Great location, a value at the right rate
Hotel Atlantis is in a perfect location, a few blocks from the famous La Rambla and Placa Catalunya...and very close to the Metro. It is a bit dodgy looking from first glance...as it is just a doorway into the small lobby/check in area.

My original room was very small, which usually is not a problem, however, the window opened on to a ventilation shute...room 507. I asked to be changed...and was put in really nice, large room...that ended up being on the other side of the same ventilation shoot. I ask for a change once more, and they offered me a room on the front of the building...which was wonderful - room 403. It was a large room with doors that opened on to the balcony area. While I had read issues with noise being on the front side of the building...there wasnt any unless you opened up the double doors. The room was good sized. Nice bed. Very clean. Furnishings were a little worn. The bathroom had plenty of space, fresh towels and lots of hot water. Wireless was not really available in the room (but it does work well in the common areas on 1st floor and breakfast room)...and they dont provide a network wire...so bring one as there is a network plug that you can plug your laptop into. But you can also get it through Hotspot barcelona wireless for a small fee in the room that worked well for me since I did not bring a network wire.

Staff was not very friendly...and in fact, I found them to be a bit standoff-ish. Breakfast was OK...the standard continental meats, cheeses, cereals, pastries and other quickie items. The scrambled eggs were not really edible as they were really runny.

The rate of 74Euros a night was about right. I wouldnt pay much more than that.

Overall, the location, clean rooms, nice bed, clean bathroom, balcony...and again, the location...make this a good value and I would definitely stay there again.
