My girlfriend and I stayed here in August and absolutely loved it. For the price we paid you get an amazing hotel, which was only about 8 months old when we stayed there (built November 2013).
The room was amazing, really lovely facilities (only Sky News was in English on the TV though) and the free WiFi, whilst slow, was enough to check emails, Facebook, update friends from home etc. Wonderful shower aswell. All in all, the room was great. The only other negative is that the cleaners didn't replace the teabags, milk or sugar. However, when I phoned reception they were there within 5 minutes, so not the end of the world.
The pool is lovely, the views from the roof terrace are incredible. The food in the restaurant was nice, not fantastic, but the bar staff were great and made fantastic cocktails. The cooked breakfast was average but there are all sorts of other options you can have so something to suit everyone. There is a rooftop bar but all four times we went to the roof during our 3 day stay it was closed, even though it was meant to be open, but you can always get a drink from downstairs and take it up and watch the sunset over the city.
Getting there from the airport took exactly 11 minutes by taxi. The local taxis are about €25 but we used the Uber app and paid €12.
In terms of transport around the city, the nearest station (Ildefons Cerda) is a 2 minute walk, and from there its about 5-10 minutes into the city via Espanya station, so everything is super accessible.
To conclude, fantastic hotel, great location, great price. I would 100% stay here again.
