I was traveling through Spain by myself. I found the Andante to be a great value, very clean and user friendly.
This hotel is a very short walk from a subway stop and just a little walk to Las Ramblas but you have to walk through a sketchy neighborhood which I found ok during the day but not really great at night. There is a good Indian restaurant next door and a laundromat about a block away. It's much cheaper and faster to take the subway from the airport. I got a week pass and used the buses and subway and found them all really easy to use and there are stops very close to this hotel. There are buses that will pick you up right in front of the hotel and goes by all the beach areas.
The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and room was huge com paired to most European hotel rooms. The pool is small and I didn't spend much time there.
I would definitely stay here again.
