If you are looking for a quiet and nice place to stay, this is your hotel. It is situated near 'Arc del Triomf' monument, in the Born neighbourhood, a trendy and quiet area with not too many tourists, which we appreciated. Rooms are comfortable, without luxury but warm and clean. The service are also good. Excellent restaurants surrounding this area.... More

Stayed there with my friend. Breakfast was good, internet free and very fast, staff at reception very friendly and helpful. Places for visiting were at walking distance. This hotel was really good value for money. If come back to Barcelona, this hotel will be in top list for staying.

Originally we had a room at the front of the building which was noisy. It was also a smoking room and we had requested a non smoking. We spoke to the management who arranged for us to have another room. We did not book this room until the night before we arrived so we did not expect to get our... More

I visit catalonia for new year with my girlfriend. Hotel was solid, location and staff were great. Room was ok for a place to sleep but nothing special. I wasnt happy about this hotel because the air condition didnt cool the room (during the winter period hotel blocks the cooling and only option you have is heating). I underestand that... More

We've just come back from a wonderful 7 night stay in Barcelona. The Catalonia Born was a great choice of hotel for us as it was within walking distance of the many things we wanted to see and do in Barcelona, and for those places that were a bit further afield there was a metro station nearby (Arc de Triomf)....

We had a nice large room with a large terrace with shower, lounge chairs, patio table/chairs. We had no noise issues at all, and the bed was very comfortable. We had free wifi and received tickets for a couple of drinks in the bar there. Didn't pay for the breakfast, pricey. Great location, picasso museum minutes away, great tapas bars... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
