While on a holiday with my wife, I didn't want to take a chance on renting out an apartment, so I chose this hotel for its location, and I was pleased. The room seemed new and clean, with the kind of interesting floor plan and modern decorations that I like. A blackout curtain covers the large window at the touch of a switch. We did have to ask for face cloths each day, and the bed was quite firm for my taste. The lobby and stairways seemed spacious, and the bar staff was helpful and friendly. I don't think they have a pool here, but I prefer to swim in the Mediterrranean anyway. If I'd found a slightly better price, I would've given it 5 stars.
The location is not only one block from the Placa d'Espana mall and metro stop, but from the free CaixaForum museum, the hop-on-hop-off tourist bus stop, taxi stand, and a large hilltop park. There are other hotels closer to the beach, but the metro makes everything seem close.
