We spent 4 days at the Novotel Barcelona on April 2012. We were a family of 4, two adults and two teenagers. The stay was very good. We took the Novotel family package that allows getting 2 rooms at a reduced price.
The hotel location is excellent. Not in the crowded middle of town, but yet very close to a metro station (line 1) with very easy access to all city attractions.
The rooms looked new and clean. We stayed at the 7th floor, and besides the fact that in the mornings the elevators tend to be very crowded and the wait to go down tends to get long, we were happy with our rooms.
The breakfast buffet was excellent! It includes real coffee machines, an omelet cook that will cook your omelet of choice, and the jewel of the crown fresh breads and pastries just out of the over, The baguettes and croissants are as good as the ones in France and other prime Europe locations. To top it off, kids under 16 eat free so that the cost is very reasonable also.
The pool at the roof the hotel seems very nice. It was too cold to experience but I am sure that in summer the pool is a significant attraction.
Opposite of the hotel is a big shopping center with a huge supermarket. We used it a lot for some of our lunch and dinners.
Overall a very good experience. If we get to Barcelona again, I'll be sure to go to this hotel again.
