I stayed at the Barcelo Sants for 4 nights in late August. It was the designated kickoff hotel for a moto tour I had booked. I arrived via the train form the airport at the station directly beneath the hotel. It was a very easy trip in, and only 4 euros. The front desk staff is quite friendly and helpful, with excellent english.
It is across the street from a "Bus Turistic" red line stop, so sightseeing on the HO HO bus is just a few steps away. The station below the hotel is the main station for all the metro lines, too. You can get anywhere without using a cab. If you want a cab, there is really no waiting. The are always cabs out front.
The entire theme of the property is as if you are on a spaceship. Dave from 2001 - A Space Odyssey oversees the action in the lobby. The beds are very comfortable, even by US standards. Good toiletries, rain forest shower head, etc. Thick towels and slippers, but no robes.
My rating dropped the Sants to a "4 dot" because of the thin walls. I could hear the room next door easily, and the early maid service there was annoying while I was trying to sleep in and get my jet lag squared away.
I would recommend the Sants and stay here again. However, I would stay elsewhere if my wife was with me. the Sants is not really for romantic visits to Barcelona. The spaceship theme is pretty sterile.
