“Great location - 3-4 star quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

a 5-10 minute walk from Placa Catalunya, ideal with the airport bus. A bit confusing to find- landed in Hotel Catalunya Cathedrale first. Nice and spacious rooms, clean and newer in deco style. For the price there were not enough towels for the 3 of us, and the safe door was broken and not fixed after being reported. The front desk staff was helpful. Ammenities in the washroom were not filled after the first night, which was also for the price less than acceptable. (we could sneak some from the cleaning lady in the hall though.) The room was nice and quiet, not as mentioned in previous ratings. We didn't have breakfast (€18.00!) there, many nice cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Were given free ice when asked from the bar.
Good to reccomend to fellow travellers - a bit in the "higher" price range but worth the bit more for location and quietness of the rooms.

This is an excellent hotel in a beautiful part of Barcelona. Right in the heart of the old town, the surrounding streets are full of character. Whilst the hotel is new and modern, it sits discreetly amongst the older buildings. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean, with tea making facilities and an excellent bathroom.

We skipped breakfast at the hotel and ate delicious cheap food at Bilbao which is a 30 second walk from the hotel. Bun Bo, the Vietnamese restaurant across the road is also excellent for dinner and you'll find great tapas restaurants throughout the surrounding area.

Staff at the hotel were extremely helpful. If you stay, make sure you take the free tours offered by the hotel on a Wednesday and Sunday. Juan the guide is extremely interesting and knowledgeable.

The staff was top notch. They were friendly and knowlegable.
The full breakfast on the patio was wonderful every morning....lots of fresh fruit available. Small but lovely rooftop pool. The hotel offered tours of the old city. We had a major leak from the bathroom upstairs and were quickly moved and upgraded to a suite. Would have given 5 stars but suite was on a smoking floor. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Specify smoking or non smoking.

This is a simply delightful hotel, perfectly situation in the heart of Barcelona but in a quiet side street off the Cathedral square. The interior is modern and sleek, the staff extremely helpful and the whole place squeaky clean. Wifi was complementary but temperamental. The open-air pool on the roof offered the perfect antidote to the heat and bustle of the city below. All in all, an excellent four-star hotel suitable for city breaks.

Room Tip: The floors are divided by smoking and non-smoking, so better specify your preference when booking.

Just returned from a four day stay at this hotel and was really pleased. Fab location right next to the cathedral but quiet at night. Five minute walk from the aerobus stop so easy to get to from airport, 2 mins from sightseeing bus stop, 10 mins from sea and 5 mins from las rambles , we couldn't of got any better. Room clean and comfortable and staff superb. Pool was ok if you get time. Starbucks in the square downstairs if you fancy a good latte. We will absolutely stay here again when we return.

Room Tip: Room 401 was fab, the first we were offered was on the first floor and a bit dark but they moved us...

Superb hotel. Every member of staff was extremely welcoming, helpful, friendly and informative. The rooms were better than expected (almost 5 star) clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast, which was included, again was better than expected being hot and plentiful. Ideally situated not far from the Cathedral, Ramblers and Plaza de Espana, the open-top sight seeing bus is also nearby as are plenty of restaurants . We have stayed in Barcelona before but not enjoyed as much as this pre-cruise two night stay. We would most certainly return to this hotel and recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Barcelona.

We just returned from four days at the hotel, and really enjoyed it. The location was great for the festival of Le Merce. It is convenient to many city highlights and transportation. The hotel itself had excellent accomodations and a helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again. Did not get to use the pool or the bar/restaurant.
