Overall, this hotel is modern, clean, and hip. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a few nights during June of 2009. The rooms were refreshingly large, roomy, and clean. The pool on the roof top was pretty sizable compared to other hotels in Barcelona. The lobby was cool and retro and there were plenty of working computer... More

Three computers in the lobby are free. Fast connection, nice computers, but mostly busy. wifi costs 15 euros a day. The hotel is great otherwise. Nice location, nice rooms, nice pool but cold.

Dear Mr. Motulsky, Thank you very much for your positive comments, such as “a great stay, nice location. Great staff, great hotel”. Your point regarding that it is not clear enough that internet is free in the business centre but that there is a 10,70 € charge for 24 hours WIFI service, has been a good contribution for improvement, and...

When I return to Barcelona, I will make a point of staying at this hotel. Lovely and clean with efficient and extremely polite staff. As I said in the title, nothing was too much trouble - free map, calling a taxi, late check-out, lunch reservation - brilliant! Rooms were clean, cool and spacious. Most importantly, they were extremely quiet which... More

I highly recommend this hotel. It was centrally located yet on a quiet street just off the Square of the Barcelona Catedral. The Hotel was Modern, Trendy, Super Clean and contained all of the necessary amenities. The pool is great and the Staff super helpful! I would certainly stay here again and refer a friend. FIVE STARS!

Had a lovely 3 night stay at catedral. Breakfast was on a terrace outside, not a buffet as expected, but dangerously lovely pastries already on your table, and a free choice of cooked breakfast or continental hams cheese etc. The rooftop pool was a must in the plus 30 degree city heat! Prob could do with more beds? Was bit... More

We just got back from a wonderful one week vacation in Barcelona. The Hotel Barcelona Catedral was the perfect place to stay. It is located on a side street, 1/2 block from the Catedral's very large plaza, which always has something of interest going on. The room was very large, filled with conveniences, a beautiful large bathroom, with a swimming... More

I decided to splurge on a hotel on this trip to Europe rather than go the budget route. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in May. The furnishings in the lobby are modern and bright and the staff is very helpful. The hotel's restuarant was completely dead. They had a wonderful patio area and I think I would... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
