Best hotel in Barcelona
Posted May 15, 2016
We've been to Barcelona over ten times so we know what we're talking about when we say that this is the best hotel there. From location to facilities to staff competence, there is nothing that comes close. The toiletries are the best of any top hotel chain. The rooms are trendy and comfortable, with special mention for the great beds. Any complaints are nitpicky but nevertheless worth mentioning, most of them involving the bathroom. In the two suites we stayed in over two visits, there was not enough counter space near the sink for anything more than the most basic of toiletries. It gets annoying to have to take a few steps to get something out of one's toiletry bag over and over again. There was no hook close to the shower to hang a towel and, again, one had to walk a few steps while wet to get one. The shower enclosures had no shelf so soap and shampoo had to be placed on a small table inside the shower stall. There was nowhere unobtrusive in the room one could put one's empty luggage. All of these are minor complaints but other hotels have managed to provide these conveniences.
