Excellent location, right off Placa de Catalunya and a few minutes walk to the Ramblas. Convenient to be able to stop back at the hotel during the day if needed (we took advantage and had a few siestas). Very close to Universitat and Placa de Catalunya metro stops. Room was clean and quiet (we requested an inside room) and beds were comfortable - it was the best 3 nights of sleep we had on our 10-day trip through Spain and France. Reception staff was helpful - airline lost our bags and they were prompt in calling us to retrieve them when they arrived. Breakfast was excellent for being included in the room price. Only major downside was I couldn't get the wifi to work at all - not just in my room, but also in the common area on my floor or in the wifi spot on the first floor.
Pros: Location, beds, sleep quality
