The hotel was of a very good standard. Breakfast was superb, huge variety, very tasty and good quality. The room was of a reasonable size, very nice shower. Only issue with room is the sporadic wifi, it dips in and out a lot and sometimes the log in screen merely freezes, however it's free, so what do we really expect? The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. The cleaning staff did a great job with our room every day. Our kids enjoyed the hotel facilities, used X box's every day, and gym (enough items in gym to have a reasonable workout) also liked the Apple Macs available to use near bar area. The hotel itself is in a good location, near to Glories metro stop, near to Glories shopping centre (complete with a Carrefour supermarket) also only a few tram stops from a shopping centre, Diagonal Mar. Thoroughly enjoyed the visual spectaculars that make up Barcelonas beautiful architecture, just be prepared for busy days and plenty of walking to enjoy all it has to offer (we spent a total of 8 days in Barca and still didn't get to do everything we wanted to). When it comes to places to visit I could go on and on, but all I can say is do your homework (Trip Advisor is brilliant), plan, but most of all, enjoy. We went in Feb and found it a good time, weather was fine for sight seeing, don't expect to sunbathe, but there are less tourists to slow you down on your sightseeing.
