When planning our first trip abroad for our Honeymoon, it was a daunting task to try and find a place to stay in Barcelona for the few days we would be there before our cruise departed. I turned to trusted travel resources for recommendations and I was not disappointed! One of the first hotels that American Express recommended to me was the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya. From the initial pictures I saw the hotel looked beautiful and was in a convenient location.once I jumped on trip advisor, I knew this was the hotel we should stay at!
From the moment we arrived, it was a wonderful experiences the front desk staff spoke great English and were helpful and accommodating in every way. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 11:30 am after flying over night from the US, so to make us more comfortable they gave us a voucher for 2 drinks in Ecklectik. We used that the next day for Sangria and it was delicious.
When we were finally able to get into our room, it was stunning. Sweeping views of the city that made for gorgeous evening sights and even more amazing mornings. We loved waking up to see Barcelona at our feet for the 3 days we were there. There are a large variety of amenities and because we were in one of the suites, the water was complimentary and they were very accommodating to all requests... Even when we needed a converter to charge our electronics. One of the best surprises actually came on the first day of our trip when we returned from a long day of exploring and they had left a bottle of champagne and two glasses in our room with a welcome - Happy Honeymoon - note. We greatly enjoyed this sweet surprise.
Overall, we can't say enough good things about this hotel. From the staff, to the accommodations, to the views and location, this was a perfect start to our honeymoon trip. We can't wait to come back in a few years and stay again at this amazing resort!
