My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The rooms are nice and priced well, the hotel was well positioned near a metro stop, a lively Park and the Gothic quarter. The staff we always helpful and attentive. The only complaint would be the noise outside when bins were being collected at 3am, but it is in a city... If you can I would request an inward facing room (facing the courtyard).

Great location in the city center on a small quiet street (restaurant next door closed at 1, but the noise was not disturbing before that either). A lot of nice restaurants within 10-15 min walking. Good breakfast with bacon, eggs, bread, yogurt , fruit etc. The room was nice, however cleaning was not always great (forgotten towels etc) and the window in our bathroom didn't open properly. Pool on the roof top was very (!) small, so wouldn't count on spending any time there. The negatives were all minor and would still recommend this hotel due to its location, breakfast and nice modern rooms.

A good clean efficient hotel reasonably close to the station and within walking distance of the heart of Barcelona. Staff were efficient and helpful and rooms excellent. Would definitely stay here again as good value.

A fantastic hotel, even more central than we could have realised. We only found out how close we were to teh Arc de Triomphe the next morning when we stepped outside and found it around the corner!! The room was lovely having been newly refurbished when we were there earlier this year (2014) and the rooftop pool was a sight to see, even if it was too cold to use in January. We didn't eat in the hotel so cannot comment on that but the variety of food all around the area, including directly across the street make it easy to find somewhere - choosing is the difficult bit! (there will be further reviews of the best ones we found later). As for teh attractions you are practically next to some of them, zoo and triumphal; arch, literally moments walk away - barely minutes. As were some great tapas bars and small daytime cafes. Whilst not in teh middle of town you are close and I woudl reccomend the use of the open top tour buses as a way of getting round. Reasonably cheap and the usual easy hop on, hop off style, taxis are good and work well but could be expensive if that was your preferred mode of transport. Highly recommended for location, cleanliness and politeness of the staff ( a very valued point for me) and I would definitely recommend and consider for use again myself.

Prior to departing on a Mediterranean cruise we spent 4 days (3 nights) in Barcelona at the Catalonia Born Hotel. While researching where to stay in Barcelona I found the hotel prices to be quite high. While the Catalonia Born was not cheap, I felt it offered good value. We had never been to Barcelona before so selecting what part of the city we wanted to be in was a bit dicey. The big plus to the Catalonia Born was its location; a block up the street was a beautiful park, actually two parks. We found that the center of Barcelona was easy to walk around. It took us about 30 minutes to leisurely walk from the hotel to the Sagrada Familia. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, particularly in making recommendations and providing directions. The breakfast was excellent (10 euro each) and there was plenty of room in the dining room downstairs. The room was of decent size with a small balcony overlooking the street in front of the hotel. There was a small pool on the rooftop terrace (but we did not use it). There was also a small bar area on the entry level and they also provided Wi-Fi. All-in-all it was a very positive experience for us and we would definitely stay there again when we return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Our room was on the front side of the hotel, overlooking the street. While there was some noise in the evening from nearby restaurants and bars, it was not annoying.
