    What a wonderful place tucked in the middle of what's worth seeing, eating and enjoying. Staff was helpful and the rooftop pool was joy. We were afraid the rooms might be noisy but we slept like babies.

    Why not 5 stars? Because a cocktail at poolside (restricted to residents who have already paid to be there) costs twice as much as the bar 2 floors below. That's a clumsy rip-off. A shame when everything else is so good.More

    El Born / La Ribera
    The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
    the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
    this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
    enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
    places that live and breathe such exciting energy
    regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
    seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
    city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
