I just spent a weekend in Hotel Catalonia Diagonal and I'm very happy about this place. It is very well located, has pleasant staff and very good breakfast. Also quite unusually for a hotel downtown it has a parking. I also liked that it had no carpets on corridors and in rooms which for me means the place can be... More

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your kind comments about our hotel. It is true that it is difficult to find hotels in city centre with parking-garage in the same building. All our rooms floor are parquet indeed. Looking forward to see you again More

Great location. Rooms could be bigger. Good breakfast. Enjoyed it. We would stay there again should we visit Barcelona in the future. With our room on the first floor it was very convenient especially if the elevator was crowded.

We stayed in this hotel on a group tour, and were not at all pleased with the condition of the common areas (which we had to use because the rooms were so small, dark, and uncomfortable), the 18 euro breakfast (which overpriced and not well staffed), or the constant rumble of the subway trains. I could go on, but will... More

I was a little apprehensive after reading some negative reviews but we were quite happy. This is not a luxury hotel but then for £75 a night you can't complain. The rambles is a good 20 min walk but the main attractions are close. Also a good choice of shops and restaurants on your doorstep. Spotlessly clean beds and bathroom.... More

Location: Central, close to several metro stops and within walking distance of "La Pedrera". Other comments: Baby friendly. Breakfast: Expensive for 16 euro per person. We had an offer from the restaurant for 10, which was still a bit overpriced. WIFI: A bit dodgy, especially by Mac kept giving warnings that the security certificate does not match. I am sure...

The Catalonia Diagonal Centro Hotel is well situated and reasonably priced. The hotel on Carrer de Balmes is near two metro stations (Provenca on Balmes, Diagonal on Ramblas de Catalonia), and many good restaurant choices within a one-mile radius. There are some reasonably priced restaurants along Carrer de Rosello. For lower-priced, lively choices, take a short walk up to Gracia... More
