I gave this hotel only 3 "stars" because while it's overall OK, it's still not great. To set the scene, I stayed there for 4 nights during the Mobile World Congress which is a massive event for a city the size of Barcelona, which means that every hotel and guesthouse is full.
On the one hand, the single room I booked (on the 5th floor) was large enough, the bed was comfy, the WiFi was free (and worked very well) and the breakfast was included. The staff spoke a decent level of English. Location was excellent, next to Plaça de Catalunya.
On the other hand, the bathroom is small, cleanliness was just OK, and the breakfast's selection was very limited and not of the best quality. Also, I paid 120€ a night while the standard rate in this hotel is 80€ a night (and according to other reviews here the price can be as low as 40€ a night), and the whole stay had to be paid in avance. Finally, my room was very noisy as the guest in the next room was snoring very loudly. Ear plugs were a must!
In the end, I might consider this hotel again (better the devil you know!) but I wouldn't stay for more than a few days.
