I would 100% stay here again!
Perfect location! Located on Via Leitana in the El Born neighborhood of Barcelona, we couldn’t have asked for a more ideal stay. The hotel itself is clean, quiet and very comfortable. The rooms are small, but efficient. The staff is so helpful and greet you with a smile:) I had an issue with a ticket I booked and the young lady at the desk solved it for me. There are small amenities that really make a difference ~ the mini bar is complimentary and restocked every day so we are always hydrated. And in the lobby, at times, there are afternoon snacks, which are nice after a busy day. I would absolutely stay here again.

Spectacular in every way!
This was an amazing stay. My first time with The Small Luxury Hotels group and they were amazing. Easily on par with the Four Seasons or the Ritz in Service, but with a smaller personal experience that didn’t feel pretentious in any way. Bravo! My new go to hotelier!

Good 6.0
Nice Facility but Noisy and Inflexible
Although this hotel is highly rated, for me it was average because of the location of my room and a request to extend my check-out an hour or two longer that was refused. My room was quite nice and the welcome by the staff upon arrival was super-friendly and helpful. The facilities are lovely. However, if you are at all sensitive to noise while sleeping, DO NOT request a city view room. These overlook one of the busiest streets in the city and the hotel happens to be located near a stop light resulting in not only street noise but hearing cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses starting and stopping constantly. About the request for a later check-out (by an hour or two): My plane was delayed by 13 hours, so I could have used the extra time in my room to get myself better organized in private for the ordeal ahead. I was told by reception that the hotel was fully booked that night so they could not honor my request. While I understand that I could not keep the room all afternoon, I did not understand why there was not some flexibility to keep the room an extra hour or two extra, especially since it is not possible for the hotel to arrange to clean all rooms all at once at the noon check out time. Unfortunately, between not sleeping due to noise and the lack of flexibility at check-out, especially from a 5 star hotel that supposedly prides itself on service, I am left with a negative feeling so it is unlikely that I would stay there again. Hence my rating of average overall.

Great hotel in good location
Located in the heart of old town Barcelona, but away from the loud traffic noise, this location couldn’t be better. We started the beginning of our vacation in Spain and traveling by car we needed some help navigating around Barcelona and Spain in general. The hotel staff, especially Jaime the front desk manager, couldn’t have been more helpful. All of his insightful tips, made our next 2 weeks traveling through Spain much more enjoyable. Tomorrow we are flying back to the states from Barcelona, and due to our great experience, we booked the same hotel for our last night in Spain, knowing that it will be special. From the moment we walked into the hotel and was handed a cocktail, to the amazing breakfast, it was a wonderful experience. Loved that the items in the minibar were complimentary, and their discounted rate for the two days parking was a nice savings. It was a first class experience, and we can’t wait to finish off our trip there. Thank you, Jaime.
