We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and can only say positive things about our time there. We were welcomed with a friendly glass of Cava and were checked in and bags taken to our room while we relaxed.
We stayed in a standard double so nothing extra but the service and small touches included made us feel like VIPs! The staff were very friendly and extremely attentive, they were very personal and sincere. The hotel room itself was on the small size but had everything we could want and considering its fantastic location we could not fault the facilities.
We ate at the hotel one of the evenings, had room service and breakfast in our room, all the food was superb, the service was great and nothing was ever too much trouble.
The hotels location was ideal, Placa Reial is a very pretty, lively square which gives you a sense of being in the thick of it but still able to escape to a tranquil haven without having to trek across the city. It was at times noisy but not to the point of keeping us a wake or disturbing us, we enjoyed the sound of the city and could always close the balcony door, draw the curtains and drift off in the most comfortable bed.
The hotel had some wonderful personal touches which made it feel like a true boutique hotel, the fact that there are only 18 rooms means that the service is tailored to individual requirements whilst still being able to provide many of the services you would expect in a much larger 5* hotel.
Our only regret was not being able to stay longer, we will recommend this hotel to everyone we know who plans to go to Barcelona.
