How to Get There
We booked our room 8 months in advance wanting a "corner room" for the extra windows. We dropped off our bags early in the AM and proceeded to explore the city all day. On our return we were taken to not a corner room and was told it was an upgrade. The confusion was if you look at the website the corner room is more than the room they gave us. After 30 minutes of debate I gave up as there were no corner rooms available and the room we had would be fine. Manager was apologetic and stood by it was an upgrade. We also were told three different times that the pool would close so this was also confusing and frustrating. Manager did give us a discount and also sent champaign and strawberries to our room which we appreciated.
- Great staff overall
- Great Location
- Comfortable bed
- Amazing view from pool area
- Positive manager response to issue
Areas to Improve
- Find a way to update the website so the rooms a reflected correctly
- Make sure staff know when pool actually closes
- Deliver bags to room in advance when they have been there all day (why are you making me wait again for them?)
- Don't create what I call fake demand by acting like you are doing a favor by calling the on site restaurant to "get us a table" and make it seem like a big deal when it was in fact empty. (we did not eat there due to this)
Overall I still rate this hotel as excellent and would stay there again.
What a splendid high-class hotel in the heart of Barcelona: very central but not right in the middle of annoying tourist streams, inviting scent at the entrance that fills the entire air-conditioned lobby to seek refuge after walking in the hot-humid city, extremely charming staff at all levels, roof-top bar with pool, wonderful rooms with attentive service, and and and ….
Very important is also a beautiful entrance-level restaurant merging food/lobby/comfort zone/museum all at once: nice food choices in midst of beautiful original Miró’s on display…
Definitely a great choice when coming back to Barcelona which this time really conquered my heart!
P.S. … would not recommend to touch the Miró’s as they are heavily secured …

We stayed here a few weeks ago for three nights prior to a Med cruise. The hotel was just great. Clean, well kept and the service was also top notch. The location couldn't be beat as it was near great restaurants, shopping and walking distance to many sights. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
