“The Perfect Place To Stay In Barcelona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

We just got back from a wonderful one week vacation in Barcelona. The Hotel Barcelona Catedral was the perfect place to stay. It is located on a side street, 1/2 block from the Catedral's very large plaza, which always has something of interest going on. The room was very large, filled with conveniences, a beautiful large bathroom, with a swimming pool and fitness gym on the 5th floor roof and free internet computers on the ground floor. The front desk staff was over the top cooperative and helpful. You couldn't ask for more from a hotel, except maybe to have a tapas bar in your room. But then there are two very friendly tapas bars in the plaza. Also, the hotel is very convenient for the easy to use Barcelona metro, taxi cabs, and the city tour buses.

I decided to splurge on a hotel on this trip to Europe rather than go the budget route. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in May. The furnishings in the lobby are modern and bright and the staff is very helpful. The hotel's restuarant was completely dead. They had a wonderful patio area and I think I would have gone out there if more people were hanging out. The rooms were just not that impressive. They seemed to be on the smaller side. Overall the place was quiet and clean but 1.50 euro for in room coffee, come on it's a 4 star hotel! Just don't have the coffee maker in the room. Other than that, the hotel has a great location. If I had it to do over I may have just rented an apartment instead.

We stayed here 4 nights after our cruise. We got there a bit early they were nice enough to keep our luggage, and let us join their free walking tour (which was lovely).
The rooms were modern, clean, and comfortable.
2 things I didn't like: 1) 20 Euros charge for TV 2) the shower door is really illogically placed.

This was the final stop of an 11 day tour of spain with my husband and another couple. By far this was the nicest most modern property that we stayed at during our trip. The rooms are very nice, although it had the smallest rooms of all of the hotels but it was not uncomfortable. Our room faced the interior courtyard so it was very quiet although the hotel is located on a very small street without much traffic so I can't imagine that the rooms facing the street are noisy. The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating, expecially Alex. The location is great, walking distance to Las Ramblas, the waterfront and many Gaudi buildings. There are 3 Metro stops within in 2-3 blocks. The rooftop pool was great and relaxing, not very large but it was never overly crowded. The room does not have a dresser for clothing but a nice sized closet in the room. No iron in the room but available if you ask, there is a hair dryer in the bathroom and the bathroom was very nice, modern and clean. I can't say enough good things about this property.

This hotel is located in the Gotic area of Barcelona. We walked out of the hotel and were able to walk in a beautiful square. Lots of cafes and of course the Cathedral.
Good to note is that there is a Starbucks right there!
Room has a nice shower - great for after a long flight.
Taxi to the hotel from the airport was around $20 Euros and took about 20 minutes.
The A/C and the lights do not work unless you have the room key in the slot to turn the power on - typical for Europe, but good to note.

my partner and i have just stayed at the hotel for 4 days to celebrate his 50th birthday, what a lovely hotel! The rooms are modern, clean, beds are comfortable, huge bathroom, Alex on reception was brilliant, we asked him lots of things like where is the metro, where do we get the bus etc he was so helpful and always smiling, nothing was too much trouble. Only one downside, you have to pay for 1.50 euros if you have a cup of tea in the room, all the facilities are there but if you use them you pay. I had been warned through this site so took my own, i think if they provide the facilities they should be free to use. That was honestly my only moan tho, wonderful quiet location close to everything.
Would go back tomorrow
