    Wonderful!”

    I have stayed here with my 14 years old son. Our stay was a huge success. The location is very convenient, we used a lot the bus. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The stuff were very helpful and welcoming. They helped with whatever question we had. We had an issue with the water pressure and even that was addressed immediately. We had breakfast at the hotel, which was varied and tasty. In this neighborhood you may find nice restaurants and cafes, and less corded then the center. The swimming pool is small but we haven’t used it. To conclude, next time in Barcelona, we will choose again the Catalonia Born because of all those many advantages and the value for money.

    Great location”

    Pool is about the size of a large bath so kinda glad it wasn't hot enough to swim. Paid a decent amount for this room, so was a little disappointed when we arrived that we were put right next to the elevator, asked to be moved and were then placed in a room where the ventilation was broken in the bathroom so the place smelled musty. Gave up and lived with it. Your experience might be better?

    Great Place ”

    Considering the price and location, I will stay at the same hotel again if I go back to Barcelona. If you are looking for a luxury place, this is not a 5 star hotel, However the hotel is modern, clean, with the roof pool, and nice staff. It is located slightly away from the touristy area which makes it quiet; however convenient to walk there. I didn't get breakfast included as i wanted to try local restaurants; however, I had their open buffet breakfast twice and it was worth it. Their breakfast is with local and fresh products and very well diverse for different taste.

    clean room

    I stayed here for 1 night for my visit to Barcelona. Room was big enough and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. You can go to fantasitic famous spots on foot, such as park de la Ciutadella, port vell, cathdral, plau Guell, Museu Picasso, and many others. The hotel is close to the Metro station, Arc de Triomf, so it is easy to visit other spots, such as Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, and even Estadi Camp Nou if you love football. It is so convenient that Metro runs 24 hours on Saturday. Overall I enjoyed my stay in the hotel and city.

    Maybe I was lucky, but I had a nice room with a small balcony on the front of the hotel. Room is spacious and it's nice to begin the morning with sunbading on the rooftop. The swimmingpool is small, but nice to refresh.

    Great location, cozy feel”

    Price is very reasonable, very clean, hotel is small, room was comfortable though with large bathroom and balcony overlooking the street. Location great, in trendy Born area steps away from Barri Gotic and metro/ bus. Had a great free snack and espresso bar in evenings. One thing to mention is that sound carries, and in morning/night, we could often hear people coming and going, doors shutting. We used sound machines to block out the noise, so it was not a problem.

    The staff in this hotel are without exception friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location for exploring Born and the Gothic quarter and you can walk to the beach in about 15 mins. There are many local shops, cafes,bars and tapas each of a high quality but reasonable prices and not a chain anywhere until you are in the cathedral area. If you want to experience Barcelona without the tourist traps,this is the place to stay.Would highly recommend and will definitely return here

    Nice hotel in trendy area. Good walking distance to sights”

    Lots of lovely neighbourhood restaurants and bars within walking distance of hotel, without it being in a noisy street (although our room was a courtyard view, not street so perhaps quieter). The rooftop terrace is small but pleasant (this was Xmas & deserted on roof but warm enough for fizz & Xmas gift opening!) we didn't eat at hotel as the place opposite is so sweet!

    We stayed for 5 nights and had 3 rooms. There are many hotels in Gothic area. This one is right next to the Arc de Triumphe. Walking distance to most tourist sights. Very friendly staff. Rooms are not big but still ok given the location. Room and bathroom look both newly renovated. Bathroom looks luxurious and has separate shower and tub. Breakfast buffet is very good. We like a good meal for breakfast so that was definitely a plus. The pool on the roof is tiny. the water looked milky for the first 2 days but after that it was very clean. it is 1 meter deep. I would stay again.

    Short break in Barca”

    Spent four nights at this hotel. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Hotel and room were nicely laid out and very clean. Our room was on a particularly noisy side of hotel overlooking the main entrance, where the street is quite narrow and and noise does seem to be amplified and we did leave our windows open on the first night. We kept them closed, using the air con on a low setting for the remainder of our stay and all was well and good nights sleep were enjoyed on the large comfortable bed.
