My wife and I stayed in the Hotel Constanza for 5 nights over the 2012 Barcelona Grand Prix weekend.
The location as a base for the Grand Prix was pretty good. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the station Passeig De Gracia where you can catch a train directly to the Circuit De Catalyuna at Montmello (a 30 minute train journey followed by a 30 minute walk). We also found that the hotel was well placed for Barcelona sight seeing, with plenty of sights and restaurants within walking distance.
We stayed in a standard double room which was modern, clean and had plenty of space. It wasn't very well sound proofed however and you could hear people in the adjacent and above rooms more than you would like. When one room had a shower at midnight the noise echoed through the aircon waking us up (it was louder than if we had the shower on in our room and left the door open). The room had a nice balcony over looking the street, a TV with some English programmes, a safe and the toiletries were replaced daily.
It was quiet during our stay and it didn't seem like a lot of other guests were staying at the hotel. There is free wifi in reception and wired internet in the rooms (although we found the wifi worked in our first floor room which was good).
One point for future consideration would be the construction work taking place next door. The whole building has been torn down and it looks like it will be rebuilt in the not too distant future. We found there was no work on the Friday or the weekend but 8am Monday morning some loud machinery woke us up.
We didn't have breakfast or eat in restaurant Bruc 33 so won't comment on those. We did have a drink on the roof terrace which was nice although the hotel doesn't make the best is of it - there is no tea/coffee or snacks available. We also found a very nice pastry shop just over the road and round the corner that we would recommend.
Considering it was the Grand Prix weekend the room price didn't seem unreasonable in comparison to nearby hotels and if returning I would think about staying at the Hotel Constanza again.
