We spent 3 nights in the top grade room with a view (& small balcony) of Rambla de Catalunya.
The modern but practical room had a big comfortable king bed, lots of storage, a desk area, a chair on small balcony and a plastic stool (under desk). There was a good sized cupboard in the entry hall.
The room was double glazed and so was quiet (2 sets of windows to close). The old wooden shutters weren't great at blocking out light in the early morning but did almost do the job.
The bathroom was very nice but got so steamy after a short hot shower (no bath) it was difficult to continue using the bathroom (eg vanity) without keeping the door open for a while.
The hotel doesn't provide a lot of extras (tissues, tea/coffee, extra vanity products, extra towels) but if you don't mind this it really is a good place to stay.
The tea and coffee making facilities are available on the communal level 1, which leads to a sitting area and lovely outside terrace.
Everyone at reception was very nice.
The usual type of buffet hotel breakfast is provided at the back of the cafe / restaurant immediately next door to the hotel. The breakfast was a bit uninspired (not much to choose from and pretty average quality).
We liked the location. Its very close to a lot of the Gaudi sights, foundation Tapies, shopping, bars and restaurants. The walk to plaza catalunya was not more than 10 minutes. The taxi to / from the train station (sants) was about EUR10.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
