We have just spent four nights at this hotel, and I can confirm what other travelers wrote in their reviews: the hotel appears as brand new and spotless clean; the reception staff is very kind and willing to provide information and directions to places to visit and restaurants; the rooms are OK (not very big, nor cramped) and all the amenities and services are adequate to top-tier hotel class (and somehow better than some so called "4-star" hotels I visited in other occasions....).
The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood, out of the main tourist areas, though at just 150 m from the closest metro station (line no. 3), at about 50 m from bus stops and at 10 min walking distance from the "Font Màgica" and "Palau Nacional" site. There are just a few bars and restaurants in the immediate premises, however this wasn't a big problem for us, as we spent every single minute of our stay for visiting this beautiful city !
One only negative note: our room was located at the second floor, facing the main street. We were not disturbed by the traffic in the road but sometimes we could perceive a little noise from the metro line underneath the hotel (as a sort of a distant rumble): this wasn't very annoying to us, however you may want to ask for an upper floor room if you are accustomed to sleep in perfect silence.
