Booked as part of a Barcelona Qwerty deal 3 nights BB including flight £190. There has to be a trade off at that price? 07.45 flight from Stansted, return flight 4 days later at 22.00 so 4 full days. Hotel was a little way out as others have stated but no hardship.
The hotel is modern, clean the bedrooms are comfortably furnished with good bathroom shower facilities, air conditioning is good and relatively quiet. There is some traffic noise but acceptable and did not prevent a good nights sleep. The reception lounge area is modern and ordering tea/coffee or drinks from the bar is not a problem although the barman is summoned by the receptionist when not too many people are about, but that is not a problem, service was friendly and good.
The breakfast was very good with a self service selection to suit everyone I would suggest.
It is very difficult to find the trade off against the price. as stated 10 min walk to metro and 15 min ride into centre was easy although some times metro could be crowded.
The plus side is the 23 euro metro, main line trains and bus pass was excellent value for money and can be purchased at the information desk at the airport when you arrive. Suggestion, purchase ticket for however many days you are there, take the main line train (grey line on map) R1 line from the airport to Barcelona Sants (3 stops) change to R1 line to Badalona this is a much quicker route and better comfort than using the underground, this can also be used to get in and out of Barcelona quickly from the centre, it is only a 10 min walk to the hotel.
We found prices in Barcelona not too bad however a short walk to the seafront area of Badalona after a day in the centre was relaxing and the small restaurants and cafes offered excellent food and value for money so well worth looking at.
Overall a very good hotel, easy to get to once the above transports info taken into account, at the prices we paid I would definitely stay there again.
