Better than expected!

The hotel location on the Gran Via was and very central. The room on the top floor with a large balcony would have been perfect expect for some heavy rainfall. The room was clean and fairly spacious. Would definitely consider the hotel again; a good value.

Barcelona trip

The hotel is in a great location, close to metro station and 20 min walking distance from plaza Espania. Plaza Catalonia was 10 min away. La Rambla was 10 min away as well. Breakfast was ok, we had it the first day, but after that it was easier to go to Starbucks and have coffee and croissant there. It was cheaper in a away and enough till lunch. There are number of restaurants and cafés, as well as stores near by so one can enjoy the opportunity to relax and not spend too much. I will definitely recommend the hotel.

Take the double decker bus for 2 days. It gives the opportunity to see Barcelona for two days and hop on and off any stop one prefers.

great location; poor service

The hotel is in a great location with it being two blocks from the metro and about a quarter mile from the start of the Rambla. The hotel was clean and the room adequate, but the service desk attendants were not helpful and on the first day quite unfriendly. I had difficulty getting the air conditioning to work and received no meaningful help when I asked for it. And on the way to ask for help, I passed what appeared to be a hotel manager and room attendant yelling at one another in the hallway. When I asked for a second room key for my girlfriend I was told to come back later. The vacation was great, though, and we loved Barcelona.

Look into buying tickets for the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell in advance. It will save you quite a bit of time waiting in line. Both locations are well worth seeing.

Clean and great location

Really enjoyed this hotel. It is 2 minutes from the nearest metro station (Universitat) and right in the heart of the city centre, making it a 5 minute walk to get to Las Ramblas. Since the metro in Barcelona is very well connected, you can pretty much get anywhere. The hotel itself was very clean and modern, with a small balcony, and also had a mini bar fridge - handy to store our own water and drinks on a hot day. Staff were very friendly as well. Only down sides are that there was nothing to do in the actual hotel, besides breakfast. Also, the cleaners sometimes would ignore the "do not disturb sign" and knock the door anyway to see if our room wanted cleaned. Overall, though the location and hotel were excellent.

Buy a 10 day journey metro ticket. Only around 10 Euros for this which is great value for money and you can even share the ticket by passing it to a friend at the barriers. Watch for pickpockets on the metro - always hold your bag at the front or watch pockets.

Great location for exploring Barcelona

Stayed at the Caledonian for about 10 days for work, and had a good experience all around. The staff was friendly and helpful, even when I wandered in after 3AM. The 6th floor room was clean and comfortable, with a nice balcony. Access was also good, for walking or from the nearby Universitat metro station. The only minuses was that the WIFI connectivity was occasionally spotty, and that there was an extra fee for using room safe.

Good for a quick weekend stay

I stayed for just a weekend so this hotel was fine. It had a great location - close to the Metro and about a ten minute walk to the main plaza. The room was little more than a twin bed, closet, and small bathroom. Since it was a short trip I didn't mind, but I can see how one could get claustrophobic during a longer stay. I had the breakfast once. It was a good size spread.

Ideal location

This hotel is within a 10 minute walking distance to Plaza Catalunya, which is the center of the city and all attractions start from there (tours, shopping, dining, etc). I stayed in a single room which did not have a lot of space, but was sufficient for me, considering the fact that I spent most of the day outside. Metro stop is within 1 block (3 minute walk), small grocery store within a 2 minute walk. And two nice restaurants right next door. The one next door had outstanding Paellas. Staff was very helpful and accommodating and spoke English. Excellent WiFi access. Unlike other hotels I stayed in, the TV did not have any English speaking news channels, but I was able to get the news using the Internet anyway. They said they are working on that issue though. All and all this is an excellent value for your money.

This hotel is in a grat location. The staff was extremely helpful and the rooms are bright and clean. The front desk was extremely courteous and made every effort to attend to our requests. We were provided with an early check-in as we arrived in the morning. I willl return again to this property and highly recommend it.
