Hotel America is in a great location and good neighborhood. Its a short walk from all the shopping and eateries North of La Rambles and just 3 blocks from pg. de Gracia. The Hotel has modern updated rooms w/flat screen TVs. The hotels have all
hardwood floors, so there are times during the day when you will hear somebody move a bed or chair above you but it wasn't much of a distraction to us. The hotel maintains the place very nicely and there is a fabulous pool on the roof that turns into a lounge at night serving cocktails late into the evening.
The hotel was in a convenient location. Close to buses, subway and some attractions. One can walk to some of them. Bakeries,coffee shoppes, convenient stores and restaurants around both ends of hotel. About four blocks away from shopping.
Subway nearby. No ice in rooms but clean and neat. Noise can be easily heard but pretty quiet when one needed it for sleep. I wasn't in the room much so it was o.k. Staff was accommodating. I would go there again if and when I return to Barcelona.
