We stayed at the hotel last week while attending the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix. The location of the hotel worked really well for us as it was beside Sants Station where we were able to get the train out to the track every day. Everything already said about the fabulous rooms is true...we had a suite on the 15th floor overlooking the Magic Fountains! The view was spectacular and the room was perfect. Lovely big comfy robes and none of these skinny Minnie bath towels....in this hotel they had luxuriously big bath towels to wrap up in.
Our visit to the Grand Prix was a celebratory present and as such we also booked The Romantic package which included breakfast each day and a small meal with cava on arrival. When we arrived late at night our room was so welcoming, with music playing, rose petals scattered around and some really tasty treats left with the chilled bottle of cava. After our long day it was so nice to have that glass of cool cava. A great welcome to Barcelona.
Breakfast each day in the Visual Restaurant was fantastic....the staff there are very nice especially one lady who went out of her way each day to chat with us. Great selection of hot and cold food however, as we like to breakfast late in the last half hour of service, on a couple of the days they had no bacon left.
The area around the hotel is good, we walked most places from there. If you want to get off the beaten track the area of Sants, behind the hotel and the station has some lovely local restaurants, bars and shops.
I would highly recommend this hotel, everything about it is good and I would love to return again to it in the future.
