The hotel couldn't be in a better place in Barcelona: Right where all the bars, restaurants and shops are, many sights are in walking distance and there is a metro station close-by. Also easy to reach from the airport (take the aerobus to Placa Catalunia, it's a 10 min walk from there).
On the downside, our room was tiny, the mattresses hard, our double-bed turned out to be two separate beds that would drift apart on any wrong move, and the only window the room had was to the dark inner floor - i.e. no glimpse of daylight. We resorted to checking the current weather conditions on the internet before we left our room.
The hotel looks newly renovated at first glance, but if you have a closer look e.g. in the bathroom corners, it's clearly not that new...
In two nights, it was quite loud - we woke up in the middle of the night when some jerks came back and continued party in the hotel lobby and in the hotel's hallways. That's not the hotel's fault directly - but the 24/7 receptionist didn't do anything about it either.
We did not have breakfast (16 EUR p.P.), since there are many coffee shops nearby that offered great breakfast.
All in all an okay stay, but not the best value for the money.
