The Diagonal Mar/ Forum area where the hotel is located is modern and doesn't really feel like Barcelona at all. However the area is well-connected by metro to the centre of the city (the journey takes about 15 minutes) and the big benefit of the area is the beach which is a short walk from the hotel. There is also a modern-styled park right next to the hotel. If you are looking for another restaurant then there are 2 just near the hotel and more if you carry on walking down towards the beach on Calle Selva de Mar. There is a bank and a café on the next road down and a pharmacy almost on the beach front. The hotel is also within walking distance of the Diagonal Mar shopping complex which has copious shops, restaurants as well as a supermarket and other facilities.
