We have just come back from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We booked a standard basic double room. However, we were very surprised to discover how small these rooms actually are. When you open the room door, it hits the bottom of the bed, you literally have enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was quite the opposite, with plenty of room and also included a bidet. The bath was small, but this didn’t both us, because we prefer to shower. There was a mini bar in the room, with all the usual drinks supplied. There were only 4 clothes hangers in the wardrobe, for a 3 night stay this was not enough. It would have been nice to have been told at reception that there was a charge for the use of the safe (2.30 euros per day). On the plus side the room was spotlessly clean.
The reception staff were pleasant enough, although we did notice that other guests checking in, were offered a complimentary glass of champagne, which was not offered to us. John who works behind the bar was very nice, he even remembered what our drinks were when we retuned the following night.
The location is excellent, close, but not too close to Las Ramblas, which is a hive of activity.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short stay. Although you might want to consider upgrading to a bigger room, if you feel a bit claustrophobic and plan on spending a lot of time in the room.
