Can I move in?
The staff was amazing. Super helpful and friendly. The hotel was clean and the hotel bar/pool was gorgeous. No complaints whatsoever. My only wish was I could have stayed longer.

Great rooftop view
Great rooftop pool and bar and an amazing location. Friendly service with modern rooms in a historical part of the city.

Good 6.0
Not a 5 Star Experience
Five star prices but not five star service or room appointments. Great location and comfortable bed but was disappointed with the amenities, room size, and inconsistent service. Terrible restaurant recommendations from the concierge as well. There were missteps every single day of the 7 day stay at this property which I have never experienced previously at other 5 star properties in Europe. Rooftop bar was extremely subdued and rather boring.

Very Good 8.0
Walkable to good restaurants, beach and shops
Included breakfast is very nice with many choices and great coffee service. The rooftop pool and bar provides a quiet respite and great view. We thought it would be overly crowded, but we always found a shady seat. The service is good and the food and drink options are great. The rooms are typically small but clean and well-appointed. We didn't love the bathroom separation of only a curtain and sliding door-very little privacy. The staff is friendly and always ready with a cup of coffee or bottle of water. Check-in is 2:00pm, but our rooms weren't ready until 3:30pm and 4:30pm. This was very unsatisfactory as we had come overnight from the states and had almost no sleep on the plane. It was hot and we were exhausted, so we went to the rooftop and dozed for hours until our rooms were ready. I'm wondering if it's because we got a deeply discounted rate through The walls are thin and we heard water running through the pipes late into the night, and the Barcelona Cathedral bells rings every 15 minutes 24 hours a day. I downloaded a white noise app to be able to sleep. The beds are comfortable--pillows could be better. The temperature control in the rooms is very good. The concierge service was adequate but not 5 star--mainly gave advice but there was no hands-on arrangement of activities, and no good direction on the best place to exchange money. Location is great--walkable to many good restaurants, shops and the beach. We rarely used taxis.
