The location of this hotel could not have been better - central, and lovely to sit outside and watch the activity on the plaza after a day of footing it around the city. Very pleasant and helpful staff and I was particularly impressed on arrival to be given a photocopy on how to look after myself in Barcelona - ie avoiding pickpockets, dark alleys, etc - a really helpful warning.
The room was certainly adequate - the single bed was very comfortable and while the furnishings weren't luxurious, the bathroom was well appointed. All very fresh and clean.
Lovely cafe at street level too.
