Just back from a 4 night break (Friday out, Tuesday return). The hotel is in a residential area and is well served by local facilities - supermarket, fruit & veg shops, bar-restaurants, pharmacies and pastry/coffee shops. It's a few blocks walk to the nearest tube stations and Sagrada Familia. The hotel is clean, bright and recently decorated. We didn't eat in, as breakfast is better taken in coffee shops like the locals and we were never there for lunchtime. If you book here, I would advise using the hotel's own web site. You will get reservation & cancellation numbers. It may be possible to cancel/rebook and get a cheaper deal. NB - all visitors. Several rooms per floor are at the back of the hotel and have a view of concrete/brick walls only - but for this I would have rated the hotel higher, unfortunately the hotel was full and so we could not change. The only advantage to being at the back is that the room was very quiet. However, the area is not noisy at night so I would recommend specifying a front facing in your booking. The bedroom we had was on the small size (shoe prints on the wall either side of the bed!!!), though the bathroom was excellent. The air-con was effective, though too noisey to run at night. Hotel staff are multi-lingual. All in, I would recommend this hotel.
