I adore hotels. I really love them. But what I don’t love is checking out at 11am when my flight isn’t until 9:30pm and having to leave my luggage and traipse around for hours on end just wasting time. I’ve spent many years working in hotels and I know why it’s necessary for there to be an earlyish check out time but it’s just so hugely inconvenient.

During a recent long weekend in Barcelona I was in this exact predicament. Checked out at 11am, flight not until 9:30pm. It was hot, I was sweating, and I was starting a new job the next day so I was a nervous faff, and to top it off my hair needed to be washed and straightened.

So I booked to stay at the four star Ofelias Hotel for a few hours through, a company that allows guests to book rooms in 3, 6, 12, 24, 36 or 48 hour time slots and choose their own check in time. Ideal.
