We spent 3 nights here in June 2013. The hotel is easy to get to from either of two metro stops on the green line and made getting here from the Barcelona-Sants easy. The hotel is gorgeous on the inside and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Everyone we spoke with knew English and appreciated our attempt at Spanish :) The room was gorgeous too -- best bathroom I think I have ever seen in a hotel anywhere! The room itself was a little small for all of the furniture in the room (probably could have done without the extra chair and small table) but we had a queen sized bed room -- bed was extremely comfortable. Our room was on the backside of the hotel over an alley with 3 restaurants. We were on the 3rd floor but it was noisy at night... but we kind of expected that being on Las Ramblas and in the middle of it all (Monday night was actually the loudest of the nights we were there -- including Saturday and Sunday). The rooftop pool and bar/dining area is gorgeous - you have a 360 view of the city and at sundown, it's just beautiful. Drinks are a little expensive compared to the cheap cervesa you get everywhere else but no more than most nicer restaurants. Overall, I think it's the nicest hotel I have stayed in anywhere but you do pay for the niceness. Saturday was the most expensive night and got cheaper the other nights. Easy walking distance to all major tourist spots - no need for a car if you buy a multi-day pass for the trains. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone!
