Catalonia Atenas Hotel
Ranked #234 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Stayed there for 2 nights.
Friendly and helpful staff, good breakfasts, wi-fi, spacious and bright rooms. It was nice coming back to rest after long day.
The hotel located a bit far from the city center (30-40 minutes walking), but it makes the price lower. Close to metro, so it's not that problematic in the end.
Will fit all sorts of trips.

My fiancé and I stayed here for 4 nights and fully enjoyed our stay.
Upon arrival, we parked the car in the underground carpark. There are not many places, but there is a public carpark five minutes walk from the hotel if full. Parking is 15EUR/night.
We were offered a free glass of champagne as our room was not ready. Check-in is at 14h (we arrived at 12h) and check-out 12h.

The snack/bar offfers a wide range of food and drink. We had tapas and a burger which were all delicious. The chicken salad however was very small and there was a pool of water in the dish, resulting in soggy croutons. The barman from Cuba (I think his names was Sebastien) was very firendly and chatty. Thankfully he was there to liven the place up. Some music or sound on the TV wouldn't go a miss...

The room was modern and clean. A very LARGE bed, complimentary bottles of water, tea facilities, toiletries... The bathroom was also modern and clean although the shower did leak at times. Although the room was lovely and more than what we expected (regarding some other reviews), we had 3 issues:

1) We were in room 001 just off the reception area resulting in other guests waking us up multiple times every night when opening doors/talking loudly etc. 2) As we were on the ground floor with a view of the main street, the windows were tinted and there was no natural light in the room during the day. (Positive: There was double DOUBLE glazing, so NO noise from the street). 3) The metro passes right under our room, which was noisy and was very irritating.

Breakfast: Huge selection of breads, pastries, fruit, drinks, cheese, meats, hot food etc...
There are 3 vending machines in the lobby (drinks and snacks) and also an espresso coffee machine with 3 different types of coffee (1.50EUR each).
There are also 2 telephone cabins and internet.
Hotel has free WIFI, but not always a good signal.
The rooftop pool and deck is lovely with an amazing view of the city.
Closest metro: Clot

We would definately stay again as the locations is great and the metro is just accross the road next to the pharmacy.
The reason we gave 4/5 was because of the 3 negative points mentioned above.

Room Tip: I would advise requesting a room on one of the upper levels as I can only assume they do not hear th...

I had a lovely stay in this hotel in Barcelona. The single room was small, had no view, but then, who spends time in a hotelroom when in Barcelona!? So much to see, so much to do :) The staff was lovely, the breakfast was freshly cooked and everything was very clean. Off-season the prices are also very reasonable. The prices for the rooms in high-season are maybe a bit too much.
And a very good extra is that this hotel is on top of a metro/subwaystation with a 5 minute ride to the center of the city. Just excellent!

My wife and me stayed at the Hotel for 4 nights.

The Hotel is advertised as 4 star. We didn"t find the stars:
1. The rooms are so small that you can hardly circulate the beds.
2. The Hotel is full with groups including young peope and there is no noise insulation against it.
3. The bathroom has no vent so that it only ventilates into the room !
4. The staff doesn"t seem to mind about the guests. Lock as if the "only work there". Very basic
and unattantive staff.
5. The good: near Metro station and beds are ok.

All in all - if you look for a place to leave at 8:00 and return at 23:00 just to sleep - a possible (not recomended) place. If you look for a 4 star experience - look else where.

The men at the front desk were not nice. They didn't explain anything to us about the city, they hardly smiled and they always looked as if they were having bad day, although while talking to the guests!


The rooms were huge but somehow looked old, as well as the bathroom.

The hotel was very near to Clot Metro Station, which has 2 lines, both take you to Barcelona's main attractions.
