It's a great hotel. Its perfect for family, couples, singles, and business trips. Its locate is the center of the city so transportation is easily. The room are propionate and the shower are great. However the bathrooms could be updated. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The staff are multilingual. The resturant in the hotel is ok. Very pricey and not a big food selection. The mini bar in the room and the snacks are pricey and horrible.

The staff, from Check In to Check out, were first class - helping my family with difficulties they faced following my fall that resulted in a stay in hospital. Their experience of the buffet breakfast and Afternoon Tea was excellent. We will definitely return.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Very close to Las Ramblas which was nice. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. The cocktail master class with Tony was really great, highly recommend. Unfortunately we were on the third floor on the Main Street so it was quite loud at all times of the day and night. If city noise and people noise is bothersome to you I would request a higher floor and perhaps on the back side of the hotel instead. The intercontinental breakfast was quite extensive, we enjoyed that each morning of our stay.
