I wrote all of this down while in the room so I could remember the experience clearly. We stayed in room 102. This hotel definitively wasn't worth the 110 Euros a night they charged us. The room is about 15x15 feet, with a small fridge, and a 13 inch TV with about 20 channels to choose from. Structurally, the room is fine, but the chairs were dirty, the blue bed covers had holes in them, and my bedsheets had a small yellow stain in it. The AC doesn't really cool on hot Summer days so you're better off going to the beach to remain cool. The closest it got to getting cold was 21C(70F), and that was prob due to the fact that it got cool outside. The only thing that was completely fine in the room was the bathroom, although the shower head needed replacing. The hotel is about a 10-12 minute uphill walk from the closest Metro Station (Alfons X) which tires you out in 90F+ degree weather and after walking all day (The walk only takes about 7 minutes downhill). To top it off, the hotel has no elevator. In front is a park in between the roads, and, since the road is a bit busy and the room not too well sound proof, you can clearly hear the cars passing by. It doesn't feel too safe walking around there late at night since the streets are mostly devoid of people. The only plus is that the hotel is close to Park Guell. If you want to be happy and comfortable, I suggest you stay elsewhere in Barcelona.
