Our trip to Barcelona just ended and it had the worst ending with this hotel.|We had booked the Family room because we were 4 adults at the beginning and we end up being 3.|Arriving at the front desk, the woman working there, Luna, told us that I had booked a family room with only 1 adult and 3 kids and that I had to pay an extra room since it can’t take up to 3 adults. I told her twice that at the site that we booked it they don’t mention that it takes up to 2 adults and 2 kids and I didn’t make any mistake with the booking. She continued assuming that we made the mistake and we have to pay for an extra room.As I’m also working as a Front desk agent, you never tell to a guest that it’s their fault without searching first.|She called maybe her supervisor or the hotel manager, I’m not sure yet and she indeed confirmed that it was their mistake and they don’t mention anything about kids.|To continue, she told us that they will do an extra bed so we can be comfortable and we thanked her, without knowing what we will face next.|As we got the keys, we took the lift and we ended up to the 3rd floor. And what we faced? A DOUBLE ROOM FOR 3 PEOPLE. We never got any extra bed, and we got 2 singles bed not even 1 double bed.|We said don’t make it a big deal and just go with it. The pillows are really uncomfortable and you can’t sleep, we only had 2 towels, and during the night we never managed to sleep due to the heat, we were sweating like there is no tomorrow because the A/C barely works. they never informed us that the bar and the reception isn’t 24h. Open, or if it was, we didn’t find anyone at night where we went to the lobby to find someone to complain about not be able to sleep. The morning came, the breakfast was decent for 18€, and at the check out, when we complained about all these they just said “I’m sorry for that, you have a remaining balance of the accommodation tax”. That was it. The did NOTHING for the horrible accommodation, and I truly believe that it doesn’t work as a 4* hotel.|I’m really disappointed for paying almost 200€ for just a night that it turned into nightmare.|Please choose wisely where you are going to stay in Barcelona and don’t make the same mistake. Hope in the future you will be able to take more serious the complaints from the guest and eventually you will do something to improve your services to match a luxury hotel.

Lovely rooms by the roof top pool. |On site restaurant which serves Menu de Dias. Both extremely good value and delicious. Front desk weren't efficient with important wake up call! Breakfast is buffet with a wide range of everything.
