Arrived a bit early only to find our room was not ready yet. This is to be expected and I was happy to go kill a few hours in the city.
Reception and staff were courteous and very helpful. The rooms are acceptably spacious and clean - everything you'd expect from a Novotel room.
There is a hop-on-hop off bus stop (Torre Agbar) across from the hotel. This is an excellent way to explore the city whilst getting a guided tour. You have the option of a 24/48 hr ticket at E24 each and you can use this as transport whilst seeing the sights!
There is a shopping centre next to the hotel and a few good bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood.
All in all, a very pleasant stay.
