Booked a superior room through hotels.com for 360 EUR for 4 nights. E-mailed the hotel in advance and requested a room on 5th floor to avoid noise. Was told none of the superior rooms are facing Sagrada Familia.
Taxi from BCN T1 was approximately 30 EUR/30 minutes from the airport (Sunday afternoon) and 40 EUR opposite direction (Thursday morning).
Receptionist informed us that due to low occupancy breakfast (14 EUR, I think) should be ordered the night before. We were allocated room 501 which was very large with 3 floor-to-ceiling windows looking down on the streets and were not asked to present a membership card to a sports club. Nice bathroom with toiletries, slippers, robes, shower and bath tub. However, the water pressure was very unreliable, especially the hot water. Two small flat screens, one facing the bed, the other facing the sofa. Large mini bar. Room was nice and spacious but there seems to be a general lack of attention to details such as no mini bar pricelist, no telephone list, coffee machine was not refilled and no overview of facilities. Free and fast wireless internet. Good location 5 mins walk from Sagrada Familia and sub-way station.
Was given one day access to spa/gym per person. The gym/spa is nice but very busy and could be any other health club outside the hotel and is not really targeting hotel guests. Apart from access to the independent gym next door, the hotel has no facilities such as restaurant, room service, concierge, bar, etc. so do consider avoiding this property if you like to spend some time in your hotel and enjoy its facilities. Due to lack of facilities the property has no real atmosphere to it and should be seen more as an apartment hotel than a proper hotel.
