* Staff are very friendly and helpful - everyone I met, from the reception staff to the people at breakfast, was great
* Large and comfortable rooms - far bigger than you'd expect for the money
* Very clean - room was cleaned thoroughly every day
* Nice location - a km or two from the main tourist areas, but right my a Metro station, and with some great neighbourhood bars, restaurants and shops around you - try 'Velodrome', a 10-minute walk aay, for some of the best tapas you'll ever eat!
* Great breakfast buffet - enough to set you up for the day!
* Some nice touches - free wi-fi being the best
* My room was a little shabby. Nothing terrible, but the furniture and decor were quite tired
* The shower's pretty weedy; again, not a huge deal
* Room service restricted to just a few hours each evening
* The noise. Others have mentioned this, but the noise insulation is poor. I stayed on the top floor and could hear doors closing and toilets flushing downstairs. It wasn't as bad as some hotels, but if you're super-sensitive to noise, take earplugs!
All in all, a great, friendly and decent-value hotel.
