We searched for weeks at tripadvisor and bookings.com for a nice 4 or 5 starts hotel for a good price. All the hotels had some bad comments, or people not friendly, or an old hotel looking hotel with bad food.
This one, had non of them, so I had to try it out.
And it was perfect, the rooms are very nice and clean.
We had a double room with a terras. The bed was great, the television was a new one, and big enough with USB connections, so we could look our own movies.
The douche was also great, it was a raindouche, with enough pressure for the water.
We tried also room service, great service, for not much money.
The breakfast was nice, there was al lot to choose from, from english breakfast to spanish. Everything was fresh, and even 5 minutes before closing time, they were filling up the food.
The reception was also friendly, and they were giving us all the information we wanted about Barcelona.
On the top of the roof, was a swimming pool, a very beautifull one! But this time of the year it was cold. So we didnt used it.
The location of the hotel is also very good, it's one block away from the ramblas the catalunya, and only 5minutes of placa catalunya.
So this hotel, made our visit to Barcelona great!!!!
We are coming back ;)
