I booked this hotel only based on the good reviews I had read, and it turned out that everyone was right. Location-wise Torre Catalunya is just a tiny bit off, but still offers walking distance to many attractions (for example The Magic Fountain of Montjuic).
The hotel was quiet and very clean and modern. I got a corner room (fourth floor, I think) and was very happy with how the big windows let in a lot of light. There are thick curtains though, so you don't have to worry about light when sleeping.
The only negative thing I can think of is that the in-room CD player didn't work. I told the friendly staff about this, and they promised to get it fixed, but didn't. Not a big thing.
Breakfast was wonderful, in the penthouse restaurant that offers a truly amazing view of Barcelona. Be sure to go up there!
Next time I visit Barcelona I would definitely consider staying here again. I really recommend this hotel.
