I stayed at H10 Marina Barcelona for two nights in February, after getting a great deal for $88/night (regular price is 88/night). The room was clean and very spacious with large windows overlooking Barcelona. There was a king sized bed with bedside iPod dock, and a convertible sofa bed which means the room can sleep 4 comfortably. There is free WiFi available in the room, and a built-in North American 120V plug in the bathroom. The room also has a large LCD TV, an electronic safe and a stocked mini fridge ($).

There's a free gym in the hotel which I didn't go to, but the outdoor pool has a great view of the city, as well as an attached bar (wasn't open when I was there). The pool was quite cold in February, but the hotel also had a heated pool which they charged 16/day for (!!!). The hotel breakfast buffet is a great option with a wide variety of food, costing 12.

The location of H10 Marina Barcelona is in a quiet area of Sant Marti near the Marina. While there wasn't much going on in the immediate vicinity, there is plenty to do within walking distance and the Bogatell metro station is only 5 minutes away. The Barcelona Zoo and Parliament of Catalonia are less than a kilometer away, and the Arc de Triomf is about 1km away. The Barcelona Aquarium is a little further, but still a nice walk along the water. Nearby nightlife includes the famous Razzmataz nightclub which is less than a ten minute walk from the H10 hotel.

Overall, the H10 Marina Barcelona is a good option and worth the money, though a bit pricey if you are on a tight budget. If you can split the rate among a few people the price will be very attractive when you consider the quality and convenient location.
