This hotel boasts of being both 4 star and soundproofed. It was neither....The room we had was basic and clean but dark and was at front of the hotel on first floor. The noise was unbelievable!
The lighting in the public areas was obviously sensor controlled and so was pitch dark until you waved yours arms in the air. As a female I would not have felt safe if travelling alone as it didn't always come on.
Breakfast was basic and nothing exciting served in a dull and dingy area.
Good point about the hotel was the location. Only few minutes from La Ramblas and Barcelona Cathedral and it's very comfortable bed.
Wouldn't recommend the hotel or stay there again
