I booked this hotel through the hotel website as a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and he certainly wasn't disappointed, it was lush! Our room was spacious with a great balcony that even had black out blinds. Rooms were quiet and the bathroom had a bath and shower which was great for relaxing in after a day sightseeing.
Would highly recommend going on a bed and breakfast basis as the breakfasts were delicious and set you up for the day. There is a selection of cooked things such as bacon eggs and sausages to cereal, fresh fruit and toffee muffins and pastries. For dinner in the area we would recommend the burger bar just down from the hotel for a cheap yet tasty meal and Gusto the Italian a bit further down for somewhere a bit fancier. Remember many places don't open until after 8pm.
From the airport you can get the aerobus into Barcelona and if you get off at the Urgell stop its a straight walk 9 blocks to the hotel. The hotel is a bit further out of Barcelona itself but a metro station is 2mins away and a 2day metro pass is fairly reasonable and makes getting around really easy. Would also recommend the hop on hop off bus as you get to see lots of touristy things this way which is a must.
We booked to see a Spanish dancing show through the hotel which was a nice way to spend an evening.
We visited in April and despite the weather being torrential rain we had an amazing time and the hotel definitely contributed towards making it a great stay.
Will definitely return soon!
