Like many others we found this an excellent hotel. The hospitality received at the welcome was very good. There are lots of small touches that make this a very good place to stay.
The room was top class and very clean and comfortable. Would recommend paying a little more for the top floor rooms. The bathroom was excellent with both a bath and a separate shower.
The buffet breakfast is very good. Its a continental selection with a wide variety of options and the service was very helpful in making sure there was a good start to the day!
The location is not a real drawback - it is about 20 minutes away from the city centre and the local rail station is less than a five minute walk. The trains run very late so we had no problem getting home. Plus there is no shortage of taxis available and they cost about 8 euro to get you home from the city centre - A lot cheaper than London!!
One small thing to remember is if you call for a taxi to pick you up from the hotel the metre runs from when the call goes in not from when you get picked up though there is a limit of about 4 euro on this.
One minor quibble - (v minor) - is they advertise a free soft drink mini bar in the room. This is true but as they say when its gone its gone! The only item replaced each day is the water. That said there are soft drinks available in the common area which was very appreciated on some of the very hot weather days.
I would conclude by saying that there is no doubt that on the next trip to Barcelona this will be our first and probably the only choice of hotel to stay in!
