So, I think the hotel was near faultless but I will start with a few bad things that stopped it getting full marks.....
As you can see from my attached photo, the mirror was cracked in our room, which is actually the door to the bathroom. I think this was a basic design fault as the door was a sliding door and slammed easily. Also, we had an internal room, which just had a view of other rooms and the courtyard.
However, I thought the hotel was fantastic. I really don't understand how people can complain about the location, the hotel is at Plaza Espanya which is a good 20-25 min walk to the Rambla but a 6 minute metro journey. But it is very close to Montjuic as well.
The hotel itself was immaculately clean and on our first day we noticed an out of place and broke tile which was fixed by the next day (without even reporting it). I read in previous reviews that the the bathroom window overlooking the room was inconvenient, well, there is a very effective electronic blind and besides that, it is pretty entertaining!
The roof terrace and pool was the absolute icing on the cake and whilst it is overlooked by the shopping centre now occupying the bullring, it still offers amazing views and I imagine would be great for mid afternoon dips in the hot Barca summers.
My friend and I love Barca and B-Hotel was really key in making this one of our best visits. With an honorable mention to Antonio on reception.
I would definitely stay here again and 100% recommend it!
