We were welcomed by a wonderful front desk employee when we first checked in. He suggested a good restaurant for our first night. Breakfast at the hotel was a very nice buffet. Our room was quiet and great for sleeping in with our jetlag.
Was worried when read review of the area as seedy, but not what we found when out in day and earlyish evenings. Fab quite quiet location, a minute from las ramblas, 20 mins from beach, 5 mins from old quarter and lovely palm-lined square, 5 mins from amazing market. Apartment was great for our family of 4, felt safe, we were lucky to get a balcony and had a\c in some rooms. Also mini bath and shower. Kitchen v clean. Small prob with a light was fixed within 10 mins!! Made great base as so central.
We were greeted by the amazing staff at the hotel. I’m very bad with people’s names by a young man helped us get checked in and helped us carry our bags to our Apt. We were on the 4th floor. That was our last city we visited on a three week vacation in Europe. I didn’t know what to expect but when we walked in the door of the apt. it was fantastic. We could smell the cleanliness of the place. Sheets and towels were freshly washed and smelled amazing. We had everything we needed in the kitchen.
This young man gave us soooo many pointers of local food, things to do, things to go and how to get around using the metro. The experience were was great.
We got a nice apartment that fit our needs perfectly. We two adults and three kids and it was plenty of space. The only problem was that they had not received our booking from expedia which took some time to fix.
