“Great location, staff, room, will return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

When I come back to Barcelona, I will stay here. The location in the old Gothic section is 30 seconds from the Cathedral. Very nice room, bathroom water pressure was great, slept like a baby. Room was very modern - the whole hotel seems very new. We did not use the pool on the roof but it looked neat. This was the best hotel I stayed in in Spain.

One complaint - the tub was slippery and when we asked for a rubber mat, they said they did not have them, and suggested a towel. If this was the USA, lawyers would have a field day suing the hotel when a senior falls. I am 50+ and I darn near broke my neck getting in an out of the tub.

I stayed at the Barcelona Catedral with my 15-year-old daughter for a short break in May. Everything at the hotel was excellent: comfortable room with tea- making facilities, friendly and helpful staff and very good breakfasts. The location is ideal for visiting the Gothic quarter and the roof pool is great to relax in after a long day. I would recommend this hotel without reserve and plan to return with my husband and son.

Room Tip: The only unpleasant surprise was the late night rubbish collection on the first night - after that...

Excellent location in the middle of the city but in a back street and by the Plaza Nova. The personnel extremely courteous. The breakfast is half buffet and half things you must order ( and reorder if you can eat that much...).It was an excellent way to start the morning. We were in the 5th floor room 513. The bathroom was nice and adequate but not big.We had 2 beds side by side with good mattresses but (we are a couple) if you moved too much there went the beds!It should be simple to arrange a brake or adjoining the bed legs so they don't move!
The hotel has a pool but bathrobe and slippers just on request and not standard. Even though the room was kept clean still the maintenance was below standard.
Their Sunday morning free guided Gothic tour was excellent (1 hour +/-).

Room Tip: Go as high as possible

Our room here was surprisingly large, very modern and stylish, and quiet. The breakfast is huge, but a bit overpriced. The location could not be better; adjacent to the Cathedral, near la Rambla, decent metro connections, about a quarter mile from the Placa de Catalonya.. The staff was extremely helpful. There is a nice little pool and outdoor lounge on the roof. We were very happy with this choice.

Room Tip: We were in one of only 2 rooms on the fifth floor. Very private; very quiet; nice view.

Myself and 6 friends are just back from a 3 night stay in this hotel. Overall we were very impressed. I was in a triple room which isn't a triple room, its a double room with a camp/cot bed. This is my only complaint, we should have been informed of this in advance as we were led to believe it was a large triple room with 3 proper beds. Although it was fine, we had just about enough room. The hotel is very modern and bathrooms in particular are large with great fixtures, especially shower! We didn't eat in bar/restaurant. Staff were friendly and location is excellent. I'd recommend it. Probably a bit pricey but you're paying for location. Also very clean.

Room Tip: We faced out to square atn back and it was surprisingly quiet.

Perfect stay at the hotel, nice service, clean rooms, good breakfast...
The hotel is located in the centre of barcelona (near the cathedral, restaurants, shops..), perfect.
The hotel is very clean and has good sized rooms, mini bar and even a kettle which is a bonus.great shower and lots of goodies.
In summer you can use the pool on the roof. Great.
