Location, location, location! Please remember this when you plan your trip to Barcelona and take a look at this place. My wife and I were in our honeymoon here and, when I choose this hotel, I was in doubt but once we get there... It was almost perfect. You are right in the heart of Barcelona, a major transportation point (Catalunya Place), next to major touristic places, you can find quickly a place to eat or spent time if you have nothing planned etc.
We booked for one week a room with view to Placa Catalunya and they gave us a room with terrace (which i think it's more expensive) with no extra charges, the staff is friendly, the room was beautiful, the bed was perfect (I'm almost 2 m high or 6'7''). It's a place where you can enjoy your vacation. If I remeber well, somebody said it's terrible they don't have a fitness room. You're in Barcelona, walk out of the hotel and you will came back exhausted in the evening.
One minus we had for the hotel, we tried one evening to eat at the hotel restaurant but we had to give up. the food was terrible (either the cook was in vacation or we had the terrrible "luck" to order the only uneatable food they had). But right next to hotel you'll find at least 5 or 6 places were you can enjoy a perfect dinner and this is not a major drawback.
Hope you'll find this review usefull in planning your trip to Barcelona and choosing this hotel. Last but not least, enjoy your vacation, Barcelona it's a marvelous city to visit!
