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...

We stayed for 6 nights in July in a double room. The room was adequate for our purposes, quiet and reasonably priced at about 105 euros/ night...for Barcelona. Location was good. Close to Metro stations and walking distance to many restaurants providing a range of options for dining. A/C and WiFi worked well. Housekeeping was very good except for one... More

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

Having booked through a travel agency and requesting 4 star hotels, we were sorely disappointed in this hotel. It is in need of a rennovation/facelift. There are other Catalonia properties in Barcelona that were much better. The housekeeping service did not clean properly and the room (305) was very dusty and the overall room was very gloomy in appearance.

Dear Guests, The same as you, we are dissapointed to know that you didn't like the room. Would you have asked for another room, we would have changed you. We have checked the room and we have made some maintenance works in order to keep it properly. The room facing the street with its balcony is nice and well accepted.... More

First time in Barcelona, arrived at the hotel - tried to check-in, receptionist barely spoke English. I know that it isn't a pre-requisite for hotel receptionists in Spain to speak English, however, we're talking about a city which hosts 8 million tourists a year - basic understand should be a minimum. The room was nice and clean, accommodation staff did... More

Dear sir, Thank you for your comments about our hotel. Despite that location is one of our strengths, our reception team is arguably the best of our assets. All of them speak english correctly, so I think you were attended by a woman doing a school practices. However she was only 5 hours in the morning and there was always... More

I stayed for a week in this hotel which is very centrally located. The location, in effect, is its biggest plus. The staff at the reception were quite helpful and kind, and the wifi is working fine. Everything else is just "passable". I had a room overlooking a dark internal courtyard, so that I had to keep the light on,... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your comments about our hotel. It is a pity that you didn't ask for changing room if you need to have more light and staying for 1 week, as we have rooms at the front of the hotel with light and small balcony.
