As mentioned by other reviewers, this hotel is very well located just a block from La Rambla, the metro station and generally where it is all happening in Barcelona. There is a lovely lady named Jessica at the reception desk and she is a real asset to the hotel. She was very helpful, warm. friendly and very patient with us, sorting out our family's bookings which got a bit complicated with some date changes.
We had 2 rooms and both had a little balcony and looked out over the street below but the rooms were nice and quiet obviously with good sound proofing to block out the general sounds of the city. The rooms were a reasonable size for Europe and were very nicely decorated, modern and very clean. There is free wifi in the rooms which mostly worked well, although we found it a little spasmodic late at night when there was probably high usage once guests were back in their rooms after a day out.
I read that some reviewers liked the breakfast however for us this was the only negative of this hotel. So I'm a little reluctant to say that we (all four of us) found the buns, muffins, bread and croissants hard, dry and unenjoyable and in fact, even though the breakfast was included in our room rate, we found, just up the road one block towards La Rambla, a lovely little healthy natural toasted sandwich and salad bar called Central Cafe where we ate each morning after the first morning of sampling the hotel's breakfast. Plus the Central cafe makes great espresso coffee which was lovely to have with breakfast rather than the brewed type (if you are espresso coffee lovers as we are).
All in all however the hotel was very good and reasonable value for money and we would definitely consider staying there again if we revisit Barcelona in the future.
