This hotel is located within a 5-10 min walking distance from Cathedral, Picasso Museum, Ramblas, Monument of Columb, Placa Catalunya, Barceloneta, Port-Velle, Citadel and many other tourist attractions.
We stayed there for 10 days and liked it very much. Recently renovated, rooms are very adequate, a bit on a smaller size (expected from a centrally-located hotel). We never used their bar, never had their breakfast - so can't judge that. No wi-fi, internet in the lobby is slow and spotty.
It's a bit noisy - it's located on a busy Via Laietana. Plus there is a metro line going under the street. We stayed on a top floor, could still feel the trains passing by. Not a big deal - after a day of walking we would sleep like babies.
As an added bonus had a great (and safe) view from balcony of fire-breathing dragons during La Merce and strikers during the General strike.More
