The hotel stands in a privileged location in the center of Barcelona. Only a few meters from Paseo de Gracia and very close to Las Rambias, the hotel is situated on a pedestrian avenue with a wide variety of shops and boutiques that connects Plaza Catalunya with the entrance to the Gothic Quarter.It is a pleasure to enter the Catalonia Albinoni and admire its Neoclassical beauty. The building has been added to the Artistic Heritage Catalogue of the city. Pedro Bassegoda y Mateu built this small palace in 1876, and in 1998 it opened its doors as a hotel. The hotel still preserves its original Neoclassical facade which features Romantic and Baroque motfis. The entry hall, which would be large enough to let in the carriages from the beginning of the country , leads us to the interior courtyard that has been renovated according to the original model. The hotel reception and bar are currently in this courtyard . There we can admire the original marble staircase, typical of the finest house of those times. Enjoy our breakfast buffet served under a unique marquee in the hotel garden patio. New exterior swimming pool. Enjoy its overflowing waterfall, as well as the exterior solarium with wood surface and a landscaped zone with palms. A new restaurante is now open at Catalonia Albinoni. Have a nice dinner at El Jardí de l'Angel and enjoy our tasteful Catalan cuisine. Openning hours: From 13.00 to 16.00 and from 20.00 to 23.00.

Ideal hotel in ideal location

Very friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them.The hotel itself was faultless,- very clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was beautiful and set you up for the day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone on a sight seeing trip as its location is very central.

The worst experience ever

I really had experienced one of the worst hotel, one can ever be in, although the location is very good, but rooms had one window that you cannot reach to open ( you really feel your are stuck in jail), and when we complained in the second night they changed to another room where you can open the window, but still it has no aceess to fresh air. In addition to a very unprofessional, unfriendly receptionist that made things much worse a lady is called Meriam, she is really the worst immage of any hotel

Great Location

Hotel has a central location and is just a short walk to many landmarks and very close to all forms of public transportation. The hotel had excellent customer service, they even recommended a restaurant (The Attic) that was the great food and an amazing rooftop terrace located in the middle of Las Ramblas. The only downside was that the A/C wasnt working great so if you are going in the summer, this is something to keep in mind. The rooms were very clean and the premium rooms were nicely decorated. I would recommend the Hotel to anyone that wants to be right in the Heart of Barcelona without spending a fortune.

Would return in a heartbeat

The location could not be better for three women traveling, close to everything. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet along with the entire hotel. The breakfast buffet had a large selection and enough to keep us going all day. But it was the front desk person, [...], that really made our day. He greeted us every morning with smiles and a laugh that would start our day. He went out of his way to help us with restaurants and things not to miss, but he really came to our rescue when we didn't have the correct adapters for the electric, just imagine three women without a flat iron, telephones, or Kindle. Thank you [...]!

excellent location

the room was clean and recently renovated in eurostyle, but it was dark and poorly lit. however, our only real disappointment was that the window opened onto a skylight well, instead of to the outside. judging from the fire escape floor plan in the room, the hotel seems to have a lot of these interior rooms. the lobby and bar area were pleasant. the breakfast was very good, and was set up in an attractive (and heated) tent out in the patio. the location is very central and convenient.

Excellent

We actually booked at this hotel in Barcelona, but their systems were allowing reservations when there were no rooms available. They had already arranged resevations for us at their other hotel which was very nice as well. We had visited this hotel and loved the lobby, it is modern and clean, awesome location, etc.

Great Location- Charming Hotel.

The Catalonia Albononi is lovely. Stayed here over a weekend before departing on a cruise. The hotel is charming- not luxurious, but certainly very comfortable and quite clean. The staff was helpful and friendly- the beds comfortable and the room quiet. Location is great- near Las Ramblas , but still quiet. Value for the price is exceptional. Food in the resataurant was very good.

quiet hotel in the heart of the old city

We stayed at the Catalonia Albinoni for four nights in June 2008. We had a room with two twin beds on the top (4th floor), with a window that faced a blank wall. Although initially concerned with the massive jackhammers that were going 20 feet away, the room was very quiet and we never heard any street noise or any of our neighbors. This hotel has a fantastic location. It's one block from the Placa Catalyuna metro, one block from a supermarket in the basement of Corte Ingles (not the one next door, the big one opposite Placa Catalyuna), and two blocks from the cathedral and Las Ramblas. It's in the pedestrianized area, so if you want a taxi to take you to the door, you're going to have to walk about 100m. We took the train from the airport and walked from Passieg de Gracia, which was long, but doable with rolling luggage. Service was great. Fresh towels and toiletries every day.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a huge grocery store in the basement of the Cortes Ingles department store facing Placa Catalyuna. If you find the tap water undrinkable (it's safe, but there's a tang of something), they have huge bottles of water for something like 0.66 euro -- avoid the shops on Las Ramblas who want to sell you water for 2.5 euros.
