Right from the start our experience at this hotel was great, from easy check in and friendly staff including Clara on reception who was great for advice of places to go and nothing was any bother - even deciding to book at the hotel restaurant to eat a couple of hours later!
All the staff in the reception area were friendly and welcoming and on hand to offer you top tips of where to go.
When we booked we paid extra for a Collection room - and it was well worth the money. We were lucky enough to have a room on the 16th floor and had stunning views out towards the Palace at Montjuic. The room itself was very comfortable and even the marble floor was cooling on the feet after a long day out and about. Plenty of space for the two of us and all our bags and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on when out and about for a long time!
The restaurant was a great place for a romantic meal. not only did it have stunning panoramic views of the city but the food was amazing. What I liked about it was the way the tables were set, you didn't have to face your partner or the window - you could do both! The staff were attentive but you didn't feel like they were pressuring you to eat and move on, you could savour the fabulous flavours of your meal and take in the view (even with a raging thunderstorm on one night!)
One of the best features of this hotel is its location. For us it was an ideal base to explore the city. Its just a short walk from Sants station and all the big attractions and a direct line to the airport which is just a short 20 minute journey away.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a great place to relax, good food and good base to explore the city.
We would definitely stay there again.
