We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and it was ideal. Within walking distance of Bari Gotic, La Rambla, Plaza Catalunya, Barceloneta, and even Sagrada Familia. The Arc de Triomphe is next door and leads down to a nice park. The room was clean and ideal for our stay; great breakfast selection, and many restaurants in the neighbourhood. The... More

Stayed at Catalonia Born in may2014 for 3 nights. The service was great and was close to a beautiful park and handy to all the attractions of Barcelona. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the street, there was a little bit of noise from across the bar and restaurant across the street, did not bother us too much. The... More

nice hotel, excellent location, next to the Arch the Triumph or walking distance to the sightseeing aereas. Large bathroom and shower, liked that. Beds very good, but third bed in room for kid was average. Room for three a bit small for two ok. Nice small pool at the top of the hotel. Supermarkets nearby, great breakfast location across street... More

Stayed at the Catalonia Born which is in an excellent location and really enjoyed the experience. The room was clean and a good size and on the ground floor. Breakfast was really good and very well organised with lots of choice. Went up to the pool which is only tiny but a lovely place to sit and had poolside drinks... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location and the pool. It's pretty hard to find a good quality hotel for a decent price in Barcelona during July, so this hotel was a good find. The rooms are a good size, we had a little balcony overlooking the street and it was always clean with a fresh bottle of... More

Good location. Walking distance to La rambla, beach or to metro. The pool was very small, the pictures don't really show how small it was, but it was good to have for cooling off. Internet worked fine, so the connection speed depends on your room location. Nothing really special about this hotel: breakfasts were ok, rooms were ok, the service... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for four nights and we were very happy. The location is fantastic, just step outside and you are in walking distance of the nicest area in Barcelona. Metro station is nearby as well. The pool was small but nice for a cool off. Staff was very friendly and helpful! Would recommend to anyone.

My boyfriend and I stayed here from Wednesday to Saturday last week and we couldn't have asked for more- super clean hotel in the perfect location!

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
