Our hotel in Barcelona wants to know what kind of sheets we want....??

We are splurging at the Hotel Neri. Just got this email..not sure what to answer. BTW they also asked what kind of music we like...wow! This is nothing like our other hotels.
Any suggestions on the sheets? I think linden is linen.

Our staff manager would be delighted to customize your room according to your preferences:
Bedding Quilts ___ Linden sheets ___ Satin sheets ___ Cotton sheets ___
Pillows Feather ___ Foam ___ Latex ___

What: no choice of duvet cover fabric?

And does the music choice include silence?

Latex beds are huge in Spain, so latex pillows are considered lux items. I personally do not like them.

As for the bedding, linden means linen, and cotton are your standard cotton hotel sheets.

Neri is one of the best and they are not kidding. When they say satin, they mean it, and if you are at all familiar with satin sheets and are going with someone to share them with, I highly recommend them.

Were Neri writing me, I would say: feather pillows, 2 per person, satin sheets, and quilts as opposed to comforters as I love that weight.

Do not wear satin PJ's with satin sheets, grave danger of flying out the slightest movement!

Ask the Neri to be sure to give you their room which admits the most light..you'll understand after you get there.

Yes I heard the rooms are very dark and hard to read in them. I have a book light...! Everything else sounds so good about the hotel I am hoping this won't impact the visit.

We are also staying at the Hotel Neri. How are you getting to the hotel from the airport? Any other recommendations besides bringing a book light?
