          Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
          gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
          excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
          spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
          authenticity protrudes from the many independent
          record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
          that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
          rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

          The hotel website indicates that the prestige room category has a better location/view than the superior category, but I noticed that someone had asked about a balcony and they were advised to book either a superior room or a suite.
