“I stayed in the B-Hotel, Barcelona, for a week in September 2007. I found the staff courteous, helpful and professional. The room was modern, well furnished, clean and comfortable, with the double glazing quite effective in filtering out the traffic noise. In contrast to another internet post I read, it really was not difficult to get familiar with the lighting system in the room.
After a long day, it was nice to relax on the roof swimming pool patio at sunset and admire the view across the Plaza de España. A few practical points regarding the location: being at Plaza de España it is very well situated for public transport (buses and metro) and the airport express bus also stops at Plaza de España. B-Hotel is also one of the hotels closest to the Barcelona exhibition/congress centre; you can walk there within 10 minutes. A bit further on, towards the Palace of Arts, is the Montjuic magical fountain, which is a must to visit at night (Thursday to Sunday) to enjoy the wonderful effect of the changing water shapes and colours in sync with the music.
The adjacent bullfighting arena is in the process of being converted to a shopping complex, which would further enhance the good location of this hotel when it is completed.”
