“Not wrth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Great location, lousy service. Rooms are small, cleaning service not on time, slowest internet connection I have ever seen, does not look like they want to host you. I stayed in two different hotels in the same area, both were much better.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

Location is pretty good. Room is the terrible. No air-condition, no window: dark and hot. Breakfast is good. Hotel is very close to metro L3 and La Rambla. Hotel provides free Wi-Fi access with pretty good speed.

Located just a few meters from the Plaza Catalonia which is the city center and where the Ramblas famous avenue starts. Near Metro station servicing several lines.
Comfortable rooms, we were three of us at the room and it was rather spacios. Our room was rennovated and nice. View was to the internal courtyard were the pool is located, but the pool is covered in this season.
Free Wifi, although reception in the room was rather weak and we need to find the right spot in the room to receive it.
Our deal included the breakfast buffet which was really great - eggs, meats, cheese, sandwiches, pastries, fruit, ....
Staff was friendly.

Definitely recommend as a great base for a Barcelona viist due to great locatton, nice room and rich breakfast.

This is a terrific hotel. Clean, friendly, helpful staff, lovely bedrooms which were exceptionally quiet. Our room overlooked the street below which is a side street to the Place de Catalunya, The side street is very quiet, but just a few metres away, and you're in the middle of the busy Place de Catalunya. The air bus stops here every 20 minutes, no probs taking the bus from and to the airport - it couldn't be easier. The start of La Rambla is off this centre. The bedrooms have double doors, so you don't hear any noise from the lifts or people using the hotel. There was no kettle in the room, but we brought our own travel one and there is a small grocery shop round the corner. The lounge upstairs lacked personality, so we only went there once. I would return to this hotel and recommend it to my friends

Catalonia Plaza Cataluna is centrally located a stone throw away from Placa de Catalunya. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of stores and restaurants and within walking distance to tourist attractions and public transport.

Upon arrival (airport), consider taking the A1 airport bus for EUR 5.90 which stops on Placa Catalunya and walk across to the hotel. This is much cheaper than a taxi.

The hotel is quite old but by no means run down. The character that comes with older buildings/ interiors can be quite appealing as is the case here.

The staff were professional and helpful.

I stayed in a large room on the 7th floor with a large balcony. The linen and towels were acceptable. The bed perfectly fine. The bath is small with an overhead shower which serves its purpose. The room has a television with a variety of channels, most in Spanish/ Catalan. The safe in the room is very old. One has to get a lock and key from reception and pay a EUR40 fine should you lose the key. Having to go back down to reception after checking in to get the lock was inconvenient. It would be great if the hotel would invest in standard digital safes sparing guests this minor hassle.

Breakfast hit the spot with a good selection of tasty food on offer.

All in all I had a pleasant stay at a reasonable price.

For those preferring contemporary interiors consider Olivia Plaza hotel or Hotel Catalonia Catedral . These hotels are in walking distance from each other and in a similar price class – the latter two being slightly more expensive

Good size room, clean, business standard, very satisfied compared to the price. Unbeatable location.

Only negative point is the Internet. Very poor service, impossible to use skype or similar for business calls.
