Room was kept clean, towels and amenities, such as great size of towels and bathrobes provided, were excellent. Staff was very helpful and cheerful. Size of room very comfortable and having kitchen was great. Great location in the Gothic area, but be aware transportation from airport may not bring you to the hotel entrance. You may have to walk.

Fantastic Hotel, Convenient to Everything

Pros: Everything was perfect!
Cons: The noise level on the plaza early into the morning, but this is nothing the hotel can control and their soundproofing is pretty good.
Location: This hotel is perfectly located for almost all of the major sights, or connecting to them in Barcelona.
We come to Europe every April and try to stay in a better, smaller hotel that is convenient to most sights. We have had some fantastic stays in other cities, but this is definitely a contender for the top spot in every way. The property is gorgeous and beautifully appointed and designed. The small kitchen and dining area were a first for us and we loved it. The staff were all exceptional and definitely added to the overall joy of our stay. One caution, the plaza at the rear of the hotel is very noisy, until dawn. The windows at the hotel are very good at keeping out noise, but if you need complete silence to sleep, maybe this is not the part of town for you.
