We stayed in room 222 for two nights in mid-August 2012 and had a great time.
The room was well appointed with its own very attractive terrace with two chairs and a table. Note that it (the terrace) wasn't particularly private as it was surrounded and over looked by other rooms, not that it mattered to us. The room was spacious, well appointed with a large double bed and a very good shower in the ensuite bathroom.
We ate there both nights, the first selecting the "Taster Menu" for 49 Euros per person which was excellent. The head waiter gave us a really good local wine recommendation (Espelt Quinze Roures) which was a brilliant wine. The restaurant staff were very friendly and at times joked with us, despite the language limitations.
One slight negative was on the second night at about 7.30pm we went to the bar to buy two Gin and Tonics to be told by an unhelpful female receptionist that she couldn't serve us until 8.30pm! This hadn't been a problem on the previous night when we were served the same order at around the same time without issue!
Overall, it was a relaxing stay in a very clean hotel with loads of character and at a reasonable price. The walls of the hotel are festooned with Dali paintings and sketches; well worth seeing on their own. The location is excellent, very close to the square in the centre of town and the Dali Museums.
