Great value and a terrific location

Spacious room, friendly staff, nice pool area. Many rooms have no windows, which is a bit disconcerting. Very nice bathroom and linens, plus extra amenities like house shoes and bathrobe, which weren't expected, but greatly appreciated. The staff was terrifically accommodating. Nice art work throughout the hotel. Wifi was slow and often failed to pick up my email, so that's a bit of a downer. I also had to contend with the rumblings of trains underground from my room Overall, very nice hotel, incredibly reasonable for its location and amenities.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Many people will go to Passeog de Gracia for shopping from this destination. Don't bypass Rambla de Catalunya. Lots of nice shops and restaurants, but not nearly as crowded as Passeig de Gracia.
