It's a fact that downtown hotels are rather expensive in Barcelona.
The Barcelo Sants offers a good alternative.
First, if you are flying to Barcelona, you can take the train (outside of Terminal 2) and go 4 or 5 stations to the SANTS station. The hotel is built above the Sants train station.. If you buy the "Barcelona Card", the train is free.
Then, if you want to go around Barcelona, there is a Metro station inside the train station.
Also, if you want to use the "Hop On, Hop Off" bus tours, both companies have a stop right across the street from the hotel. The SANTS station also have car rental outlets. But beware, it would cost you €25 per night to park at the hotel. There are also several city bus lines that stop there and thousands of cabs just outside the train station.
Note that you cannot access the hotel from inside the Train Sation. You have to go outside and find a small door that goes to an elevator to the hotel lobby.
Second, the hotel itself. As soon as you step in the hotel, you got the impression that you are in a science fiction movie. Everything has a black and white futiristic style. Some people likes it, others don't. But it is rather unique. That decor is also present in the bedrooms. Beds are confortable and the rooms have a decent size. Good service at the front desk.
Breakfast are rather good but we fond the dinner overpriced and food was not that good. We strongly suggest that you take the metro and go downtown for much better food and drinks for much less.
We really enjoyed our stay. Hotel gave us a good quality for a decent price and, due to the location, was extremly easy to go anywhere in Barcelona.
