Catalonia Eixample 1864
Ranked #202 of 516 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I stayed at this hotel from June 27 - July 3, 2014. This was a perfect hotel. The hotel is conveniently located two blocks away from Passeig de Gracia (the street similar to Magnificent Mile, Madison Ave & 5th Avenue, and Champ d'Elysee). The metro/subway is only 2 blocks away also.

The room is very typical of any regular hotel room in Europe. It was tastefully decorated, modern, very clean, and decent beds. The water pressure in the shower was awesome. The room was on the smaller side but that's typical of most European hotels. Please remember to bring a washcloth as the hotel does not supply them. Only hand towels and large towels are supplied. Basic toiletries are supplied on a daily basis (shampoo, conditioner, soap, and shower cap). Also, there was an iron and ironing board in our room. Housekeeping will bring it to your room upon request. However, there was a day that it was in use by the hotel. The hotel will iron your cloths at a cost. We were quoted 8 euros for a pair of pants. I would bring a travel size steamer. The air doesn't work as well hotels in the states. Be prepared. I would recommend a room that has windows on the exterior so you can open the window. There was a breeze in the evenings even in June/July.

The hotel staff far exceeded my expectations. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They also had very pleasant attitudes.

The hotel breakfast cost 16 euros/day. The breakfast fell far below by expectations. I am from the U.S. and didn't like most of the food. If it's included in your daily stay, I would go down for coffee and a pastry. Otherwise, go to a bakery. There are many close by.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with an exterior window.

Stayed here this week whilst on a business trip, and wanted somewhere deep in the city for evening sightseeing. This hotel ticks every box. Two minutes get you to the main tourist areas.
At check in the reception staff were first class, and later produced a good map and went through a quick guide to what to see and where. Nice touches were the free drink voucher and the bottle of water which was bought to the room.
There is a quirky little new swimming ( ? ) pool on the roof terrace, along with sun loungers as a nice change.
Didn't eat in the hotel at night, but breakfast was excellent each day. On check out reception staff were again very attentive, insisting on calling a taxi rather than leaving it to the guest.

Having stayed in quite a few hotels in Barcelona (always for business), I must say this one didn't really impress me. Nothing particularly wrong, just nothing exciting either! The location is good, but in everything else I would rate it as a decent 3-star, almost 4-star, hotel. People were friendly enough, though not responsive: my complaint about a clogged drain in the bathtub was ignored. The breakfast buffet covered the basics. The wifi was weak and kept on requiring that I insert password, which I found annoying. It has a nice area outside to sit for drinks. The painted facade of the building is very pretty. The room I stayed in was small but functional, of average comfort. In all, considering the amazing range of hotels on offer in Barcelona, this is an average place with no "wow" factor.

Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, location was perfect just blocks away from the plaza and Las Ramblas. Cleaners came in and cleaned all 5 days we were there. We had no problems with our stay, we'd definitely come again.

This hotel was one of the best we stayed in during our trip. The room is fantastic and very clean, the location is great and the restaurant is amazing!
The only complaint is that the walls a bit too thin and we could hear everyone walking down the hall and the water running in the pipes.
