“I wish there was a hotel like the Barcelona Catedral in every city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2009

We choose the Barcelona Catedral given its superb location, just steps from the Cathedral and nearby 4 metro stops. Our surprise was upon arrival, the hotel is central but in an ultra quiet street, couldn’t think of a better location! The staff is very friendly and attentive, upon arrival our check in was pre-prepared so that they spent their time giving recommendations on what to do, where to go, etc.

The room was great, with a fresh and modern décor, a great bed and absolutely soundproof. The bathroom is equipped with a fabulous shower.

The hotel has an interior terrace with a lounge, the ideal place to have a drink after a long day, however I highly recommend the rooftop pool, a real oasis after a hot day from where to enjoy Barcelona’s sunset

Breakfast is a must, I recommend the Catalan menu.

I wish there was a hotel like this one in every city!

Overall, this hotel is modern, clean, and hip. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a few nights during June of 2009. The rooms were refreshingly large, roomy, and clean. The pool on the roof top was pretty sizable compared to other hotels in Barcelona. The lobby was cool and retro and there were plenty of working computer terminals available to check email and browse the web. Alex at the front desk was extemely helpful with finding a great place to eat. The location of this hotel is both great and horrible at the same time. The location is great because it is located right in the heart of the gothic district which means you can easily walk to great restaurants like The Four Cats, and Caracoles, and great museums like the Picasso museum. However, the hotel location is bad for two reasons. It is very difficult to find even for the taxi drivers for one. And second, the Gothic district is the pick-pocketers headquarters so you must be on alert as soon as you leave the property which is very tiring. Be sure to wear your backpack on your front and carry as little of value as possible while exploring the Gothic district. It is full of punks who work in groups to pickpocket travelers. The use their cell phones and are very coordinated. Be very careful! I mean it!

Three computers in the lobby are free. Fast connection, nice computers, but mostly busy. wifi costs 15 euros a day.

The hotel is great otherwise. Nice location, nice rooms, nice pool but cold.

Dear Mr. Motulsky,

Thank you very much for your positive comments, such as “a great stay, nice location. Great staff, great hotel”.

Your point regarding that it is not clear enough that internet is free in the business centre but that there is a 10,70 € charge for 24 hours WIFI service, has been a good contribution for improvement, and therefore we do have already changed the text in our website.

Once again, thank you for your time and contribution. Keep on participating and travelling!!!

Best regards from Barcelona.

When I return to Barcelona, I will make a point of staying at this hotel. Lovely and clean with efficient and extremely polite staff. As I said in the title, nothing was too much trouble - free map, calling a taxi, late check-out, lunch reservation - brilliant!
Rooms were clean, cool and spacious. Most importantly, they were extremely quiet which was unusual for Barcelona!
All in all an excellent stay and i would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

Booked this for daughters birthday so this is her review!!
Trip with friends to celebrate my 21st birthday. Hotel was chosen after family had trawled through reviews on the net. Perfect choice! E-mailed hotel to request rooms near each other if possible and this was promised...and delivered! Many thanks. Reception staff were really friendly whilst checking in and always helpful if and when we required any advice. Hotel was modern, spotlessly clean and a pleasure to stay in. Rooms were spacious and the housekeeping was excellent....fresh towels and linen daily and rooms always immaculate when we returned from a busy day. Can't comment on all facilities but we did make good use of the lovely rooftop pool which was a fabulous way to relax after shopping all day! Could go on and on but basically you can't go wrong here! The location is fabulous, the hotel is lovely but most importantly we felt that we were most welcome and that the impression we left with was very important to all staff. In a city so busy with tourists it is easy for hotels to take their trade for granted. Not here! Loved it.

I highly recommend this hotel. It was centrally located yet on a quiet street just off the Square of the Barcelona Catedral. The Hotel was Modern, Trendy, Super Clean and contained all of the necessary amenities. The pool is great and the Staff super helpful!
I would certainly stay here again and refer a friend. FIVE STARS!

We are just back from a 3night stay in Barcelona Catedral Hotel. Everything was perfect from the first to the last minute. Welcome is smiling, rooms are clean, big and modern, breakfast is just amazing, roof pool is so good after a full walking day (!) and the advices we got from the desk officer for good and typical restaurants were just perfect. Looking forward to coming again ! Merci à toute l'équipe de l'hotel pour ce beau séjour. Muchas gracias a todos para este perfecto momento ! Thanks to all for such a welcome !
