Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! The location- PERFECT! It is close enough to walk to the beach and right in the Gothic Quarter! It was so nice venturing out and exploring. My mom and I walked everywhere- Las Ramblas, Barceloneta Beach, etc. The staff- SO FRIENDLY! They helped us locate a Covid testing center (we needed a test to get back into the U.S.) and even printed our results. They helped us locate things on a map and gave us insider tips of the do's and don'ts of where to go! The room- SO CLEAN! Cleaning service came twice a day and kept our room spotless. The hotel- GORGEOUS! The view on the rooftop.... I mean c'mon! It's spectacular! Overall, my mother (58 years old) and I (26 years old) loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

One of the best hotel experiences
Even though we arrived early, the front desk welcomed us with champagne and allowed us to check-in, while also providing us with a room upgrade. After our bags were brought to our room, we we brought another bottle of cava and given a portable wifi router to use throughout the city. The front desk was very helpful in trying to contact a club after having lost personal items there. The rooftop is beautiful.
