    Barcelona is a beautiful city with friendly people but is a bit too hot in July.

    • Stayed 5 nights

    Our room did not include breakfast but it did include the minibar. Unfortunately, we weren't told about the minibar. In order to keep the room comfortably cool, the a/c had to be on full cold all the time. Warnings about pickpockets and leaving phones on tables are true.

    The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and the location very convenient to La Rambla, restaurants, and day-trip travel company.

    My "upgraded" room had no working air conditioner and no balcony, so I was wondering what a room a step lower would have been. Staff okay, asked for a call to a taxi one night and she said no, no service available at the time, I should go out to the street and hail one myself. Saw a nice little patio area on my level, had no seating but good for a nice break from a stuffy un-air-conditioned room, and a staff member saw me up there and said it was not allowed for me to be out there...well, not impressed with the amenities. Their food, for €15+ euro, go find a nice cafe on a corner, will be less expensive and better quality.

    The location is good, 10 minute walk to a nice shopping and central area.

    Our room faced the street so opening a window was not an option - it was crazy noisy. This has another aspect. It was really hot in the room, even with the AC off, even if you put in on COLD it still emits warm air, and you can't open a window since its so noisy. So we kept waking up in the middle of the night just from the heat. Disappointing.

    very nice bathroom facilities with a good shower and lots of space. Bed was very comfortable. Room was OK size.
