“Glad We Stayed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

We stayed in May 2011. Upon arrival from US mid morning, our room wasn't available (no surprise) but they offered to store our bags and the use of a large restroom on the lower level. Within 15 minutes we were walking around Barcelona. Excellent reception. When we returned mid-afternoon our room was ready.

The room was great. Plenty of space, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. Very clean.

Breakfast was good and convenient but a bit expensive for what you get. Not sure I would get it again but the convenience was nice.

As others have reviewed, there is free internet terminals in the lobby. The pay for wireless (10 Euro/day) is spotty.

Great location to visit Barcelona and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. A real gem.

Just back from a three night stay at the Hotel Barcelona Catedral. We were three women travelling and had booked a triple room - basically a corner double room with an extra fold down bed. The room was a good size & had plenty of wardrobe space for three women - about a dozen hangers. The room was spotless as was the entire hotel. The bathroom was lovely and toiletries updated daily.
Check in and out was quick & efficient. We had not booked breakfast (from previous reviews it seemed to be over priced) and we did not eat in the hotel. During our stay we did not see anyone eating in the evening. The bar area is relatively small but there are large stylish patio lounge areas which are pleasant if weather allows. There is a nice pool on the roof but weather unfortunately was not warm enough for us to use it but the area was nice & again spotless. There were a number of sun loungers there - around a dozen I would say. There are many restaurants within a short walking distance of the hotel & a lovely pastry shop for breakfast on the square next to the hotel.
The hotel is in an excellent location in the Bari Gotic, a short stroll from Las Ramblas. The Cathedral is right next door. The Barcelona hop on bus tour has a stop within 2 minutes from the hotel and is a relatively quiet stop that gets you on the bus before the queues at Placa de Catalunya which was a bit of a bonus.
I would recommend this hotel due its location & the facilities.

Service was wonderful. When we arrived that morning before a room was available, they offered to keep our bags so we could go out and see the city. It was the perfect location and we walked to everything that we wanted to see! It was very clean and the restaurant was actually very good, too! I recommend putting on something nice and eat here at least once!

We really liked the location of the hotel which was very near to las Ramblas. The hotel was nice and clean with lovely breakfast and very polite and helpful members of staff.
We are definitely going back.

Just spent a week at this hotel in Barcelona for our 25th wedding anniversary. The hotel is in a great location and you can walk to almost everything you want to see in Barcelona, including Las Ramblas, shopping, restaurants, etc. The staff was knowledgable, friendly, helpful, and gave great suggestions for restaurants, tours, and more. Our only complaint was that the bed was very firm, but with some well-adjusted pillows and a bit of motrin, we slept fine...especially after walking around all day. They have free internet in the lobby which was a little slow, but we were able to check emails and Facebook and browse the web whenever we wanted to. I would definitely return to this hotel.

Recently stayed five nights at the Barcelona Cathedral Hotel and we enjoyed our stay. I agree with others when they stated that the breakfast was over-priced, we had one breakfast - two fried eggs (served in the small skillet they were cooked on, with two rashers one small tomato and one mushroom piled on top) - but you don't have to eat there, plenty of places nearby. The hotel was very clean and staff who a very willing to help, Wi-Fi doesn't work in the upper rooms, but there are free to use computers off the lobby downstairs. Would certainly recommend it for its location.

Friendly staff at a great location. A nice hotel close to a market and next to the Barcelona Cathedral and in the historic Gothic area. The evening tour offered by the hotel is a really nice touch and take it in if you can.
