We chose this hotel as it gave us the best location for a visit to the Nou Camp (20mins walk) for El Clasico and easy access to centre for nights out and sightseeing. The metro entrance is just outside the hotel and just 5 stops to Las Ramblas. As an added plus, it is only 5 mins walk from Estacio Sants, the main train station connecting to the airport. If you stay here, buy T-10 tickets which cover metro and the airport train. Not the greatest looking street and nowhere nearby where I would want to eat or drink but a good supermarket and bakery nearby and as said, it is really easy to get into the centre.
One negative on the location front is that the open air tourist buses pick up at Estacio Sants but it is virtually impossible to get on there. We ended up having to get the metro into the centre to get on.
We were allocated an 8th (top) floor which is the executive floor and the receptionist said it was a good room. I would describe it more as functional, everything was fine but definitely dated. We did have a spa bath but it was quite small. TV was small and only Spanish channels as far as I could tell. Road noise was quite loud, even from the 8th floor, especially on week days. Room was well cleaned.
Breakfast was pretty good with a wide choice, although the previously mentioned included cava was a bit ropey! Big pluses for a relaxing weekend was breakfast until 11am and checkout at midday.
Overall, a well located, mid level hotel that is perfectly acceptable for a good weekend.
