Nothing to show.
The hotel has a wonderful old-world glamour with extremely high ceilings throughout, generous sized rooms, amenities, comfy beds and wonderful marble bathrooms. For all these incredible amenities, the stand out feature we loved the most came from the incredible staff. We felt totally spoiled by their generosity and kindness. Ploy was working reception and seemed to be there whenever we had a question or needed any help, always so friendly and helpful. Ana, Rosa and all their collages in the restaurant work very hard to cater to everything you could possibly want despite being clearly very busy. Some of the best times we had were in the unassuming ground floor bar where the VERY talented and engaging professionals whip up some near-perfect cocktails. Being in the heart of central Barcelona, we should probably have ventured out for drinks in some of the hundreds of nearby bars but the team were so good, we kept coming back. Pablo, Elias, Eyder and Cesar, you are amazing! Make sure you check out the spa downstairs, maybe avoid early evening if you want to avoid the crowds and make sure you enjoy the sunset on the rooftop, if you manage to make it before the bar closes, the drinks are also brilliant. Can't wait to come back, won't stay anywhere else in Barcelona from now on.
Absolutely top class, attention to detail in the design of hotel was exceptional, the staff are so helpful and and always seem in a good mood. The spa was amazing to have access to, rooftop pools looked great but it was January. And the breakfast was a huge selection and on top of all that smack in the centre of everything. You wont top this place.
Hotel is outstanding, all is well established, with a great atmosphere. I would like to highlight the excellent service provided by the Hotel's team, they are really customer oriented, very kind and super reactive. Big Thanks after this "problem free week"
