Rated 5 out of 5 by scopa Excellent Location; Highly Recommend
As a platinum, we got a free buffet breakfast each morning, sitting at a table right on the Rambla, great way to start the day. We actually had drinks at the hotel bar a few times, because of the key location on the Rambla and the relaxed feeling of the bar and library area. Air conditioning was great and I loved the whole kind of artsy-but not snobby vibe of the place.
The dutch hotel trainees were a plus as the language was not at all a barrier.
We used our points to buy massages, and that is highly recommended, especially after walking around all day.
My only very, slight criticism of this hotel is that our Platinum status was not really acknowledged - our room was a"deluxe" room, where we had airplane pilots staying next door, but no suite upgrade. The floor manager was very quick to see if he could locate us a better room, apologizing that we were travelling in the high season (which we could see from the number of tourists at check-in / check-out times). He handled the situation so graciously that it was really a non-issue for us (the location of the hotel means that you are only in your chilled, cool hotel room when you can't bear to perambulate anymore). Also, housekeeping kept us chocked full of free waters (very nice touch) and toiletries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by IRELANDSMAN WHERE WAS THE GENERAL MANAGER
-I have had the pleasure of staying here many times and this weekend was upgraded to one of the newly refurbished suites overlooking the Ramblas.
Following my stay i had a meeting with management to exchange views.
Attention to detail leaves much to be desired !
How could the GM sign off on my suite bearing in mind there are so many issues or was the GM not involved.
The suite colours were morbid----totally depressing----a lack of electrical power points in the correct areas----for the person sleeping on the right side of the bed -no switch to put on a light-so the guest has to crawl over their partner or get out of bed and walk about the bed .
In the area of Internet desk no plugin available unless you disconnect the radio.
Water in the shower is being wasted based on the enormous pressure--money money !!
Very expensive electrical lights have been installed in the both bedroom/living area which simply are a waste of money-they are SPOT LIGHTS-as a result you are unable to read a book-newspaper in the living area with the awful lighting system.
Why oh why do some GMs sign off -on something like this without clearly seeing the issues by day and NIGHT.
Breakfast was standard however dinner was wonderful with a most delightful young German lady being charming and efficient.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MomsandDaughters Mother/daughter trip from NJ
My friends and their daughters met myself and my daughter, who was studying in Spain, to spend a one week vacation in Barcelona. The hotel is in the best location for shopping, bars, restaurants, etc. We had heard about potential noise from being so close to all the activity, but it wasn't an issue. The rooms were clean, and the beds very comfortable. The restaurant was a bit pricy, but it was easy enough to take cabs to eat at local restaurants (which we did a lot!) You are in walking distance to many of the main tourist sites as well. Our only issue was that we had booked what we thought were connecting rooms only to find out that its NOT the same meaning as in the U.S. We had two rooms that had an additional door to separate them from the hallway, but still had separate doors between the rooms. Not a big deal in the end, but for a family traveling with young children you want check that out. The concierge were very helpful, although we had one bad experience in a restaurant (service related, not food!) and we thought he should have directed us to a different restaurant. We were able to purchase tickets to see La Sagrada Familia through the concierge which I highly recommend doing. Overall, it was the most convenient location and I would stay there again.
