The location of the hotel is great. Close to the main shopping street of Passeig De Gracia as well only a short walk to Las Ramblas. You can easily catch a train on the R2 line from Barcelona El Prat Airport and get off at Passeig De Gracia.
At check-in I had waited for a while due to a family checking in ahead of me. The front desk staff was apologetic for keeping me waiting and was very friendly. She asked if I needed a map but had one. She also mentioned the free mini bar a couple of times. This is a great feature which they give you a beer, soft drinks, and water which they replenish daily.
My standard room had a double bed. It was very comfortable as had a very comfy mattress topper. The room is of a good size. The bathroom is of a good size as well with a shower over bath. It had good pressure for the shower. I could see La Sagrada Familia from my room.
It was a convenient walk to the main areas for sightseeing and restaurants. I recommend getting the Barcelona card which you can buy at the airport as it includes most transport within the city as well as discounts to the major sights including La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi Museum, and Picasso Museum.
The only negatives were that the one lift that was in operation was very slow (there are two lifts) and there were renovations going on but was advised at booking and didn't hear that much noise.
Would be happy to stay here again.
