Beautiful property in the heart of downtown Barcelona. Close to everything- shopping, dining, the metro. Walkable to local sites. The hotel itself is beautiful with large rooms and nice amenities. The bed was really comfortable and was a relaxing stay. Shout out to the front desk staff who were absolutely amazing! Thank you! I will be back!
