“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in this hotel earlier this week and really enjoyed it. We had two rooms on the fourth floor. The hotel is modern, clean and has a terrific location, five minutes walk from Las Ramblas and in the centre of the Gothic area, which is full of great restaurants, bars and sites of historical interest. The hotel itself is modern, clean and comfortable. The staff is cheerful and very helpful. We had breakfast every morning which was delicious, with hot and cold options and plenty of bread and pastries. The pool area is small, but has adequate space for guests and we spent much of our time relaxing there. The bar staff can bring drinks up to you at the pool if required.
Overall, a great choice.

The good and bad thing about this hotel is that it is in a good location. It is right off the plaza in front of the cathedral and it is within walking distance from many good restaurants and city sights. It is clean and bright with an extremely helpful front desk staff. The bad thing is that it is off the plaza in front of the cathedral. While we were in Barcelona in August, the plaza had a stage set up and there was loud music being played until the wee hours of the morning. Luckily, the music did not disturb us with the windows closed and the AC on. The staff offered to change our room but it was not necessary. So, if you are sensitive to noise, get a room that is not facing the street. Also, the breakfast was delicious.

This is a great hotel in a great location in the heart of the Eixample area.
Quite a busy extravagant place, very particular for the LGBT traveller....
Definitely recommend a stay at this hotel.
Nice bar on roof with amazing city views.

Visited this hotel August, it is situated just up from the Cathedral, and a perfect spot for staying in the gothic quarter, the facade fits in with the area, but contemporary inside. Although this hotel is right in the centre, found it nice and tranquil, and very up to date inside. We stayed in a room with a terrace, which was private, and could step out of it to pool area. Also overlooked the top of the cathedral at the back. The room was spacious and very clean with all facilities. We could not have been better positioned as this is near all the sights, a short walk from beach, rambles and in the gothic shopping area. Just a short walk from the main bus stop from Barcelona airport, took us 5 mins to walk to hotel from stop, so this made it ideal for getting too and from airport, caught bus just outside airport, 35 mins then at hotel, perfect. Would strongly recommend this hotel. The staff very very friendly and helpful. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful, will definitely come back to this hotel again if visit Barcelona again.

Room Tip: We chose a room at the back, very peaceful.

We stayed at the Hotel Barcelona Catedral at the beginning of July 2014 for 3 nights. Overall, we had a good experience. We arrived late the first night-- and the only room available was room 118 (just adjacent to the elevator). It was a relatively large room with a large handicapped bathroom. The downside was the door to the hotel room could not be closed completely. I am not sure why exactly but unfortunately we heard all of the hallway noise-- including all the people who came in and out of the elevator (with more traffic starting at 5am). We even heard small rustling sounds including the sound of the housekeeper snapping open a plastic bag. That night brought very poor sleep because of the constant noise. We complained the next morning and were moved to a much quieter room on the same level-- far away from the elevator (as well as a door that was able to close completely). The room and bathroom here too were of nice size and clean. There was a nice enclosed area for clothes and suitcase (we were traveling with two small suitcases which fit in the area easily).

The location was great-- right next to the old cathedral and basically just a few minutes from the Ramblas. Also relatively close was a really great restaurant (Koy Shunka).

Room Tip: Avoid room 118!

A great hotel in the heart of Barcelona placed in a little quiet street.
Lovely rooms, very clean, decorated with modern taste.
Friendly and discreet staff, perfect service.
Pool is amazing, but try to avoid travel in august because noisy childs are playing in it, no place to swim peacefully.
I would have appreciate free bottles of water in rooms.
Drinks are also expensive inside hotel, half cheaper in the streets around.
I would have also appreciate more vegan choices for breakfast, but i was happy to find soy milk.
But that's only very little disappointments, hotel was great to resume.

Green Features: Lot of vegan restaurants around which were very good : Vegetalia, Veggie Garden, Biocenter. Mojito with organic rhum at Biocenter is just delicious...

This was a fab hotel. You were made to feel special from the moment you arrived. The service was faultless. Drinks were brought to your table with a smile and breakfast was beautiful. The staff always said hello and made you feel as if nothing was too much.
Spotlessly clean rooms, which were cleaned thoroughly everyday. Beds were extremely comfortable.
You will need bottled water for your room for coffee. If you have a sensitive tum.
So close to the shops and the beach! Would stay again in a heart beat! Thank you to all the staff!

Room Tip: The triple room was very spacious! Free wifi for the whole trip fab with a teenager. Lovely pool on...
