we stayed here for a week and i must admit before we went the reviews didn't seem very good so i was a little worried however i shouldn't have worried some people are so picky and seem to just like to moan! the hotels location is not central but is so easy and handy. to find this hotel from Sants station walk out of the exits opposite the information and ticket desks you will come out where the bike parking is, standing outside here if you look straight to your right you will see the corner of the hotel.. we had done a map but it was completely wrong it so easy to find and so close. when we arrived we were given a twin room but i requested a double (the deal we had bought was for either a double or twin and i hadnt specified before hand) however they offered us the usual upgrade for €8 per night, we managed to get this down to paying for just 3 nights but staying in the upgrade room for the whole stay. we did look at our twin room first though as apparently we had a view which we did of the magic fountain and the room was fine but basic. our upgrade room was really nice and even had a balcony in the bathroom! :) i must admit at night the noise from outside could be heard and was a little more on the weekend but i think if you stayed in one of the twin rooms it may be a little different as they seem to be in the middle on the sides as the doubles are on the corners. breakfast was brill a wide variety and some mornings there was new things, the breakfast times were really good i didn't feel i was having to get up too early like other hotels and the weekends the breakfast is on till later. the roof top bar was really nice and relaxing but a little expensive, €9 just for a burger and extra €5 for some fries. the pool yes is smaller than i thought the pictures advertised but its still a lovely little extra and was a good little suntrap to sunbathe and listen to the world go by on the street. the staff were all very helpful and when our flights got cancelled did everything they could to help us with a room if we needed it seeing as they had tons of people arrive at the same time. we ate a couple of times at the Italian restaurant opposite they don't seem very interested in you but the price was good and the food was great.we struggled to find other places in the area we wanted to eat but we could have explored more. the supermarket underneath the hotel unfortunately was closing down while we were there but we found another useful little shop just round the corner where we could buy snacks and big bottles of drink to take out with us for the day to buy these as we went out and about Barcelona we were paying double on one occasion triple for the same thing!! cross over the road and walk right, at the end of the road turn left its a few doors down. do buy a T10 ticket if there is two of you you can use it together you get 10 trips per card so if there is 2 of you you get 5 each. the tourist info desk is in the station, on the oposite side of the station walk through the middle of the ticket desks and the information desks and it there on the left they can help you with the other transport cards depending on your stay and how much you think you will catch a metro they do ones unlimited by amount of days. hope i have helped at least 1 person ;0
