We stayed here for 3 nights recently and it was great. It's not a big hotel which adds to the atmosphere of the place, along with the architecture of the building. Well located, just walk down las rambla, not through the gothic quarter on your way home. Not only will you avoid the pick pockets but the prosititutes also! But that, obviously, is nothing to do with the hotel! The hotel is really pretty and clean. We had an interior room with looked into the little courtyard. We were a little disappointed with the view but actually it was wonderfully quiet and we got a brilliant nights sleep. The room was extremely warm though, the temp was about 20 degrees outside but we needed to have the air con on about 14 to make it cool enough . Breakfast was lovely, as a lover of cheese and potato omlette I was in heaven.
We need to check.in for our flight on the way home, there was a computer with printer for guests. This was really helpful.
Aside from the hotel, when in Barcelona eating stick to side streets. Do not eat on the rambla or in squares, you'll pay a fortune for crap food. We paid 4 euro for a small beer at one point!
