The location of the hotel was great- right between two Gaudi sites and walking distance to Las Ramblas (although far enough away) and many other sites (and a hub for the metro and tourist bus to get to areas not as walkable). I had an interior "economy" room, which was definately economy, probably 400 sq feet, if even. While the room was clean, it was not efficient for several reasons. One, there was no space for suitcases, let alone unpacking. I think there was one shelf, but NO drawers, and even the shelf was in an odd location. Luckily, when visiting Barcelona most likely you are not spending much time in the room. Second, the lighting is terrible and to make matters worse, there is no full length mirror. Third, the set up of the shower makes it nearly impossible to not get water all over the bathroom floor. That being said, the location, complimentary breakfast (buffett is average but you can order egg dishes off the menu for free) makes it worth the money since Barcelona is not cheap. I would recommend the hotel, but if a picky traveler, would opt for a room other than the economy room. The hotel was helpful in recommending restaurants within a few blocks walking distance that are excellent, and did a good job of reminding us to not eat on Las Ramblas.
