i had 4 wonderful days in this hotel. this is the perfect hotel for anyone who wants to enjoy barcelona and at the same time be comfortable with the stay. i advise everyone to join the ExpoClub, it entitles you many privileges of the hotel such as free breakfast on room(if your board is on BnB basis, room service is free), late check out, express check out, discounts.. and they'll give you the best room location which on my case they didn't just gave me the best... but a FREE UPGRADE! I booked a standard room and upon knowing that i am an expo member, they gave me an executive room with a stunning view of the Montjuic Palace and the magic fountain.. the hotel's location is peaceful and very strategic, less than 10mins. to the ramblas, walking distance to the montjuic, and 20mins. to the airport via regional trains, there is a supermarket near the hotel and there is everything you'll need such as restaurants, bars and everything on the SANTS station on the front of the hotel. breakfast is not bad but i guess you should try searching bed and breakfast deals coz' i don't think paying 18E is not worth it.. but on the other hand i'll pay even 100E for the view on their visual restaurant!!!! you should absolutely see it! it's like having the whole barcelona on your feet. THe hotel has a SPa too, though it's worth only 6E, i didn't like it. Cable internet connection is available on rooms but book on their website so you could have it free otherwise you'll have to pay somewhat like 10E a day. All the personnel, from the receptionists, room service, housekeepers to waiters and waitress are extremely helpful, polite and always ready to help and to serve.. the room is kept clean during my stay and they clearly indicate to leave the towels on the bathtub if you want them changed and ask the housekeeper if you want new linens otherwise they'll do it every other day, even so, they pass twice a day to clean the room and other personnel pass twice, first to leave you chocolates during mid day and candies in the afternoon, i felt like being pampered during my stay. lastly on my last night, being an expo member, i was surprised to see a chocolate cake with strawberry and orange syrup and a bottle of beer on my room when i arrived after a whole day out. nothing could be better than like what i have just experience staying with them. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED!
