Hotel was nice, modern and clean. Staff on arrival were excellent with clear English. The hotel rooms are a little small but comfy bed and clean. Bathroom very clean and modern.
Hotel is in an ideal location opposite 24hr supermarket and close to restaurants and cafes. Short walk to Tube station and other attractions ideal location for couples who enjoy a walk as most of Barcelona attractions can be walked to from hotel.
The hotel was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good, with a variety of hot and cold foods. The property is very small and so are facilities, such as pool and gym.
The area seems to be a hang-out for homeless and itinerant people -- we passed several sitting or lying in building doorways. No decent shops to buy snacks, drinks, or produce -- all were dirty inside, fruit was rotting, and one shopkeeper tried to charge us more than sticker price on an item!
pros - walking distance to everything
cons - bedding needs upgrade and TV, coffee machine would be nice, charging for a safe in a four star hotel makes it seem more like a two star....I travel lots and it was the first time in a four star to get penny pinched on a safe....put the batteries in and maintain it.

Central and comfortable hotel in the Gothic District of Barcelona. This hotel has an excellent location, next to the Ramblas …More
The location is very good and the property was renovated in modern style. Looks great.
The price is very competitive BUT a 4 star hotel that does not have amenities....
The bath soap (only 1) is the size of a chewing gum.
No shampoo or any other amenities.
Its a pity, the hotel could easily deserve a 5 rate.
Excellent hotel in an excellent location. Staff were so helpful and polite. We had a problem with the safe in our room and is was dealt with immediately.
There was a very good selection at breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Friendly, helpful receptionist, with the breakfast options explained thoroughly. Whilst booking in three other members of staff walked through and all greeted us. Finished with a complimentary glass of Cava.
Receptionist insisted on taking us to our room, where everything was explained.
"perfect location on La Rambla and Plaza Cataluna."
the hotel is on a great location, and the front desk was easy to check in. It was early, around 11am, but we could get our room right away. Unfortunately it had no view, so if you want to see something else than a wall from the next building, do not go into room 414 or 415. I assume the first, second and third floor have the same wall view.
Our friends had 409, which was perfect. Our room could get an update with USB plugins and a cleaner shower. The king size bed was very comfy, also 2 single bed where in the room, enough space for a family. But be aware of the AC, the room is too big to handle this little vent. Need to keep it running throughout the day to have a pleasant temperature for the nigh, especially in summertime. But allover it was good a great hotel and we would go back - to another room.
Barcelona's Old Town, the Ciutat Vella takes in the Barri Gòtic and the world-famous promenade of Las Ramblas. The former is the city's medieval core, a maze of atmospheric alleyways clustered around the splendid Gothic Cathedral. Quirky specialist shops and characterful bars and eateries abound. Don't miss the Museu Picasso and the Museu d'Història de la Ciutat, as much for their palatial settings as their content.
