I read the reviews but was already booked here for two nights on business. I was concerned with the lack of A/C and excessive road noise. There is no A/C but it was fine to open a window and the road noise is bearable. Surrounding area is a bit grotty.
My room was a suite, which is basically a family room configured for a couple. Clean and spaceous but clearly a family room first with two distinct "bedrooms". Breakfast and the bar snack I had was good. Staff were excellent and spoke good English.
It is far from the city but a Metro ride took less than 15 minutes on a clean train (2.30 Euro) to get me to the Maritime Museum at the bottom of Ramblas. I returned at 1:30am on a busy, clean and safe train. The way to travel and unlike anything you'd experience on London Underground.
A/C and a gym/pool would get it four stars but it's a good value hotel. Not the best but definitely not as bad as some reviewers claim.
