The NH Calderon is a very nice hotel in the centre of Barcelona.

It's located at the beginning of the northern stretch of the Rambla, just 200 meters north of Plaza Catalunya. There's a fair amount of eateries and cafés nearby, and a 7 minute walk from the Metro.

Rooms are not the biggest in the world, but they are all practical, clean and really comfortable, with workspace, aircon, minibar and so forth. Everything works brilliantly.

On the roof, there is an outdoor swimming pool plus some massage treatment, etc. - this is a really cool feature given that you're right in the center of the city. Even if it's not heated up, it's just wonderful to take a swim after long hours of batteling with the noise and troubles of Barcelona.

Also, this hotel has its own parking facility in the basement, though it's a little tricky to find.

Overall, the price/quality factor is great. Good, central, clean, nice staff.

Only negative feedback I have is that car parking is very expensive (nobody really needs a car in central Barcelona anyway), and that they think that the WIFI cost for €15 per day is reasonable.

Also, breakfast may be good - but for what they charge, you'd better eat somewhere else round the corner, saving you at least 80% on the cost.

Room Tip: Had no troubles with any rooms specifically.

After a perfect cruise on the Mediterranean our final destination was Barcelona and were two days at this hotel, NH Calderon. It is perfectly located just two blocks north of the Catlunya square. Note the noise level on the Rambles (and the pickpockets) is not the best place to be. This is just north of the Rambles so its perfectly located. The hotel in the new modern look and rooms were bigger than expected for Europe. The bathroom was larger than usual. Again all the fixtures were modern. Even though we arrived off the ship at 9:30 AM we put our luggage in to storage and came back at 2PM and had a room ready. Search AA.com for discounts for this hotel. We received deal for breakfast included for two. The breakfast was perfect.

This location has a small pool on the roof which was perfect to cool down after running around all day. Not too many lounge chairs on the roof but then again it was more than enough for the number of people that show up.

There is a restaurant on premises if you want dinner or plenty to choose from in the area. We ate out. All the main roads have outdoor restaurants and other seating for drinks. We went both nights out to enjoy the warm evening dry breeze with no bugs in the air and a cool liquid refresher just out side the door of the hotel.

The Catalunya area has all the metro facilities you need to get around and at the train station they can direct you to the correct train platform. During our stay we never had to use a taxi as all the metro lines we there. Cost was about 1.6 Euro for day pass or about 6 Euro for a unlimited use.

Going home we walked for less than 10 minutes (with our luggage in tow) to the bus to the airport. Every six minutes there is another bus leaving to the airport. Cost was 5.30 Euro one way. This was a great deal.

Hotel NH Calderon located within minutes walking from Pl Catalonia where you can catch tour buses, trains, and airport shuttle. Location is convenient, quiet, and expensive. Do not consider any hotels in old town, cathedral, or ramblas as they are crowded, dirty, and unpleasant at night. My wife and I were pleased our choice of NH Calderon hotel. Cheapest (what we booked) room was modern, comfortable, and large. Everything is brand new including convenient furniture. Hotel has a nice pool on the roof with a magnificent view. There are few sun beds by the pool side, sauna, and other spa features. Barcelona is HOT in September so the refreshing pool is excellent for a quick break during busy touring day.
Breakfast was poor and overpriced and I do not recommend. Hotel provide free internet in lobby. It is slow but possible. At the checkout they charged or tried to charge us for some nuts from a mini-bar which we did not even see making us explain. That was unpleasant, humiliating, and stupid for the management, and really (I mean it) ruined the impression.

We were very happy about our choice of hotel in Barcelona, although we would have liked even better if they had familyrooms. As a family of 4 we had to split into 2 rooms which of course is OK but not ideal. The rooms were beautiful! Very fresh and delicate with a wonderful bathroom. Very comfortable beds!!
The location couldn`t have been any better, right on the Ramblas Catalunya with ceveral Tapas bars lined up right outside the front door (Yammee:)!) and just a couple of blocks from Las Ramblas.
We loved the rooftop garden with a pool which we mostly had all to ourselves. The view from there was magnificent!!

Breakfast was fabolous and gave us the perfect start to the day!!

Would definately go back!

Stayed 6 nights at the NH Caleron. The room was large as was the bathroom and nicely equiped and air conditioned and clean. Breakfast was fairly standard but one could eat well for much less at any number of places nearby which had more atmosphere. Lobbey leaves something to be desired..looks very 70"s. Free Internet access is limited to 15 minutes at one of 2 computers in the lobby. Best feature is the roof-top pool which has a nice view but unfortunately no service for drinks or food. Location is a plus..many good restaurants right outside on the mall including an excellent one right across the street. A short walk to the metro and 10 minute walk to the airport bus. Laundry service was excellent although pricy.

Stayed at the Calderon during Circuit Festival. Large and great room. Comfortable bed and great bathroom. Roof terrace with swimming pool had not many sunbeds. It was a shame, as it would be nice to be there on hot sunny days.
