“OUT OF THIS WORLD!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

From start to finish this hotel didn't fail to impress. Had an amazing flight - got the train 3 stops from the airport to Sants Estacio and saw our hotel from the exit of the station.

Got to reception and was greeted by Georgina - she was so friendly and polite. We asked if we had a nice view from the room, we booked a junior suite and she upgraded us for free to a family suite. It was on the 20th floor room 2001 and it was AMAZING!! We were shocked at the size. It was massive room with 2 TVs, 3 chairs in living room, 2 mini bars and fridges, 2 toilets, 3 sinks a massive queen size bed and amazing windows around the whole room. Literally has been the best hotel I have stayed in EVER! We were shocked at how much space we had - it was bigger than our London flat. We were given robes and slippers to walk around in and there was enough towels for the two of us 6 times over. Lovely toiletries - shaver, comb, moisturiser! Room came with a hairdryer, iron and coffee maker - we had to ask for a kettle but usually one is provided with the room. Were v impressed.

The reception staff always gave us good advice and good directions - suggestion of where to eat locally and information about getting home (what platform from the station to the airport). Customer service and space is what makes this hotel! If you want to be in the heart of Barcelona near Las Ramblas this hotel is about 20min metro away.... But it is close to Camp Nou and the Montjuic Palace and Magic Fountains so I liked the location. It was away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to sites.

After the first day we came back to the room the find a note from the hotel wishing us a happy anniversary and they left some complimentary champagne. This was so nice and made our stay even more wonderful. On the second evening we came back to chocolates on our pillows and towels on the floor laid out for us. Was a really nice touch. When sleeping we had all the curtains open so we woke up in time for the sunrise at 8am was beautiful. Have the holiday blues because of this view!

The restaurant was also amazing and had great views. The starter and desert was amazing. The steak for main however was a bit expensive for what it was. Other mains looked a lot nicer so order something else if possible... As a last note, we wanted to stay forever - thanks Torre Catalunya!! We will be back whenever I next come back to Barca. Gracias.

Room Tip: Try upgrade to room with a view - it's worth it!!!!

large rooms with all 4* standard, with a great view. as it has twenty something levels, there are great views from the rooms over the city. gorgeous 360° view from breakfast room on the highest level / roof top. good wifi, was inclusive in my rate.
direct metro connection to city center (5-10min) and airport (30min). 30minutes to new fair/congress center / fira. so its a good location for business and for visiting the sights if you have time.

Room Tip: book upper floors - the view from bed over the city is the small additional charge definetly worth.

we visited this hotel on the 4th - 8th November 2013.
We upgraded to the junior suite on the 18th floor.
We arrived early from our flight at 12pm and were informed the room would be ready at 2pm but we could leave any luggage at the hotel and have a look around the city.
We went for lunch in the shopping centre which was a 10 minute walk away on the receptionist recommendation, there was a good variety for a small centre and we enjoyed our tapas lunch which was very reasonable and good quality.
Upon checking in we were given a map, bus and metro info and recommendations on places to visit which was great.
The room was a good size and clean, we had a queen size bed, robes slippers etc, a sofa bed, tv area, lots of storage, hi fi , iron and board, hairdryer aircon etc.
The bathroom was huge with 2 sinks, a separate walk in shower, w/c and bath with shower.
the view was ok for a city however I think the corner room would have had an amazing view of the park nearby, we could see the museum and communications tower and at night the view was lovely.
We had tea coffee and a mini bar in the room and found for the price the extra space was good value.
The room was cleaned daily and you could choose to have the linin and towels changed daily.
The hotel was always clean and had staff on hand for any queries and they were very well informed of the local area, transport and prices.
We had booked tickets to the football and had them delivered to the hotel and they were great at keeping us informed of times etc.
We ate at another restaurant on the recommendation of the staff and again it was great value, good quality and near by.
We had hoped to use the spa and eat at the panoramic restaurant in the hotel but forgot to book and missed out unfortunately.

Overall the hotel was a great base, the location is perfect for shopping, football and visiting the attractions, it has good transport links and the staff are very knowledgeable.
It is clean and maintained to a good standard.
If we visit Barcelona again this will certainly be our first choice hotel.

Room Tip: I would upgrade if you can I didn't see a standard room but the view and space is worth the mone...

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 ...
