We've stayed here a couple of times now & would definitely book again. We had a lovely room the first time overlooking the 14th-C Catedral [not Gaudi's Sagrada Familia] & when, on the second visit the first room they put us in was not to our liking they moved us to one that was - no problem. The location is perfect. There are plenty of tapas bars & restaurants within easy walking distance, but you'll want to explore further anyway. We had tickets for a football match delivered to the hotel - no problem. The AA City Pack pocket guide book for Barcelona is a hand luggage must. The Insight City Guide is also excellent. There is so much to see & do I can't fit it all in here! The buses & metro are excellent [but beware of pickpockets].
