Hotel was nice and service was excellent. The rooms were a bit out dated, but were clean and larger than most Euro hotel rooms. We did not dine in the hotel so I cannot rate the restaurant. Most importantly the location was great and the staff went out of their way to help with our requests. A couple of steps in either direction takes you to Born , Las Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya and quite a few restaurants. This hotel is located on the plaza with the Barcelona Cathedral. There were quite a few events in the square. There is a stop for the sight-seeing bus very close. Also one minute away there is a large covered market....not boqueria large, but a nice place to shop for food close to the hotel. We traveled with two small children and their family room consisted of two separate bedrooms and a large bath. For the price and location I will stay here on our next trip to Barcelona. There was very little noise, much quieter than the Ramblas area. This is not a 5 star hotel, but I gave it 5 star rating because for us it was a perfect fit due to location, family room availability and service. I recommend this hotel.
