We stayed here on the first leg of our Spain trip. The hotel itself is quite nice, the rooms are adequately clean and nice, the staff was very helpful. The lack of internet was a little disappointing, but everything else seemed great.
Location: There is a positive and a negative to the location. The positive is that it is right next to the train station and it is walking distance to quite a few nice areas of Barcelona. The negative is that the area that the hotel faces is not very attractive (the train station) and there are no good places to eat within a short distance.
Lastly, the restaurant upstairs has some amazing views, but the food is not very good (and very expensive). Avoid having dinner here...stick to just breakfast.
One key tip for staying here is to go buy water and other goodies from the market right next door, as everything is extremely well priced.
