I generally stay at 4-star hotels or below in Barcelona, however, stayed at this five-star establishment this time. This hotel itself is an iconic landmark with the beautiful facade, that makes the visit/stay very pleasant. Located in safe and again, 'pleasant' neighbourhood of Gracia, the hotel suits well the travellers who are 'done' with La Rambra or the Port's areas. (N.B. It still is easy walking distance to La Rambra).
As noted in some reviews, some guests may find it noisy as it is after all located in a lively area but I personally did not have the problem.
Staff are all professional, not only efficient but also mostly with good friendliness. I particularly appreciated the helpfulness of one of the reception/concierge service staff as she added extra information/suggestions on top of the basic answers to my questions. This was one of the best experience at this hotel, because, while one would always find five-star hotel concierge 'efficient' but not always particularly friendly or value-added.
Breakfast buffet was of the quality you would expect from this class of hotel. Good selection and service.
Drinks on the roof terrace is quite expensive but certainly worth a visit - the view is superb.
If I am to point out one negative quality, housekeeping was rather inconsistent. Some amenities that were more than half-used were not filled. The box which is supposed to have chocolate for night was left empty for the first night. The towel I intentionally left over bidet was NOT replaced at the evening service but rather hung back on the rail. - All of these are not something that would totally spoil the stay, however, not something one expect to see at a five-star hotel.
A classic five-star hotel where you get what you would expect from a five-star establishment. Recommended.
