We stayed in a 'Comfort' room, which I think is their second style. Was very spacious with a good sized double bed (I think it might have been King sized, it was really quite big) plus an arm chair and a chair at the dressing table. The windows are great. There's a really busy road outside but when the windows were closed it was silent. The electric blinds were a nice touch as they let as much or as little light in as you wanted. We also had a free safe and mini bar in the fridge. Although we only used the fridge for our water :)
As others have said, the bathroom situation is a bit odd. It was fine for us and I wasn't put off by it but if you want some privacy in the bath or shower, and don't trust your travelling companion to leave you alone, then this isn't the hotel for you!
The rooftop pool is great and a real treat in Barcelona as there aren't many hotels with pools. The drinks at the bar are a bit pricey but that's to be expected. I think it was about 9 euros for a Bacardi and Fanta lemon, but it came in a pint cup with about 5 measures of Bacardi in it, so it lasted a while! ;)
This is a 4-star hotel and I would agree with that, the only thing is there are some details needing finished and touched up like maybe little chips of paint or marks on the wall, but nothing major. Hopefully they'll get them seen to before it goes downhill.
