Comfortable hotel in a great location in the centre of everything L'Eixample offers. Many nice restaurants, shops, and bars closeby. Comfortable rooftop terrace with jacuzzi and small pool that's great during the day when the sun shines.
Spacious rooms that (for my room, at least - a deluxe on floor 4) could use a little refreshing. A new coat of paint and refurb on the fixtures & fittings would be helpful. TV signal not working for many of the channels listed on the in room guide.
Disappointing / lazy housekeeping which only provided the most basic of services. For example, on a 3 night stay toilet paper was never replaced. Glassware which I used each day was never washed. Towels instead of being rolled and placed in the right area were simply folded and placed on the bed. None of this was the end of the world but just, when all added together, gave the impression of laziness.
Breakfast was quite good and so were the gym facilities and wifi worked well.
