This hotel is in a perfect location. There is a metro stop within 5 minutes walking from the hotel, and Plaça de Catalunya is a 15 minute walk. There are lots of cute bakeries, gelato shops, etc on the same street and the Picasso Museum is right around the corner. Everything in the room was new looking and very clean. However, the mattress was very uncomfortable. It would maybe be alright for a night or two, but not for more. If I came back to Barcelona, I would absolutely book this hotel again if they got better mattresses but would probably look somewhere else if it was a longer stay.
Pros: Location, cleanliness, room was spacious, room has a balcony, free water bottles in a fridge in the hall, rooftop pool, staff speaks English
Cons: Bed was really uncomfortable (super hard mattress), room smelled slightly of fresh paint, no fridge in the room, noise from street can be an issue if you are a light sleeper but wasn't a big problem for us
