I would definitely recommend this place to stay for a weekend, as it's quite expensive but luxurious. It's good value, though, because it's a little way out of town, and there's no way any 'normal' people could afford this luxury IN town!!
Great views if you stay from say the 15th floor upwards - try to get a room on one of the higher floors, facing the city. You can see a lot of it through your window!
Now for some important tips to make the most of your stay:
Get from the hotel the departure times and location of the free shuttle bus to the hotel from the airport, otherwise you may have to use a combination of metro, bus or taxi to finally get to the hotel.
Get a higher floor, as I say, for a better view, and make sure it's a view of Barcelona city.
Use the free shuttle bus to the city and back every day, but get in the queue early as there are only 12 seats available.
Have breakfast in Barcelona, not in the hotel, unless you want to pay 25 euros per person each time!
There is a spa for over-18s. I went with my young daughter so we couldn't use it.
Used as a luxurious base for exploring Barcelona and then getting away for a peaceful night, it would be hard to beat this place!
And great showers, if you're a connoisseur of showers!
