Not much to add that hasn't been said by others. Was at Avenida Palace on Sept 13/14 and, as well, Sept 23/24 for pre and post Cruise stays.
Asked for smoking for first visit but was not accomodated. Did get a smoking room on last visit.
Rooms are on the small size and dark as others have noted. Both rooms faced an inner court so got no sunlight at all. Walls are thin so you can hear the noise and flushing of toilets in next room.
All that said, we didn't spend much time in the room anyway so it didn't pose a great problem. Just should be noted.
The safe in the second room was difficult to operate but we did manage to get it working once a manager from downstairs visited and used a master code to reset the unit.
Bathrooms are small but clean.
We did not eat at the hotel (breakfast at the Obama pub two doors away was quite suitable and much cheaper than 30 euros. But Obama's is not open on sundays for breakfast).
The location of the hotel is terrific in terms of proximity to Las Ramblas. A 5 minute walk.
