I stayed here in January with my 14-year old daughter and we loved it. We had a room in the front, from which we could see the port. Because of the double windows, you don't hear any noise from the street.
We loved the way the room was decorated, the beds were large and comfortable and all amenities were good: flatscreen TV (mostly spanish channels and cnn-stuff, though), large bathroom with good rainshower. The guys at the reception were really nice (one of them, Jan, is Dutch, which is of course especially nice for Dutch guests such as ourselves).
The location is absolutely great. Right by the harbour, and all the nice neighbourhoods such as La Rambla, El Born, Barceloneta, Mare Magnum and the Gothic Quarter can all be reached within a few minutes walk. There are many nice tapas bars in the direct neighborhood of the hotel.
We didn't take breakfast in the hotel. However, I attempted to have diner there in the hotel restaurant, but wouldn't recommend it. The waiters seem slow and incompetent and don't speak English and I didn't like the food.
The only thing that could be better was that the walls between rooms are not soundproof. We could hear everything in the room next door. One night, our neighbors were watching a soccer match (with all the necessary cheering and hollering) until after midnight, but luckily it stopped immediately after we called the reception about this. The other nights were completely quiet. One other minor thing is that the temperature of the central heating could not be regulated from our room so we had to use the aircon, which is of course not very ecologic.
We heartily recommend this place and would certainly come back if we ever visit Barcelona again.
