Stayed at this hotel for four nights from 27th April 2012. Was not too sure about our choice having read some reviews. I need not have worried. We choose not to upgrade our room and paid for a standard room. The room size was ideal for the two or us and a lovely large bathroom as well. We were on the 10th floor and it was lovely and quiet even though the hotel was full. Bar prices were very reasonable. Breakfast was great value for money (for those of you who seem to want an English breakfast, maybe you should holiday in England instead of being critical!!) this was a great continental breakfast with pastries, fresh bread, cereals, fresh fruit, cold meats and cheeses, certainly set us up for the day. Travel was easy on the metro (10 min walk) and the bus 41which takes you to Catalunya Square at the top of Las Ramblas. Buy a T10 ticket at the metro which gives you 10 journeys for just under 10 euros. This may be a little out of the way but great value for money as you get more for your money. Hotel staff were very helpful and gave us some good tips on methods of travel letting you know whether metro or bus is best for each journey. Would definitely stay here again.
