The hotel is worth it's price which was (75-80 euros/ night)...but keep in mind, it is a solid 15 minutes walk away from the center of town (La Rambla). It's fine during the day, but once it gets late (around 9pm), the neighborhood gets very quiet and feels a bit unsafe.
The rooms are modern and clean, but definitely could use more lighting. It was very very dark with just two ceiling lights (almost impossible to write the postcards i had bought). The TV barely functioned...kept getting a message about the satellite being out of service.
The highlight of the stay was the restaurant, which I believe was called the Market Restaurant. Extensive menu (there is something for everyone) and the price was just unbeatable. If there is one thing i would go back for, it would be the food. Although, dont expect too much out of the service...as there are about 4 waitresses serving a full restaurant of people.
