Went to Barcelona to watch the classic Champions League semi between Barca and Chelsea. This hotel is in an exceptional location, with 2 metro stops in an easy walking distance. I arrived at 11.30 am on a Monday but could not be accommodated "early". I was disappointed that no effort was even made to check - I was simply told to deposit my bag and come back after 2pm. In general, I found the staff competent but not exceptional, effective but not friendly. When I did check in, the room was well furnished and of a decent size (Executive King). It was quite dark due to facing a small internal courtyard. Sleep quality was excellent. The breakfast was also brilliant, with a wide choice of delicious offerings, including typically Spanish choices. All things considered, I would stay here again but probably want to choose my room more carefully for a longer stay.
