3 night break

We stayed here for 3 nights and were not disapointed. It is the perfect location for everything but just far away enough from the hustle and bustle. From here it is walkable to all sights - beach, ramblas, park, Sagrada Famalia, even Parc Guell! The roof bar was amazing, definitely the best feature of the hotel although the pool is freezing!!! Staff were helpful, and the Avalon restaurant serves the best meals! As a couple we thoroughly enjoyed staying here.

Great Location Nice Service

Very nice hotel in appearance. Great location. Great staff that was helpful, cordial and concerned. I don't like to complain, however, a 5 star accommodation should not have the kind of concerns we experienced. The shower stall leaked onto the tile floor of the bathroom significantly. Requiring towels to sop up the mess. Shower staff flooring, drain grate and caulking was old looking, rusty, and some mildew. Doors throughout the floor slammed incessantly and boomed very loudly. The TV was was very difficult to connect, taking 45 minutes to figure out how to receive. I did not contact staff nor address issues because it was an overnight stay and an early rush to the airport. I would recommend this hotel with hesitancy because these issues need to be addressed. Otherwise, it could be a wonderful option.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Airport transportation is available via an airport shuttle that runs very regularly at Place Catalunya only a few blocks away if you are willing to walk and drag luggage. A great, inexpensive alternative to a pricey taxi ride. Tickets can be purchased at a machine at the shuttle stop. This information is not regularly provided because taxi's lose out.

Fantastic Hotel

Everything worked out superbly at this hotel. We arrived to the hotel at 10 am, got an upgraded room right away. Staff was very helpful. Pool and bar at the roof are small but really elegant! What strike me the most, were the little details. Our room was delivered little suprises our whole visit. Complimentary water, muffins, sweets and for the ladies, facial moisturizer for night. It's not a big deal for the hotel, but it makes you feel welcomed guest.

I rarely stay in Hotels in barcelona

I rarely stay in Hotels in barcelona given that the short term apartment rental market is a great option. Positive comments: he hotel is very central and a nice place for first time visitors, staff is very friendly, room service is very reasonably priced, rooms are clean, can be on the dark side unless you get a city room with several windows. Negative comments: cleanign service (not hotel staff) is very noisy, if you want to sleep in you won't have much luck. The walls are very thin, you hear the slamming doors and beds being moved around to clean. Wifi is not free, even in the lobby. The pool/terrace is much smaller than the image you see on the internet. Overall a nice hotel, but not sure I would stay again given the noise.
