This hotel is excellent. Very clean, nice rooms and a lovely breakfast. It is also opposite a brilliant beach. We were fortunate enough to get a sea view! Yes you have to cross a road to get to the beach, but this is not a problem. Brilliant hotel for a morning on the beach and then an afternoon and evening in the city centre!
The nearest tube station is a 5 minute walk away and then within a few minutes you can be in he centre, at La Rambla for example. We bought an unlimited 4 day travel card on arrival at the airport and I recommend this as the tube is a great way to get around and it got us from the airport to the hotel and back for the flight home too!
Be aware that the tube operates all night on a sat night but only until midnight on other nights. To be honest after a full day sightseeing we were ready to get back and have a rest by then. There are a couple of bars that stay open later along these a front near the hotel anyway if you wanted another drink on return.
Some people say this hotel is too far out, I wanted to write a review because I just can't see why. It honestly is not far once you jump on the underground.
