Just back from a 3 night stay in Barcelona at the H10 Urquinaona Plaza hotel. It was a fantastic stay and we will definitely be returning there again. Everything about the hotel was spot on. I'm struggling to think of anything that could be improved upon.
The staff were friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. We had an early flight so got there at 11am. They took our luggage and went to the rooftop pool (plunge pool) until we could check in at 3pm. During our stay we were recommend several restaurants and bars to go to from a really nice male receptionist. We went to one restaurant, Patron, which was fantastic!
The rooftop area was lovely and just what we wanted. It's not big but we knew that before we arrived. There are 8 sun loungers which get pretty busy but there are other chairs and deck chairs as well. If you want a hotel just to sit by the pool then this wouldn't be a hotel for you. The pool is small and shallow. It is called a plunge pool and that's exactly what it is!
We managed to get an upgrade to a superior room with a terrace (note that the terraces are not on the ground floor. It's basically a large balcony looking out to the rear of the hotel). This was great for us and worth the extra money. It was quiet and the terrace was lovely.
The hotel has been open for a year and it still looks brand new. It's spotlessly clean!
I was celebrating my 30th birthday and they suprised us with a bottle of Cava on the day which was a lovely touch.
The hotel is in a great central location. 5-10 minutes from Plaza Catalunya, Les Rambles and the Gothic area. We walked almost everywhere.
Overall this is the perfect city break hotel.
