We had read reviews on this hotel before we took our trip. We were not disappointed. The hotel was much nicer than we expected. It even has towel warmers in the bathroom. Lots of closet space. We had neglected to bring our electrical converter with us but the desk had everything you could possibly need. The hotel is right across the street from four Tappas restaurants. We didn't know what that meant but although they were all very similar, the people are so funny and friendly that you want to eat at all of them. The food was very good, very hot and not pricey. We were a 10-minute walk from the statue of Columbus and the port and a 15 minute walk from Catalunya Square which is city center. Anything you want to do you can do from there. While the walk to Las Ramblas was a bit scary, nobody bothered us. It was only about 3 blocks. Las Ramblas between the hotel and the fountains at city center was fabulous, day or night. I would recommend this hotel to any and everybody. The reviews we read said to stay in the back because you are on a busy street but we never heard a sound and we were right in front on the 6th floor.
