The Caledonian Hotel is located right near the Universitat in Barcelona, Spain. It's conveniently located near the metro station at Universitat and close to numerous bars and restaurants. La Rambla is just a seven minute walk from the hotel and the Catalunya Plaza is even closer. The Caledonian hotel is located in the middle of it all and that's why we chose this hotel.
We chose the superior room with a great terrace, for the extra money spent it was worth it. The terrace has a great view of the surrounding area and you can accomodate up to twelve people up there. We used the terrace during happy hour and a great place to watch both the sunrise and sunset.
As stated, the hotel is very basic but very clean. I believe housekeeping comes once a day, in the morning. Housekeeping cleans the room, takes all take all the garbage and refills soap and shampoo. Once they are done, I believe they leave the hotel. I don't think housekeeping is available 24 hours and if you want new towels you have to wait for the next day. They do a great job with cleaning the room however.
I gave this hotel three stars because it's very basic, clean and great location. Also, the AC was not working properly and we could not fix the issue nor was able to move to another room, thank goodness it was not so hot when we visited Barcelona. The WiFi was also an issue, I had to go to the lobby area in order for me to login or get WiFi.
Check in is at two PM and not any earlier. We arrived in Barcelona at 8:30 am and was at the hotel at 9:00 am but we could not check in 'till two PM, and this might be a problem to some. But since the hotel is near lots of bars and restaurants you can kill time by checking out these places and the area.

Room Tip: get the superior room with a terrace

I have stayed at this hotel twice now (once in July 2011, once in March 2013) and just wish to share my experiences as I think it's a great place to stay. It's in a great location - there are shops and restaurants nearby, and it's around a 5/10 minute walk from Las Ramblas but you wouldn't think it from the price. It's location on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes is perfect for anyone coming in from El Prat (the airport transfer bus stops right near the hotel). The rooms I've stayed in were clean (and kept this way) and the reception staff are very helpful, friendly and polite.

The breakfast I did not sample as it was (to me) a little expensive, but the shops nearby offer plenty of other options.

I cannot say anything for this Hotel, but good things. Location is great -- 2mins away from the Metro and 5-10mins away from famous attractions. Rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds. Helpful staff -- easy check-in & check-out + free baggage storage. Good breakfast selection -- coffee/juice, fruits, yogurt, cheese, spreads, pastries & MEAT (finally!!). Most of our previous hotels (within the same range as Caledonian Hotel) in Rome and Paris only served coffee/juice & pastries.

Will definitely stay here again in the future!
