Reviewed August 25, 2013

The location cannot be beat: walk out the door and you have the metro station, LaRamblas, the old town and the upscale part of town just by stepping in any one direction. We booked a "standard" room; a bit dated but very clean, well sized and quiet. Nice marble bath. Parking available in underground garage with access directly outside the hotel. No problem with staff at check in/out; only issue was room was not ready upon arrival.

stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. rooms clean enough, bathrooms plenty big enough and its centrally located, the down sides are the staff at check in and out behaved like they were doing us a favour by having us and the pool is very small, no more than 15ft by 8ft and in full shade until about 3pm then partial shade getting better but not until about 5pm, there is also very little outdoor space on the terrace no more than 25 chairs and it is completely overlooked by offices and apartments. Not one for serious swimmers or sunbathers but fine as a base

The location is unbeatable, very close to but not directly on Las Ramblas, so not as noisy as a room would be on L.R.

Very good rooms (we had one with a balcony), clean, firm and very large beds, good bathrooms, security safe, etc. Good aircon. The hotel overall was of a high standard, although a bit 'traditional' in style.

There is a pool but we were disappointed to come back in the evening, having seen a poster advertising drinks by the pool, to find that it had closed at 20:00.

The staff were efficient but not overly friendly, and there weren't enough of them at reception.

Only other thing is that there was some noise from the corridors in the evening.

We would recommend this hotel to others.

No doubt there could not be a better location for a hotel in Barcelona. Imagine... a city hotel with a pool outdoors! I had my 5th floor (top) room facing the interior, but no matter...it was extremely quiet! The room itself was small, but very cozy and well equipped (if not a missing bathrobe counted). The 5 sq mts balcony gave me a lots of more space in the room.
The staff was friendly ans professional. Some moments at the reception were busy because only one service person, but who is busy during the holidays... businessmen might disagree...
The the breakfast... one of the best ever seen! Cava and other wines were served on the buffet! Not ready poured in the glasses!!! The range of beverages was good, however I expected apple juice, but as a substitute I took a fresh apple. Excellent cold cuts and hot egg dishes like tortilla española... so tasty! Fresh baked bread and pastries of all kinds...
I do recommend this hotel to everyone willing to pay 192€ double room/night during the high season. Breakfast 12€.

Room Tip: Interior or exterior room does not matter because the street in front of the hotel is quiet, even th...

The location hotel was exceptional. The good value for money. Walking distance from all the restaurants, sights and shopping. There is a seating area, pool. Very clean and modern rooms. The bathroom was luxurious. The staff were exceptionally helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Breakfast very good also.
Everything was perfect. We will definitely stay again next time.

The Catalonia Plaza Cataluna is a very comfortable hotel in a quite old building which has been nicely updated. It is located on a pedestrian mall which links to Las Ramblas via a myriad of alleys, each with its unique assortment of shops and restaurants. The furniture was comfortable enough for the very little time we spent in the room. Our air conditioner struggled to keep the room comfortable and if they looked at it when we requested, it didn't help any. Our only window looked out onto an air shaft, so there was no scenery, but it probably helped with keeping the room quiet. The breakfast buffet was very nice, with lots of different options. We thoroughly enjoyed a drink by the pool each afternoon during the post-lunch siesta. The staff were all very friendly and eager to please.
