My husband and I were on our honeymoon and had booked a cruise that departed from Barcelona, so we booked a 2 night stay here before the cruise.
As we were jetlagged, we did a lot of sleeping in our room. The room was a good size, bathroom was very big and everything looked clean and modern. No free wifi though. Breakfast was awesome. There was so much to choose from and the coffee was delicious. We were very impressed with the breakfast.
Location wasn't the greatest and it was far from the airport. It looked like a business-y area and seemed a bit dodgey at night, but we never felt it was unsafe. It's a couple blocks from a strip of restaurants/shops. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and McDonalds, which we went to use their wifi.
Staff was very friendly and happy to help with showing us directions. They also told us which trains to take to get to the harbour.
Hotel itself was very nice, so if you are looking for a good hotel in this neighbourhood, I'd highly recommend it. However, if you're looking for lots to do within walking distance, then this might not be the best choice.
