“Wonderful Hotel”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel and could find no faults.Excellent location,wonderful customer service,lovely view,really good varied breakfast with plenty of choice,nice clean room,lovely pool etc.Areobus ,Metro and Hop on and Hop off tour bus on the doorstep.So very easy to get around the city.We used the Aerobus to travel to and from the airport and it was so much cheaper than a taxi and very straight forward.Drop off point was directly outside of the hotel.I found the hotel staff very pleasant and helpful.Quick check in and check out.I have read some of the negative comments re hotel being situated on a busy island and it was noisy but i hasten to add that we were facing the island with the lovely view of the Palace and Fountains and once we closed the window it was very peaceful.Perhaps these people should read reviews before they travel ?? Overall we had a wonderful, pleasant 1 week stay in The Catalonia Plaza and we would not hesitate to return. Well done to the management and their team.

A big budget hotel for tour groups - I counted 3 more tour coaches in the couple of hours after our group had settled in. Settling in took a while due to the number of couples requesting a room change, as the rooms either face onto one of the busiest roundabouts in Barcelona, or look onto a noisy internal courtyard that hosted a function each night we stayed. I listened to the relentless sirens and honking horns all night. The very hard mattress and paper-thin pillows didn't help my sleep. Good shower and reasonable bathroom but every toilet flush sounded like an overhead jet. The rooms on each side of me woke me up twice (and I probably did the same to them). Good, free wi-fi and room safe for security (with €40 deposit for a key).
Reception staff seemed frazzled by the constant, hectic activity and customer requests but they tried to do their job, probably with little room to be flexible as the hotel must be at capacity in season. We felt a bit 'cattle class' at times. The lobby was always bustling with people and their luggage.
Location near the Metro and a shopping mall (The Arena) adjacent were convenient, but it's a good walk to most of the sights this lovely city has to offer.
I might have been generous giving an 'average' rating as I'd look elsewhere if I were to come back in the future.

Room Tip: Earplugs or a small boutique hotel in the back streets or go with the flow as you enjoy Barcelona.

Have already been in this chains Atoch hotel in Madrid which was excellent & expected same quality.just been served the worst meal I have ever had in any hotel.Globus had arranged the meal for 8pm in a certain room...40+ guests arrive and the room is not even set up. We knew there was a problem.then we were moved to a room which normally seems to be used for conference guests.food selection and quality was poor.Food was served from a hallway????I had better pastry offerings for breakfast than this hotel offered as desert and don't get me started on the main meal!!! Poor quality hake-which was cold- in a country that as excellent fish and sausages!!!!-served from a banmarie was cold - give me a break.Went to bar to watch soccer and had better quality food there. good staff at reception and tried their best. Good experience in bar.but all staff seem over worked and not enough of them.room good with exception of shower which is leaking on to floor....not safe or ideal. It is so hard to believe this is same hotel chain as the hotel in Atoche, Madrid.if we were treated this badly and with such little respect when booked in by a major tour group like Globus I wouldn't like to check in as an ordinary member of the public.

We arrived early than expected to the hotel and the checkin was made 2 hours prior the check-in hour without any problem. We received a high-floor room as asked. The room was really big and comfortable(except poor and thin pillows - we asked another 2 pillows).
The location is perfect for traveling around the city,the metro is just outside the hotel front door!
Magic Fountains and Montjuic is nearby as well.(5 minutes by foot)
The breakfast was the best we've experienced in Europe,rich selection of food besides good choose of pastries and fruits.
I recommend to stay there.

Room Tip: Our room was at sixth floor and the AC noise was noticed. Rooms with view to the plaza is preferred...

I would definitely stay in this hotel again. The hotel seemed modern and the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff was helpful and printed off reservations for us. However, the best thing about the hotel was the location. We were across the street from the old bull ring which is now a shopping center with shopping and restaurants. We ate there several times. The hotel is across the street from the metro station and we walked to the site of the 1992 Olympic Games. I think the area is safe but we were warned to be watchful of pickpockets at all times.

Pros.
Location. Metro station feet away from the front door.
Big buffet room for breakfast. Was able to easily handle large groups.
Room clean. Bed ok. Powerful water pressure.
Cons:
No view as was in an inside room.
Long. Long. Long. Corridors.
Lousy pillow. What's with Spain - not one good pillow all trip.
Very hectic city atmosphere.
Food ok. Nothing special.

My first travel in Barcelona (and Spain) was a nightmare: we arrived in early morning (9 am) and we got our room at 3:30/16 pm! In the meanwhile we was waiting for the room, someone stole us all our bags with documents, money, and phones (at 14/14:30 pm). We've been told to pay attention to snatchers in Barcelona, but we couldn't imagine that a moment of distraction in the Hotel could have been that fateful. Moreover, the hotel crew was really rude to us (apart from an italian guy which was not always on call), and the hotel has cameras and guardians too, but they didn't get any responsability. They didn't do anything to help us, we were really lucky we have some friends there. We felt like we were totally abandoned.
I have almost nothing to say about the hotel structure (nice, apart from cleaning service, we could clearly smell cigarette smoke when we get into our room at evening, I'm not a smoker, and this should be forbidden not only to hosts but also the all the hotel crew), but what I expect from a luxury hotel is the total devotion to clients. They barely got the "know how". A total fail and a deep disappointment.
