I spent a considerable time searching out a good hotel for my wife and myself to stay in for four days and nights. I chose the Barcelona Catedral because it has what I wanted. I wanted the four stars and got it. I wanted the central arae of the city and got it. Barcelona is a big place yet quite compact and here in the Barri Gotic area you are very close ot everything. There are buses, the Metro, and so many lanes to walk around. This hotel is really by the Cathedral yet in a side road and very quiet. We took the A2 Aerobus from the airport and got off at Placa Catalunya where its only a 2 or 300 metre walk to the hotel. It cost 5 euro.90 each oneway. Only took 20 minutes.The rooms are just what you need for comfort with big beds and a great bathroom with all the clean towels and hot water and gels and shampoos you could wish for.
The guys at the reception are just the best. No matter what you require or want to know, they are right on it. Good english as well.
We opted for breakfast and that was lovely. Good bread, hot and cold dishes, loads of tea and coffee and juice,just right to set you up for a days walking and sightseeing.Everything is cooked to order so there is nothing of the fast food factor with everything lying in its own juices for hours.
We did look at the pool area although it was March and I'm sure a bit cold to dip ones feet into but I'm sure it will be great in the summer after all the heat and clamour of the city. All in all, an extremely wonderful and enjoyable city and hotel.
Yes, we wil return.
