Excellent, friendly check in. Stored our luggage until check in time. Very large corner room with fantastic views. Clean and very well appointed room with fridge and ice machine on corridor. Very large comfy bed with loads of pillows. Located adjacent to Sants station, direct line to airport and centre of city. Tourist bus stops a few minutes walk away.... More

My wife and I just returned from our trip to Spain which ended in Barcelona where we spent three nights at the Gran Torre Catalunya. My primary reason for choosing this hotel was its proximity to Barcelona Sants train station since our flight home left the airport at 7am along with the many positive reports on TripAdvisor. When you leave... More

We stayed at the Hotel from 25th To 28th July to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. I read about upgrading the room on Trip Advisor so we did so, and I have to say it is well worth it. We had room 1919 & the view was fantastic. The Hotel is perfectly positioned for either the Metro or Bus tours,... More

The Gran Torre Catalunya was great. Our room was very clean and spacious. We were nervous that it would be loud as it overlooks a busy street, but there were no issues. The staff was very friendly, giving us a map and answering all of our questions about what to do/ how to get everywhere. Also free wifi in the... More

This hotel is good but not fantastic. IMHO it's overrated and doesn't deserve its 4*s: room and bathroom are old fashioned (BTW I saw again after long a CRT TV and a cassette player!), just clean (not gleaming as they'd be) and showing some maintenance issues (for example, we had to block the window with a paper wedge, but we...

The Hotel is directly opposite the train station ('Barna Sants' stop that you can get on from inside the airport) so it's a cheap and easy commute from the airport. You can purchase a '10 ride pass' for 10.50EUR which two people could also use to get 5 rides each. The tickets can be used on the Metro and main... More

Location: Beside the main Sants train station and also the main bus station for transfers to Reus airport (ryanair). taxi to port Olympic around euro 11/12. Room: I had a really large room, no view, facing another hotel, big shower/bath, double sinks. Loads of wardrobe space, ironing board, free safe. I would complain about the lack of sockets beside the... More

This hotel has good and bad sides... Good: -------- - room size - comfort - good beds, bath tub and additional shower, two wash basins - central location, near main station (Barcelona Sants) - great views (only from north side rooms!) - clean - The staff is friendly and *tries* to be helpful, but often without success, which I think...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Possibly the most comfortable 4*S hotel in Barcelona, this tower offers stunning panoramic views across the city and is strategically located right next to Sants Railway Station - a major transportation intersection of Barcelona - meaning, it is only a short ride from the city center and the beach. It is also near the famous Olympic area of Montjuic and a 5-minute walk from the Fira exhibition grounds, Placa Espanya and the beautiful Arenas shopping and leisure center. Its 272 spacious rooms are the largest of their category in Barcelona, all exterior-facing and come with ample bathrooms with a bath and a shower. It's the limited number of rooms per floor, the excellent soundproofing, the large beds and the natural daylight entering each room through the wide windows that allow us to offer you a 100% comfortable stay and restful nights. Here is a little tip: Rooms from the 12th floor up have excellent panoramas of Barcelona. And of course, there is the famous "Restaurante Visual" on the 23rd floor - the highest restaurant in the city, offering outstanding contemporary cuisine with unparalleled 360° views. ... more   less
