This is a great hotel in the heart of Barcelona. It's in a side street 100 metres from the Ramblas, giving it a great location but just a bit quieter than the hotels on the Ramblas.
It's a well designed modern hotel. Rooms are a good size and clean. Most look out on two side streets. Staff are friendly. The breakfast is excellent, with a spread of fresh fruit, breads, freshly made hot sandwiches, a coffee machine and a great selection of teas you can make yourself from caddies of tea leaves.
Wifi is free, though it is rather slow and intermittent in the rooms, though better in the lobby. If you really need fast wifi head out to the Ramblas, turn right and find a great tapas bar called American Soda. There you can enjoy super fast wifi over a coffee or a beer and tapas.
In the hotel there's also a business centre/meeting room in the lobby which is a good place to work. Entry is by a buzzer, which is just as well as late at night the street Carre Hospital does have a few ladies of the night and drug pushers - but we had no problems and felt safe. At night leaving the hotel head left to the Ramblas which is always busy with people. Don't head right as it gets a bit dodgy further down Carre Hospital.
Overall a great hotel and I will stay there again next time I visit Barcelona.
