I was very happy with my decision to spend three nights at the Santa Clara Hotel (Jul 2012). I My room had a nice view of the church behind the hotel. Overall, the Santa Clara is a very nice hotel. They have converted a beautiful old stone building into a sleekly designed hotel with modern conveniences. Both rooms I stayed in were large, incredibly clean and comfortable (though some may find the concrete floors a bit cold). The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. In terms of location, I thought this place was great. It's located in the old town just east of La Seu. It's a very charming area and, in my opinion, much nicer than the glitzy area on the west side of the bay. If you want to be near nightlife, this location is probably not for you, but if you want a quiet, charming location, this place can't be beat.
