This hotel is in a great location, 2 shorts blocks from Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas. Plenty of dining options very close by and the double-decker tour bus stops are also right around the corner. Rooms are a little cramped by US standards, but I came to see Barcelona and not a hotel room. Try to get a room with a balcony and courtyard view. Its quiet and you feel like you have more space to relax. Excellent breakfast with inside/outside dining options. As with most hotels I have used in Europe, the A/C is weak and you will need it in the warmer months.
