Very friendly and professional personal. The rooms are very clean. The hotel is very good located close to Plaza Jaume and Plaza Real, between de Ramblas and Via Laetana, but the street where it is located is narrow and quiet. It is possible to go on foot to the beaches, to Paseo de Gracia, Plaza de Cataluña, to the Cathedral,...
