“Great hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We stayed here for our first three nights in Barcelona. It was a great place to get acquainted with the city- right next to the Cathedral and an easy walk to lots of places. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with tips, directions and honest recommendations for restaurants. The room was huge, clean and comfortable. The rooftop pool was a surprising and delightful bonus- in the evenings there is a masseuse and you can have snacks and drinks delivered poolside. Great stay.

Very nice hotel - a cool place to stay rather than warm and comforting. Not planning to be a home from home! The rooms are comfortable and bathrooms excellently equipped (no bidet?) with the shower superbly appointed. The pool on the roof is super with nice beds and seats. Nice device as well. Watch out for the heat of the decking! Bad for youngsters particularly.

Didn't do breakfast here - just too expensive.
The other thing was that they ran out of 2 separate bottles of local digestive-with a bit of a shrug -slightly amazing for this quality of hotel. WiFi also didn't work for much of our stay.

Good place for the height of the summer though and aircon worked very well and quietly.

This is one of the best hotels at which we have ever stayed- anywhere. First, the location is ideal... around the corner from the Cathedral, and right in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. Every sight worth seeing in Barcelona is within walking distance, except for Parc Guell, to which you can easily take the bus. It is literally less than a five minute walk to a major bus terminal, so it's very easy (and cheap) to take a thirty minute bus to and from the airport (don't bother with a taxi from the airport- the bus is very easy, much faster and way less expensive). Secondly, the service at this hotel was second to none. From the moment we walked in and met Alex and Carlos, they did their very best to make us feel welcome and happy. We arrived very early in the morning, and they told us that they would get us into our room as quickly as possible- which they did. Our room was very clean, and larger than expected for a European hotel. The wifi was strong and reliable all the time. The room was cleaned quickly and beautifully every morning. After a long day of sightseeing, the rooftop pool was such a nice place to recharge in the late afternoon. A little rest, a little sun, and a nice cold glass of their yummy Sangria, and we were refreshed, relaxed and ready for an evening out! EVERY staff member at this hotel was courteous, friendly, professional, and genuinely wanted to help in every way they could. Most spoke English extremely well, and if they didn't, they tried so hard! I absolutely cannot say enough about the staff in this hotel- spectacular! The manager should thank them all personally, and give them each a big raise! They deserve it!

My girlfriend and I picked this hotel in Barcelona for its location, and we were not disappointed on that front - set next to the Cathedral, the hotel is in one of the nicest plaza's in Barcelona and a quick walk from all of the best sites. The rooms were nothing to write home about, however - they were very small (basically fit nothing more than the bed) and the air conditioner was sub-par (we had to sleep half the time with nothing on the bed to keep from over-heating). There is a small pool on the roof, but the water is quite cold and it was filled the entire time with noisy kids - not the ideal setting for a romantic getaway. In short - we loved the location, but the rooms were lacking.

A surprise trip for my mothers 70th
Couldn't fault this hotel the breakfast / location / service
The only negative was tried to re book in June and no one responded to emails so ended up staying at the equally fantastic art gallery hotel
Catalonia catedral has the best location ever
This is my 5th time to Barcelona and each time has been wonderful

The location of this hotel is amazing. You are a short walk most sights in Barcelona. The hotel staff was always friendly and helpful, full of great information and recommendations. The "contemporary" rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious (for European hotels). My family of 6 fit comfortably in two rooms. We used our balcony to sit outside in the late afternoon/early evening. The breakfast buffet was good, something for everyone in my family. I would highly recommend this hotel.
