The hotel was beautiful. The price was expensive but expected treatment to go with the price hence booking here and not the meridian over the road. Room was spotless, sweet balcony, noise from the station below vibrated through the room and was never mentioned but due to cocktails in the square managed to sleep through. Breakfast was standard, for the price it would have been nice to have a chef present or at least freshly cooked eggs and not beans, eggs etc. Left on a hot plate. Cava available but not pointed out and not seen until leaving where it was left at the entrance rather than the buffet table. Better breakfast in a premier inn I’m afraid. The bed was so comfortable and crisp and fresh. The doormen were great. Nearly missed our train due to lack of information from reception. Great cab driver saved the day!

Hotel's Favourite
Wow! What a hotel! We visited Barcelona last July and revisited again this July 2021 and stayed at this divine hotel. Having arrived during the night approx 12.30am we were unsure what we would be met with but thankfully we were greeted and checked in by the lovely ‘Farran’ of whom was kind, professional and incredibly helpful whilst making us laugh. He gave us everything we needed and from then on we knew this hotel was special thanks to him. The rooftop terrace and pool is stunning, spectacular views over the city and even though it was on reduced hours due to covid it was still amazing. We enjoyed many bottles of fizz on the rooftop thanks to the lovely bar team, bottle of sparkling Anna is delicious (staff recommendation) and was the perfect tipple whilst watching the sunset. Our bedroom was always kept immaculate and the team provided everything we needed during our stay. Added bonus having an indoor pool, that’s fun! We had breakfast included which had everything from cheeses, hams, fruit, fresh pastries, yogurts, hot foot to even chocolate puddings! We were greeted by a gorgeous lady called ‘Mercedes’ of whom was SO friendly and kind also, she gave us a glass of cava at breakfast and offered any assistance with covid testing etc. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to couples and can’t WAIT to return.

The hotel is just beautiful. Comfortable and elegant. The room was comfortable. The TV was not working properly but it didn't matter too much. Now the gems are the roof and the spa. We had so much relax time. I can't complete the review without talking about the staff, all of them very affable and helpful. The reception area took care of us. The bartenders and serves on the Roof bar were awesome. I recommend this hotel 💯 close to everything but hidden away from the crowds.

Hotel is a really high standard for 4 star. Panoramic views of the city. Spotless everywhere with very professional and friendly staff. Beds were so comfy and the amenities are great, especially the heated indoor spa pool for cooler days! Can't leave a review without mentioning the location - eat, drink, shop, sight see all at the doorstep of the hotel. Really recommend!
