My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in March 2012, paying €130 per night for bed & breakfast.
The hotel is down a short side-street off the large square fronting the old cathedral. It’s a great central location, easy walking distance to everything in the city centre.
Hotel staff are pleasant and helpful, all we encountered spoke good English.
There are three pcs with free internet access available to residents.
Our room was a reasonable size, comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom was clean and modern. TV had a number of English-speaking channels, of the news variety. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room are charged @ €1.50, with only two “mini-cartons” of milk provided each day. My only gripe.
Breakfast comprised a good continental buffet with hot options available from the kitchen. I wouldn’t recommend the scrambled egg, but everything else we had was good. We didn’t have any other meals in the hotel.
The nearest metro, I think, is Jaume on Via Laetiana, about a half-mile walk.
We had dinner at Café de l’Academia, Montiel and 4 Gats – all were worth a recommendation, probably in the order I’ve listed them from a food perspective, though 4 Gats would win on “atmosphere”.
This was our first stay at this particular hotel, after several trips to Barcelona over the past decade. I’d consider it good value at that price and we’d be happy to return there.
Incidentally, there’s a good, almost invisible Japanese restaurant called Shunka located almost directly behind the hotel.
