Modern, purpose built hotel 3 minutes from Sagrada Familia, 3 minutes from the metro and about 45 minutes walk to La Ramblas. The Bulding has a number of attractive features; large bedrooms (well that was the case with our rooms with view of Gaudi's cathedral), large bathrooms with plenty of shelving space to put toiletries, pleasant cafe/bar that served delicious prawns and tasty potatoes bravas, with a neat sitting/lying area adjacent for studying the cathedral and a largish terrace area on the top floor for viewing the cathedral with sun beds.
Breakfast, part self service, part waiting service, included a very good individual fruit salad with a large variety of fruits, the usual continental breakfast items and a choice of eggs, bacon sausage etc.
The service at reception, from the waiting staff and from housekeeping was efficient, friendly and helpful. However, there were some issues. The main problem for me was the heat; it was too hot. I checked with reception about reducing the temperature but was told all rooms were set to 21 degrees but I could switch off the heating. I did this but it was still too hot even with the slither of ventilation made possible by opening the one openable window. It's a pity that the other door/window is permanently locked, not just because of the ventilation but also it makes it impossible to take decent picture of the Sagrada Familia through the messy windows (that isn't a complaint about the windows, it would be very difficult to keep them shiny!).
Despite some niggles I liked this hotel and would recommend it
