We found Hotel Boria BCN via Trip Advisor and Expedia. The reviews were mostly good on both sites and the photos appealing. The rate was acceptable for where we wanted to be in the city.
1. Location - it is located in or at least very close to the Gothic area of the city and is a block from the Jaume I metro (tube) station. A number of excellent attractions are within an easy walk.
2. Separate rooms - I traveled with my wife and two boys. We booked a "loft" on Expedia and stayed in room 303. The kids loved having their own room and their own mattresses. We loved having our own space as well.
3. Fridge, sink, and dishes - there was a small refrigerator, sink, dishes, and some silverware that allowed us to eat in or snack a few nights. That was convenient and welcomed.
4. High ceilings in the main bedroom.
5. Great towels.
1. Smell - the small lobby and lower levels of the hotel smell badly.
2. Noise - the hotel is located in an area surrounded by lots of foot traffic. The noise at night started early (8 pm) and went on late (sometimes past 3 am). It was RIDICULOUS - thank goodness we had noise canceling earphones - we had to sleep with them. Seriously.
3. TV - Limited to Eurosport in German or CNN in English.
4. Internet - We rely on the internet a lot to get around when vacationing. Unfortunately, the signal strength was very poor and the provider only allowed one user per "account".
5. Low ceilings - doorways were 5'9"-ish. We bumped our heads daily.
6. No real lobby or lounge area - Besides your room, there was no place to sit, relax, or do anything else. Internet was no better in the lobby than in the room.
