Great Eixample hotel, comfortable and friendly.
Great experience in this comfy hotel. Nice room with cool AC in hot summer, friendly staff (very helpful with taxis, directions, etc), and location is convenient without being TOO close to the Ramblas, etc. Neighborhood had plenty of restaurants, cafes, shopping, transit, museums, etc. Hotel room was clean, bed comfortable, and spacious room. I'd skip the free wine and juice in the afternoons... it's pretty bad. Nice gesture, though. Didn't use the pool or "gym" area, so cannot review those. Like the lobby and in-room artwork. Cool African masks throughout.
