Just got back from a 2 night stay at this lovely hotel - and will definitely be back! The hotel is in a great location. Within walking distance of all the main attractions, plenty of nice places to eat and good transport links. The rooms were nice, bathrooms great and everything spotlessly clean. The staff were also very friendly and helped us out answering many questions. Definitely get the breakfast, it’s well worth it. And the hotel bar is worth a drink too.

What a find! This hotel is fantastic in every aspect. We arrived at 08.30 having had a very early start. As we got out of the taxi a member of staff came out to help us with our luggage. The reception staff were excellent, extremely professional and helpful. They advised that our room was available, which was music to our ears, thank you!!! The room itself was beautiful, modern, spacious and with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was of an equally high standard with beautiful towles and all areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean.

The hotel itself is in a great location, just next to the Cathedral and a short walk to Las Ramblas, and everything else Barcelona has to offer. It's just a short walk (5 mins) from where you can catch the Aerobus to / from the airport.

Breakfast was the best I have had in a hotel in a long time! EVERYTHING was fresh and beautifully presented. Once you sat down a tray was brought to your table which was laid out with a basket of freshly cooked bread rolls, a basket of pastries, a bowl of freshly prepared fruit (pineapple, grapes, orange, kiwi, melon), a carafe of freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, yogurt, cake, jam. In addition you could choose anything from the menu. I chose Spanish omelette which was delicious and my husband chose scrambled eggs. These were freshly prepared and hadn't been sat on the usual hotel buffet turning into a solid mass, they were delicious!

There was a walking tour available via the hotel which lasted just over an hour and showed you round the local area. This was really interesting and is definitely worth an hour of your time. Thank you for this is was really enjoyable!

Although we didn't use the pool we went up to the roof to have a look. It would be the perfect place to get away from it all and have a chill out on a hot day.

All in all a wonderful stay which we could not fault. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return! Thank you to all the staff, you were very helpful throughout our stay.

Stayed here in November for my 40th Birthday and all I can say is what an amazing hotel. The location is perfect, its right around the corner from the beautiful cathedral and just a 5 minute walk from La Rambles.Its really central to everything. The hotel itself is very modern and the rooms are well equipped and very spacious. The bathroom was gorgeous and very modern.Its easy to get to from the airport we got the aerobus right outside the airport I think it was bus A2 we got a return ticket which was around 20 euros for 2 people and this took us straight to the centre of town, we got off walked towards the cathedral which took us 5 minutes and then we were at the hotel, it was very easy. I would 100% recommend this hotel it was perfect in everyway and when we go back to Barcelona we will definitely be staying here.

We extend our satay To 5 nights. Excellent Location and superb staf.. Very friendly and extremely helpful.. Honastly the staf who make this hotel worth the stay. Although, it's very clean and they are generous with toiletries and the complementary water, tea and coffee. Very quite!
Stayed in room 318, the bathroom needs some maintenance, though I loved the heated mirrors..
Great windows black outs. The beds are a bit hard and not stationary.
Free wifi, the drow back was, you have to re connect every time you come back to hotel.

The desk staff are very helpful. The room is attractive and very well presented, and there were no issues with the wi-fi. Best of all is the wonderful position of the hotel opposite the cathedral in the Barri Gòtic.

Breakfast is high-quality, but €18.50 plus taxes is a high price.

Our room looked out on the side street, where some building work was going on. Every morning at 8am a pneumatic drill started hammering away and continued through working hours. Not the hotel's responsibility of course, but it did detract from our stay.

I brought a small group of four from Hawaii to Barcelona for four days after a cruise. I'd been to Barcelona before and enjoyed staying in L'Eixample last time, but wanted something more in the Casco Antiguo old section this time, and hotel Barcelona Catedral was excellent for our needs. The Barri Gotico, la Ribera, el born - the whole ciutat vela or old town was right at our doorstep. A warm welcome from very personable staff gave us a smiling greeting with a twinkle in their eye, letting us know from the very start that this was to be a lovely stay. And that it was! I had all sorts of needs for tickets to be printed out, restaurant suggestions and subsequent reservations as well as printed out map directions, taxis, metro and train info. to visit nearby areas, finally airport transfers- all which were handled with efficiency, humbleness, expertise and the pleasure of providing excellent customer service. Each restaurant recommendation was better than the one before... When we needed more hangars and an iron ironing board, they were delivered to our room in less than one minute! Best service I have ever seen! An important thing for me was to practice my Spanish, and everyone was super patient and helpful with me. It was as if they couldn't do enough for us...Aluzinante! The rooms were nice and big for Europe, clean, comfortable and certainly fancy enough for me, and the location truly couldn't be better. I can't wait to return to Barcelona either with another group or just with family or friends and stay at this warm and happy hotel again. Loved our stay and love the staff of this property...genuine, authentic, knowledgeable, kind and caring staff is what made all the difference.

Green Features: Nice job with this. Lights went out after so many seconds in stairwells and public bathrooms, signage indicated towels could be reused to save resources, walking and public transportation were encouraged.
