Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

We got booked at this hotel when the once we originally booked had problems with their a/c. Upon arrival at our original hotel they directed us to this one, only for one night which turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Lobby is not very inviting, but staff were friendly and serviceminded. We had a big room with quite modern furniture and the best beds we slept in at a hotel. Felt really good after a long trip! Bathroom was the usual standard one for a hotel of this class. Overall a clean, modern hotel with good location

Catalonia Diagonal Centro Hotel, Great Customer Service, good facilities and clean. Bell Man Eduardo great helper with transportation, restaurants, tours information. We get early in the morning to the hotel with a group of eight persons. They put all the bags in a storage, that way we get to the city until the afternoon that the rooms where ready.

Stayed here for a 3 nights while visiting Barcelona for the first time. The staff, after warming up some, were very kind and helpful. They provided great suggestions for activities, local places to eat, and easiest ways to get around. They also held my bags when I arrived hours before check in. They facilities were very nice. The room and bathroom was very clean. Appeared to be newer. Mini-fridge in the rooms with a mini bar available. The A/C functioned well. Great location. Close to the metro. Easy location to get a cab from. And Placa Catalunya is only about a 20 minute walk (though it feels like an eternity during the summer heat). Only negative, was that my mini-fridge wasn't working initially. They were able to fix it pretty quickly and easily, but that was after asking about it a couple of times.

I recently stayed in Hotel Catalonia with my husband and 2x children. What a fantastic hotel. The staff were professional and friendly. The room was spotless, well laid out and nicely decorated. We had a family room which consisted of 2x large double beds pushed together, not a sofa bed which seems to be the norm in most hotels when staying with kids. The bed was so comfortable and the bedding was very luxurious. The breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. Staff again were lovely. The pool, although small proved a huge hit with my kids and was never that busy. I would absolutely recommend and would stay here again next time I visit Barcelona.
