My evaluation criteria is always in comparison with another places I've been whit the same requisites of the category. In my opinion this 4 stars doesn't match with the requisites of the category, actually only the price is 4 stars! The building is beautiful, nice decoration but the most important is missing: bedroom too small, beds amazingly too short! (if you are taller than 1,80m prepare yourself to have your feet out of the bed). Pillows? in fact they look more like cushions than pillows, too uncomfortable! No toiletries in the bathroom, the shower is too close to the wall, you cannot properly wash yourself because of lack of space. The Spa area it's a kind of "free territory", no rules at all! It happened we've found a group of guys shouting and taking over the whole swimming pool to themselves, the receptionist came to bring some towels, and didn't even give them a warning to stop making awfully loud noises, what a shame! Internet is extremely slow and takes minutes to enter Google or browsing, frustrating! Breakfast definitely not a four star rating: fruits not properly peeled (like ananas, Come on!), the black coffee is awful!
One day, when it was about to finish the breakfast time the staff started to turning off the lights despite there was still people eating, so unpolite!
*My evaluation here has just the propose to help the hotel improve their services.
The location is very good! ten minutes walking to the beach, near to Barceloneta, Olympic Port, metro station. Actually if you are a good walker everything can be reached on foot. The building is beautiful, nice decoration.The staircase is beautifully made (marble). The jacuzzi in the spa is very relaxing especially if you came back from a long ten kilometer walk. Free spa area, also for kids (accompanied by adults).
