Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel last week for 4 nights. We did ask for a double room, but got twin beds - but this is pretty much the norm in Europe anyway! We got this hotel for approx. £60 a night including breakfast, so for what we paid, we were very happy.
Our room was on the 15th floor and had amazing views over Barcelona, we oculd even see the Sagrada Familia in the distance! The hotel is well appointed (although, their hairdryer is rubbish, bring your own if you are used to a powerful hairdryer!), and spotlessly clean. The rooms are cleaned and made up every day, and you can choose if you want fresh towels every day or not.
The breakfast was very good with a variety of meats, cheeses, fruits, cereal, toast and a few cooked options every day (as well as tea/coffee/water/juices etc.!)
The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Metro station, which takes you right into the centre of Barcelona. We bought a 3 day ticket which cost about £15 which covered all of our transport for the time we were there - well worth the money! Not only the Metro a fast reliable method of transport, it is also very regular (only having to wait a couple of minutes for any train), and very clean. Badalona is at the end of L2, which meant that in the mornings you were guaranteed a seat on the metro!
Badalona itself is a nice town, it seemed very friendly, and although we travelled at the beginning of May it did seem that it was still slightly out of season. But as the Metro runs until something like 5am, you can stay in Barcelona for the nightlife!
The beach at Badalona is nice too, is it a bit grainy, but I think that is pretty typical of The Med's beaches!
Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel, friendly English speaking staff, and good quality rooms, go and have fun in Barcelona!!
