“the BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

we stayed for three nights, and we are so happy we did. pick a high floor, and include breakfast in your reservation. the views from the top are wonderful. the breakfast is the best. the service is great. we were in Europe for 16 nights, they were the best.

What can i say from start to finish this place was amazing !!! took my Girlfriend here as part of a 10 day European tour for her birthday. ordered the romance package and it didnt fail , on arrival to our room we had a lunch and chocolates with champagne waiting for us , the bed had black satin sheets on it with rose petals everywhere and a box of goodies. We was on the 21st floor in a suite. When we arrived the curtains we drawn as we had candles but when we opened them wow what a view across the whole of Barcelona just breath taking and panoramic. This Suite was clean modern and extremely spacious with great wash stuff such as Molton & Brown which is not cheap .We had breakfast every morning with our deal well worth it again for the view and buffet so keep you going all day. We had dinner there aswell the view at night is just as good great service and a great meal . Location is fantastic close to all bus and train links and the hop on hop off bus just on the corner best way to get around. Cant praise this hotel enough will defo recommend to friends and will be back here if we stay in beautiful Barcelona again 10 out of 10 in my book well done Torre Catalunya for making our stay special.

Room Tip: Get higher floor views amazing , well worth getting the breakfast .

We had a good stay at Gran Hotel Torre. Our room faced the hills and you could see for miles. Nice comfy big bed, love the bathroom and our room was roomy. They serve good breakfast, we haven't included it when we reserved our room, but they had it on special when we checked in.Convenient location from the train station, basically across the road.One afternoon, I walked from the hotel to La Rambla to take in the sights and have a feel of the place, stopping at shops along the way. Good experience. When we checked out the Concierge ask us if we're taking a taxi and I told him we're taking the train to the airport and he said to take care. That was very kind of him.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a good room with a view, higher floors. Sometimes they do have specials, so if you boo...

Got a good 4 night deal via otel.com for around €70 per night room only. You can buy breakfast on check in at €13 per day (reduced from 18) which I did and found to be good value and with interesting panoramic views from the rooftop restaurant. My room was on the 6 th floor of around 22 but had no view as it backed on to a car park. Room was comfortable but with an odd unpleasant smell wafted in through the drains or air con at irregular intervals. Not enough to cause a problem but never figured out where it was from. Downstairs bar served food but nothing special (head behind the hotel for a choice of reasonably priced eateries). Friendly service. Happy to go back ...

I've stayed at this hotel before but I got a particularly good deal on Lastminute.com so decided to stay here again. The hotel put us on the 16th floor in a corner room. The views were amazing, the size of the room was excellent. It even had a wet room! Staff in reception were friendly and helpful. The hotel is opposite Sants station (handy if you're coming from the airport via train). It's just up the road from the famous Barcelona fountains and very close to two metro stations. We walked most places but the Metro is very easy to use. I recommend getting a T10 which is 10 single journeys on one ticket.
All in all this is a class hotel and I'd recommend it to anyone coming to this fantastic city.

Room Tip: As others have said get a high up room, in a corner if available.

We stayed here for 2 nights and was an amazing experience. The staff were friendly especially the bar staff! The visual resturant had breathtaking views. With sants train station across the road with easy links to all parts of the city and and only walk to the magic fountains, the location couldn't be better, see u again soon!!

Been staying at this hotel only for 2 nights and was really impressed with room size - unusually big for Europe for this money. Was very convenient for us, as we were traveling from Valencia by train and got to our room only 10 min after train arrival including check-in.
Very friendly stuff at the reception. Metro station is in just 2min walk, so getting to city centre is no problem at all.
Was same convenient on the way back – only 5min to get to the railway station and only 3.8 euro for airport train ticket which took us there in 30min. Nice bar downstairs, but very uninhabited.
