We stayed here for a week-long visit to Barcelona and were very satisfied. The room (511) was a good size, with a seating area and a desk. Marble bath with LOTS of water pressure. Room was quiet, in good condition and housekeeping kept it clean. See my room photos. Our package included the buffet breakfast, which was good enough (coffee, from the expresso machine, was very good); didn't eat there otherwise. There are some excellent restaurants in the neighborhood (found using Trip Advisor - see my PS below). Staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. As others have mentioned, it's a longish walk to the downtown but the entrance to the subway stop is literally just steps away (see my photo) the trains are clean and run minutes apart. Both the blue and green lines stop at that station. One gripe: The hotel does have wi-fi in the rooms but you're required to get a new username and password every day. Each is 8 random characters and the passsword is letters and numbers, and case-sensitive. A pointless pain.
PS: I highly recommend downloading the Trip Advisor Barcelona City Guide. A great way to find the best restaurants in your vicinity, wherever you are at the time - no internet connection needed (it works using your phone's GPS).
