Quick recap - It's a one minute walk to the main train station so fantastic if you arrive really late or need to leave early by train. Rooms are small and sparse but very clean and comfortable with fantastic huge walk in showers so fine for a short business trip but not at all a place to stay for a week long vacation. Air-conditioning does not really cool the rooms properly :(.
Location, if you need to be near the station
Friendly, English speaking staff
Air conditioning does not really cool the room properly (to typical American standards) - although this seems to be almost an entirely system wide problem with all AC Hotels
I've stayed here twice, both times for one night. First time was because I arrived very late at night and was checking into the Arts the next day and did not want to spend 500Euros for a night at the Arts, arriving at 10PM (ridiculously cheap, I know :). The second time was for an early morning train to Malaga.
The first time I had a room on the first floor and the air-conditioning system cooled that room well. My second stay they tried two different rooms on the fourth floor and neither room was able to get even remotely cool. They GM was excellent, who took my concerns very seriously and eventually upgraded me to a junior suite. It took until 2AM for the room to really cool down, but the gesture was appreciated.
I would never even consider this holiday as a vacation hotel and during the summer months would never consider it for more than one night because of the AC problems. But during winter months it would be fine for a several days business trip with easy access to all of Barcelona and all of Spain via the station which is just a one minute walk away.
