Stayed here for a second year during Mobile World Congress. The location is reasonable. On the plus side, its on the same block as the Encants metro station, close to the Sagrada Familia and in a reasonably tidy neighbourhood. On the minus, it's a metro ride to see pretty much anything, and while there are convenience stores very close by, shopping and dining options in the area are scant.
The apartments themselves are clean and tidy, with a decent kitchen and bathroom. Shower was over-the-bath type. Television was tiny and showed only free-to-air Spanish and Catalan language TV.
Bed arrangement was a queen size in one room, and two single beds in a cramped second room (off the lounge). Anyone over 6'/182cm would find the single bed too short.
A minor irritation was the wireless internet access which was out of action for an entire afternoon, and which was a bit of a show-stopper for a business trip.
There is more than one person who staffs the desk for checkins/checkouts, and one of them was friendly and helpful, the other quite the opposite.
I can't comment too much on value, every single hotel in Barcelona exploits the MWC conference for massive price gouging, and this hotel also appeared to be much more expensive than usual during the conference. I'd hate to be a tourist looking for accomodation in Barcelona during MWC; in fact, I'd avoid the city during the conference.
