Stayed here in July 2010 and would most definitely return! Wonderful location, minutes to the cathedral and old streets of Barcelona..about 10 minutes to the main shopping area. For a hotel in the centre it was lovely and quiet. We ate in the hotel just once, but the food was delicious if slightly more pricey than you would find in the city. Our room was large (we had a suite with a private terrace backing onto the pool) but there were two adults and a young baby with lots of accompanying paraphernalia and so needed the space! They really welcomed the baby too unlike lots of places that aren't so accommodating! The standard rooms were ample sized too I thought...and most importantly they were clean and fresh! Staff were incredibly friendly and polite! Wonderful place and I would advise anybody to check it out! Don't expect allot from the pool though - it was a lovely place for a drink and a dip but not one to choose if you wanted to keep up a fitness regime! Good length but narrow! Lucky that certainly wasn't top of my agenda!

We found Hotel Barcelona Catedral to be of excellent standard with friendly staff, a well equipped room with all the expected amenities, an unrivalled central location and superb breakfast! It is difficult to see how one could find something better!

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.

Room Tip: Our room was on the front of the hotel and with the window open we could hear the sounds of the city...

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.

Room Tip: Naturally, a non-smoking is a first request in Spain... ask for a larger room with possibly a view t...

The hotel has a very good look - modern, with a comfortable common space in the lobby and good-looking, adequately-sized rooms. The rooms are bright and the beds very comfortable. We did not try the restaurant, as there are lots of places to get breakfast nearby. The desk staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The location is perhaps the best aspect - literally around the corner from the Cathedral, making it very easy for cabs to get close to it even though it is in the Gothic section, and to get back to it from anywhere. Besides being in the Gothic section, it is a short walk to the Metro and to Las Ramblas. The free WiFi was nice, but a little spotty.
