The title sums it up. But the location is superb. Also the gym is rather poorly equipped. But staff could not be more helpful. Paid about 120 Euros per night, which seems fair all-in-all - again, nostly because of the location and the friendly folks.

We ended paying extra 50£ because of their mistakes in booking and broken promises. I good location but that's about it. Very small rooms and you can literally hear footsteeps of neighbers all the time and obviously all other activites they do as well so don't expect any sleep.

Great location! Loved exploring all the alleyways in the Gothic quarter. Very clean hotel. Polite and helpful staff. Be aware! There are rooms without windows and/or balconies, we opted to pay extra for air! The breakfast buffet has a bit of everything for everyone. The pool on the roof is adequate, not heated.

I went back to the Catalonia Avinyo Hotel recently, just for one night during a business trip. Again I chose this hotel because of its location in the "Bari Gotico" which I really like. This time I managed to get a room with a balcony. The room was small (as most rooms in this hotel) but it was nice to... More

We spent here three nights and slept better than in any other hotel before: excellant beds, worring air-condition, quiet room. No view, but the great location, swimming pool on the roof and friendly staff made this our favourite hotel in Barcelona!

We spent three nights in this hotel and found it to be modern, clean and run by very friendly staff. The location is in the Gothic quarter and surrounded by small alleyways and squares. La Rambla is only a few minutes walk away and another 5 minutes to the port. We found the hotel to be very reasonably priced, about... More

Hotel Avinyo is in an excellent position. The reception staff are extremely helpful, suggesting places to eat and noting them on the map to help with navigation around this busy city. Breakfast was terrific and very reasonably priced. Suggest you definitely try it! Was a little noisy at night but not so that you were unable to sleep.

The best part of this hotel is the location. Situated in the Gothic Quarter it is surrounded by beautiful old buildings and narrow cobbled streets. It is walking distance to many awesome bars and restaurants, and also just a short walk to the metro. The hotel itself is lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were nice,...

Hotel Catalonia Avinyo is a great little hotel in the heart of Barcelona's old city. A short walk from all the action at La Rambla, the Marina and, of course, the beach, the hotel is immediately surrounded by beautiful restaurants, squares and gardens. It's also a 2 minute walk from Travel Bar, where all the free walking tours of the... More

The hotel is bad. Even if we do not mind the prison-like, depressing decoration (gray walls and draperies, industrial like furniture, linoleum floors), there is nothing to enjoy. Our room (216) was so small that should be appropriate for single, not double occupancy. THERE IS NO CLOSET, JUST A RACK with a 12 cm bar and 3 hangers. We stayed... More

Dear guest, we regret that your stay was not to your liking. According to our work processes, where we offer an upgrade room, we let the guest sees the room before hiring. In your case it was, and you view the room before accepting it and changed your reserve to upgrade. The modus operandi of the receptionist believe it was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
