    The staff was great. Booked us a taxi in the morning. Helped with direction and things like that. The room was small, but the bathroom was surprisingly nice.

    Just the size of the room. For 3 people was expecting a bit bigger room. On a separate note (not related to the hotel), if you are looking into going to Barcelona save yourself the trouble. It is not safe there. We were robbed of a chain right from my dad's neck walking around. The city is overfilled with thiefs. Do yourself a favor and just google the words "Barcelona" and "thiefs". Not worth going on vacation and having to watch your back because you may get mugged or robbed at any moment. Go else where, plenty of cool places in Europe.
