I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and found it to be excellent value, with attentive service from staff. My room was quietly located and immaculate in cleanliness. Plenty of information was present in the room with details of local attractions.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful with a very good variety, even offering Cava as a drinks choice!
For those interested in working out there was no gym or swimming pool, but this did not detract from the quality otherwise. The hotel is less than 3 minutes from the Catalunya underground station and has very easy access from the airport. it is also well connected by bus routes into the city.
This is not a city centre hotel, so for those wanting to be able to walk to all the attractions I would look elsewhere, but for access to the Fira de Barcelona conference centre and Montjuic Park it is hard to beat. Gran Via deteriorates as one heads west from the Placa de Catalunya, so the hotel, being to the west of this roundabout, is slightly towards the less attractive end of Gran Via, which is why I only scored it as 3/5 for location (but make that 5/5 if you are at a convention at the Fira).
In summary an excellent hotel for convention goers and I would certainly return.
