    Very Good 8.0
    Great hotel and location
    Staff very friendly and accommodating. Gave us a room even through we arrived early. Beds are very comfortable, rooms are spacious and great facilities. Restaurant does delicious tapas and cocktails. Leisurely stroll to the port, boat rides and tons of bars & restaurants. The underground Metro is about 100metres from the hotel with easy access to the airport. A great place to be in Barcelona.

    Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Nice rooftop area
    Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Nice rooftop bar and pool area. In walking distance to almost everything. Only minor issues that had no real impact on our stay, but could be fixed. Slow Wifi. The lid on the remote control kept falling off, loose tiles on the bathroom floor.

    The hotel was very comfortable and conveniently located next to a metro station. However the food and service at the Wolf Restaurant were mediocre.
