We arrived by taxi on a Saturday night at this lovely boutique hotel in downtown Barcelona. We were immediately checked in by two young gentlemen. One insisted on taking us to the room and showing us our amenities. Free mini bar soft drinks,free breakfast, free welcoming beverages, free wi-if. Someone delivered four fresh figs to our room and later 3 tiny pastries for bedtime.
The room is nicely decorated, modern and elegant. Wood floors, large 2 person basin, delicious toiletries, bathrobes and the best of all was a magnificent rain shower. The shower has shampoo, conditioner and two kinds of high end body washes from London. Smells great!
We had a Cava and beer sitting on the square watching everyone enjoy the night.
In the morning we had a delicious breakfast with a pastry basket, fresh pressed orange juice and cappuccinos. My husband had a Spanish omelette and I had a crepe with ham and cheese. Everything including all services were first class.
The only draw back was the noise level from the street on a Saturday night. There was never ending chatter from the people in the square.
Might have been because it was a Saturday night.
