This is truly a little gem in Barcelona. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are immaculate, breakfasts are generous, and the overall feeling is warm and welcoming.
My friend and I shared a room that was in fact a junior suite - there was a sitting area with a comfy sofa and coffee table, a desk and chair (guests can borrow a laptop from Reception), and more than enough closet space. The marble walls and floor of the bathroom were nice and cool, and the biggest treat was a bathtub (as well as a shower) - unusual in European hotels.
There is a bus stop across the road from the hotel, with two buses that go to Placa Catalunya, and a Metro station just a few steps past the bus stop. There's a grocery store no more than a four minute walk away, open until 2100, good for snacks as well as real food. The rooms are quiet, even though Carrer Muntaner is a main road - and there are three layers of curtain, so you can have as much or as little light as you wish.
We were very happy with our stay, and wouldn't hesitate in the least to stay at the lovely little Hotel Rekord in the future.
