The first impression is said to be the one that sticks. When we arrived from the taxi the outside of the hotel appeared to be low key but as soon as we passed through the glass front doors we were in another world, all helped by the friendly and warm welcome by Alex on the front desk.
Our room in the new part of the hotel was large with attractive decor and with excellent sound insulation to the external window from the street below. There was a large and comfy bed. The air con was very efficient and very quiet in operation and certainly welcome in the Barcelona heat.
Breakfast menu was excellent with as much as you could eat from a wide variety of options.
But the best bit was the roof terrace with its bar and eating area and a fantastic views over the harbour. A great place to relax and eat with most attentive staff who took an interest in their guests.
Good location within a gentle stroll to the bottom end of the Ramblas and right next to the Barri Gothic.
The only complaint? The outdoor swimming pool on the roof was a bit too small to enjoy.
