“We could not have asked for more...”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

A four day stay at the Catalonia Catedral in the heart of Barcelona was a real joy. Amenable staff all round, happy to assist in any way they could, with a smile. Our less than quiet four year old was very welcome, Dana and the rest of the breakfast team being very playful and patient with her. Lovely food, rooms, views and relaxing sun deck with pool on the roof. We will rebook this hotel on the next trip to Barcelona.

We had to leave our Airbnb rental because it had a lot of mold and the staff at this hotel saved the day! They were super understanding and accommodating for a group of three, at the last minute, during a huge conference. They even gave us a special rate! As far as the room - I think it was one of the nicer hotel rooms I've been in. It had very comfortable beds and the balcony let out onto the rooftop pool! Very nice hotel!

This was a return visit, as we love the style, the location and the staff of this hotel. Previously we stayed in room 301 which was very spacious and although they are both “superior” rooms, the room this stay (307) was smaller - in theory they are supposed to be roughly the same size but there’s not enough space in 307 to put a sofa (as there is in 301). We were late getting to the hotel so there was no time to query it on checking in, but the next morning the helpful reception staff offered to move us, and explained that 301 is a 3 person superior room, hence the sofa bed. Next time I will know what to ask for when making the reservation :0)

This hotel is well-located and fine but not worth the extra cost of of its upmarket claims. The style is not only bland and characterless but is surprisingly impractical. Our room had hanging space for clothes but no shelves or drawers, no mirror over the dressing table and a tiny tiny amount of space on the bedside tables. Cleaners did not wash dirty glasses for the four nights we were there. Coffee machine at breakfast was trendy but couldn't cope with the level of use and could only provide a trickle of hot water for a cup of tea. The whole feeling was very impersonal and you might be anywhere in the world.

The staff were really friendly and helpful (we turned up 90 mins early hoping to drop-off our bags and were allowed to check-in instead). The location was fantastic for sight-seeing or just hanging around and so much better than the tackiness of Las Ramblas. The restaurant was good (we ate in once) but plenty of other places nearby. Not sure when we will be back in Barcelona but would certainly hope to stay here again.

Was here for the bank holiday in August and was very impressed with the hotel. Its in a great location close to all the main attractions, the beach, restaurants and the open top tour bus. Hotel is modern with all the necessary amenities, rooms are decent size for a city hotel and are very clean, with a spacious bathroom including hairdryer. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The roof top pool was a great addition and there was a pool bar service which was a great addition. Hotel is close to Barrio Gotico and all the bars and restaurants in there, felt very safe when walking around in the evening. Would stay here again
