This hotel scored high on everything. It has a really nice, young and funky atmosphere.
Breakfast is good. The rooms are very modern though they are missing a separation between the sleeping area and the WC/shower area.
The view from the top is beautiful on all hours of the day.
Really highly recommended!

Great hotel. Very modern. However the location is a little dingy and a stroll away from the city centre. From the hotel we took a wrong turn down a side street with prostitutes along the streets. Overall though the hotel itself is great. Best features- the breakfast was very good, free wifi helpful, and provisions in the room also great (Nespresso machine!). We stayed as a couple and were upgraded to a deluxe room as we requested a king bed! Nice!!

Perfect points on every parameter:

Gym = check
Front desk staff = check
Concierge local tips = far superior to 5-star properties we stayed at in the French Riviera and in Rome, Italy
Room = small but cool and ultra-modern
View from the top = one of the best in the city (and often written-up in the magazines you see in the seat-pocket of your transcontinental planes)
Location = check
Price = fantastic value

Room Tip: The higher you go, the bigger the view -- and the closer you are to the Barcelo Raval's equivale...

I am sitting in my hotel room writing this review while looking out my panoramic window at a great view of this wonderful city. Room is a nice size with a comfortable king size bed and lots of amenities. The roof top lounge I'd wonderful at sunset and the hotel restaurant is quite good. Staff has been very accommodating and helpful. Pool is very small and not worth packing a swim suit. I love the contemporary styling which fits in nicely with this eclectic city.
Now the downside. The Raval area used to be known for pimps, prostitutes and pushers. They have cleaned it up quite a bit but there are a few hookers plying their trade. The location of the hotel is otherwise pretty good and there is a metro close by as well as a taxi stand in front. All in all I recommend the hotel wholeheartedly, a great value and a nice stay.

Room Tip: 10th floor has the best rooms with a view.

Didn't stay at this hotel but we did end up eating here and it was so, so bad.... Six of us all had a bad experience with our order. The food just isn't good. So do yourself a favour and just stick to the cocktails and drinks and eat elsewhere. Funky hotel too, so the rooms may be nice and the staff were nice and the place is clean.
