I stayed there during a family trip to Barcelona. My sister, her husband and their 2 children stayed in a family room which they were very happy about - very big, and 2 TVs!
My partner and I stayed in a double room. We had 2 single beds pushed together, but we knew this could happen, so no problem there. The view from the window was basically 3 walls, but we didn't really mind. It was very clean, although the bath towels were a bit frayed. The wi-fi worked well.
The man working at reception when we arrived was lovely, extremely patient and very helpful. The following morning, however, I had to report that a bunch of teenagers had been extremely noisy all night and had woken all of us several times, and the new man at reception actually seemed annoyed with me for reporting it. I know it wasn't his fault (although shouldn't it be partly the hotel staff's job to make sure guests aren't unruly?), but he could at least have pretended to care. Maybe he was annoyed at the teenagers and I mistook his reaction, but he offered no polite word of apology.
I do believe that we would have had a very good night though had it not been for these teenagers, so we were probably just unlucky.
I would recommend booking a parking space in the hotel's car park. Parking in the whole area is for residents only, so you can only park for 2 hours maximum. The car park is slightly tricky to access (it's a sharp turn), but you will probably struggle to park anywhere near the hotel anyway.
There are a lot of small cafes and tapas places around the hotel; they were not big enough to accommodate our family, but would be fine for anything up to 4 people. There is also a very good pizza place a bit before the hotel, on the same side of the street. It looks a bit ropey but the pizzas are massive and delicious.
