Great location, nice size bathroom. Friendly staff

4/5 Good

  • 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.

I like that it's a big space and it is isolated from the noises of other rooms. The pricing is also good per night and where the place is located is perfect.
