We stayed here last week for six nights and were impressed with the location, quite close to Plaza de Catalunya, and the hotel itself. The hotel was contemporary and the rooms were very clean and well laid out. we even had a balcony even though it was overlooked by the back of some private flats so no inappropriate behaviour is recommended. The air conditioning is silent and effective (a true novelty)...that is the only thing that is silent....we had an interconnecting door to the next room and the sound deadening in the walls was of the pringle crisp variety....i.e. non-existent...we had two American college girls in the next room one of whom happily burped loudly on a number of occasions believing no-one could hear her....we even heard them discussing the merits of their male friends 'sexual' prowess...too much information. On the last night when they piled in at 3.00am worse for wear and played youtube clips on their phone and squealed loudly...I got out of bed and knocked on the door and politely told them we could hear everything and whilst we wanted them to have a fun holiday, and were not averse to a party or two ourselves, we could hear everything...they were mortified and apologised profusely. This hotel is very nice and well priced but unless you sleep like a tranquillised elephant I would caution you that if someone dropped a pin in reception you would likely hear it on the 4th floor. I am not damning the hotel, far from it, I would stay again and getting silence in a busy city hotel is nigh on impossible but I would ask reception who your neighbours are first :-)
