Where do I start... The location, the staff, the cleanliness, the food, the drinks, the pool... all amazing!
Nothing at all!!
Air-conditioning; if you could call it that was dreadful. I slept with the bathroom window; as well as one of the windows in the room open both evenings. When brought to our room, I asked if the air-conditioning could be raised. The room was VERY WARM when we arrived. Gentleman asked “you want it cooler in here”? I said yes, please. He walked over to the thermostat , I thought, should cool down soon. My son,I sat in the lobby where it was very cool; unlike our room. My son is an engineer. Thermostat was fixed at a specific temperature and could not be lowered.
When you advertise air-conditioned room, WiFi in room, that is what you expect. Sept. 14-16 were very warm days, with high humidity. WiFi very spotty. Yes, you have 2 computers in your lobby. If I wanted to use a public computer, I would not have traveled 4,000 miles with a laptop.
Great location, central enough.
Large room that was spotlessly clean. Walking distance from Las Ramblas, the beach, tour buses etc.
The only issue was the room was dark due to no natural light coming into the room.
HAD BREAKFAST ONCE AND IT WASN'T THAT GREAT. THE LOCATION HOWEVER IS AMAZING. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE VISITING BARCELONA. STAFF VERY HELPFUL. LOCATION OF HOTEL PERFECT.
WHOEVER WAS IN CHARGE OF CLEANING THE ROOM WAS NOT VERY GOOD. I COULD WALK ON THE FLOOR WITHOUT SHOES IN THE ROOM THROUGHOUT MY STAY.
