“Great position for touring Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Hotel Barcelona Catedral is an excellent hotel located only steps from the Catedral itself, however its location on a small side street provides a welcomed respite from the noise and congestion of Catedral Square. Each hotel staff member we encountered was very helpful, efficient, courteous and spoke excellent English. The hotel décor is modern and comfortable and we were very pleased with the ample space in our king bedroom. As others have noted, the hotel breakfast is expensive, however there are numerous eating options within a block or two of the hotel -- serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Arriving early, no problem -- they are happy to store your luggage for you until your room is ready. Have a very early flight to catch as we did, our wake up call was at 4:00am sharp and our taxi was waiting for us as requested ay 4:30. This is a well run hotel! Oh, don't miss the attractive and lovely Infinity pool on the top floor -- very nice spot for a relaxing time. This is now our go to hotel while visiting Barcelona.

Just returned recently from Barcelona with our two adult children. The location of the hotel is in walking distance of all the sights, restaurants, and shopping. The hotel staff are extremely helpful. We stayed in an attached room (2 rooms with a connecting corridor). The rooms were great.

The restaurant in the hotel is overpriced, but there are many great restaurants within walking distance. In the morning, we would get a coffee and croissant from the Chocolate Box, which is located right next door to the hotel (great price and delicious).

The hotel offers two free walking tours a week. We went on the Wednesday night walking tour. It was fantastic - a great way to learn some history of Barcelona.

We had a very nice stay at this PERFECT location. The staff were nice, the room was large with a even larger bathroom and our room was very quiet. I couldn't believe that we could find a hotel with this type of peace and quiet right in the middle of the bustling Gothic quarter. We go lucky picking this one out. We would go out shopping or to a restaurant, then stop by the room for a quick break and then go back out. It was also easy to find, because all you had to do was look for the tall Cathedral tower which is right nearby on the old square. The only reason we did not rate this a five, was because they did not offer a fair breakfast option. Charging us around $50 for two for breakfast felt kind of insulting. They should at least have a reasonable "quick" and less expensive option. But, there's actually a nice little pastry/coffee/sweets place right on the same block, so we did fine. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends. The location and rooms cannot be beat!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room, and they gave us a very nice large one facing the back. Crazy view of the...

Dear GUest,
We would like to thank you for rating your stay and review it as a very nice stay.
We really apreciate your comments and we are very glad that you are pleased with our service.
We would like to clarify that our breakfast is 18.50€ per person and it is à la cart breakfast, that is slow food served in a unique athmosphere or in our Catedral Terrace Lounge, and away from the small cafeterias close to us that are very noisy.
We really hope of welcoming you back very soon.
Best regards

Great quiet location off the busy gothic square. Good sized rooms. Lovely roof top pool. Good bakery next door which also sells delicious ice creams. 2 min walk to hop on hop off bus routes. Only downside was my husband had to clear our bath plug as it was filled with hair from previous guests!

Room Tip: 5th floor, near the roof top pool.

Loved this hotel! in the middle of the Gothic section of Barcelona. We arrived late and Oriole - phonetic spelling - was the perfect host. Our room was on the 3rd floor, keeping in mind that the ground floor is 0.

The Gothic Catedral was a few steps away. Charming cafes in the square stayed open late serving strong coffee and sweet treats, as well as real food. The square is a magical place with hustlers throwing colored lights in the air, musicians entertaining, Roman walls, narrow passages and museums to explore.

A short walk away is the gorgeous Plaza Catalunya, a major transportation hub for the metro, buses and tours. I could have spent the entire week in this golden area. Of course I didn't but I could have. So location, location, location

The room was quaint, luxurious (complete with cappuccino, refrigerator, easy chair, desk, comfortable bed and internet capable for most of the week. Unfortunately they had 'router' problems later in the week. But we were in Barcelona! Who had time to waste on the Internet? We could still use it on the ground floor sitting in the marvelous round chair. Hotel has a restaurant/bar but with so many places to choose from, we didn't have time to eat there.

DON"T MISS the FREE Ghost Walk at 10 PM and the FREE Walk on Sunday. The guides (Juan and Sergio) were informative, humorous and told us some interesting stories about the area. Also check out the smallish but beautiful infinity pool on the roof.

The room's window opened at the top, which was perfect for checking the weather, and faced an apartment building. Curtains were optional making people watching fun. I just loved the area, the hotel and the staff. Would stay there again without hesitation. The week flew by.

Room Tip: I only had one room and it was the best - Room 308. I'd stay there again.

We stayed at this centrally located hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is just off the busy cathedral plaza, so it feels a bit like an oasis. Our king room was comfortable and the bathroom wasn't too small. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out how to work the shower, but a staff member promptly came up to explain it. In general, the staff was terrific. I had been on the waiting list for a near-impossible reservation at El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, but with one phone call, they helped us secure a table. We especially enjoyed all of the common areas, from the lobby to the deck/terrace off the restaurant to the rooftop terrace. This is a comfortable, convenient hotel with great staff. We would gladly stay here again.

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.
