It's a decent hotel - close to the Mediterranean so I'm sure some rooms have an amazing view. I could just see the water from my 6th floor (street facing) room which I thought was nice since I didn't pay for any kind of a view. The rooms were nice, clean. The bed was a bit hard for my liking and that interrupted my sleep the last two nights I was there.
I was attending a conference at the Fira Grand Via and it took over an hour (two metro changes, a Renfe train trip and a conference shuttle) to get to the hotel in the morning, and about an hour to return in the evenings so be aware of this if you need to travel daily to that part of the city.
To go out in the evenings it was about a 20 minute (L4) metro ride to get to the center of town so that wasn't bad.
Breakfast at the hotel was expensive - 25 Euro "at the door" and 16 Euro if you buy breakfast tickets at check in. It's buffet only and I thought the quality and diversity of the options was lacking and quite honestly not worth either price. There are not many other breakfast options near by so you're a bit of a hostage. It is located near a commercial center but that was still closed in the mornings by the time I had to leave the hotel. On my last day I just had a croissant and cappuccino in the hotel bar before heading to the airport. It was 8 Euro but that seemed like a bargain.
I would probably not stay here again due to the location and lack of simple dining options close by.
