This was a great pick for Barcelona. The room was small but honestly didn't really need much, I mean when in Spain how much time do you plan on being in there. Great shower head. Very modern & chic. Very friendly staff. Free computers with internet service. Cool bar area with a Piano. The location was great a 10 minute walk to the Las Ramblas & down the block from a Metro to take you to the other areas. It was centrally located but not in the heart of the action which can sometimes be noisy. I have traveled many times to Europe & the only thing that gets me are the two double beds pushed together to make a king, but they always seem to separate in the middle of the night and it's hard to cuddle with your partner. Ha! And I would say that the room service food although was delicious...there wasn't much of a selection, mainly cold tapas...actually come to think of it..only cold tapas. I would recommend going to Ibericum Restaurant - when you get out of the hotel make a left & the next street make a right - restaurant is small & sneaks right up to on you on your left. It's the place the locals go to (especially chef's) after their shift is over. Very low key but amazing service, fantastic authentic food & great vino. Highly recommend. But great hotel, great price for what you get & would highly recommend it.
