    I stayed here on a Saturday night in November 2011. The hotel is about 30-40 minutes from the airport by taxi, but it is quite easy to get there by train/subway instead. I was only in town for about fourteen hours, so didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel (didn't even get to try the bed out!).

    Impressions as below:

    The good:

    professional, friendly staff
    clean and bright room (I was upgraded to Comfort room on the 7th floor with a view of La Sagrada Familia in the distance)
    metro/tram/bus nearby

    The bad:

    for a new hotel (opened Oct 2011) it is showing its age: shower head was old, leaky, had shower curtain that clings to you halfway through, etc. Hallways, carpets, etc. also a bit worn. Expected more from them in this regard.

    Overall:

    This is a reasonable and pleasant hotel with friendly staff, a few stops on the subway from downtown Barcelona. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider the hotel again.

    Wow, that's quick. Surprised it would be showing so much wear so soon.

    It's not newly built. They rebranded another hotel and weren't as thorough with the renovations as I would have expected ;)
