The location is perfect - on the Plaza Catalunya at the top of the Ramblas. All the buses - airport and tourist - stop here, and there are subway stops too.
The hotel is gorgeous - all modernist and yet comfortable. We paid a bit extra for an upgrade so that we would have a good view onto the plaza and also so that we had the enclosed bathroom which was great - big soaker tub, separate shower stall with rain shower - lovely!
There is a great coffee bar next door, and in the opposite direction a Hard Rock Cafe. Great eats at both, and at the Pizza Marzano at the top of the Ramblas.
The front desk staff were great especially when my husband's wallet was stolen on the Ramblas. Leave your wallet in the hotel safe and take just the cash you can afford to lose.
Other than the pickpocket, we had a great time in Barcelona!
