Beautiful hotel, but expect a backache in the morning!

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from on June 26, 2008

This hotel is actually very beautiful. We booked it after our cruise because it was close to the port (less than five minutes) and close to Las Ramblas. The staff was extemely friendly, going out of their way to help us. Our room wasn't ready upon disembarking from the cruise, so they gave us complimentary drinks at the bar. The hotel is very clean, with a modern theme. It's close to Las Ramblas, within walking distance, and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy street. Even better, it's only about 20 minutes from the Barcelona airport. The only downside that we experienced was the bed. It was a very firm mattress, to put it politely, not at all what we are used to sleeping on here in the States. As you can imagine, it was a restless night. They do offer several pillow styles, however, attempting to accommodate the pampered traveler. Overall, it was a good experience, but next time will look for reviews that address the bed siutation before booking!
