Fodor's Review

White marble, etched glass, and carved woodwork blend into a handsome Art Nouveau interior in this hotel. Rooms are somewhat less grand, but they do have marble floors and firm beds. The narrow street just below Plaça de Catalunya is pedestrian-only but can still get noisy at night; ask for a room in back.

Quiet but noisy. How can that be ?

For: Excellent location, quiet street,comfortable beds, lift works. Against: Stone/tiled floors everywhere look great but you hear everything. Next room's shower running at 3am sounded even louder than mine at home (when I'm in it !!!). A very young baby woke regularly (? 3 floors below) at 5 am. Comment: Ultimately, the most important aspect of a hotel stay is whether you get a good night's sleep. Four of us (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed for

four nights in two separate rooms. None of us had a restful night. Conclusion: Now I know why Holiday Inn/ Novotel etc build hotels with thick walls and carpet everywhere.

Helpful and friendly staff in very central location

We stayed here in two different rooms for three nights in July 2002. The first room was right in the front and was spacious, but was noisy from the people traffic below. The second room was small and a little cramped, but much more quiet. Hotel itself was a little disappointing in appearance, but the service more than made up for any other deficiencies. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and spoke several different languages without

attitude! It was definitely the best service we received in a two-week trip thru Spain. The location is also a big plus for tourists as it's right by Placa de Cataluna. However, parking around here is practically impossible. This hotel is also listed in Rick Steve's, so we believe because of it, gets a lot of Americans, but not exclusively Americans. Plus, if you have the book and you booked directly with the hotel, you can get a 10% discount.
