We chose this hotel for its incredible view of course, just amazing over the whole city! That was the best thing! The service is ok too, but far from being a true luxury hotel, 4star max. First, the parking, the exit/entrance to the parking is not of a luxury hotel, it`s super basic. Then, the rooms. Really weird glass doors for the toilet and sink with no doors, small towels, no toothpaste/toothbrush kit (which you get even in a 3-star hotel). But again, the view is just incredible! The complimentary cava bottle was nice, although it costs like 5 euros in Mercadona, and that for a 350 euros room? Come on guys, you can do better! The spa. I`d say it was overcrowded, there were 4 couples at the same time but most of the time was spent in the jacuzzi which is too small for so many people. The big pool was really cold! Impossible to get into the water! Totally unacceptable for a 5star hotel. As for the breakfast, I`d like to highlight that the orange juice that was offered was NOT freshly squeezed! But for sure it was with water and sugar added, didn't taste like an orange fresh at all! Again, not good for a 5 star. Finally, the checkout experience was bad, too many people and spent like 20 min a queue. Again, are you are a 5-star luxury hotel or what? To sum up, I can say that we enjoyed our stay mostly because of the most amazing views in Barcelona (literally spent most of our time by the window). Lots of things to improve to become a real 5 star!

Dear 707antoninap, Thank you for bringing this experience to our attention, I would very much like to apologize for this poor level of service and also have the opportunity to follow up with our teams. This I of course agree is not up to our usual standard and I hope to have the opportunity to prove this to you in the future. Again thank you for your feedback and please do not hesitate to contact me personally if you need any kind of assistance. Sincerely, Pep Malla

This hotel is really amazing. From the best I can tell, the hotel has zero rooms with a bad view. I have had a few experiences with smug staff; but Ive had some really good ones too. I will try to stay here every time in BCN.
