The hotel is conveniently located - close to Sagrada Familia. In fact, if you are lucky, you might be able to see the massive structure from your room! If you like walking, it is a nice comfortable walk to the church - took us about 20m. Our room was nice and big with a separate sitting area. The staff at the hotel were very efficient and didnt take us long to check in or out. We were pleasantly surprised when they did not ask us to wait - the check in time was sometime after 1pm and we had arrived around 11am! most hotels, we were told, would not allow early check in so it was nice as we had had a long flight.
There is a tram and metro stop just 5mins away from the hotel so that makes moving around in Barcelona very easy. Getting to La Ramblas or Barri Gotic would take about 15m by metro. I would recommend buying a 1 or 2 day travel pass as it allows you unlimited travel on all public transport - including trams, buses & the metro. We didnt take the Barcelona Card as we were told that most museums were closed on the day we reached and hence it would be a waste.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed Barcelona, despite the November rains!
