The location can't be beat, on La Ramblas and next door to Starbucks! Actually, the huge market is also about a block away, and the Gothic quarter is an easy stroll, too.
The rooms, while on the small side, are beautiful and unbelievably quiet. The bathroom is gorgeous and quite large for a European hotel. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The staff was friendly, but we didn't really need much except for dinner reservations one night. (They came through for us, at an excellent restaurant we have also reviewed on T/A.)
One thing--PLEASE be careful in the lovely bathrooms! I took a slip in the bathtub and have some major elbow bruises. Ouch!
