Just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. Great location - just across the road from the Sants train station where getting on the metro is easy. Train directly from the airport to Sants is 3.60 euros and takes about 25 minutes. We were on floor 14, any lower and I think the traffic noise might have been a problem, but it didn't worry us. They don't tell you that they charge for the spa and indoor pool, but at 6 euros per day it was well worth it and quite quiet. Free use of the Expo roof top swimming pool across the road if you don't want to pay in the Catalunya.
Paid the bit extra for breakfast, well worth it. Great selection of food and amazing views from the 23rd floor restaurant. We also dined in the restaurant one evening, food was superb and watched the sun setting over Barcelona.
Great city, hotel location easy for travel and far enough away from the crowded La Rambla. Lots to do in the city itself, Turistic open top bus stops outside Sants train station and provided a great tour of the city for 23 euros each. CampNou within walking distance, or a couple of stops on the metro.
All in all, good hotel and would choose it again if we return to Barcelona. Large spacious bedroom, good facilities and helpful staff.More
