The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean.Although they do have a bar and breakfast facilities, we had booked aroom only and found the breakfast expensive - 16 euros - however there are many cafes nearby.
The hotel was a good base to explore Barcelona. We had a 10 metro ticket which we used to and from the train station and to get to places of interest.
We walked to Las Ramblas from the hotel - 15-20 min [ there's tourist information there ]. Also from nearby Placa Catalunya you can catch a bus to a see e.g. Gaudi house or the Miro Foundation.
