we wanted a good 4 star hotel in a good location in barcelona to celebrate the new year and that is exactly what we found at this hotel.The reception staff were excellent at all times.Other staff were good as well.The public areas are 4 star as are the restaurant and bar.There is also a nice area outside to sit and enjoy a drink or a meal.We booked direct with the hotel and if you book in advance you receive a discount which made it cheaper than all the other hotel sales sites.We booked a standard room overlooking the cathedral and requested a room on the upper floors with unobstructed views of the cathedral and our room was on the 3rd floor with a standing balcony and fantastic view.The room was again 4 star with 5 star view.The hotel is in a great location surrounded by bars,shops,restaurants etc and 5 mins walk to las ramblas.I found nothing to critiscise and this hotel was exactly what we were looking for and if i returned to barcelona i would return without considering other hotels.
