My husband and I stayed in this comfortable and conveniently located hotel in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. We chose this hotel based solely on the reviews we read on tripadvisor. com. We were not disappointed. Just steps from the quiet side street the hotel is located on is the Catedral. From there you can walk or take the... More

Great hotel! We were right next to the roof top pool. Fantastic location - shopping so close by. Rooms very clean and modern. The staff could use a "customer service" course...often not helpful and unfriendly.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of January 2010 on the way down to Nerja in the South. We cannot fault this hotel for a short break with sightseeing in mind. On the Wednesday evening there was a free guided walk of the Gothic quarter which was most interesting and we were taken down small alleys which we... More

As soon as the Taxi pulled into the square in front of Barcelona Cathedral in the Barrio Gotic and stopped, I knew we had a superb location. It is literally 25 yards from the square down a small side street and somehow completely away from any noise. This is the gothic quarter, full of narrow streets so don't book for... More

Our group of 6 adults (40 - 55 years) stayed 1 night pre-cruise and 2 nights post-cruise. The hotel is in a great location just a few steps from the Barcelona Cathedral, resturants, banks and shops and about 10 minutes walk from the Ramblas. The hotel is in a minamilist, modern style with good sized rooms and bathrooms including flat... More

Myself and my partner visited Barcelona in February 2010 and decided to stay in Hotel Catedral on the basis of the reviews we'd read on this site. We were not disappointed. The hotel is located minutes from the Ramblas and is perfectly positioned for exploring the warren of streets that makes up Barcelona's old town. Check-in was quick and efficient... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your support and compliments!!! The Hotel Team was very pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the point of coffee and tea facilities, yes indeed there is a rate, but it is a symbolic one. Only 1.50 € for two teas and two coffees. Once again we would like to encourage... More

I spent hours on Trip Advisor looking for a Barcelona hotel at no more than $200 a night including breakfast that didn't have a lot of negative points such as: too noisy, luggage stolen from lobby, tiny room, uncomfortable bed, bad service, or all of the above. Hotel Barcelona Catedral did not disappoint: we got a not-exactly-spacious, but immaculately modernist... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is not the cheapest accomodation but it was worth the money. It is modern, spotlessly clean with a big comfy bed, heavy drapes, a nice big flat screen TV and a gleeming white bathroom. I had been travelling for months, mostly in hostels and cheaper hotels, and it was like heaven to... More

Perfect location. This hotel really is in the old town and right next to the cathedral. Its location allows you to walk to Rambus( a very busy pedestrian area) . The hotel is directly off a main shopping street. It is only a three minute walk to pick up the hop on hop off bus for sightseeing. The buses are... More
