Had 2 nights here following a Med Cruise Aug 2012.
Hotel is brand new and very modern, we were lucky to have a room on the corner of the 18th floor overlooking the city. It was probably the best room in the hotel for views. The views from our room and roof terrace are superb, the whole city can be seen.
Our room was spotless and modern. Good TV with lots of choice, including the BBC which we were pleased about as we wanted to watch the Olympics. Free Wifi worked well, safe was big enough for laptop. Only crticism being that the towels are very poor quality.
Roof terrace is well done, not massive but a nice place for a dip and a drink, outdoor settees/chairs very comfortable.
Check in and check out a little chaotic due to big groups there at the same time. Reception staff friendly and helpful.
We didn't eat here, think 18 Euros is way too much for breakfast, there are plenty of options close by.
Location is fine, very close to the Metro (3 stops from the centre of the action) and tram. We walked to the beach several times in less than 20 mins, we also walked to the Sagrada Familia in around the same time.
We booked a taxi to the airport, this failed to show but the taxi rank is right outside and there are always taxis available, so not really an issue.
Overall, a great hotel for business and leisure. Would recommend and use again.
