Stayed for 3 nights in July. This hotel is in a fantastic location on La Ramblas and is easy to get to from the Airport. We took the regular bus service leaving every 5 minutes from the Terminal and walked the very short distance from Playa Catalunya to the hotel.
The hotel smells of the Old World luxury which has been lost in big chain hotel groups. The hotel staff make you feel very welcome without being pushy. Our room was compact rather than big, had all mod cons, came with the little extras you expect from this price level and had the bonus of a private terrace.
Without a doubt, the best facility is the hotel rooftop with its huge terrace area, bar, restaurant and pool. You can easily spend the whole day relaxing, bathing, eating and drinking without the need to go out and explore the City. We loved the option of being able to do a bit of both, soaking up the sun for a while and then exploring the City for a few hours. Providing the weather is good, you can have a short stay and come away feeling rejuvenated.
We did not eat any dinners at the hotel as the choice of restaurants within walking distance is abundant.
