“A perfect hotel for a perfect city....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

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???

Room Tip: You don't need a premium room. The standard rooms are fine.

The hotel was a great experience in the city. Perfect location and so close to La Ramblas! The staff was very friendly and helpful with answering questions. The rooms were very clean & comfortable. A great hotel overall. I would definitely stay here again next time.

This hotel was very clean, quiet and comfortable. It is in a great location across the square from the main cathedral and close to everything. Definitely would stay here if I go back to Barcelona. Nice perk was the free use of bicycles (mtn bikes). Was ready to rent a bike and asked staff for a recommendation of where to rent - no need, bikes are provided free to guests. Roof top pool was great after a day of wandering the streets in the August heat. Never tried the restaurant as we generally stay away from hotel restaurants.

The hotel was lovely and well appointed, but when booking my room, they suggested
I take the hotel breakfast which was very expensive. My son ended up with a stomach
bug and they would not let me take the breakfast off my rate even though it was the following
day.....Like paying a restaurant before you eat. SO I recommend the hotel but suggest you
DO NOT GET THE BREAKFAST. Just order it in the morning if you want it. It's the same price.
They made it seem like I was getting a bargain by booking it in advance, but all I really did was waste 36 Euros on nothing. I suggest you go across the street, spend 1/3 of the price.

We stayed in this excellent hotel in August of 2011. The staff were unusually helpful, making phone calls for us and helping us to locate parking near the cruise terminal. The rooms were clean and very spacious. We didn't eat breakfast but there are plenty of cafes within walking distance for excellent pastries and coffee. The location is exceptional but confused our sat-nav which directed us to the cathedral plaza and then announced "you are now in the vicinity of your hotel" and wouldn't be more explicit. Park in the cathedral carpark. The hotel gets a discounted rate.

This was my daughter's first time in Europe and the first time any of us visited Barcelona. I selected this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. We LOVED It. The location can't be beat, it was clean, quiet, and even had a pool on the roof! The staff was friendly and helpful. I have travelled extensively around the world, and would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Barcelona who wants to be centrally located.

It took no time to get oriented to the maze of alleyways that is the most fascinating characteristic of Barcelona because this hotel is so well located, on a quiet street.. Executive dble room proved to be very spacious,with an enormous bathroom, comfortable bedding and towels. Robes available for a price. Easy walking distance to Placa Catalyuna and La Rambla.Very helpful staff gave us good dining recommendations also within walking distance. Would recommend highly.
