Good location because really close metro station - is an advantage.
Rooms are clean. Breakfast is ok.

We booked over hotels.com and we didn't get what we booked. :(

We were surprised to find out that our name wasn't on the booking list @ Reception because 'system was down'.
It was sad and funny talking with receptionists about the problem.
We waited until 18:00 after some room was given to us.

Cons:
Bad sound isolation - you will hear everything from corridor.
In my room water pressure was low.
Also i missed refrigerator in my room.

Bottle of water there would be really nice.

Have fun.

Perfect location with great facilities.

Short walking distance to museum and also the neighbouring building is las arenas.

The room size really amazed me, much bigger than I ever expected.

Hotel staff really helpful.

The pros of this hotel are:
clean, large rooms, helpful staff, very good breakfast (if it is not included, it is only 10 euros per person), excellent cappuccinos for breakfast. The magic fountain area, as well as Plaza espana, are right there next door, although I would not consider them a main attraction.

The cons:
Everyone keeps saying that the location is great, but to me, great location means "walking distance," and this hotel is about 30-40 min walk from la rambla, bari gotic, etc... There are buses and trains all around hotel, and that is what we utilized.
The restaurants in the area of the hotel are not very good.
Overall a nice place.

I booked my trip through booking.com & was not at all disappointed. The hotel was excellent. Perfect location. Right next to the magic fountains, hop on & off bus stop, next to the airport shuttle stop & a very short taxi ride from the hotel & Shopping center is across the road. Staff were lovely & very helpful. I paid for a city view & when we arrived the lovely guy on reception gave us a free room upgrade. The breakfast was yummy & kept us full through the day. Definitely include this in your package if you can. Well worth it.

Will most definitely stay at this hotel again.

My one & only negative comment...they are terrible at replying to emails!!!

We didn't pick this hotel, the room was provided by an travel agency as part of a cruise package.The room is (we are still here at the hotel) clean, stylish and quite functional. I wish that there are charging outlet by the bed in stead of by the TV. The AC is basically a heater, no matter how low I turn the dail, it still blows hot air. Location, however, is perfect. Airport shuttle and Metro which stop right in front outside main door. Across the street, there is a mall with a well stocked supermarket and high end restaurants and cheaper alternatives.
But it is strange that Marta (the lady at the reception) never offered the key to the room safe till I asked. It is even stranger still when I discovered that the couple who also purchased the same package, got a room on the 4th floor, while ours is on the second. The only reason I can come up with is that we are Asians, since this couple arrived a few minutes ahead of us. This makes me feel very uncomfortable because I feel that we're being treated differently, even at this international metropolis and at this time and age.

Nice hotel. Very clean. Had a lovely non-smoking room on the 6th floor that overlooked the Plaza. Huge, excellent breakfast offering, including made-to-order omelets. Good internet service in room and lobby. Reception desk staff remained cool and pleasant under stressful conditions when multiple bus loads of tourists arrived at the same time. Good location. Bus stop at the door. Tourist info across the plaza. Former bullfighting ring across the street with great shops and restaurants. Easy stroll through pleasant area to La Rambla area and museums. Nice little family restaurants nearby. Within walking distance to the Olympic stadium and environs. Bus to airport at the door. Would stay again.
