“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Just returned from first trip to this wonderful city. After much research I booked this hotel and I'm so pleased I did! What an incredible location - quietly situated just off the Cathedral square but in the middle of everything - nowhere seemed that far even though the city is HUGE. I normally go for old buildings with a bit of character but this hotel, although modern, is chic, stylish and has a lovely restfull ambiance. Really glad we opted to have breakfast - yes there are some cafes very close by but sitting in the lovely dining area was a relaxing way to start the day - fresh fruit salads, carafes of squeezed OJ, wonderful pastries and hot dishes cooked to order (included in price) We didnt need lunch after this so good value...! All the staff here were friendly, helpful and the twin room we had was spacious and extremely comfortable. Can't WAIT to return...

Room Tip: Due to quiet street I think all the rooms would be fine although I did request the usual of not bein...

Perfect location next to the Cathedral and a few minutes walk to the main shopping and a varied selection of restaurants. Peaceful at night as the area is free from the noise of traffic etc.
Hotel is very clean, good comfy beds, plenty of hot water, toiletries, free wifi with good connection.

We stayed at the Hotel Barcelona Catedral for 4 nights in early February.

The main draw of the hotel is its location, right next to Placa Catedral in the old Barri Gotic.

The hotel is a new building. The rooms are nice but very small (there is not even a chair to sit on apart from the one at the writing desk). The bathroom is proportionately to the room quite big. The shower is excellent. The rooms are reasonably soundproof. However, in our room, situated on the 3rd floor on the streetside, we were woken up by rowdy revellers in the middle of the night from down below on the street. When we checked into the hotel we had asked for a room on the internal patio but were told that they had all been booked already.

There is a nice small pool on the roofdeck but we could not use it as it is not heated.

We also didn't take the hotel buffet breakfast as we had read in reviews from other travellers that it is not worth its cost. There are however plenty of excellent Catalan and Spanish breakfast availabilities in the immediate neighbourhood.

Service was really good, especially from the staff at the reception which were really very kind and helpful.

Great location, beautiful scenery surrounding in the gothic area! Handy stop outside for the bus tours which I would highly recommend for a city break as you get to see everything.

The rooms are nice and spacious and the bathroom Is big and kept very clean on a daily basis! Rooms even contain an iPod dock station to listen to music!

Highly recommended and already looking to return in the summer months and stay here!

We loved our first visit to Barcelona and we think this hotel is a good choice especially for the central location. Staff was very helpfull and the hotel was nice. We liked the decorations in the room although we spent little time in as we explored a lot the city. We will return.

We went to Barcelona for the Christmas markets, which turned out to be disappointing compared to France, Germany & Belgium.
The hotel itself was very central and easy to find. The rooms were of a good size, modern and the staff were very helpful. We did not try the bar or restaurant, so cannot comment on them. But if you want a cheap breakfast pop next door the patisserie and pick four danish pastries for 5 euro.
