I stayed in this hotel in late March.I liked the hotel very much.The rooms were spotless and the cleaning staff,seemed to be working all the time and they were so pleasant.The location is absolutely great,directly across a huge pedestrianised square from the main cathedral.Also,very close to La Rambla,just a few narrow,charming side streets away.The hotel is in the gothic area and exploring this is interesting.Also,I discovered it is only a few minutes walk from the Playa Catalunya.This is a really nice open area and the best part is that you can get a bus from there to the airport (both terminals) for less than 7 euros,buses run every 20 mins or less.The hotel itself was comfortable and relaxing and the staff were helpful and friendly.I just had one small quibble,I wanted to check in and print my flight boarding card,but the hotel does not have any facility available for this,however a very helpful member of staff gave me directions to an internet cafe.However,I must say that I enjoyed this hotel and would definitely stay there again
