Just returned today from a weekend break here. Booked it after looking at reviews on here and got a really good B&B rate with Travel Republic. Location is excellent, metro right outside and 10 min walk to Las Rambla. Rooms are good size, plenty of wardrobe space, no tea and coffee making though. Bathrooms spacious kitted out in marble and with a small selection of toiletries. The hotel and rooms are modern in design, clean and well cared for. Reception staff very efficient and helpful. Breakfast very good. Hotel bar is quite small (in the lobby) and a few times the barman wasn't there so there was a bit of a wait to get served - we gave up on one occasion. I had requested a room that was quiet and on a high floor but we were put on the third floor on the front of the hotel - as soon as we got to the room I phoned down to ask to move as I knew there was no way I could sleep with such a loud road so close, I phoned down to reception straight away and they moved us to the rear of the building within 10 minutes - yes, the view isn't great at the back but it suited us better. All in all, a superb hotel that you must consider for a Barca short break. Can highly recommend.
