We booked this hotel for its location half way between the place our shuttle bus dropped us off from the airport and the shuttle bus for the cruise terminal. It also offered breakfast at a better price than many without. The front desk was efficient and friendly. Everything was clean and functional with a large bathroom and plenty of soap,... More

Clean, good service at front desk, breakfast ok (but too much sugary food). Room small and uninspiring decor. Bathroom was much better and almost half the size of room. Balcony. Situated in heart of el gotico in very touristy area. Will suit many people.

Great location. Very clean, Helpful staff. Only slight problem was no shaver socket in bathroom. Just off Las Ramblas where the nearest Metro station is located. The Cathedral is a short walk away. This hotel is brilliant as a base for exploring the Gothic Quarter and beyond.

My husband and I, although in our 60s, wanted to be in the middle of things without paying high prices. The hotel could not be more central to the barrio gotico. We spent a week here and were n't on public transport once. Impeccably clean, staff very accommodating and our rooms, facing the internal courtyard, were fabulously quiet. Even during... More

We just checked out of hotel California and really can't recommend it enough. For such a low star rating and price we didn't expect much but we were so pleasantly surprised. The rooms have lots of storage space, extra pillows and blankets, lots of towels, a tv and a very reasonable size ensuite bathroom. The bed is comfy and extra... More

As I wrote, perfectly clean rooms, very friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Best location. Breakfast acceptable, but no fruit at all and artificial juice. My seconds stay, and I shall definitely come back.

Lovely hotel with very welcoming staff. Very good location, clean room, good breakfast . We came to hotel early and got room right away. One thing we did not like, it was no safe or mini fridge in the room.

‘Hotel California’ in Barcelona...well yes, that is the name! Fortunately we landed in the day time so the place was easy to find. One could either take a taxi in at E30 or the blue Areobus at E6 per person that drops you off at the Catalunya Square. The hotel is 15 minutes easy walking distance if one has hand... More

Small hotel in an ideal location - very close to Las Ramblas and Placa Reial but relatively quiet. Single room was spacious, well equipped, very clean and everything worked! Generous buffet-style continental breakfast is included in the price.
