Generally speaking this was a good choice as the hotel is very close to Plaça de Catalunya. Apart from using the sightseeing bus on Day One, we walked everywhere from the hotel base. On the plus side, the room was clean (tiled floors) and the bed was comfortable. There was a kettle to make tea and coffee, no fridge. Our room had a very small bathroom with a bath and a shower over the bath. The water pressure was good and plenty of hot water. Towels were changed daily. A small wardrobe with fixed hangers also housed a room safe. Gripes about the room: Our room faced onto the street and it was very noisy. The air conditioning did not work so we had to have the window / double glazing open at night to breathe. There was constant street noise of traffic and people passing by. Also the underground trains rumbled through underneath the building. At times there was noise from within the hotel and rooms either side. No hooks on back of bathroom door, curtains over window were dirty and the plastic 'blackout' curtain was ripped and useless. No English TV channel. Breakfast was quite adequate, though the 'hot' dishes were usually lukewarm. The staff were helpful and polite and spoke good English. I probably would stay there again but would request a quiet room.
