Clean and well-appointed in the El Born district

We were very happy with our stay here. Nice, well appointed rooms. Very near the Parc de la Ciutadella and the Arc de Triomphe. Walking distance to most of Barcelona's main attractions. Several nice restaurants nearby. Friendly and helpful reception staff and great coffee!

Great value!

We stayed at Catelonia Born for 3 nights. The location was great we were 15 min walk from Sagrada La Familia. We were 5 min walk to middle of Barri Gotic. Quiet room pleasant stay. Breakfast was too pricy for what we require in the Morning.Definately would stay again.

Saturday Night Stay

Very spacious room and huge bathroom with separate tub and shower for such a historic city. Very nice and clean room with modern amenities. The staff was fantastic and was very helpful in helping us get around the city. Within walking distance to "La Rambla" the shopping district. Nice neighborhood with bakeries nearby and very close to the "Arc de Triomf." By cab it's only 15 min to the Cruise Terminal and 30 min to the Airport without traffic.

Very clean and helpful

The hotel and the rooms are very clean and updated for the modern living. We didn't have any complaints towards the hotel. The staff was also very helpful when we needed answers from them. Another great thing about the hotel was the proximity of the metro stop which is less than a block away. The location for the hotel was not the best since its few blocks from the main Las Ramblas strip and the good restaurants but once you are there for couple day you can navigate through the back streets and cut the commute. Overall we had a great experience and if we were to visit Barcelona again we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Great Central Hotel

Would definitely stop again Positives were, -Arc de Triomf is within a stones throw from the hotel doorstep. Very central location -Metro station & large park were also very close. -Hotel Staff were very friendly and accommodating. -Room was fine, clean and big enough -Supermarket just around the corner Only downsides were, -Room was next to an alley way which did get noisy at night, and the only view was into the opposing apartments front room. (we were warned by other sites to stay away from the elevators) -paying a city tax on the check out, but maybe i should have looked into this before going. (wasn't much about 1.75 per night)

Great location, friendly staff

Hotel has a great location for all main sights and the beach is easily accessible. Rooms were clean, bed could have been a little more comfortable.

Okay Hotel, Great Location

Nothing special about the hotel, though the location was great. A/C did not work to well, which is not a good thing if you plan on being there in the summer. The star system in Europe seems to be a full star inflated, this was definitely not a 4 star hotel by american standards, but still okay.

Fantastic, Exactly what was expected

I had traveled to Barcelona by myself, (and greatly recommend solo-tripping). On booking this I had read the reviews and heard of all the unexcellent service, and I am saying, not so! The only thing that I am dissapointed about is that I had spent all my euros by the end of my trip (using credit cards) and was unable to tip the desk man who stayed while I walked around every night and let me back, who also called my taxi and helped me with a smooth and quick checkout. The shower head was broken and sprayed water out the left side and slightly affected the pressure. One time room service called me asking if I was the room that had ordered the pizza. That was comical :) I had a great stay, its location is amazing. Next to the Arc de Triomf which makes travel and finding 'home' very easy, very close to the plaza de cataluna, extremely close to some awesome parks, don't expect amazing butler service, but they will go beyond just helping you. Plus Barcelonans are just nice people too 3 stars for the shape of the place 4 stars for the service 4 stars for the location
