckily they deactivated the cards. Easy access to wifi though.
All in all hotel good but dont expect double bed or nice food there.
