HOTEL REVIEW: NH Constanza, Barcelona1:46 PM
Checking-in at the NH Constanza in Barcelona was a gift to myself. It was my last day in the city where I lost my heart and so I thought it was fitting to end it sleeping on good sheets. I know that there are more posh hotels in the city but this modern sleek boutique hotel in the business district was just right.
LOCATION: Located in the L'Eixample, the hotel is a bit of walk from Barri Gotic. But if you're fond of walking or in town for business, then the distance is not going to be an issue. (1.75pts.)
SECURITY: They use security cards here. They better do. (2pts.)
CLEANLINESS: I came up to my room just as the cleaning lady was pushing her cart out of the room. And I am happy to report that she did a good job because the room was spotless. (2pts.)
STAFF: The staff, especially the receptionist, was notably so helpful and accommodating. The usual check-in time is 15:00 yet they let me in at 09:00. how (2pts.)
CHARACTER: NH Constanza is sleek, modern, and quietly elegant - something, I think, which is such a novelty in the city of Gaudi. And it seems that I am not the only one to appreciate such a thing since a couple of months after I stayed at the hotel, I saw it in a design book featuring noted Spanish designs. (2pts)
Total: 9.75 pts.
|NH Constanza can be characterized as one huge box.|
|The interiors echoes the clean lines of the building.|
|This staircase dominates the intimate lobby and thus appears to be larger than life.|
|The mostly glass facade gives the lobby an bright airy atmosphere.|
|Designed a big black block, one can hardly miss the front desk.|
|The hallways are done in a sleek monochromatic look.|
|Here's a look of the room where I stayed at. The muted tones, sleek lines, and mix of textures make for an understated sexiness.|
