The location of this hotel was amazing! El Born is a great area full of restaurants and bars on a maze of streets- wonderful for walking around. Most other areas of the city that we visited were within walking distance or an easy metro ride away, yet the hotel itself was away from all of the hubbub. (The Arch de... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Rooms very comfy, big bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Aircon was great. Room was quiet. Breakfast was good value and high quality. Free wifi. Nice location. Rooftop is a good place for a drink or a relax but the pool is tiny. Pool towels are provided.

Location was perfect, next to the metro and bus stop, close to "Parc de la Ciutadella" and about 1km walk to La Rambla. Our room was facing to inner yard, so there was no view. Bathroom was ok, bathtub had some permanent dirt, so didn't want to take a bath. Room was next to the elevator and we could hear... More

We had a hard time choosing our hotel as we're very picky on such things. Sleep quality and convenience are a top priority for us in such a vacation since we tend to walk a lot. In terms of location, it was actually quite good. We chose this hotel because of the attractive price and good reviews, knowing it's a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We thought it was ok, but wouldn't choose to stay here again. The location was good and central. However, it did feel a little unsafe around the hotel. It’s on quite a narrow back road. We were very cautious with our valuables. Our welcome at the hotel wasn't very... More

Loved everything about this hotel from the staff to the rooftop pool and patio. Great neighbourhood that had lots of cafes and restaurants and was within walking distance of Ramblas. Our room wasn't street facing, but was very quiet and great for sleeping after a long day of walking and discovering the area. Would stay with the Hotel Catalonia group... More

Rooms are spacious enough. Location is perfect. This Hotel is very close to both "Parc de la Ciutadella" and the "Gothic Quarter". The most exciting thing of this Hotel is its lovely pool on top of the building. What fails is that breakfast was a little bit simple.
