“Great food, Average rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We were here for 3 nights and had a few meals here too. The meals were great and I really enjoyed the breakfast service. The one annoyance was that were were 3 adults to a room and the put the third in a wheelie cot. Bit cramped. They could have done better.

We've just returned from this hotel after a short break in Barcelona to celebrate my wife's birthday. Having not been to Barcelona since they held their Olympics back in 1992, I was a little unsure of where to book. Having reviewed other peoples impressions I booked this hoping I'd made the correct decision. I needn't have worried. This is a beautiful modern boutique hotel in the old Barri Gotic yards from the famous Catedral (free entry), fantastic and friendly staff and they serve a very large and tasty breakfast.

We did all the normal touristy stuff and due to it's ideal location this is a very central hotel with the Barcelona open top bus stopping very conveniently 100 yards away. This meant we could see all the attractions either on foot or using the bus and still be back for a few hours sunbathing in the afternoon on their roof top terrace and swimming pool, before venturing out again in the evening for more exploring and an evening meal. Two key foodie stops very close by are the Vietnamese restaurant/bar 'Bun Bô' literally opposite, which I will review separately and the Italian style chocolate/gelato/pastry shop, again a few yards from the hotel heading towards the Catedral square.

You will not be disappointed, we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room and were allocated a third floor room which was south facing and were not...

Stayed here Oct 21-24 2014. Arrived early to find room was ready. Great start. Room very clean and comfortable. Perfect for our 3 night stay. Reception staff excellent, offering advice on great restaurants to eat in that served local catalan food. Hotel located right by cathedral and close to Las Ramblas and Place Catalunya, where bus stops are found to and from the airport. Cost 5.90 each from airport to here. Much better than expensive taxi rides.. Only 5 minutes walk to hotel from bus stop.
Hotel has a rooftop pool which is excellent to relax by after a long days walking before an evening meal.
Would recommend this hotel for a great break in Barcelona.

This was our second trip to Barcelona and we stayed at the hotel for three evenings. The hotel is excellently located opposite the Cathedral and in the heart of the Barri Gotic with many of Barcelonas attractions on the doorstep. Rooms are large, comfortable and clean with a good sized bathroom and staff are friendly and helpful. We did not eat at the hotel as there are a range of places available locally for breakfast. The hotel has a rooftop pool which, whilst not large, does provide a spot for sunbathing.

I just want to add my glowing review to the other glowing reviews of this great hotel located in the Old City section of Barcelona.
The hotel is just 8 years old following the conversion of an old parking garage into the current hotel. The amenities such as the bath, shower, etc are therefore almost brand new and clean and modern. The beds are confortable.

Please note there is only one flaw, little or no drawer space otherwise the rooms are well appointed and conformable. The hotel staff told me that this flaw may well be corrected as the rooms are to be updated again in the coming year.

Location Location Location, Trust me this hotel's location is perfect. Every site and sound in the old section is just a short to medium walk away. La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's masterpiece cathedral is not far by bus or cab. The Picasso Museum is almost right around the corner. Good restaurants abound with great menu choices and variety are close by close by. You could not have a better location.

The hotel staff from top to bottom is at your beck and call with good resteurent and sites to see recommendations. The service and treatment of you as a guest could not be better.

The hotel has a restaurant and the breakfasts and lunches are not to be beaten. The food is delish and served with the best European style and grace.

Bottom line, unless you need 4 star luxury the Hotel Barcelona Catedral should not be missed when you next vist Barcelona.

A great location for The Gothic Area, an easy 5 minute stroll to Las Ramblas and plenty of bars and restaurants in the area.
The staff were very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and booked them on our behalf.
The room was large, extremely clean and had air conditioning.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.
