Arrived in Barcelona with my partner and caught the Aero-bus straight to the hotel. Was greeted by lovely reception staff and checked in straight away. Check in was at 3pm but we arrived at 12:30ish and it was fine. We were given a room on the 5th floor without a view and also we weren't too comfortable on the bathroom being so open. Was disappointed about the view as I was looking forward to seeing the city buzzing for the Sant Jordi festival.
Visited reception again to see if they had another room available, the lady at reception alerted me that the only room with a view available was on the 10th floor in the suite with the balcony for an extra 80 euros. I couldn't turn it down! I thought I was grabbing a bargain and was over the moon! The suite was absolutely lovely, couldn't fault it at all! Amazing view of the city. It really made the holiday. The shocker was when it came to checking out. I was hit with a bill for 240 euros. What the receptionist failed to mention was that it was 80 euros A NIGHT. I was in shock and didn't want my partner to realise the mistake I made so I kept my mouth, swallowed my pride and politely paid. I knew it was too good to be true.
REGARDLESS of that event, the stay was amazing, I loved the central location and the staff in the hotel were extremely helpful. La Rambla and Passa de Gracia were just a second away and the Barcelonita beach was only a 8 euro taxi ride away. Plenty of restaurants/shops/takeaways just a walk away. Had an issue with the electric blinds not closing and they had the repairman fixing it within the hour (it wasnt a small job either). The hotel was clean, modern, quiet and exactly what I was after.
