Stayed for 2 nights , Sept 2011 before going on a cruise. The hotel is well situated, a 4 minute walk from the Cathedral, lots of restaurants, bars, shops just around the corner. The hotel is slightly dated but clean and comfortable. The reception & bar staff were efficient and helpful and spoke a multitude of languages. The buffet breakfast was adequate, the usual assortment of fruit, cereal, meat, cheese, yoghurts, pastries, bread, fruit juice, tea, coffee & bottled water. The hotel was busy and at busy times the dining room could not accommodate everyone, which resulted in people cueing at the entrance to the dining room. The hotel pool and sun deck was a bonus and pleasant to relax on after a full day of sightseeing. The bar prices in the hotel were average for soft drinks and beer, but be aware that shorts are very expensive (vodka & coke and a gin & tonic was 25 euros !) A very interesting city, Segrada Familia is a must. The many reports and warnings about pick pockets are real. We personally did not experience any problems, but I did not use a handbag and my husband wore a money belt (inside his trousers) however we heard many stories of people being robbed, in railway/tube stations, on the street, in restaurants & shops, so please take the warnings seriously and take sensible precautions, as theft spoiled many people's stay in the city, which is a great shame as it is a beautiful and interesting city, with much to offer.
