Great, elegant, lovely hotel at a reasonable rate. Rooms were great; spacious with a huge bed, walk in wardrobe and a small balcony. Nice bathroom and no problems with the shower temperature. Location was good being close to the main square (Catalunya) and a few Metro stations. The staff were friendly and helpful.
I asked for a room on a high floor away from the lift and noise of metro. Unfortunately none of these requests were adhered to. To be fair I didn't kick up a fuss as we had a room looking out onto the street, with a balcony. Food in the hotel is very expensive (28 Euro for breakfast I think) and unfortunately the noise from the Metro can be pretty annoying at times.
