I stayed in this hotel in early August with my husband and two young children. I can't fault the location at all - we were slightly nervous that it was a bit too far out but actually it was perfect. The airport bus stops right outside and the red and green metro lines run from stops in the Ramblas and Placa Catalunya through Placa Espana so it's really easy to get around.
We checked in fairly late in the evening and unfortunately our first experience of the hotel was an incredibly rude receptionist who looked us up and down and demanded a passport! Once we'd got past her we were actually really pleased with both the room and the amenities on offer. We didn't sample breakfast, but we did use the pool which my husband and kids enjoyed. The rooms were cleaned very well each day - although some of the fixtures in the bathroom were a bit 'tired' the bathroom did the job and there was plenty of room to sort the kids out (the first time my boys had seen a bidet which prompted a few questions when we first arrived!!)
I'd stay in this hotel again. I don't think it was the best in terms of value for money but it more than made up for that in terms of its prime location. Staying here gave us a great opportunity to explore parts of the city that we'd not visited before and all in all contributed to a very enjoyable week's holiday.
