“Great location, great hotel and excellent service”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

Location is excellent. 5 minutes to the top of La Rambla, around the corner from Gotic Quarter, 5 minutes to a market, and a great tapas place, Bilbao-Beria, just at its doorstep.

Hotel is very modern, lovely room and fully-equipped bathroom.

We had so much help and recommendation from Victor at the front-desk, which really helped us enjoy Barcelona even more.

Overall, we had a great experience at the hotel and will recommend this to our friends and family.

My sister and I have just come home having spent 5 glorious days enjoying Barcelona and this wonderful hotel! It's such a joy to stay somewhere where the staff are genuinely friendly but not obsequious and so so helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The location is absolutely perfect as it's so central and the tourist bus, if you should need it, was only a 5 minute walk away. Tapas bars, restaurants, shops, cafe's and beautiful sights are all around and an added bonus was that it's pedestrianised so no noise! Highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Why spend more when a standard double is absolutely fine.

My husband and I recently stayed here for a 3 night trip to Barcelona, our first visit to the city. We were impressed with the location of the hotel, being in the gotic quarter and surrounded by tapas restaurants, shops and just up from the cathedral. It felt very safe, both daytime and evening. Upon checking in, they kindly upgraded us to a room with a balcony, very much appreciated :-) We found the room a good size, with a good size bathroom and spotlessly clean (as others have mentioned, yes there is noise but its to be expected due to the location, certainly for us, this enhanced the experience) The minibar had a good selection of drinks and snacks and also menu's to order food which could be delivered to your room from restaurants outside the hotel. We had breakfast only on one morning as we wanted to try the local cafes and restaurants but it was supberb, such a great variety of everything you could want, including fizz if that's your morning tipple. All the food was fresh and plentiful and well presented. The staff at the hotel were really pleasant and always had a smile and 'hola'. Would we return, definitely ! Thank you to all for making our stay so pleasant. Regards, Paula & Chris

Room Tip: A room with a balcony if you don't mind the noise

I hadn't been in Barcelona for years, and a friend chose this hotel for me. It was a great choice. The three nights I spent there were made enjoyable by the friendly staff and excellent amenities. As others have pointed out, the location is central and very convenient. Another thing I liked was that it was an old historic building which has been beautifully renovated to include every modern convenience while respecting the feel of the old architecture. I'll definitely come back here next time I'm in Barcelona.

I went to Barcelona on a business trip and decided to spend one more night there to do some sightseeing and enjoy the great restaurants. The Catalonia Catedral hotel seemed to be very well situated for that and indeed, it was right at the heart of it.

It was located in a pedestrian zone very close to the Catedral, so no noisy traffic. But some taxis managed to get there to drop of the luggage. The double room was spacious with a large bathroom and very clean. Service was very friendly.

For me it was a great place to start exploring the city. Loved it.

Stayed February 2014, travelled solo

I was at this hotel for a week and was very happy with my stay. The room was very clean and the front desk staff very helpful. I liked the location next to the subway and the Cathedral very much, and was extremely happy with their breakfast on offer. I did not order from their Japanese dinner menu myself as there were many places to eat within close walking distance, but did not hear good things about the room service food quality from my colleagues who did choose to eat lunch and dinner in the restaurant.

For a quick sandwich alternative to the room service I especially recommend Enrique Tomas, a place specializing in selling iberico hams (but also make sandwiches for you as well). They have no dine in option but it is a small matter to grab a quick sandwich back to your hotel if you are feeling peckish.

Another note for business travelliers, there is no fitness center, so pack running shoes. There is a pool but it is not heated.

Room Tip: The elevators are quite slow

Our five day stay at the Catalonia Catedral was everything we expected. Our room was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and large by European standards, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast choices were plentiful. The location was easily accessible to the cities sites. I would stay here again if coming back to Barcelona.
