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.

I took my wife away for a special anniversary, the hotel had flowers waiting in the room for our arrival and gave us an amazing room overlooking the city, the staff were very friendly & accommodating, everything about the hotel was 1st class & I would recommend it to anyone..
The hotel is a little distance away from the city centre, you have a 10 minute walk to Hospital Clínic Metro station or the H8 bus, which is a few mintues walk will take you to the city centre. The staff in the hotel was fantastic and helpful. Any query that I had, they helped and accomodated me. The room was clean, good air conditioning system, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was great. It had all the amenities that I was looking for and provided the great comfort while in the room. Everything was clean. The breakfast buffet was great, would highly recommend it and had a great selection for you to choose from. All in all I believe this to be the best hotel that I have ever stayed in.
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.
An excellent four days at the Majestic with an upgrade to an executive room on arrival.
The hotel was well positioned for all sightseeing and the staff so helpful, with the concierge booking trips for us each morning.
On my husband's birthday they placed in our room a bottle of Spanish bubbly and a cake.
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.
Couldn't have picked a better location for las ramblas & local attractions.
The hotel Olivia Balmas was of a very high standard & the staff top notch - they couldn't do enough for us.
We would recommend anyone wanting to be able to walk to great bars & restaurants to use this hotel as a base - we will definitely be going back.
