Excellent hotel, clean, comfortable, modern, with latest furnishings. Excellent breakfast, pool facilities, helpful staff, good price. And great, great location, right between the old city and the Eixample district and so ideal for exploring both the various districts of the old city and the the area around the Passeig del Gracia with all the Gaudi and other modernist architecture. Also great clothes shopping, right at hand and within easy walking distance, and an outstanding, old fashioned wine store about five blocks away, as well as lots of good restaurants.
Remarkably quiet—except when Barcelona wins soccer championships, but then closing the door and turning on the air conditioning solves the problem. Very convenient for subway—two stations very close by—and so convenient for train station, Park Guell, or Montserrat. Only complaint: shower head took a while to get used to so as not to spray water around the washroom. And quite reasonable price for all this. I would definitely stay here again.
