We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in April. It is in a good location, with the metro right outside the front of the hotel. We had room 618 which is at the back of the hotel. Rooms were a good size, and very clean as was the good size bathroom. The only downside was no tea and coffee facilities in the room. We only eat breakfast at the hotel, but it was very good with a fair choice of hot and cold dishes.
All the staff at the hotel that we encountered were very polite and helpful.
Hotel is about a 10 minute walk from La Rambla and about 20 minutes from the port/beaches. Not many decent restaurants near the hotel, but within a 10/15 minute walk there are plenty around the main square and in La Rambla.
Would definitely recommend this hotel
