Meet miriam, Head of reception at the Hotel Negresco Princess

She has lived in several countries, but finally Miriam has come back to the great city of Barcelona, we show you a little bit of her interesting life at this hotel at the centre of Barcelona.

 Where are you from, Miriam?
I am from Barcelona but I have also lived in Montreal and Dublin for four years.

They are very different cities to Barcelona, in Montreal there were temperatures of -20 degrees, so there were incredible underground cities. That weather was really cold and there is nothing better than the Mediterranean climate of Barcelona.

What do you do at the hotel?
I am the head of reception, a function that I manage together with Laya and our great team at Hotel Negresco Princes.
