Stayed at the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya for two nights before going on cruise. Hotel is situated next the Barcelona Sans train station which has a direct link to airport and also metro line into centre of city (10 min). If you are on a short break you can buy a 10 ride metro ticket and share as this is... More

This hotel is located by a big place with alot if traffic and is very noisy. Make sure to ask an upper level on the back side of the hotel. The rooms are clean but very average. The service is ok and the location not centered. I will not return there.

The staff at the hotel were very friendly and accommodating throughout our stay. We opted for the breakfast, which although a little on the expensive side is completely worth it because of the stunning views on the top-floor restaurant where it is served. The rooms were spacious, with beautiful marble floors. The bathroom is one of the biggest ones I've... More

We chose this hotel for our recent visit to Barcelona based on the TripAdvisor reviews and because at the end of our time there we were leaving very early in the morning and wanted something as convenient to the airport as possible. We were also looking for a reasonable price. The Torre Catalunya fit the bill and we were very... More

I come to Barcelona from New York City regularly and this is my favorite hotel! It is soooo clean and the bathrooms are wonderful - enormous and sooooo spotless! If you have a rental car, as we do, the parking is a godsend! It is extremely easy to get to the airport from this hotel by car - you literally... More

Stayed here 5 nights with my son aged 22. We loved it. Happy with location near Sants station, modern, very clean, lovely room and bathroom, very comfortable bed and pillows, lots of TV channels and lots of plugs. I needed the kettle replacing and the staff were excellent...a new one appeared within 10 minutes. Reception staff very friendly. See if... More

This is an ideal hotel to stay in if you are travelling to Barcelona. It's a bit away from the main tourist things but as the train station (Sant) is directly across the road, Barcelona is on your doorstep! It's a 15minute train ride to Barcelona El Prat airport, and about 5 minutes on the train into Placa de Catalunya.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with my girlfriend for a city break. First impressions - looked like a 70's style tower block. Its located next to Sants train station (we struggled to find our way round the Barcelona transport system as none of it made sense hence we walked everywhere). The hotel is located near a big shopping centre, old... More

Don't forget to take you swimming gear with you. The spa area looked amazing and we will definately be using this next time we visit. It is so close to the train and metro station which made visiting the sites so much easier.

We landed in Barcelona on a 10 day trip through the country. The Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya was perfect for our 3 day stay here.we found that beinglocated right beside the Barcelona Sants station was such a bonus. The hop on hop off buses were available just a few 100 yards away. We got lucky on this visit because Plaza... More

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
