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.
