Is this a good hotel and location in Barcelona

Wife and I are going to Barcelona for 4 nights late summer as part of our vacation. We booked at the Ofelias Hotel located at Carrer de Llanca, 24, Barcelona, Spain. It is 0.1 miles to Plaça d'Espanya and near Parc de Joan Miro. Pictures and proce are attractive. Can anyone tell me if this is located in a good location foe tourists?

The Ofelias Hotel is in an excellent location.

Some of the best restaurants and tapas bars in town are on your doorstep.

Tickets (very fun, affordable and ranked #42 restaurant in the world) Had a fabulous 13 course lunch here a couple of months ago with some beers for 70€ pp: http://www.barcelonabook.com/tickets...estaurant.html

Bodega 1900: http://www.yelp.com/biz/bodega-1900-barcelona

Espai Cru: http://www.riasdegalicia.com/

Nikkei restaurant Pakta: http://www.barcelonabook.com/pakta-restaurant.html

You are also very close to the local atmosphere Poble Sec district with one of the most fun tapas bar and cafe scenes in town: https://www.airbnb.no/locations/barcelona/el-poble-sec

Two of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona are in Poble Sec, traditional La Perla (lunch only) and old school and rock'n roll Xemei.

Last, but definitely not least, you are at the foot of Montjuic (Jewish mountain) with the castle on top (spectacular views of the city and the sea), world class museums, great theaters, 1992 olympic sports arenas and lots of greens. http://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/...-montjuic.html

The fabulous Miró center: http://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/...joan-miro.html

The Catalan National Arts museum: http://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/...catalunya.html

The so called theater city at the foot of Montjuic and close to the hotel: http://www.barcelonaturisme.com/wv3/...el-teatre.html

Perhaps a swim in the olymic swimming pool, open to the public in the summer months. "The world's best swimming pool": http://www.theguardian.com/travel/20...ntjuic-piscina

And you are not far from the more touristy areas of Las Ramblas and the Gothic quarter. Abundance of public transport options around Plaça d'Espanya, and taxis are everywhere and cheap.
