We chose a 'priveledge' room, with a private terrace, rather than book one of the many hotels with a roof terrace, and were delighted.
The room was modern, with a large, comfortable bed, flat screeen tv, i-pod docking station, nespresso and manageable air-con. The bathroom had a good, powerful shower (over the bath) and included a good selection of toiletries.
Patio doors led onto a tiered terrace, of dark wood and slate, with two loungers, plants and a table and chairs. It was very sunny in the morning but shaded in the late afternoon, though still warm and perfect for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. There is an attractive bar area on the first floor, staffed in the evening but operated as an honesty bar during the day, where you can get a nicely chilled bottle and an ice bucket to take up to your terrace.
The terrace was ideal for breakfast, fresh fruit from the Sant Josep de la Boqueria market with some natural yogurt (bought the day before) with an espresso (bring your own pods for the nespresso machine or you'll be charged €1.50 each; there is a nespresso shop across the road)
We also had a hotel breakfast, on our last morning at €18.50 each, which was a good quality, served in the bar area.
The location of the hotel was perfect, situated midway between the two Gaudi buildings, Casa Battlo and La Pedrera, making it easy to walk around Barcelona; 20 mins to Sagrada Familia or the Barrio Gotico, 10 mins to Placa Catalunya and the top of La Ramblas. Plenty of good shops and restaurants are nearby and it felt perfectly safe, even at night.
