The location in the theatre area, with a metro stop outside the door and a few minutes stroll to las Ramblas (which is probably for the better) means this hotel is in an almost perfect location to explore this wonderful city. The staff are plentiful, knowledgeable and absolutely nothing is too much trouble for them. They will happily download and print fast-track entrance tickets to the attractions and also your return boarding passes. The wifi is excellent and there are two available computers, both Macs.
For first-time visitor the jump on/off bus tours are essential to get your bearings and can be pre-booked from reception at a discount. Once you get confident the metro is clean, cool, modern and logical.
Breakfast is perfectly adequate and served until a civilised 11am, bedding and towels clean every day and check-out until 1:00pm with a free locked baggage room make for a stress free experience. Just make sure your windows are properly closed to ensure a noise-free environment from the road if you are on the front.
This is not in any way a boutique hotel if you are going to Barcelona for the 'hotel experience' but it is perfect for a couple/family wanting to explore this vibrant and interesting city.

Room Tip: If you are on the front make sure you really fully lock down the excellent soundproofing windows for a good sleep, the city wakes early.

Great hotel conveniently situated for Barcelona highlights. Very accommodating staff. The superior room was well worth the extra money. We would definitely return to this hotel. We would strongly recommend this hotel.
