The design its plain ugly -a fat and lower bad copy of Burj Al Arab- and its placed on the wrong location... it will disgrace the Old City's maritime views.. this is not Dubai, for f*ck's sake!

wrong strategy, wrong architect, worst tall building of the city, worst and most irrationally infantile design (oh!, its in the sea, well let's design a sailboat then, like that city in the desert...)

As usual, like everything coming from Bofill since the mid-eighties, this Hotel is pure crap. Thanks heaven it isn't a 350 ft corinthian column raised on a stone pedestal standing in front of a gothic city.... still, a complete nightmare.
Bad corporative bullsh*t, I'd rather hire some international starchitect to do the job or bring fresh air, there are hundreds of local architects way much better than this guy ...
