After 8 hour flight delay we arrived in Barcelona. The taxi cost us about 32 eur from the airport. The narrow street that this hotel is on is charming. Deborah at the check in desk was professional, friendly and informative.The room we had on the seventh floor was a standard double. It was perfect for our 2 night stay before... More

We greatly enjoyed staying at Catalonia Born. Excellent location, close to a lot of sites and the Metri. The room had a nice modern decor, comfortable beds, good wifi, tea/coffee and a mini bar (didn't use but liked having a fridge) Great bathroom!

The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. All of the staff were welcoming and friendly, offering helpful advice for dining, sightseeing etc.. We would stay here again if we are lucky enough to get back to Barcelona someday!

Excellent hotel, with small rooms and a small rooftop pool, but besides those two things, clean and comfortable friendly stay in barcelona for 5 days. Prime location as walked to las ramblas, arc de triomph literally on our doorstep, sagrada familia, cas batlo, train to monserrat and parc guell... just everything was wonderful! Recommend it highly to barcelona trip planners!!

Great, clean, spacious room, courteous staff, very reasonably priced bar and a nice restaurant across the street (restaurant at the hotel serves breakfast only). Step from Arc de Triomf and minutes to walk to city center.

We had a wonderful stay at Catalonia Born. We upgraded to a Superior Room that was a little bit bigger than standard (still not huge) and looked out to the alleyway. It is in a wonderful location next to Arc de Triumf and an easy walk/metro anywhere you want to go. The room was clean and bathroom was nice. The... More

This hotel is perfect for a Barcelona visit. Located in the hipster neighborhood of El Born. The double Windows ensured a quiet night. No noise at all! AC works great. The bathroom is very large for European standards. A free bottle of water and chocolates was a nice touch. From this hotel you can walk to all main attractions. While... More

An excellent hotel regarding location, 10-15 min walk to every point of interest - rambla, museums, gothic quarter, cathedral or Barcelonetta. The furniture in the room needs to be modernized, as well the bathroom appliances . It is not clean in the room - the made is superficially washing the tiles at hand reach and not above... Beautiful lobby, new... More

The hotel was perfect for our quick Barcelona trip. We had an ambitious agenda and it was located in a great neighborhood, had an absolutely delicious breakfast to fuel us for the day, and was close to important city veins and cultural areas. The room we stayed in was sufficient and had a king bed.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
