I chose this hotel as it looked a bit different from the usual chain hotels which have all the amenities but no special feel. As we walked into reception we were definitely wowed by the view to the restaurant. Arriving at 11am we didn't expect to get into our room but reception staff were very accommodating and offered us a choice of rooms available at that moment. We were on the 3rd floor in a room with a balcony looking onto the street. Stylish room and bathroom, plenty of space, old style wardrobe almost like an antique with safe inside. No problems with steet noise. Very comfortable beds.
Location was another reason for choosing this hotel as I'd previously lived in this area. It's not right in the centre but has so much close to hand. For example, Sant Antonio metro stop 5 mins away is on the purple line which goes to Sagrada familia cathedral, the number 64 bus to Barceloneta stops on Calle Tamarit and takes you to the city beach. Walking to Placa Catalunya probably takes 15 mins depending on how side tracked you get by all the interesting little streets you walk through en route. Several supermarkets and local bars nearby. We also found the aerobus stops two streets up from the hotel on the way back to the airport (nearest stop when coming from airport is probably Placa Universitat).
I got a special offer price so found it very good value. Would definitely look to stay here again provided if was within my budget.
