Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya
Ranked #103 of 520 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed July 7, 2014

I stayed at the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya on a week long business trip during St John's Festival. The night of the festival was drowned in the noise of fireworks. I am not one for being a grump, but they happened literally all night.

This was apparent in single glazing windows which do not keep the noise out very well. The traffic noises were also prevalent throughout my stay which made a good night sleep hard to come by.

The rooftop restaurant has stunning views of Barcelona. Breakfast was good - nothing special but good. The bar was small but well serviced and looked the part. Prices were what you expect (but shouldn't accept) from a hotel bar which made drinking there a rarity.

One bizarre thing is the thickness of the pillows - absolutely massive and gave me a sore neck! I could have asked housekeeping for different ones I guess but it was a bit bizarre.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor.

We enjoyed our stay in Grand Hotel Torre Catalunya, very friendly staff, big and clean rooms.We were lucky and had a corner room on the 16th floor and enjoyed a magnificent panorama. The hotel is very good located next to the Sants train station. Several metro lines pass by and with the renfe trains (every 30 min) the airport is very easy to reach no need for busses or taxi.

This hotel is in a good location, opposite the train station and close to Place Espanya and the Aerobus to and from the airport.

We stayed in a North facing room on the ninth floor. The room was one of their basics: there was two showers in a very large bathroom and plenty of space in the room itself. There was also a desk, good size wardrobes, two comfy chairs and a small table and floor to ceiling windows with stunning views of the northern part of the city.

The staff were all friendly and I would happily stay here again.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights. This is a beautiful hotel with a lot of great amenities. It's right across the street from the train station so that is very convenient if you're traveling by train. The front desk employees were very nice and helpful. Patricia checked us in and was very welcoming. Our train was cancelled to our next destination due to a train strike in France. We checked out of the hotel and after getting to the train station, saw it was cancelled. We booked a flight that left later that evening. We went back to the hotel and they held our luggage and also let us use the lobby and wi-fi. This was extremely helpful and made a stressful situation much better.

The rooms are very large and so is the bathroom. They gave us a room on the higher floor for free and the views are great. They could use some updating on the furniture as there were some scratches.

We didn't eat breakfast there as it seemed a little pricey to us. We did eat at the bar/restaurant near the lobby and the food was ok. A little overpriced.

The wi-fi is good. They give you slippers which is a nice extra touch.

The location is good as far as being across from the train station but it's about a 30 minute walk to Las Rambles and the beach area. Sometimes we walked and it was nice to see the city. Other times we took the metro (there is a stop very close to the hotel). Beware of the Metro. There are a lot of pickpockets, especially on the metro. Someone tried to get into my husbands backpack that was on his one shoulder but he caught the guy.

Overall, we enjoyed this hotel and it was a welcome change to the other hotels we stayed at in Europe as they were all very small.

Stayed in hotel (Deluxe room) one night with my wife when traveling to Paris by train. The room was dated but had large comfortable beds with views of the city. Did not have breakfast in the hotel but ate dinner in the restaurant on the top floor...which does have great views of the city as well as good food. Wifi was also good and hotel staff was friendly. I would also stay again if price remains reasonable. As previously noted the only negative was that we also found the bathroom was not as clean as would be expected in a 4* hotel.

The hotel was nice and clean with a pleasant staff, reasonably priced bar and nice pool right next door. It is also located right near the train station so makes it easy to travel around the city. Would recommend for someone that wants a good hotel without a need to have luxury if not spending a ton of time in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the mountain on a high floor.

My friends and I traveled France and Spain for our 50th birthdays and this hotel was one of highlights. I highly recommend it for a stay in Barcelona. Not only is it gorgeous, well appointed and more, but there was a taxi strike which made many guests in the area miss trains and we were right across from the station. We loved our 17th floor corner suite so much that we ordered surprisingly good room service for dining in 2 nights after long days of walking the city. I will stay there again, with certainty : )

Room Tip: Splurge and get a high floor room.
