We stayed at the Gran hotel Torre Catalunya for five days after returning from a week cruise on the Epic. I chose the hotel based on Trip advisor reviews and once again I could not have been more pleased. The hotel has an excellent location across from the Sans train station and metro. It is just a short walking distance from many restaurants, Plaza de Espana and a remodeled bull ring that is now a shopping center.
The rooms are large and very luxurious with marble floors and modern wood cabinetry and tons of storage space. The hotel has easy to connect free wi-fi.The bathroom has both a huge shower and a tub as well as a separate room with the toilet and bidet. We had a regular view of the neighborhood because we did not pay for an upgrade but some of the rooms on higher floors have spectacular views.
The most amazing thing we found was the friendly staff. From the day we arrived they provided suggestions of a Tapas Festival and how to get there. They helped us with the internet connection to purchase tickets for La Sagrada Familia. One late night when I realized we were missing a credit card, they helped us call The bank to cancel it. We realized on the way to the airport that we left an item behind. The hotel staff located it and made sure that it was mailed back to us in Miami
We were extremely happy with this hotel and regret that we did not have the time to eat in their roofttop restaurant. We certainly need to go back . This was the trip of a lifetime and we are so happy that the excellent team at this hotel helped make it so!,,,.
