Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya
Ranked #101 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 13 November 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights on our first visit to spain, the location is not centrally located to the tourist sites but it is a great location for taking the subway, train and hop on/hop off bus around the city. It was great to be able to take the metro from the airport to Sants then walk out and see our hotel across the street. There are cafes around the block as well as inside of the Barcelona-Sants station, there are lots of travelers walking around so it is pretty safe at night .
The staff was pleasant, the rooms were pretty standard unless you upgrade. We upgraded to a room with a view only because it was the" only" room they had ready , it cost $12 euros/day for the upgrade and it was worth it for the extra comfort and view.
I would highly recommend this hotel although there are several other hotels around the Sants station that are a bit more cost effective for long term trips.

Room Tip: Rooms 2117 and 2119 (may be the same on all floors) had a separate little alcove and door so it woul...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. We booked a superior room and I requested a room on a high floor which we got. The rooms are spacious and clean with big beds which are very comfortable. The views from the room are stunning. When we arrived in the room the staff had laid rose petals on the bed and we had a complimentary bottle of Cava and chocolate covered strawberries. The staff were really friendly and answered any questions we had about transport/sightseeing. We also used the spa which was nice. It is fairly small but we were the only ones using it so felt like a private spa! The hotel is in a great location for heading into the centre.
We ate in the hotel restaurant which was amazing! The food was lovely and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend this.
All in all this was a fantastic trip and if we came back to Barcelona, we would definitely stay at this hotel.

I had been traveling throughout Europe for a month, and stayed at 7 different hotels by then, in several countries. Just when I had given up on finding a decent hotel and reset my expectations to low levels, I discovered this hotel. Not only its location is convenient to any other point of the city, right across the train station, but you feel the difference at the moment you interact with the front desk staff. They are very pleasant, polite, helpful and considered. They truly make you feel welcome and show a genuine desire to ensure you have a pleasant stay. When I entered the room, wouuu! An amazing view of the city; lots of closet space; a bed so comfortable you don’t want to get up; and a big bathroom also with a view. This had the feeling of an Executive Suite but at an incredible low price of $139/night. OMG! Compared to the $400/night lousy hotels in France and Germany, this was hard to believe. And the breakfast… Out of this world: lots of buffet choices, with a variety of fresh fruits, juices, meats, cheeses, and even superior champagne for your mimosas. I can’t say enough of this place without sounding like a commercial. I even cancelled my trip to Madrid to enjoy Barcelona for 3 more days. Interesting how a hotel could influence your impression of a city. I definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to stay again on my next visit to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a high-floor room to get better views of the city. Include breakfast on the rat...

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is quite good for the variety and very good for the quality, but standard rooms are really standard. Even if they are very big, they are also quite old (television, lights, furniture and especially the bathroom) and also the lobby and the exterior are not so "new style". But it is a good choice if you want a cheap and very clean 4* hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights, with a room on the 17th floor. The 'superior' room has stunning views over the city. The room was clean, and spacious with a large, very well equipped bathroom. All the staff were helpful and friendly. One of the best aspects is the access, being right beside the trainline from the airport and connecting into the metro. All in all an extremely enjoyable experience.

Catching the train from the airport it is so cheap and easy to get to, it is opposite the train station and a one minute walk to the "barbeque bus", the hop on hop off bus, which is a great way to get the lie of the land.
We checked in for one night before our Med cruise.
The desk staff were delightful and the rooms cool, modern and stylish.
We caught the metro train to the centre of Barcelona and walked around the sites. The next day we booked the barbeque bus, saw beautiful Barcelona, wnet back to our hotel, grabbed our bags and jumped back on the barbeque bus which dropped us 50 metres from the port/cruise bus - that was a great investment.
I thought I would be disappointed with the locatoin (ie it is not in the trendy part of Barcelona) but I was wrong.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the city, not the building next door.
