We (2 adults, 2 children) stayed here in August 2005 on our first visit to Barcelona. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the management and receptionists speak good English. The bedroom was comfortable and perfectly adequate and contained a safe to leave valuables (at a small additional cost). The bathroom was large and absolutely luxurious! The quality and variety of the buffet breakfast was superb, but note, the restaurant is closed in August for the chef's holiday (we were not able to find this out until we arrived).
The location is a little off the main tourist track being on the very edge of the old Gothic area. I think hgchuy's review is unfair; yes, the hotel is in a narrow street in a working class area. If you turn left out of the hotel you enter a labyrinth of narrow streets where the locals live and hang their washing from balconies as they have for hundreds of years. This is the real Barcelona. Take the usual basic precautions and you will be quite safe (certainly in daylight) although I admit we didn't go here after dark.
Turn right out of the hotel to the Arc de Triomph and the adjacent Parc de la Ciutadella; stroll here in the evening and watch the locals playing football, boules, making music and dancing. Very pleasant.
Picasso Museum, cathedral, harbour, zoo etc. are all within easy walking distance.
You need to take care from pickpockets everywhere in Barcelona but you are far more likely to be targeted at one of the main tourist sites (Segrada Familia, Parc Guell, La Rambla) than here.
Would we stay at this hotel again? Yes we would.
THIS IS A GOOD HOTEL ABOUT 10 TO 15 MINS WALK FROM LAS RAMBLAS .A METRO STATION IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. VERY LOCAL AREA NO ONE IN LOCAL BARS CAFES SPEAKS ENGLISH. THE HOTEL BATHROOMS ARE LUXURY WITH A DOUBLE SHOWER, THE BUFFET BREKFAST IS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE HAD IN ALL MY TRAVELS FOR A 3 STAR HOTEL.
Unique Quality: HANDY LOCATION IN A QUIETER LOCATION AT NIGHT.THE BATHROOMS ARE VERY BIG.ALL IN ALL AGOOD HOTEL.
Directions: ROUND CORNER FROM ARC DE TREUMPIH METRO STATION AND SQUARE
