My wife and I stayed here in November 2012 for 2 nights. The hotel is about a quarter of a mile east of the Ramblas, on the edge of the Gothic area. We found it great just to walk out of the hotel and be in the midst of the small back streets packed with bars, restaurants and shops. All of the sights and the beach are within reasonable walking distance, and over 3 days we didn´t once need to catch a tube or bus.
The hotel is clean, tidy, well decorated and furnished in a minimalist modern sort of way. The main road going past the hotel was quite busy and we had a side facing room. The sound proofing was very good and we could hardly hear the traffic at all.
There is a roof bar (which wasn,t fully open in November) and an infinity pool that you can probably see on publicity shots of the hotel. It wasn´t heated when we visited, but looked inviting.
Breakfast at the hotel was 12 Euros per day, but we went next door one way to the bakery and then next door the other to Starbucks, and sat in the loungers of the roof bar in the sun and had breakfast.
Only down side was that the rooms were very warm and the windows don´t open. The front desk told us that the air con is not on in the winter, and that we could only get warm air. They did open the window for us to cool the room, at which point we realised just how well the sound insulation was working, and asked them to close it again!
I would return here in future and would recommend it for a short or medium stay.
