The hotel is very well-situated in the Eixample district, which has many of the great modernist buildings but is relatively un-touristy. We stayed in room 103, which was off the street though a little bit dark. Though the room wasn't next to the elevators, we still heard room-shaking rumblings intermittently throughout the day and night, which I think must have been related to the parking garage directly under us. It didn't keep me from sleeping, and I'm a very light sleeper, but it was a little unnerving. We opted not to buy the room package with breakfast included, as it seemed expensive, though a couple mornings we did stay for breakfast and found it a good deal at around 6 Euros a piece.
We were able to walk to the Sagrada Familia and other sites in about 10 - 12 minutes, and with all the locals walking around with their kids and shopping baskets, we felt very safe even late at night. It was easy to hail taxis from in front of the hotel as well.
Hotel service, as many have said, wasn't bad but could be improved a bit. When we asked about how to get to Parc Guell (which we couldn't walk to as it was too far), we were told we could take the bus. But the clerk wasn't sure of the bus number, or where exactly to pick it up, or what it costs. He probably just should have said it's best to hail a taxi from out front, which is what we did!
