I went with three friends to the Hotel Jazz for 5 nights in late July 08, to celebrate a birthday. We booked it based on the price, location, and excellent reviews on this site, and were not disappointed. It is a lovely boutique hotel i.e. it's reasonably small, well-finished and with the facilities you need for a city break.
The hotel is immaculate. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, and the bathrooms lovely, with decent showers, lots of towels, and a hairdryer. I saw another review on here that said the lack of mirrors in the main bedroom was annoying. I know what they mean, but there is one in the hallway and another big one in the bathroom. Fine for two girls getting ready for a night out, so I think that's quite telling.
The air-con is great, because you can control it from your room to get the right level, and it does get very hot in Barcelona in July!
We used the roof-top pool, which is a wonderful treat. It's not a massive pool, but it's all you need to cool off. There are free sunbeds, and decking, as well as a roof-top bar, so you can order sangria or a beer and drink it by the pool, looking over the city.
There is also another bar downstairs, which has a good selection of spirits and friendly barmen.
We didn't take breakfast in the hotel, but there are lots of shops and cafes within walking distance.
In general, the hotel is everything you need for a city break, and it's very cool and relaxing after the buzz of Barcelona. It's close to everything you need - Las Ramblas, the metro, and the Gothic quarter. There are lots of lovely little cocktail bars and restaurants tucked away in the streets around, so I would say get out the first evening you get there and see what you come across.
I would whole-heartedly recommend this hotel to any one looking for a city break in Barcelona.
