Placa Catalunya is less than 10 minutes away on foot and is the main pick-up point for all three tourist bus routes and the site of much activity.

Nice stay.

Centrally situated. Staff present 24/7. Bathroom.
The stay was good but we found bedbugs and the staff was not interested at all. They had not cleaned under the beds and when we made them aware they only cleaned under one of the beds.

Nice City Hotel near Ramblas, friendly stuff

Friendly staff, close to Ramblas, good service
Friendly staff, close to Ramblas, good service . first we got a room toword the backyard, nearly no daylight. Then we could change to 4th flour with a sunny view over the roofs. Better to upgrade for superieur room class.

Perfect location, affordable,clean and confortable

Great location, comfortable room, affordable rate.
Brief, but good and pleasant. I will return. Room was comfortable for European standards, and the bathroom clean with outstanding shower. An excellent location in downtown Barcelona.

Fair - only asset is good location for value.

Good location.
Good location but given some unpleasant experiences, I will probably not come back: 1. Phone in room was not working; front desk staff was clearly unhappy to help stating that I can use the public phone. I had to insist that room phones are standard and I will have to make several personal calls. Phone was fixed after I insisted. 2. Front desk staff was not very friendly and quite intimidating to approach. 3. Very poor insulation between rooms. You can hear conversations, actions and doors closing and opening. 4. TV remote control was barely functional but after my experience with the room phone, I thought it was not worth my energy to speak to front desk again about this.

Absolutely amazing and very enjoyable

Friendly staff, very comfortable and clean rooms, a good variety of food for breakfast
We cannot express enough what a wonderful holiday we had, the Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. Our room was serviced each day and our towels changed, although the room wasn't huge it was perfectly adequate for the 4 days we stayed. There were lots of really good Restaurants and Tapas bars close by with very reasonably priced food, it was most of the drinks that were expensive in most places. The Hotel was convenient to the majority of the attractions, we were yards away from La Rambla, and a tube station was very close. We got a Taxi transfer to and from the Airport which only took us about 20 minutes in busy rush hour traffic. We would strongly recommend both Barcelona and Hotel Principal for a great short break.

Amazing location near La Rambla

Location, Location, Value
Very convenient location just off La Rambla about halfway between the port and placa Catalunya. Although the Hotel Principal can be classed as a mid range budget establishment, the level of facilities is high. The standard double rooms are a reasonable size (reasonable, remembering you are in European) with a balcony and floor to ceiling double doors to the outside. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is available at 12€. Beds,unfortunatly are European hotel standard and on the hard side
