We stayed at this hotel for three nights last month. The location was superb, a stone's throw from the Place de la Kataluniya. However, we found the room to be cramped, dark and bare, as was the bathroom. At the price of nearly $300 a day, this was surprising. When we had made our booking, more than 6 weeks prior to our stay, we had specifically asked for a room on one of the higher floors and not overlooking the Rambla. What we got was a first floor room, directly overlooking Rambla de Kataluniya. However, the sleep quality turned out to be fine,
The hotel lobby is stark and unfriendly - surprisingly so, for a building claiming to be "historical" - with an ambiance quite different from that suggested by the pictures on the Internet. The unsatisfactory arrival experience was exacerbated by the girl at the Reception Desk, whose attitude towards guests is cold and unhelpful. She also asked demanded full advance payment on our arrival, which is certainly the hotel's right, but which is usually regarded as discourteous. However, we would like to offer our compliments to the night-to-morning clerk, whose name was Albert, I think, and who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
The breakfast was fine, with a good choice of hot and cold items and omelettes prepared to order,. But the overall experience of our stay was unsatisfactory, especially considering the price.
