We stayed for 5 nights and could not find any major fault. The hotel itself is very contemporary and stylish, the lobby, restaurants, corridors and rooms are some of the coolest I have seen. We booked the standard room which had more than enough space but didn't opt for the breakfast as it was far too expensive. There is a shopping centre across the road which has several excellent, small restaurants where you can have a nice breakfast and anything else you need. Visit Carrefour for anything you forgot to pack! The Metro is about a 5-minute walk up the road and I would highly recommend it, so fast and easy to use. The Centre/La Rambla is about a 10-minute taxi-ride but I would avoid using taxis if you can, they are a tad expensive. If you get a room overlooking city you won't be disappointed but if you don't, you'll be looking onto the Novotel and a building site. The rooms are very comfortable but the bath/shower might put some people off as it's not very private. We didn't get much of a long lie as the room next door's motorised blackout blind seemed to be faulty and was very noisy when opening and closing. The rooftop area is brilliant with 360 views of the whole of Barcelona and when the Torre Agbar is lit up at night it's spectacular. Excellent hotel, would definitely go back.
