Just back from 3 days in this hotel, it is very hand to get to from the Airport. Get the Train to Sants Station and the L3 Metro to Paral Lel metro station and you are right outside the hotel,cheaper and less hassle than buses and considerably cheaper than a taxi
The room itself was extremely clean however the walls are pretty thin, we could hear the people next door showering and also the staff making up the rooms.
We were on the roadside of the hotel and you could hear the traffic so if you are a light sleeper be warned.
The wifi was free in the hotel and quick, nearly reason enough to stay there if the internet is as vital to your work as it is to mine.
The location means Las Ramblas is an quick walk, turn left out of the hotel rather than right if you want to avoid the "professional" ladies.
All in All a good hotel and one I would stay at again if I were back in Barcelona
