Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya
Ranked #101 of 518 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after a Mediterranean cruise. Since we disembarked rather early, (8am) we thought we would just check our bags with the hotel, and get on the HoHo bus. We were pleasantly surprised when they kindly checked us in and gave us our room key. Such a welcoming front desk staff. Georgina suggested we upgrade to a room on an upper floor, and we agreed! For about 12Euro/night, we had an amazing view of the city on the 18th floor.
The hotel is across the street from a train station, and within walking distance to lots of great restaurants.
The room is spacious, and we clean. We had absolutely no complaints with our stay at all. We would definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled as a couple

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for three nights during a two week trip to Europe. Having found a deal on the hotel's website for a top-floor suite for under $200 per night, we decided to splurge rather than stay in the center of town- and it was worth it! The suite was enormous and luxuriously appointed with huge windows overlooking the entire Barcelona skyline. The view was nothing short of incredible. The bedroom was in the corner with windows in both walls. Laying in bed and watching the skyline was a true highlight of our trip. The bed was incredibly comfortable too. Even though the hotel is out of the center, it was a short 15 minute metro ride to the center of town or a very pleasant 30 minute walk. The train station is right across the street so getting to and from the airport on public transit is a breeze - and costs under 4 euros!

We took advantage of the spa circuit on one of our days with cost around 7 euros per person. There is a small pool with jets (though not as satisfying as a true hot tub), steam rooms and saunas. While it was worth the money, we were a bit disappointed that there wasn't a traditional jacuzzi/hot tub, but it was still quite relaxing overall.

In all, I am not only satisfied, but blown away by the experience and the value of this hotel and highly recommend it for anyone visiting Barcelona and desiring to stay in a luxurious oasis away from the bustle of the center that remains easily accessible, day or night.

Room Tip: Suite 1901 in the corner has fantastic day and night views of Monjuic, Sagrada Familia and the entir...

We chose this hotel for its excellent location for a city trip. At arrival, we stepped off the Renfe commuter train and within minutes we were settled into our comfy hotel room (type 'executive') at the 16th floor. The view was simply amazing. The next day we hopped on and off the metro train and when we were tired, we came back to take a rest in our surprisingly quiet room. Also the bathroom was very spacious with separate shower and bath. The sink was very clean, the towels nicely folded. The airco was a little bit noisy, but all in all, there really was nothing to complain about ;-) We recommend this place to everybody, also people with limited mobility.
In the vicinity you will find some nice parks such as Espanya Industrial & Joan Miro. The magic fountain of Montjuic & shopping mall Las Arenas are at walking distance.

My husband and I stayed here before a cruise and again after the cruise ended. We found the hotel to be very centrally located from downtown Barcelona, the airport and port. We rode train from the airport to the hotel. The train station is right across the street from the hotel so made for easy way to get there from the airport and a little less expensive than taxi. The staff was friendly, respectful and helpful. The room was clean, large and had fresh look to it. The breakfast is a must...great selection with a 360 view of Barcelona. We requested room service for food and received quick service. Bar had a variety of foods to select from for lunch and dinner. We highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here as a couple in March 2012... If I go back to Barcelona, I will most definitely stay here again. The rooms were very nice, clean, and modern-looking. Our room essentially had floor to ceiling windows on 2 of the walls, as well as a large bathroom, which even had a bidet. The only knock on our room was that the AC didn't always get as cool as we wanted it. However, it wasn't a big deal. The wi-fi was an extra charge, but was negligible (we stayed 4 nights, used it all the time, and paid about $12). The hotel also offers a variety of services (massage, manicure/pedicure, etc.) there is a restaurant on the top floor, but we did not eat there. The location is also perfect. The hotel is literally right across the street from the main metro station. There is also a grocery store right next door to the hotel. While we did not really explore the area around the hotel, the metro station across the street can get you to any part of the city to see whatever you want. We were also able to book this hotel relatively cheap. This is definitely the place to stay if you are heading to or from Madrid and do not want to worry about catching a taxi or lugging your luggage from train to train, as the high speed trains arrive and depart from the station across the street.

Room Tip: Higher floors offer better views, but cost a little extra
