    Amazing time in Barcelona!
    The hotel was great. Staff was very accommodating. We got there in the morning room was not going to be ready until 3pm. They told us there are showers on the roof top by the pool. Towels provided. We were able to freshen up and start our sight seeing. Great location, walking distance to Las Rambles major tourist area. Metro steps away and very user friendly!
