Location is great and the breakfast is good. The building is little bit old but comfortable. Note that Mobile World Congress held on the end of Feb, the price of accommodation is not reasonable in Barcelona.

Great location
The best part is the location.. the not so great part is the street noise and the necessary stair climbing with the bags. Very friendly helpful staff!
