If you're short on time in Barcelona, and not overly fussy on your facilities, this is your choice. Located in the Bari Goti region, the La Rambla is also a stones-throw away.
It is true that this Hotel doubles as a Hostel, but they separate the floors, and we heard minimal noise. Next door they also own a cafe, which is convenient if you're after foreigner friendly food, which doesn't only comprise of HAM.
The staff in the morning were extremely friendly and helpful, with the staff at night being very unhelpful and feeling like they didn't want to be there. Save your queries for the mornings.
The rooms weren't overly large, but hey, you get what you pay for. You're paying for a great location here. When you're on holidays you don't want to be paying with "time". With your budget, choose a spot central to maximise your holiday experiences.

WE ARE COMMING BACK to Barcelona and to this hotel
This was a great hotel at a low price--a hard combo to find. The morning breakfast was good, more than just bread, coffee and juice with a lot of variety, linen napkins and tablecloths, make your own individual coffees, teas, hot cocoa, etc. more than many hotels offer, and I was particularly impressed with the service by one man fluent in English at the front disk and the gentleman who took care of the dining room. The price unbelievably low was such a real bargain.
Fantastic experience. Staff was helpful in every aspect. Helpful with directions, getting tickets to enter Barcelona"s fantastic venues. Fantastic Sunday Brunch and a good breakfast offering in the restaurant. I travel a lot and this was one of the most pleasing hotels overall that I have stayed at.
The Novotel Barcelona Cornella is a great family oriented hotel, with very pleasant and helpful staff. We couldn't fault it. It was precisely what we were looking for. Although situated next to the motorway, we couldn't hear any traffic noise. As a family (two children aged ten and twelve) we would definitely stay again if visiting Barcelona.
The hotel was very new and modern. We were immediately met upon arrival by hotel staff who were very friendly and helpful. They gave us some drinks to enjoy while our bags were taken to our room. Josep assisted us with booking our dinner reservations and activities. He also gave us some great tips on restaurants. The room was very clean and had a great view of the street. Although it was on the street, it never seemed like the road noise was loud. It is located in a great area and is close to the metro.
