The location near Placa Catalunya in the heart of the Gracis/Eixample district was great. Casa Batllo was only a couple of blocks away, Casa Mila just a couple of blocks more, and many other sights were within easy walking distance. Metro stops were also close, making it easy to reach sights that were farther away, The decor was pleasant throughout the hotel and our room was spacious by European standards and was well appointed. The bathroom had an excellent tub/shower with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. There was a wide variety of choices (meats, cheeses, salads, fruit, vegetables, breads, cookies, cakes, ice cream, juices, coffee, tea, milk, wine, beer, and more) available on the 24-hour buffet throughout the day and night, with additional hot egg and other breakfast dishes after 8 am. We ate breakfast from the buffet and returned at lunch and sometimes for dinner or an evening snack, The dining room was beautifully decorated and furnished and provided a chance to chat with other guests. Staff members were friendly and helpful in providing assistance and recommendations.
