    Luxury Hotel in great location
    This is a great hotel, for sure deserves the 5 starts rating. The location is super. close to all main attractions starting from Catalunya sq, La Rambla, Gothic area, Sagarda Familia, Gaudi's Batllo (25 min walk). lots of great restaurants near by, be sure to check out the El Nacionale. The staff was helpful with any question and helped us reserve restaurants, Taxis, Flamenco show and whatever we needs. Breakfast is good and rich with lots of variety and nice things starting from Fruits, pastries, bread, cheese, sausage and more. Rooms are large and clean with turn down service at bight and complimentary water every day. all in all a great stay!!!

    loved it!
    Gorgeous, elegant old dame of a hotel. All the accommodations were excellent and the concierge, Alexis, was superb. Front desk upgraded Asked to a Junior suite after we inform them it was our anniversary. They also sent us a bottle of cava. Can’t say enough great things about this hotel and the staff.

    Barcelona business trip
    I stayed 3 nights in this hotel while on a business trip. Generally a nice hotel. However very disappointed with my room as I had requested a quieter room in order to be able to get some good sleep after very busy days. I was offered a room facing main road. I brought to the attention of the lady who was checking me in that I had requested quiet room. She ensured me the double glazing window will stop all noises. But it was absolutely wrong and misleading. Every night I was woken up at least 6-7 time from street noises. Cars, motor bikes, police. Ambulance. Drunk people etc,,,
