My partner and I stayed at The Cram for a week in July and it's everything you need from a hotel in such a fantastic city. The room was clean and modern and the bed was really comfortable. My partner struggles to sleep more than 4 hours a night, but had no problems here. Perfect location for sightseeing. We would take a leisurely stroll in the morning, stop for a coffee and pastry on the way in a little café, before taking in some of the sights. We headed back to the hotel for 4ish most days to sit on the roof with a glass of wine, a good book and a dip in the plunge pool (this is what is advertised, do not expect a swimming pool), which was perfect after a day walking around in 38` heat. The bus tours are pricey, but are really worth it, as you get to see so much. The beach gets really busy from 2pm, full of teenagers with handovers and people trying to sell you rubbish, so get there early to miss the madness. We didn't eat in the hotel as there are too many lovely restaurants in this city. The staff we're lovely and couldn't be more helpful. If you're looking for somewhere to sit by a pool or beach all day with a fry-up and cheap beer, go to Benidorm, Barcelona is not for you. This is a city for people who love culture, good food and life.
