We enjoyed 3 nights here on 8-11 July 2014 and were very pleased that we chose this hotel for our break, after having worried about whether to book in a more central location. In fact, we found it perfect for us - only 15 minutes (and 20 euros) by taxi from the airport, and right next to the Europa Fira station. From here it was just a 3 stop journey to Espanya station where you can change lines to pretty much anywhere in Barcelona, get on the sight-seeing buses, or go to the Arena (go up to the roof for the view of the MNAC, or see the Magic Fountain show at night (highly recommended)!
The hotel itself is stunning - ultra-modern and truly different. The rooftop pool area is beautiful, with fantastic views of the city and a pool that is big enough to have a proper swim in. My one quibble would be the limited food menu available at the rooftop bar, but the draft beer was cold and drinks cost no more than other tourist prices in Barcelona. We had a superior room on the 16th floor, which was fab - we felt like we had walked into a Clockwork Orange (in a good way)! All white, the room was huge, the bed comfy, and the shower big enough for two. It did take us two days to realise how to operate the blackout blind for the window though - the switch controls are on the wall panel by the bed.
Last but not least the service was fantastic. All the reception staff we dealt with were friendly, with excellent English, with one young man in particular who went out of his way to help us print out our online tickets for la Sagrada Familia. Thank you to him :-)
An excellent base for a trip to Barcelona, and great value for such a memorable break.
