This is a really good hotel approx 10 minutes walk to Las Rablas and harbour. There's also a metro station outside which is great as really easy getting around via tube. You can also catch the funicular to Montjuic from the station. Our room was on the 2nd floor, it didn't have a view but it was comfortable and was kept very clean. Breakfast was included in our rate and there was a good variety of items. It can get busy at breakfast so there may be a short wait. All the hotel staff we met were friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a fantastic roof terrace with a small pool. The views from the terrace are fantastic and it was really nice to sit on the terrace at the end of the day just looking at the fab views of Barcelona.
There are a number of bars, cafes and restaurants by the hotel and all were considerably cheaper than the ones in the more tourist areas. Really nice bar round the corner which did cava for 2 euros! Thhotel is on a fairly busy street so there is some noise but it didn't bother us at all.
I would definitely stay here again
