Knowing that check-in was 2pm, I approached the front desk after a quite early cruise ship debark, with entirely too much luggage. I asked if they might accommodate me and the delightful desk clerk found me a clean room at 9:30am - no extra charge, even offered me free breakfast at the buffet along with last night's guests. Amazing!
After that, I couldn't fault the room, although the property is a bit tired and my single room opened onto the airshaft. Two days later when my flight home was cancelled I asked about staying an extra night - again, no problem and with a cheaper rate than I had paid for my weekend package. One last request - is there a room with a view at the same (or slight higher) price? Graciously, the clerk offered me a twin overlooking Plaza Catalunya, right across Las Ramblas. Absolutely perfect!
She took pains to point out, however, that all singles are in the rear/center/air shaft area and only twins or larger have that amazing view. Still, I left happy and note that whatever the property desires in style, it makes up for in gracious service.
