This has to be one of the best looking hotels I have stayed in. The rooms are comfortable and modern with a cute design of bathroom that really appealed. I felt I had struck gold. The breakfast was spectacular with beautiful spanish and more traditional elements offered. The location was good too on Placa Catalunya, although, as this does get very busy, you do gat a feeling of being in a fortress more than a hotel. At the back too the modern architecture was contrasted with more traditional elements.
The down side however was the service. I found reception staff curt and unwelcoming, typified by the indifferent response to me asking the receptionist for directions to the police station to report my stollen mobile. In fact most staff seemed unhappy and barely smiled except for the doormen. This lessened the experience for me.
