Stayed end of Feb, hotel is located close proximity to Bull Ring Arena, MNAC about 10-15min walk. Metro about 5-10 mins. It is just oneblock from main road Gran Via del les Corts Catalanes. If you like walking you can actually walk to Playa de Catalunya and la Rambla, which is 20 mins along main road.
You can find nice food places close to hotel either on main road or on the roads around the hotel. Felt safe enough to walk in the evening back to hotel, although we didnt stay out later than 11pm.
Didnt eat at hotel, i asked the person behind bar /server one evening if he had a menu and was told they do only sandwich, fries and something else (slight language barrier) he recommended a pizza place opp Hotel.
At checkin we were also recommended this place.
I found staff simply unhelpful and just abrupt, short quick responses and nothing else. Not friendly at all or smiling.
Hotel is clean, room cleaned ok, we had no issues
Definitely say the walls are thin, can hear doors opening closing. You can hear showers/taps. But it was not that bad, we stayed out all day and still managed to get decent sleep. Housekeeping starts around 8.30am, well it did on our floor (3) so you can hear them in corridor.
Rooms were warm, given the cold season even with the fan/heating off.
Not much street/traffic noise given location is on a street corner-maybe due to being off the main road. But our room was also at back of property (so got a wall view)
