Location was great. Did not have the breakfast. Did take advantage of the free drink at the roof bar. Very nice, great view.
No window to the outdoors, only to a light shaft. No view of anything from our room.

Poor
Air-conditioning; if you could call it that was dreadful. I slept with the bathroom window; as well as one of the windows in the room open both evenings. When brought to our room, I asked if the air-conditioning could be raised. The room was VERY WARM when we arrived. Gentleman asked “you want it cooler in here”? I said yes, please. He walked over to the thermostat , I thought, should cool down soon. My son,I sat in the lobby where it was very cool; unlike our room. My son is an engineer. Thermostat was fixed at a specific temperature and could not be lowered.
When you advertise air-conditioned room, WiFi in room, that is what you expect. Sept. 14-16 were very warm days, with high humidity. WiFi very spotty. Yes, you have 2 computers in your lobby. If I wanted to use a public computer, I would not have traveled 4,000 miles with a laptop.

Breakfast was wonderful and the dining staff were very attentive! The room was clean and quiet. Would definitely stay there again.
Seemed like a late check-in for those of us arriving on international flights that seem to come in the very early morning. You can store luggage there but it’s hard to freshen up to enjoy sightseeing on a hot summer’s day!

Large room that was spotlessly clean. Walking distance from Las Ramblas, the beach, tour buses etc.
The only issue was the room was dark due to no natural light coming into the room.

HAD BREAKFAST ONCE AND IT WASN'T THAT GREAT. THE LOCATION HOWEVER IS AMAZING. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE VISITING BARCELONA. STAFF VERY HELPFUL. LOCATION OF HOTEL PERFECT.
WHOEVER WAS IN CHARGE OF CLEANING THE ROOM WAS NOT VERY GOOD. I COULD WALK ON THE FLOOR WITHOUT SHOES IN THE ROOM THROUGHOUT MY STAY.

Excellent breakfast and teatime in the afternoon. Extremely friendly and service minded staff that supported with everything you could ask about.
Noisy street outside the hotel but it was completely quite in the room.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had great choice and was lovely. Atmosphere on a Sunday morning with the live guitar and singer was a wonderful touch.
The rooms we had were a bit old and require modernising and in places fixing furniture. They had a poor view of other peoples properties and their washing lines. The area behind the hotel was not very pleasant and made us feel vulnerable. I wouldn't stay in El Ravel area (or even on the edge of it) again.
