This hotel is a great choice, but you should know that it's like staying in the middle of a gay bar on Fridays and Saturdays. The roof is very busy and popular. This may or may not be your thing.
One thing I was disappointed in is that I was on a long Euro trip and needed to do laundry in Barcelona. The hotel wanted me to use their laundry service which is pretty over priced. Without their help, I found a place right around the corner that was very clean and easy. The detergent was automatically done in the machine and included in the price, so all you need to bring is your dirty clothes. It's called Splash BCN - http://www.splashlaundry.es - PUTACIÓ, 199 (PLAÇA UNIVERSITAT ) - It is right around the corner from the hotel.
Also, the double bed rooms are two single beds pushed together.
The hotel is very close to the METRO and in a great location.
