The location is 10/10. A1 or A2 bus from airport drops you right at Placa Espanya non-stop in 20 mins for €5.30. Buses every 10 mins 7 days a week and they are light blue in colour (all other city buses are red). There are several tube lines and you can walk up to the Olympic Park in 20 mins.
The Bull Ring shopping centre next door is very nice. Roof terrace is free if you go up via interior lifts or €1 via exterior lift. Great cafe and Supermarket in the basement.
Rooms were nice but need some TLC. The water from the shower does run over to the floor and our bathroom didn't have a door (the mechanism was there but the glass was not!) the rooms are dark even in the middle of the day and the lighting system is frustrating even with instructions. You can barely see in the toilet cubicle. However it was clean and quiet and beds are huge and comfy so it did the main jobs well and for £60 a night I'm not complaining.
Free wifi was superbly fast and easy and the staff were all efficient and nice to deal with.
You can hear the tube even on the top floor but it isn't a bother.
Barcelona itself was awesome. Highly recommend a meal at Gilda (look on here) and a walk on the beachfront. Parc Guell has stunning views also.More
