check in staff was excellent, good views from the top terrace level, rooms were very modern and clean. the hotel breakfast had a full range of local and american foods from scrambeled eggs, bacon, fresh breads, fresh fruits, fresh dognuts and pasteries. It is located on the west side of old gothic section of the city and most sites are in walking distance. The room price was very resonable, they put us on the 8th floor which had a decent view. The cruise port was about 6 minutes away.

Close to Las Rambla, clean, great breakfast with a fresh variation. One of few hotel breakfasts with fresh juice that’s not made from concentrate. Nice fresh fruits everyday and a variation of desserts.

Very good hotel with excellent breakfast food and its service. Only the scrambled eggs are made out of powder, so they are not edible. That should be changed. Localization ideal for a visit connected with a concert at Palau Sant Jordi and some sightseeing - lines L2 and L3 just in front of a building. Room as in the description. Only the room service once entered without waiting even a little bit after knocking.
