We booked flight, hotel and transfers with Easyjet. Everything went easy peasy. Delighted with location of hotel. We had room 506 for 4 nights. This was on Floor 5. We could step onto the balcony and see the rooftop views and the Cathedral. The staff were outstanding, spoke very good english and solved our problems with phone calls to transfer agent and even charged up the iphone and told us where to find a connector which we had left at home. The room was very comfortable with extra pillows. We liked the buffet breakfast which was continental fare, fruit and spanish dishes like Paella, tender beef stew, spanishe chicken with peppers in wine. You won't be hungry till late afternoon! There is a large lounge to relax in on the ground floor, snack machines and the 2 lifts work well. When you check out your luggage can be left behind the locked reception if your flight is later. To the left of the hotel is the Ramblas, lots of fast food franchises. A Sports Bar to see footie. To the right is a square where there is a tourist office. They give you maps and info. Get the Museum pass here to beat the q's. The hotel is very near the Picasso Museum and Gaudi's Palau Guell. Both recommended. Overall we had a very relaxing stay and would revisit.
