The hotel was okay for the purpose - that was to see Barcelona without paying over the odds. It is quite far out of the centre but we enjoyed the trip in, which we mostly did on T3 which stops on the road outside the hotel. We therefore experienced both the touristy Barcelona and life in the suburbs. Check-in was unbelievably slow and we waited one hour there! Admittedly they said there had been a problem with the computer that day... Also, rather irritatingly, the keycard for the door seemed to de-programme itself every day. However, I really appreciated the free safe in the room. We only ate breakfast in the hotel but that was variable. One day the coffee machine broke and someone put tablecovers on the floor to wipe up the mess and then just left them there! There was only one person on and the work was just too great for her, the next day there were two people on and the coffee machine had been replaced and that made it a bit better. Unfortunately, on our last day we arrived for breakfast just after a large adolescent group had been in and it was just a dreadful mess and much food had run out. However, the hotel was very clean and bedrooms were well kept.
