Logistic is very good, few minutes from Plaza Espana where you can find both metro and taxi station, as well as a shopping center. Price (according to the price I got with Voyage Priveé) is excellent vs quality offered. The hotel is modern, recently renewed. Staff is ok. Only negative note is about acoustic absorbtion, which is weak in my...

The lobby is basic but I consider the room five-star with spacious and contemporary interior. It is located in a working class residential area, away from the tourist crowd. For its quality, if it were in a better location it may charge a much higher rate. It is still conveniently located; I could walk to the Tarragona or Espanya metro...
