We stayed at this hotel last month for two nights and had a very pleasant stay. It has only recently opened so the bathrooms are spotless and well designed. The decor throughout the hotel is very stylish and modern. We asked for a bed for my 8-year old and he was given a very comfortable put-up bed. The location is perfect - about a 20 minute walk to the main shopping areas and not far to the nearest tube.

This is a lovely hotel. Everything was new and clean. Our room was large and extremely comfortable. We had separate areas for reading/sitting, bathroom, toilet and sleeping. The room lay out is open plan, but sliding dividing doors allow the room to feel cosy when they're closed. the room had a couple of censored lights which were great for providing enough light if you moved at night but didn't want to wake your partner turning the main lights on.
The hotel staff were brilliant and always provided great advice/answers to our questions.
We were only disappointed we travelled in winter and therefore didn't get chance to try the pool.
Zero complaints.

My daughter and I traveled to Barcelona over Christmas and we stayed at this great hotel. It's practically brand new. The room was very nice sized by European standards, the location is a bit off the beaten path of La Rambla, but still close enough to walk. Then hotel staff was great and always helpful. If you are in Barcelona it's a great quite place to stay.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights.

The hotel is NEW. You can still smell the freshness through-out the hotel and hence very very clean and nice looking.

The staff are very attentive and will do what they can (within limitations that they have) to help you out.

The rooms are tiny and have a very odd layout. The bathroom sink is located in front of the door (literally). The layout was too modern and open for my liking. Felt like I was sleeping in the middle of my bathroom. We had 4 bags and were fore ever stepping over our stuff because the rooms were so small.

Sleep quality: 7/10.

Breakfast: Repetitive but good quality and fresh.

Pros:
Clean
Good Location
Good alternative to a 5 star

Cons:
Tiny Rooms
Room layout could be better.

This hotel doesn't deserve a "bad rating" but I can't say it is "EXCELLENT" either. It is probably towards the high end of the 4 star rated hotels.

If it is within your budget and you don't might a smaller size room and are after a solid 4 star hotel then go for it.
