Given the relatively low price for our top floor room this was excellent value for money. The room was very spacious with a large and comfortable bed, an enormous bath and a lovely terrace although being next to a busy road suffered from traffic noise. The air con was quiet and effective.
The lower price reflects the less touristy location but there is no problem getting the metro or bus 59 (which goes direct from the port to the hotel) and the area contains plenty of good restaurants such as the historic Velodromo Bar or Mariscco seafood both of which I would recommend.
The Eixample area also contains many of the modernista (art nouveau) buildings including Gaudi's wonderful La Pedrera (get there early to avoid the queues)
The breakfast cost €10 if you book it when registering and is reasonable if a bit crowded at times.
Overall I would recommend the hotel as long as your priority is comfort and value rather than character.
