Hotel Catalunya

Reviewed 20 September 2017

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in September 2017. The location in the heart of the Bari Gotic just off the Ramblas is excellent, and the room was very clean. On the negative side, the rooms are small, minimally furnished and very basic. We had a double room, but a glance through open doors at the single rooms suggested that they were closer to monastic cells than desirable hotel rooms. Beds were hard, pillows were negligible, and there was a lot of noise from nearby bars, restaurants, and businesses (perhaps unavoidable in such a busy area, but beware if noise keeps you from sleeping). In brief, we would try to stay elsewhere if we were to return to Barcelona.

This was an absolute gem of a find. It wins my personal award for most beautiful and stylish bathroom. If you are in Barcelona, this is the place to stay. The location is central to everything and it was a delight to come back to my hotel.

This is is a small hotel very close to placa catalunya and the Rambla. The rooms are quite small but the beds are ok and the aircon is working (absolutely necessary during my visit), Don´t expect a stunning view from your hotel window... Rather no view at all.The breakfast is on an adjacent hotel and is ok (very good coffee). A major advantage is that there´s no traffic outside, hence not much disturbance during your sleeping hours. Even though the rooms are small the cleaning was immaculate and (most off) the staff was very helpful. The WiFi was good. All in all, worth the money.

Room Tip: Avoid single rooms on top floor, no view at all...

I chose the hotel because of the location. As others also says, it is very good location for all. The price is for it. Hotel itself, clean, good hot shower, all sppedy at the reception, etc,.I say all points are cleared as standard. Air comdition was strong enough a little noisy and seems kept waking my boyfriend up. I also recognised some noise from fuse box in the room. A little annoyed that they charge for the key for safe box in the room per day if you want to use it!

It was my first time in Barcelona and I was looking for a place clean, in the core of the city ,near The Ramblas and not awfully expensive. This was the right decision. Perfect location, extremely clean,which was a surprise considering how dirty some hotels are!!! My first hand experience was great and I really enjoyed my days in this hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable and the noise is not a problem due to the double glass windows.

Hotel is very easy to find, 5 min walk from Plaza Catalunya. Staff very nice, rooms are simple but VERY clean! Beds are small (typical European hard little bed) Free WIFI, prime location! Right across the street there is a place that makes the best prosciutto sandwiches!!! Will stay here again next time I'm in Barcelona.

Lovely little hotel located just off la ramblas, close to placa catalunya. We arrived before check in time (1pm) but were able to leave our cases and come back later. Room is basic but did the job, clean, beds made daily and towels changed. We were on 4th floor which had a small balcony overlooking the street below. Nice hotel
