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 hotel in top location”

Very well appointed rooms, convenient quiet location walking distance to La Ramblas, close to shops cafes etc

Stayed 4 nights in the Catalonia Born, room 8 on the ground floor. A huge room ( the sofa was a bed so possibly was a triple room) massive bathroom, big shower, separate bath. Well fitted out. Small but nice rooftop pool , nice deckchairs, shaded area with table and chairs. Free wifi, works strangely, had to keep logging in via hotel website. Free computers/printer in lobby, staff very helpful. Buffet Breakfast but at 16 euros expensive. Plenty of close alternative, great bakery in same street. Location great, in quiet narrow street, 2 little supermarkets within 50 metres, plenty of restaurants , great tapas bars within 5 min walk. (try La Candela , outside area in the church square, and Mosquito, fantastic Vietnamese restaurant/bar, great dumplings) cool neighborhood feel. one minute to the Arc d'Triomphe and it's great plaza, La Ciutedella Park. 10 min walk to La Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya. Got a taxi (approx 6 euro ) to La Sagrada Familia. Book online to avoid the queue. Seemed very safe location, would definitely recommend .

We loved this hotel for our second stay in Barcelona. The area is much more unique and less touristy than Las Ramblas. The rooms and bathrooms were huge (which was a nice change from other European hotels). I would, without a doubt, stay at Catalonia Born again.

nice and quite place to explore the inner city”

fair value for money, roof-top pool, inner city in walking distance

honestly, the main reason to choose this hotel was to have a place very close to the start of the barcelona half marathon (mitja maratona). but it turned out to be a good decision, because the hotel is clean, affordable and nice. it's not outstanding but fair value for money and a good place to explore the city. metro + train station "arc the triomphe" is just round the corner, if you walk a few minutes towards the inner city you find yourself amist vibrant life of el born quarter - with lot's of shops and tapas bars. main sightseeing attractions like the cathedral "la seu", the modernisme building "palau de la música catalana" or the gothic church of santa maria del mar are within walking distance - in fact we crossed the inner city of barri gotic and st.pere/el born/ribera quite a few times, discovering nice places every time. the rooms are ok but not overwhelming, wifi is free and works (but i lost connection sometimes maybe due to being located in the 7th floor), breakfast offers reason choice and quality - except for the coffee - we definitely found much better coffee all over barcelona. tea in general doesn't seem to be a spanish core competency, so i wouldn't blame the hotel for not surprising in this area. enjoying the rooftop pool wasn't an option due to february temperatures - but it looked clean and should be a nice place to relax in warmer months.

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.

Great Hotel”

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

great location, decent hotel”

location, price, breakfast

Good hotel. Basic but with a lot of extras. The room was no frills - basic but clean and good enough. Not luxury but also not bad. Not too small and had a window that opened onto a neighborhood alley. The bed was not the best but not the worst. The bathroom was very well stocked with all the little extras including this magic shoe cleaning sponge that works amazingly well. The staff is very professional and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent. My only complaint is that the dishes at breakfast were not very clean - this is something they could easily improve. The location is great - on a quiet street right next to the Arc de Triomf and subway station. I heard music every day and could walk to the park in a few minutes, the Born district in 10 minutes, the other Gotic areas in 20, Las Ramblas in 30...

Good location, poor breakfast”

Good location, nice, tidy room

It is next to the Arc de Triomph, underground is near and a little walk to the Ramblas. The room is nice, tidy, clean, view to the areaway, but not dark. The bathroom is well-equipped, there are a bath and also a douche. The breakfast was not included in the price, but we could have had and paid in the hotel. We decided to eat breakfast, but after we have seen, we changed our mind. We moved there from another 4* hotel in Barcelona, where we ate breakfast as a king for 9 €. In Hotel Barcelona Born we could have the tenth of it for 10 €. Really, really poor. Although it is not a big problem, because there are a lots of bakery and supermarket nearby. One more negativeness: we paid the whole amount in advance - as we thought... but we should pay one more tax in the hotel which was a new tax in the city - as we were told, but why did they not send an e-mail to inform us about it?

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.

Great location, decent hotel”

Location is perfect

The Catalonia Born is a perfectly decent hotel in a fantastic location. It's less then 5 minute walk from the Arc de Triomf (also the nearest Metro stop) and is surrounded by fantastic little restaurants, bakeries, bars, and a terrific gourmet food market. Less than 15 minute walk to La Rambla and all the city center stuff. Breakfast was not included in our stay so we cannot comment on the restaurant, but we found a great little restaurant with a 3 EUR offerta of breakfast sandwich and great coffee right in front of the Arc. The Air Conditioning was a blessed relief in August, but it never got the room down below about 25 no matter what it was set on. This was consistent in both the ground floor room we stayed in the first time and the third floor room we stayed in the second time.

In a quiet yet busy area, recommended. The position on the old city is brilliant, quiet at night.”

Pros : in a nice area of Barcelona, away from the husslers and the bus load tourists. Excellent breakfast choice and quality. Surrounded by restaurants within a stone throw from the hotel so no need to worry about where to eat. Friendly helpful staff. Your bags are quickly conveyed from the street. Comfortable beds and pillows. Cons: none that I could see. It is in a restricted area of town I.e. bollards at street entrances do not allow all vehicles through but taxis are no problems- maybe that is a pro, after all.
