                      The location is nice.

                      The room looks so cheap, and staff was not friendly.

                      I liked the proximity to shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants.

                      I found the beds uncomfortable. I also do not understand the concept of having 2 single beds pushed together. Why not have a full size bed? We are married & not used to sleeping in separate beds. I know the beds are side by side, but it is not the same as sleeping in the same bed.

                      Our room faced the square with the Cathedral but the double glaze doors blocked out excessive noise. The hotel is also very central, we were able to walk to all the sights we wanted to see.

                      Location was good, the view (5th floor view of the Barcelona Cathedral) with open french type windows, and the restaurant/bar was convenient, offered good choices and excellent food. The room was very well equipped and traditional in style.

                      The bed was not a King (too small) and the bedding could be updated but was clean and comfortable. Did not like the bathtub/shower because it did not have a proper enclosure so the water got all over the bathroom floor. Would have liked to have had an iron in the room.

                      Competent, helpful, knowledgeable and cheerful staff. Highly recommend the staff and the hotel.

                      Nothing to complain about at all, other than the little bit of noise that inevitably comes with being right at the heart of things.

                      The location of the hotel was excellent, in the old quarter walking distance to the major attractions. The rooms were modern and nicely decorated.

                      The wireless internet signal was too weak for reception in the rooms so I had to sit in the lobby area to get a connection. The hotel can be a little noisy but it did not trouble me too much.
