we stayed in this hotel for two nights after spending a week at a site 30 miles outside barcelona.It was a ten minute taxi drive from the station and situated in the montjuice area which was very lively....lots of shops and restaurants nearby and a tube station only a few minutes walk, also the stop for the aerobus was nearby which was very handy!!.....The receptionists where polite and helpful at all times, our room was situated on the 6th floor and was very spacious and spotlessly clean, plenty of room for myself , husband and two teenage boys. We also had a little kitchen area and fridge which was great for storing cold drinks.The air con was much appreciated as being the middle of august it was extremely hot, there is also a pleasent roof terrace area from which you can get great views...We decided not to breakfast in the hotel as quite pricey for four of us at 8 euros each...instead opting for croissants and coffee in a lovely bakery nearby...totalling about 8 euros( we were on a budget as it was near the end of our trip!!).....The hotel was in an ideal position for us to do all the things we had planned.....we walked to las ramblas....about half and hour away...and got the train back...fantastic area to visit and the port also was a lovely area, we spent the day at camp nou....a metro journey but well worth if for football ( or non football )Fans...and an evening trip to Sagrada Familia was lovely to see it all lit up, we used the metro easily and you can buy a ticket for ten journeys for 9 euros which can be used between your group. Our last day was spent exploring montjuice area...a short walk from the hotel....our flight was not till the evening but there was no problem leaving all our luggage in reception utill we caught the aerobus which runs half hourly. It was well worth a long walk up to the olympic stadium area and then a cable car trip to the castle..fantastic views of the city!!...we were very sad to leave such a fabulous city and our stay at this hotel was ideal for us.
