The hotel is in the middle of a medical district about 15 mins tube ride and 5 mins walk from the centre of town.
The room (a suite) was very spacious, modern & clean.
TV channels limited for English speaking, Tea making facilities OK but the offer of free soft drinks (cokes fanta water and even a beer) was unusual but welcome.
The reception staff were excellent and very helpful. (esp Daphne)
I mentioned the hotel was a bit out of town but this is a positive when you consider how quiet it was.
Breakfast was adequate but again a bit limited choice of 3 or 4 fruits, yoghurt, rolls and cereal being a bit repetitive for a 4 day stay.
The hotel had an honesty bar which we didn't avail ourselves of (honest) mainly because we were out a lot. However it was still a relaxing place to sit and read.
The last day was spoiled for me as I had my wallet stolen at the Cathedral square, but again Daphne was a great help when we returned to the hotel.
I think I would return again as I guess we prefer comfort and quiet above all else and Barcelona was splendid for 3 of the 4 days we were there.
