Caledonian Hotel
Ranked #260 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 4 April 2014

Stayed here for business and had a large room on 6th floor with balcony. Hotel stairwells are a bit bland, but the room itself was very clean and well equipped. Nice Balcony overlooking the back of hotel. Staff very efficient and friendly. A small problem with the sink in bathroom was quickly repaired. A great location and close to the Rambla, with a main metro station 3 mins away giving you access to Barcelona. Pleasant and reasonably priced, will defo return

Room Tip: rooms on top floor have large balconies with chairs and table

Very convenient location. We walked to Las Ramblas/Placa de Catalunya everyday. Its a block away from the Universitat Metro stop. The hotel is clean and had enough space for us. The sheets and towel smells like vinegar though maybe thats what they use as disinfectant. The towels were thin. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful however there was an older gentleman in the night shift who is grumpy as hell. Spanish channels only. Wi-Fi works. Our hotel is facing Gran Via and we slept fine.

I stayed in the Caledonian for a long weekend and the staff were the friendliest ever without being intrusive. They always had a smile and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is in a great location to explore Barcelona from. It is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is adequate but not over the top and again the staff at breakfast never seem to stop they are always replenishing and clearing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for a break of a week or less, it is just the ticket

Stayed here for two nights 10th - 12th Feb, small quiet hotel, rooms clean and have everything you need, staff excellent nothing was too much trouble for them. Location is great only ten minutes to the Ramblas and Aerobus stops 5mins walk away. We will definitely return to this hotel

Stayed 27/01/14 till 31/01/14 was n't expecting too much as got it foe £160 for the 4 nights but pleasantly surprised, room clean but small but not an issue. Hotel is well located for Metro and approx. 200m from the Aerobus stop at Place de Universitat, 10 minutes walk to Las Ramblas.
We stayed right on main road and to be honest couldn't hear traffic with windows closed which we were worried about but proved wrong!
Only bad point I could say was walls were very thin and could hear next room quite alot.

Room Tip: Use Aerobus for a quick cheap option to hotel

Wanted a cheap long weekend away for my birthday and saw this deal online. Wasn't sure what the hotel would be like but when we got there it was exactly what we were looking for. Close to everything, metro or walking distance to many places. The hotel was very clean and the room was a good size, staff were very helpful and friendly.
