This hotel is quite new and is clean and tidy, as you would expect for it's age.
The reception staff were helpful and all spoke English to differing degrees, although I'm lucky in that my partner speaks Spanish :)
We arrived very early for check in (our check in was 2pm but we arrived from our flight at 10am). The room wasn't ready and they said it might be done by 1.30. We came back at 1.30, asked at 1.50 and the room wasn't ready. Dead on 2 it was ready. I'm not sure somebody was in our room cleaning til 1.59, but it's a minor gripe as check in is at 2 after all.
The rooftop pool is a great bonus and offers a nice place to relax. Don't expect to do lengths though, it's just for dipping in and cooling off. The downside of the rooftop pool.....
....from roof to floor there is a 'tunnel', for want of a better word. A space in the middle of the building to provide light to the inner rooms of the hotel. So some rooms look out into this gap, into other windows a few metres opposite. The problem is this: the rooftop pool is supposed to shut at 8pm. Every night of our stay ranging from anywhere between 9pm and 3am, there were groups of people on the roof shouting, singing, drinking and using the jacuzzi. All of the noise from these carries straight down that tunnel. We were 4 floors below and it was anger inducing.
The pillow was one of the ones that mould to your head, which I love, so that helped get some sleep.
The room was cleaned every day and new towels supplied.
We didn't have the breakfast in the hotel as it was around 15Euros per head.
The location was fine for us as we don't mind walking but it's about 15 minutes away from the top of la Rambla, 20 mins from la Sagrada Familia and perhaps an hour from Parc Guell.
There are plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes near the hotel so you never need to go far if you get thirsty or hungry.
On check out we were charged 2Euros a day for 'city tax', so make sure you have a few coins left at the end of your stay!
