The Hotel Barcelona Catedral is our choice whenever we come to Barcelona. And we just spent another five nights there. It is a very professional hotel, with a wonderfully helpful front desk staff, and it is perfectly located. It is 1/2 block from the every active, very large catedral plaza, with two very good tapas restaurants, and walking distance to the Ramblas, the Gothic quarter, and the Bourn area. It is also very close to the Jaume 1 metro stop. What's not to like about it???
