Ace location, friendly staff.

The location on la Ramblas is just perfect. Step out of the hotel and you're just across the street from Placa de Catalunya, a picturesque square/transport hub. You can catch everyday buses, tourist buses and the airport bus. Also steps from the hotel is the metro! The hotel is basic but it's location is perfect and the staff friendly and helpful.
There's not much in the way of facilities but for me on a city break, I don't intend to spend much time in a hotel room. Our room, luckily overlooked la Ramblas (there are apparently some rooms with less attractive views so you may need to stipulate when booking, as we did) and a decent sized bathroom, plenty of storage space and a flat screen TV. The lift is minuscule, stairwell less than beautiful and reception not much bigger than a broom cupboard but was always staffed with people who seem to enjoy their job. Should I be lucky enough to visit Barcelona again this is where I'll stay.
