Reviewed January 5, 2013

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights during Decembr 2012, just before Christmas. In general we highly recommend and we're very happy we picked this hotel.
PROS:
* Location is great, just a few steps from La Rambla, so we could just stop by anytime to rest or take a coat. Also a few steps from Metro, buses, shopping, etc.
* Room was very nice and cozy. A good size double bed, clean and comfy bathroom, free WiFi, free safe.
* Staff were very nice and helpfull, speaking good english.
* Breakfast was rich and satisfying, included eggs, pasties, fruits, sweets and more. Beyond our expectation.
CONS:
* We have known a better mattress.
* Rear side view. An extra payment (~18 euro) is charged for having a front side room (the ones with the lovely balcony).

When I book a hotel, I usually look for the location, where I can do things just walking around. This was my second time in Barcelona. On my first i wish I had stayed in a place near Plaza de Cataluña. This is where the buses from the airport stop, the tourists double deck buses departs, the main metro hub, just ten minutes walking to Gaudi's La Pedrera and Batló's houses, Boqueria Market and Ramblas catwalk. That's why i chose this hotel. The staff was very nice, the breakfast amazing and the room had space enough. It was a bit high for my budget but it worth! My flight back home was at night, but paying 40€ i've got a late checkout till 6 pm, that helped me a lot.

Na minha segunda visita a Barcelona, queria ficar em um hotel na Plaza de Cataluña. O local é muito estratégico: o ônibus do aeroporto tem ponto final nela, os ônibus de turismo saem de lá, as casas de Gaudi ficam a dez minutos, o mercado da boqueria e as ramblas também estão ali do lado e a estação de metrô é uma das principais. Embora um pouco caro para meu orçamento, decidi ficar e não me arrependo. Deu tudo certo! No dia da volta, meu voo era às 8. Pagando 40 euros, eu pude ficar no quarto até as seis da tarde, o que foi muito confortável. A equipe foi muito atenciosa e recomendo a todos.

If you take the Aerobus from the airport, (advisable since its very easy and much cheaper), it'll stop outside the Corte Ingles Department Store right at the Plaza Catalunya. Cut across the plaza and you'll see a road between two blocks. Go about 20 metres into this road and the hotel is on your right opposite the Hotel Regina. Even the local can get it wrong. I asked a sales person at a shop and a waiter in a cafe. They both showed me to the H10 which also has the words 'Hotel Catalonia' written outside. The H10 faces the Plaza. The Hotel Catalonia is on the side road. Even taxis made the same mistake. Be sure to tell the taxi that its on Carrer Bergara. Then you'll be sent to the right hotel.

Location wise, this hotel is perfect. It's near the confluence of three most interesting roads. The Rambla de Catalunya where you'll find a whole host of restaurants, tapas bars and cafes, the Passeig de Gracia for shopping and of course the very famous La Rambla.

If you're up to walking, even the Sagrada Familla, the Santa Maria Church and the El Gothic area, and the port is all within walking distance. Many of the popular tapas bars such as Cal Pep and Cuitat Comtal are nearby.

I like the fact that this hotel is in a central location yet faces a side road so it's much quieter.

The service was very friendly. From the receptionists to the porters and the housekeeping staff. Always a smile and a "hola". Very helpful too.

I chose a room with a balcony. Room was big and the balcony was clean. I used it everyday and not once was it dusty. I slept with the balcony door ajar at night for fresh air and was not disturbed by noise.

Shower was powerful and they provided slippers and bathrobes. The in-room safe was big enough for my iPad and a Netbook.

My only complaint would be that there was no complimentary tea or coffee provided and even if you bring your own, there was no kettle to boil water. Otherwise, this is a hotel I'd recommend and would definitely stay again.

Spent a fab 4 nights at this hotel! Service great, room was lovely -view over the pool! - Location - the best ! Been to Barcelona a dozen or so times and this is probably the best hotel I have stayed in in terms of location, facilities and cost. (Even during festival time in September)

Just to be clear;service and staff in this hotel is immaculate.Very friendly and helpful staff.Rooms are ok,furniture looks like it has been nibbled on.Big turnoff;no non-smokingrooms.Room and bedding smelled of cigarettes,not acceptable in this day and age.Breakfastbuffet was good,wifi gave some problems but was ok overall.We has separate beds;double beds were available in the 'old' part of the hotel,if you are claustrofobic ,stick with the single bed.Location is excellent,just around the corner from the Ramblas.
All in all a pleasant stay but the hotel is overrated.
