We used this hotel a few years ago as we liked the terrace rooms on the top floor. We booked the same again but were not told about building work to make a swimming pool on the roof. This meant that from 08:00 to 18:00 the rooms were subject from drilling through brick walls and some demolition. This was 3m. from our room. OK, it ends at 18:00 but BCN is a big city and sometimes you need a rest in the afternoons. Staff were not disinterested and Duty Manager hid in his office (wimp!). No refund offered - rooms are already about €150 per night, so not cheap. We were offered another room - 4 rooms from where we were, pointless. Staff do not seem to have any empowerment, therefore, can only smile and apologise! Simply we should have been e-mailed to mention the building work - very bad behaviour. Good points? decent breakfast, most staff ok except housekeeping. Room uncleaned until 16:00 until we contacted reception. This could be a good hotel but not at present. It's a dishonest mess. We left a day early to a much better hotel. Not a penny discount for our problems. Hit them where it hurts - do not book.
