Reviewed 23 January 2014

My friend and I stayed at the Catalonia Ramblas hotel for a long weekend in September. We chose it for its central location, and outdoor pool. The rooms are good, quite big and comfortable with nice bathrooms, and a shower. They’re not luxurious, but they are clean and functional. Ours looked out over the pool area. The pool is nice; plenty of towels and loungers, and the wicker seats just down a few steps from the pool are really comfy and private for lounging in. As the pool isn’t a rooftop pool, you are surrounded by other buildings, and there are no nice views of the city, but it still gets plenty of sun.

We had arranged late checkout in advance, but a cleaner came to our room early and woke us. This was annoying, as we had the do not disturb sign on the door.

My phone was stolen from the pool area too, and the hotel didn’t seem to care. I know my belongings are my responsibility, but it’s not what I expect to happen by the pool in a 4* hotel.

The hotel is a little rough around the edges, but it’s in a central location, and the rates were reasonable too so for those reasons I would recommend it.

We stayed at the establishment between the 28th and 30th December 2013. Reservations were made through Bookings.com
The check in procedure was a nightmare. We were told that there is no reservation at the hotel and we should check in with their sister hotel. After I raised my voice, the reservation miraculously appeared on system. Despite booking a non smoking room and requesting one at check in, we were still given a smoking room. To add insult to injury, the room we were given had a window facing other rooms and opened into an enclosed area. The next day I tried to raise my concerns with management, but the manager was busy on a call. I spoke to who appears to be her assistant and requested that she raise my complaint with management and revert to me, which she failed to do. I also advised that I will not be having breakfast the day I am checking out and that amount be credited to my account. This was not done as agreed. All in all a bad experience.
Breakfast was good and the the hotel is situated in a excellent area, The bus to the airport is a 5 minute walk. If i had been given a non smoking room at the outset, my review would have been more positive.

Booked this hotel for a 3 day weekend break as we had booked to go see Barcelona at the Nou Camp. The hotel is in a perfect location, right at the top of the rambles and within walking distance of 2 metro stations, supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants. The rooms were spacious and cleaned daily. The staff were friendly and very helpful with any questions we had.Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going on a city break to Barcelona!

Having just checked out I am still seated in the lovely bar of this seriously good hotel, having a coffee
Firstly the location is great, one minutes walk from the top of la ramblas, and a one minute walk to each of two metro stations.
I chose this hotel for the last four nights, of a @30 day trip, a bit of final luxury, and it is that, the premises is of seven floors, 5 up , and two down, and runs the depth of the block, the ground floor, public areas, are many, spacious, nearly new, and very tasteful.
The rooms are generous in size, very good amenities, and a great, big, bathroom, with double shower, full size tub, and the usualls
But possibly the best thing, is the spa, suite on level -2, it is free, for guests, staffed, with towels lockers etc, and comprises, a large spa, with reclined(3) or seated (4) jets, a free swim area, a large over spa water massage jet, and flat water jet, also a lounge area, water leg massage area, sauna, steam room, cyclonic shower, and others. It's brilliant to wind down after a long day walking, working or anything.
Also, extra's pricing, where usually applicable, eg bar, room service meals, etc are priced very attractively, eg cheap
All in all, a great place, and possibly the second best I have ever stayed at. Easily 4 star, no complaints
