Dating back to the 19th century, this former palace has now been restored and converted into Catalonia Portal De L'Angel Hotel. A central location places you within steps of both the Plaza de Catalunya as well as the vibrant Las Ramblas. At the end of the day, the open-air courtyard is an excellent place to relax and includes the hotel pool surrounded by the garden. A central location makes it easy to explore Barcelona from the Catalonia Portal De L'Angel Hotel.
"Pool and courtyard is a fantastic oasis and the service is p..."

the hotel is located very close to plaza catalunya and just a short walk from la rambla. the old quarter is also close by and la sagrada familia is within walking distance. the reception staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. the hotel also offers free wi-fi. there are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants in the neighbourhood and the hotel is right in the heart of the shopping area with major shops and smaller boutiques on the doorstep. with its central location and very reasonable prices, the portal de l'angel offers great value for money and is hard to beat.

Falling in love with Barcelona”
50 kilometers walking in Barcelona in 4 days and we have not discovered all the secrets of the city! Catalonia Portal De L'Angel is a fantastic place to start discovering tours in all directions. It has a very charming flair.
Dear Alain, Thank very much for your great review! Best Regards from all the staff, Hotel Catalonia Portal de l' Angel
Great location, helpful staff, comfortable rooms”
The hotel is located a few minutes' walk from Plaza Catalunya and is very convenient for the airport bus which stops just in front of El Corte Ingles on the square. La Rambla and the old town are practically on the doorstep and the hotel is in the centre of the main shopping area. Even the Apple shop is just a few minutes' walk away - a great help when we had a small problem with our I-pad. The staff on reception were always friendly and helpful and always ready to assist with queries about local transport, places to visit etc. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable and offer excellent value for money. An added bonus is the free wi-fi. There are plenty of restaurants in the vicinity and one place not to miss for excellent pinchos is Txapela on nearby Passeig de Gracia. The long-established restaurant Pitarra, well-known amongst locals, is a great place to try Catalan specialities at a reasonable price and is less than 10 minutes' walk from the hotel in the old quarter. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit - it would be difficult to find a better location at such a reasonable price.
An oasis of calm in the craziness of Barcelona”
The location of the hotel is awesome and is very central to a lot of popular locations - La Rambla and La Boquiera are literally a block away. It's also surrounded by shops, which made me extremely happy. Honestly this hotel is a gem, like an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. It was better than expected and the foyer is quite grand. Our room was quite pleasant - we didn't have a view of anything spectular, just the stairwell to the courtyard and foyer below, so our curtain was always closed. One of the downsides was that there wasn't a lot of lighting in the room, I think there were 2 main down lights, and because we couldn't open our curtain, the room was quite dark. So extra lighting would be good. Oh and also the bathroom door is frosted...so if privacy is an issue keep that in mind. I didn't eat the food here so I can't comment but breakfast was €20 pp which is quite expensive. The pool is quite small as others have mentioned but that shouldn't matter as it's handy in the heat, although I didn't get the chance to use it. I really really liked this hotel and would highly recommend it to others and would definitely and gladly stay here again.
Location was great. Just about a block away is the Plaza Catalonia and the Cathedrial. At night the gothic area is great, lots of little bars close by and lots of tapas restaurants. Just at your doorstep there is a large street with lots of shops and restaurants close by. Live music is played in the street every day. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated, very modern. Rooms are a defiantly on the small side so I recommend upgrading to the rooms with balconies those rooms are significantly bigger. Pool is a nice added feature to beat the heat in the afternoon and regroup before heading back out. Staff was always pleasant and helpful. Beds are double beds not just two twins pushed together. Would defiantly recommend this hotel to others and will stay again during my return to Barcelona.
Long weekend in Barcelona”
Nice stay, the Hotel got me checked in fast, room was clean and nice. I liked the free WiFi and had a good connection on the third floor. Location was ideal, just a couple mins from Las Ramblas but on a nice side pedestrian street, very close to Catalunya Plaza. Restaurants and tapas bars are very accessible. Tourist buses that travel the city can be boarded at the plaa and are a great way to see the Major sites of Barcelona.
Great loation but very small room.”
Location is great - just beside Catalonia sq of Barcelona. Many shops and restaurants around. Little bit hard to find - entrance located in pedestrian street, and many other hotel have name - Portal De L'Angel. Very small room and no window. But features are new and good condition.
great location, boutique hotel with artistic style”
We had a great time at this hotel which is an oasis of calm in the middle of the busiest area of the Barcelona shopping and tourism district. It has been finished with a great deal of style and attention to detail and the trompe l'oeil paiting around the site adds to the overall feel. The from desk staff were very helpful and professional. Good value for money compared to other catalonia group hotels
This is an inexpensive nice hotel.”
I have a pleasant stay at Catalonia Portal. I truly vote for it to be the top 10 hotel in Barcelona without burning a hole in your pocket.
Fantastic Location ”
Hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants. 3 mins walk to Placa Catalunya, for subway, hop on hop off bus and the airport bus (35 mins to airport). Beautiful La Rambla is one street over, which leads to the port and beach area (about 30 mins walk down another pedestrian mall) Staff were very helpful and breakfast was great value.
Very nice hotel”
Right in the middle of the shopping district, excellent location just a few 100 metres from Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas. I was lucky enough to get a superior room, and it was very quiet and very clean. The desk in the room could've had a lamp, because the rooms were very dark-lit, but it created a nice atmosphere in the room. Good wifi connection for skype.
Top Spot for Barcelona”
This was a great pick. The hotel is in a great spot on a mall leading into the old part of the city. Las Rambla is close by if you need to go there (we think it is too touristy). Great little bars and restaurants close by too. Only one thing.....make sure you know exactly where it is. Agodas address as published is wrong and you'll end up a long walk away.
Great Location, very god Service”
We were a family, took 2 Rooms, 4 people all adults. the hotel location is great, in the hurt of THE shopping district in Barcelona, hotel Lobby is nice, very good breakfast and the staff are willing to assist and help you with every request including attractions and recommendations, ticketing as well as early check-in and late check out. I strongly recommend on this hotel!
Fantastic location :)”
Really good location! Center of the prime area! Staff was extremely helpful and informative. Gave recommendation and even assisted us in Park Guell booking 😍 Able to provide place of interest directions accurately and suggest us to go places based on opening hours. The best choice ever in Barcelona 🥰 Will not hesitate to recommend this hotel to all my friends 👫
Really great location, right where you want to be to explore the Gothic Area, but still quiet enough for a good nights sleep (and lie in). Rooms were clean, pool area was lovely and the reception area really wows!! Really handy location for the Aerobus to and from the airport. The staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Stay here if you want to go to Barcelona for a weekend of eating and drinking but still want a bit of class and some quiet times.
Good location ”
Good location , near shoppings and major attraction otherwise accessible . Never gets bored staying in that area . It s less noisy and messy than Las Ramblas yet you can get some of the great restaurant and shoppings around .
Beautiful Place to stay.”
If you have never been to Barcelona this is a wonderful place to stay at. The staff was so friendly and courteous and very helpful. The place was immaculate not to mention beautiful. Roomy rooms and beautiful bathrooms. Everything was within walking distance. I would definitely stay there again. What a beautiful experience.
Excellent location, great staff”
My cousin and I met here almost 40 years since we were last in Barcelona. A fabulous hotel, very central for walking everywhere, the staff were so friendly and helpful, swimming pool and garden area was a real bonus on the hot days and food excellent.
Lovely hotel with great staff”
perfect location, right across the road from the airport bus, parralel to la rambla, good mini bar, nice powerful shower. small bed area in standard room but it wasn't a problem.
