Located close to one of the world's top tourist spots, the hotel is naturally handy for all local transport, in particular the excellent hop-on-hop-off tourist buses and the even better Metro. Barcelona's public transport is top notch, as it needs to be in such a large city, and cheaper than most.
For the price the hotel has no shortcomings. It's modern, clean, comfortable and blessed with very capable staff, as evidenced by the following anecdote.
Having reserved our final morning to visit Gaudi's eponymous masterpiece, we were dismayed by a queue so long that joining it would have put our airport time in jeopardy. So I took some local advice and nipped back to the hotel to book online. A long story, it was a far from straightforward process which culminated in the ticket collection details being emailed without first being shown on the website. Not normally a problem, but an unlikely set of circumstances meant that the details were sent to an address not accessible for 24 hours. Nothing for it, I thought, but to write off the 70 quid and do without visiting the Sagrada Familia. But one of the receptionists noticed I had a problem and insisted on calling the location's admin office; despite my scepticism, within 10 minutes he had printed out the tickets he got emailed to the hotel and our morning was saved. Bravo, Ignacio, you're a star! I hope your manager reads this.
If I visit Barcelona again I'll look no further than the Ibis for my accommodation.
