A great hotel near Montjuic”

Spacious room, friendly staff, great location

my wife and i stayed for 2 nights at catalonia barcelona plaza, and liked it so much we will stay there on the way back. the rooms were spacious and clean with a great bathroom, for 80 usd a night! the location is right on top of the catalunya metro stop, a 2 stop trip to las ramblas. we found great food without toursists in poble sec just next door, and i went running up montjuic twice. the downside is that even though its a non-smoking room, it did smell a little like smoke. we told the desk staff and they tried to switch rooms, but hey, it's spain, all the rooms smell like smoke. the pool is really nice, but pretty small, and the gym is non-existent, but we had a great time!

Great hotel”

We were more than happy with this hotel and we have been to Barcelona a few times now. The metro is right outside the door and/or you can walk to some of the attractions. Taxis were outside the hotel 24/7 and also the bus stops to get into the centre or airport were located just across the road. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooftop terrace bar and swimming pool are a great bonus and certainly made our stay much nicer. Only disappointment was there were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but the Spanish don't really do tea in the morning by tradition, that is an English thing! We did ask for a kettle though and got one but they didn't bring us any cups or tea bags, just the kettle! Breakfast was excellent too, all you could eat for €10. Definitely would stay here again.

Dear Marisol, Thank you for your comments about the experience at Catalonia Barcelona Plaza. I hope you had a memorable stay with us and we take note of your opinion about the kettles in the rooms. I look forward to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Lourdes Sitjá, General Manager.

Nice comfortable rooms and bathrooms

my wife and i recently stayed at this hotel. it is well situated in placa espana and is right oppositeq a magnificent new shopping mall with restaurants and trendy shops. we were warmly received and found the rooms to be spotlessly clean, modern and adequately spacious. the new bathrooms were beautifully appointed and had toilets, bidet, bath and overhead showere. we had a wonderful breakfast the following day. other than the fact that it is not situated at las ramblas which is a short taxi or bus ride away, we thoroughly recommend this to any traveller visiting barcelona. we also had free wifi which worked perfectly in the rooms and lobby's.

Catalonia Plaza Espana Review”

Clean environment, spacious rooms, pool on roof
small exercise facility, average dining

The hotel is overall a good value, but despite it being stated they offered exercise facilities it turned out that they were quite small with limited equipment. The pool outdoors on the roof, however, was quite nice. The dining facilities were quite average, but there are a lot of dining options around Barcelona and the hotel's location is nice and also offers access to most of the other areas of the city as there is a subway station right outside the entrance to the hotel. Overall the quality of the stay was satisfactory.

Big rooms

Wonderful stay and right in the heart of the city. We only stayed for one night but it was great since the room is quite big. They will offer you an option to book a room in front with free water and a cookie so that you can view the fountain show at night (in front of the hotel) for about 10 euros but we felt we don't need it because you can just go out and see it for free. The hotel is right smack in plaza espanya so handy for stops on both bus and metro.

Strategic location

Hotel location is right in front of Plaza Espanya, 2 minutes walk from metro station. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel to catch a bus to and fro Barcelona El Prat Station. Hotel lobby is quite big and grand. Room size in particular is quite spacious. There is no complimentary drinking water bottles given though. Flat TV with international news channel, adequate for me.

Conveniently located and clean:a good base”

The staff were professional and polite: the hotel is right at the air porter and is located right between the airport and the city centre.

I appreciated the desk staff; the staff I spoke to were quite fluent in three languages and were able to resolve a booking problem quickly and professionally. The rooms are very standard but they're large and comfortable. I have stayed here three times; the first time I complained about the cleanliness and did not think this hotel was good value for the price. However, that last two times I've been here the standards have improved considerable. This hotel is good value considering the very professional staff, the cleanliness and the location close to the air-porter bus and major metro routes. I will use this hotel again.
