We booked the hotel based on reviews and quick response from the hotel regarding accomadations for handicap travelers. We are a family of 7, booked two rooms prior to our 10 day Disney Cruise.
Entrance: Very charming and has a ramp, so not a problem at all for wheelchairs.
Location: Close to Plaza Catalunya (5-10min walk), but not in busy, nosiy area like off La Rambla. Many great restaurants right out the door, don't miss Ciudad Capital for excellent tapas.
Rooms: My husband and two small children (age 1 and 4) fit comfortably in a standard room with a king size bed and small couch. Room was small, but clean and bed was comfortable. The rain shower is amazing, they provide hair dryers in every bathroom. We also had wonderful view from our balcony. Airconditioners worked fine in every room.
My parents and younger sister stayed in a handicap room which was HUGE (even for american standards)! There was a roll-in shower and the toilet was an appropriate height for my father's rolling shower/toilet chair, the large bathroom was very easy to maneuver around. In addition,they provided an extra full size bed for my sister. No problems at all for my father who is completely wheelchair bound, plenty of space...probably triple the size of a standard room. The Lift is small, but still not a problem for my father.
Decor: Primarily black and white, modern and elegantly simple.
Cons: the hotel lobby is tiny, but that can be a good thing...no lines. There is no bell hop (but the staff were very helpful in assisting us with our bags...tons with small kids and one handicap traveller), and no ice machine, which is sometimes useful in hot weather.
Overall Impression: beautiful boutique hotel with a lot of charm. Would definitely stay again when back in Barcelona and highly recommend this hotel for travellers in a wheelchair (especially room 409).
