Spent here a couple of days. It's a fairly large hotel, well connected with the rest of the city via the nearby underground (accessible from the street also with an elevator, if one spend a bit of time to look for it), with a techno-stylish look.
If you are lucky and you get a room at the high floors you get, as an added bonus, a nice view of the city at night. The room I got was not particularly large, but the bed were firms and comfortable and the bathroom was huge. Air conditioning helped a lot in the Spanish august.
The desk personnel was very professional and most of them spoke fluently at least 3 languages, however they were not particularly helpful when a mix-up was discovered between the booking with the italian agency (which included breakfast) and the one they had received (which didn't). I never found out who was at fault, but the end result was that I didn't try the breakfast (at another hotel, when the same thing happened, the hotel offered complimentary breakfast and supposedly dealt with the agency directly, rather than telling me to deal with them).
The bar/lounge looked quite good.
