Thanks for the tip on this hotel. Can anyone tell me the nightly rate at this hotel?The special promotion through Orbitz is 100 Euro + tax for a room with a queen size bed. I don't know how much longer this will be available though.

We were in non smoking rooms on the second floor and they were as quiet as can be.
The main restaurant was closed for the month of August but the breakfast buffet and snacks were available in the lobby restaurant all day and late into the evening. They recommended a restaurant that we walked to "Sumum." Beautiful little restaurant with an amazing stainless steel state of the art kitchen...Miget of duck (13 euros) was as good as any we've had in France!! A glass of Cava is complimentary before your meal and the wine list is reasonable and extensive! Choices in food styles are many so everyone will be happy...our 12 year old had tempura veggies and shrimp one night and "ink" pasta carbonara the second night. We ate there three out of 4 nights!!!!!!!
We would have stayed at the Apsis Atrium post cruise too, but I had thought it might be more convenient to stay at the Grand Marina. We decided to stick with the plan even though we felt that the Apsis was wonderful...changes are always a pain! The Grand Marina was like a fantasy vacation! We did pay A LOT more but since it was only for one night and it was the grand finale to our vacation, we went for it. It was unbelievable! We have stayed at the "Hotel Arts" and this hotel easily compared with it at half the price!
Hope this helps!
Here are a few quotes from people who have stayed there:
"Hotel Jazz is brand new and in the heart of Barcelona" "It is all spanking new and has an upmarket feel with little touches such as Plasma screen TV" "The roof is the best part, there is an awesome pool to enjoy as well as the scenery" "The bed was the biggest I have ever slept in (8 foot?!), Everything is very modern and clean, including the bathroom" "The rooms are fantastic - everything you needed, safe, mini bar, hairdryer, toilitries (including razors and toothbrushes!)" "just a couple of blocks from plaza catalunya and las ramblas - close to metros and buses" "The location is great and the "tourist bus" for sight seeing stops outside the hotel!"
"Was superb, on a noisy street, but the soundproof windows did the trick, Our standard-size room was quite large by European standards and we appreciated the towel warmer and other amenities" "Ladies if you want to shop, you couldn´t ask for anything better with tons of stores just outside your doorstep"
The only negatives that were repeated a few times over (which some people did have the opposite experience) were about the staff being rude or uncaring, which although not appreciated, can unfortunately be expected in many European cities. Like anywhere else (not excluding the U.S.) there are good and bad attitudes to be found, which are dependent on an array of human factors and conditions.
