We booked a room to sleep 4 and expected to pay much more than we did for a 4 star hotel in the heart of a big European city in the peak of summer (July). I've stayed in many Novotels and this one is definitely a step above most - the lobby is very trendy and colourful, staff are really helpful and the rooms and big with great views over the city. The highlight of the hotel has to be the rooftop pool - the kids would happily have spent their entire Barcelona holiday in the pool if they'd been able to.
We didn't eat at the hotel - didn't need to with many cafes and restaurants across the road. There's a tube station almost on the door step and the hop-on, hop-off bus (highly recommended) has a stop just across the road. So location is just brilliant. Best bit of all is the large Zara shop in the mall - Barcelona has the cheapest Zara in the world according to our taxi driver and I think he might be right.
Overall this was a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again.
