This three day trip to Barcelona was a birthday present for my partner who really enjoys the Spanish culture. This particular hotel was chosen as it was situated in the Gothic area of the city and the positive reviews from this website. The reception was friendly and we were quickly checked in and in the lift to our allocated room on the fifth floor overlooking Princesa Street. The room was bright adequately equiped with modern furnishings and spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Comments made by previous guests suggested that it could be noisey but with the window closed no traffic noise could be heard. We were particularly grateful for the helpful reception staff member who made telephone calls on our behalf to confirm departure transport back to the airport.
Our accommodation booking was for bed and breakfast but to say that the breakfast experience was disappointing is an understatement. This resulted from two staff members struggling to cope with the number of guests wanting coffee as the machine was not working consequently a queue formed and it took quite a long time to get a hot drink. The food was typically continental style with additional scrambled egg and bacon however, it took six transits of the toaster to achieve a very lightly toasted bread. The other problem was finding somewhere to sit as as unoccupied tables were stacked with crockery from earlier guests. Whilst we would return to this particular hotel we would forego the breakfast and sample the offerings of the small eateries situated locally.
