We spent four nights here and we were very satisfied with the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful (one a little grumpy guy but the others were so nice that it didn't matter), the room was very clean and in excellent condition and it even had an own terrace. The hotel has clearly been renovated recently and everything worked well. The AC was very effective - we didn't have it on at all after the first few hours because the temperature was already low enough. The bed was OK, bathroom also very nice and clean, although the bathroom door didn't have a lock.
The soundproofing could be better - you could hear everything from the corridor and also other guests' voices from the rooms. However, this wasn't a problem for us because we spent very little time in the hotel and all the other guests were quiet, too. But for sensitive sleepers this could be a problem.
The location was excellent, walking distance from everywhere. Also the Renfe train station where the train from the airport arrives is quite close. I would happily stay in this hotel again if I ever go back to Barcelona. There was no breakfast included but there were many small cafes, restaurants and shops in the same block so this wasn't a problem. There was also a safe for valuables at the reception.
