You will not be disappointed here! The staff was so so nice and attended with patience to our every need, from plugging my blackberry into their computer to charge it (my charger was in my luggage lost by the airline) to booking flamenco show tickets for us. They also speak good English (and tolerated my attempts at Spanish). The location was perfect for us: in the middle of all the action and across the Catalunya Plaza from Las Ramblas, the beautiful tree-lined median parkway. The staff helped me figure out how to get the metro to the train to the beach town of Sitges. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. The air conditioning worked! Blissful! The room is fairly small and dark. The shower is heavenly! Though the hotel is basically very clean, we had two cleanliness issues discovered in our room and the staff handled them quickly. European hotels are often not as nice as US hotels with the same "star" ratings. I find the Comfort Inn and Hampton Inn type hotels in the US nicer than most of the "four and five star luxury hotels" in Europe. But as long as you have realistic expectations, you will surely be pleased by this very nice hotel... especially the staff!!!
