I stayed here for 4 nights in August with my sister. The hotel is very clean, with reasonable size rooms and bathroom, which again are very clean. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. There is also free wi-fi in the rooms. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the shopping centre 'Baricentro' which is open 10am-10pm, and has a supermarket inside as well as some other shops and Mcdonalds. My sister and I didnt have a car, but found it fairly easy to get to the hotel once we knew where we going. The staff at the train station were helpful, the only problem we had was finding someone that understood where we said we needed to get to. Also the tourist information at the airport didnt give us full instructions. You are able to get the train to the hotel from the airport, but you need to change trains which we werent told. You get the train to Sants Estacio, and from there you are able to get to Barbera del Valles, ask one of the people at the information points and they will tell you which trains you need to get. On arrival at the Barbere del Valles train station, there is a local bus which will stop at the 'Baricentro' shopping centre. You can see the hotel from this bus stop, it is a couple of minutes walk.
To get into Barcelona, there is a bus stop approx 10 minutes from the hotel, which when we were there cost 2.10 euros for one way. We used the A2 bus. Again, if you ask at the hotel they will tell you where you need to go, although I wouldnt recommend this option with children as you have to walk along a busy road to get to the bus stop. Once in Barcelona, everything is within easy reach via the metro system, which is like the london underground, once you work out the system, you will have no trouble getting around. there are maps available which tell you where the attractions are.
I would recommend visiting the magic fountain (which doesnt run on monday, tuesday, wednesday). which is a fountain which lights and music show, starting at 9pm, really worth seeing. There is a beach which is within walking distance, if you dont mind a bit of a walk. as well as a port with another shopping centre as well as the aqaurium. During my stay i visited Barcelona Zoo. found it to be good value for money.
Overall a very good stay.
