As I travelled on my own, I stayed in a single room. The hotel is well located and very clean. There are only 18 rooms, which has it’s advantages and disadvantages. I personaly like it to stay in hotel that isn’t too crowded. Some other tripadvisor users commend, that they have stayed in many 5 star hotels and never have been served by such a friedly staff as service is outstanding. I experienced the staff as friendly and the service was good. However I wouldn’t discribe it as unparalleled. The breakfast and food served in the restaurant are good as well.
As mentioned I have stayed in a single room. Which is the cheapest and smallest room in the hotel. The bed is confortable and there is a free mini bar, stocked with soft drinks. (very nice :-) ). As a man I can’t complain about the bathroom. (excellent shower)
Most rooms facing the placa Reial, I suggest it must be nice overlooking the placa. But I stayed in a single room, where the view is absolutely unpleasant. The windowpane is matt. Which has a good reason… The ventilation from the kitchen is close by, so if you would like to get some fresh air in, you may end up smalling more like some fried saltwater fish…
Conclusion: Would I Recommend the hotel ? Yes I do ? Do I recommend the single room ? Well, I’m not too sure. If you spending the whole day and evening in the city and only looking for a place taking a shower, sleeping and having breakfast in the morning you will be fine. If you have to work or like spending some time in your room, it’s might be to small for you.
