We stayed here for 3 nights from the 9th of august, having asked our travel agent to find us something boutique and unique and this certainly met the bill. It's tucked away in the back streets near the Cathedral, in the heart of the Gothic quarter and the rear terrace sit's into a very charming and traditional square. The hotel itself partly dates from the 13 century, however it's been renovated to the highest standards and maintains a lot of original charm. Upon check in we where greeted with a complimentary drink and our room was ready early (a nice change). We stayed in room 302, which was a junior suite, whilst not that big it was well proportioned, had a very nice bathroom and excellent views on to the square at the back of the hotel. The design was modern but tasteful. overall room quality was good. The food at the restaurant downstairs is excellent and very good value for money. Whilst the small nature of the hotel means it does not have all the facilities you would expect in a larger hotel (gym, pool, etc), the food and service where excellent and the 24 hour room service is unusual for a smaller hotel. The staff where charming, attentive and very friendly and certainly did a great job at making us feel welcome and relaxed, they even went as far as to print out and give a recipe to my wife after she had eaten the same dish at lunch 3 days in a row, which was a great touch. The hotel has lot's of character and I firmly recommend it if your looking for a base to explore Barcelona for a long weekend.
One tip- If arriving at the hotel by taxi, get the hotel to book it as the Gothic quarter is difficult to enter via car and lot's of taxi drivers won't take you to the hotel (as we found out on arrival), which can make it difficult to find.
Overall- This is a very unique and special hotel, well run, great staff, good location and I can't find fault with it (unusual for me).
