Stayed for four nights as a family of four. Our room was excellent (room 175 first floor) though it was more like a room & a half as our children had their own single beds in a room separated by sliding doors (they also had their own tv & a/c which they liked). Beds were all comfortable & clean, with blankets in the wardrobe for those who may feel they need it. Bathroom was also clean, shower really nice with really nice toiletries with extras likes toothbrushes, combs, razors etc. TV even had BBC1 & 2 for those that like to keep in touch with what's going on back at home. Breakfast was a buffet selection with a great choice ie cereal, pastries, yogurts, fruit, cheese & cold meats who like the continental variety. For those who like something warm there were 3 types of egg, bacon, grilled tomatoes, sausages, beans etc. you could obviously eat as much as you wanted with tea & coffee ( & an expression machine) available. Breakfast was between 7.30-10.30 every morning & it was great to see even at 10.20 fresh food was still being put out for guests.
Location of the hotel is great. You have bus stops & a metro stop right by the hotel. You are a (slow) 10min walk from Barcelona port area which is also means you are 10mins from the Christopher Colombus monument at the bottom of Las Ramblas - where there are stops for the two different hop on/hop off tourist buses. If you turn left when you exit the hotel within a few minutes walk you will come across a Subway amongst other food stops. Otherwise on the walk to the port you will pass by a restaurant & a few other places that serve drinks & make up rolls for you all at excellent prices. Right behind the hotel (5min walk) there is a local pizzeria that will cook your choice right in front of you (small 6inch 6 euros cheapest) or you can buy large slices for 2euros to take-away. We used them twice & took the food back to our hotel room. Hotel guests can make use of a local gym (right behind hotel) for free. You will need a pass from the hotel to show the gyms reception. Gym is excellent with a separate area for cardio machines, an area for free weights & a general area for floor & normal exercise machines/weights. There is no water coolers/fountains to use on the floors so be prepared to bring a water bottle or you can buy a large bottle from reception for 1euro. I would definately recommend this hotel & stay again. The only reason why I've not given it a 5rating is due to no hotel info in the room ie a book explaining what services are available, cost, facilities of hotel etc etc. having one would of been really helpful ie we didn't realise they did room service until our last morning when we found their menu underneath some Spanish magazines that were left in the room.
