8/10 Very good

Nice but not 5 stars
Stayed in the Family suite to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday for 4 nights while staying in Barcelona. The hotel was nice, the rooms were large and clean. My reasons for not being able to give a 5 star review, the breakfast restaurant in the morning is in a tent outside which is cold, they have space heaters but for the amount of money for the hotel and the 35 Euros a person for breakfast no one should be cold eating breakfast. Also we asked the front desk for a small fridge or microwave for our room for my toddlers milk and they did not have any. I have stayed in way less nicer hotels and nicer ones and all have no problem bringing a microwave or already have a small fridge for use. Also when I asked them to come have someone take the baby crib out because we didn’t need it and it was in the way, no one ever came. So we ended up taking it out ourselves and putting it in the hallway. For a 5 star expensive hotel, I expect those things to be taken care of. So I don’t think its worth the 5 stars, there are better 5 star hotels we have stayed at.
