Stayed here with my partner for 3 nights in November 2013. Great hotel - modern interior and VERY comfortable bed. Wonderful reception staff, who were very helpful with questions about the surrounding area.
Close walk to the Gaudi cathedral - 10-15minutes and wonderful bars nearby such as Mari Bola Bar (cheap good qual wine) and Tuscania food and wine bar - great mojitos and amaaazing pizza!
Generally a good area with great transport links and a supermarket literally next door. Wonderful bakeries for fresh breakfast pastries.More
