Excellent location adjacent to Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas. Room was very comfortable, with modern bathroom and large window with French balcony. Service is prompt and congenial. The included breakfast is ordered from a menu, but there are many choices and you can eat as much as you like. Taxi stand next to the hotel was convenient, and rides cost about half of what you would pay elsewhere, so you can skip the bus or subway. The only drawback is the incessant noise from the Placa Reial until the early morning hours. However, the windows block out nearly all of the noise. Unlike some other hotels in the area, there are no musty odors or perfume smells, either in the hallways or room. There are only a small number of rooms, so the hotel never feels crowded, though guests coming back from celebrating late at night can be unruly. Otherwise, the stay was very relaxing and enjoyable.
