It's a luxury hotel and I have no idea why this is not a 5 stars hotel; it could be because the Hotel lacks an outdoor swimming pool.
My recommendation for those who plan to stay at the Hotel is to avoid staying in rooms overlooking the La Rambla; not only because of the noise of the busy strip but most importantly because of the underground metro, which passes under the La Rambla every 2 minutes and mildly shakes everything on top of it. This all boils down to the fact that the sound isolation in the Hotel may need some improvement.
However, again this is one of the most luxury hotels I have ever been to in Europe, and far much better than five stars hotels in Spain itself. Rooms are spacious and the location of the Hotel is the best in Barcelona.
