We have stayed in other 3 star hotels in Europe which you would only rate 2 stars but this hotel merits its 3 stars, although you may not be able to tell this from its Reception. The hotel is located a couple of hundred metres down the Ramblas and to look at the reception you would not think much of it, however checking in was quick and efficient and although we were too early to get into our room we were able to leave our bags which allowed us to go and try one of the nearby tapas bars. Once in our room we found it to be large and clean with a balcony allowing us to look over the Ramblas and Boqueria market, the bathroom was also quite large and clean with the usual accessories. Breakfast was provided in a small room located on the first floor and while there was not a lot too pick from it was adequate and gave you a good start for the day ahead.
The location of the hotel is ideal as you can if you wish walk to many of the locations within the centre of Barcelona and the underground is located at the top of the Ramblas at Placa de Catalunya, where you can also catch the hop on/off tour buses.
One area I would pick up on is that the hotel does say that its rooms are soundproof, which, we did not find to be the case for room (309). The shutter which may have helped with the soundproofing failed to shut properly and while we did not find this a problem due to it being quiet (off peak) this could be a major problem during peak periods.
