I stayed in this hotel for 5 days on a citytrip.
It is great! It is a design hotel with a small swimming pool on top of the roof. The rooms are wonderful and the beds some of the best I ever slept in (and I was pregnant at the time and a difficult sleeperr)
Breakfast they do very well, not overly exaggerated but fine and enough.
The subway it: go outside and turn left, walk 2 bloks and under the nridge is the subway, it is really only 100-200 meters I think.
Across the road from the hotel, there is a small shopping mall. Nothing overly special, but they do have a open space inside where you can sit and eat and drink (food court medit. style idea) enjoy the weather and watch people go by: wonderful and well priced.
Have fun and enjoy. The best way imo to see a lot of Barcelona in 1 or 2 days, are the Bus Turistic (hoho) but tickets beforehand iof you can to avoid at least an hour wait.

There was a large Carrefours supermarket in the shopping center which we used frequently to stock up on snacks and drinks.
