We stayed here for four nights at the start of September 2013 and found it to be exactly as expected.
The hotel is ideally located for exploring Barcelona if you don't mind walking (Casa Milà or La Pedrera is only one 'block' south) and if you do the Metro is on the doorstep as are stops for both of Barcelona's hop on, hop off tour companies. If you have a car, there is a handy car park opposite and Avinguda Diagonal is extremely close for getting into or out of town.
There are some great locations nearby for eating as well.
The room we were allocated was large enough for the both of us with a large shower and had a little balcony with a great view onto Passeig de Gràcia (possibly Barcelona's most expensive street).
The room was cleaned well every day and the breakfast was adequate but nothing special.
One thing to note, the double bed was actually two mattresses and the 'join' did cause some discomfort occasionally.
We were a little disappointed by the welcome on the front desk when arriving for the first time and they did try to charge us for additional breakfasts that we didn't have but this didn't detract from the overall experience.
