We spent 4 days (19-23 March 2013) in Barcelona Catedral Hotel. Most aspects of this hotel are highly enjoyable. it is modern but in a quiet taste, fantastic location in the center of town : near the city cathedral and plaza catalunya and short walking distance to Bari Gotic, Raval, Eixample and Born districts, 5 minuts walk to the impressive Catalan music palace (where great concerts are offered, we heard Andras Schiff playing 7 Beethoven Sonatas on March 22), and lovely small designers shops in the vicinity, with the world marks on Passeig de Gracia and Diagonal, also walking distance (15-20 minutes...). The staff is small and very helpful, all manage very well in English. The breakfasts are especially nice, with many options and pleasant seating in a room facing the street. Hotel offers lunches but only room service with limited choice at night. Gym is very small but has a nice view and the pool is a lovely addition for summer days. Our room (201) was a bit small but included all that is required for a pleasant stay. Bathroom is lovely and spacious. Wifi is free and we had minor problems with connectivity. Days were a bit cold and heating was not efficient enough, which was taken care by the staff immediately. Our room had a large single bed which we asked for, and a non-smoking room.
