should be a 5 star hotel

Well, my husband and i had taken a train from Madrid to Barcelona...when we arrived at the station the hotel was literally across the street, it was very convenient. We are smokers and when asked if we wanted a smoking room i was apprehensive because they usually smell pretty bad, but said yes.. we were put on the very top floor with the best views of Barcelona and it did not smell bad at all. The room was beautiful and spacious the bathtub could easily fit 3 people, and had a separate shower. Staff was great very friendly. We ordered room service and the food was delicious. We liked it so much, that at times we almost preferred staying in the room than sightseeing around the city. We would definitely stay here again 5 stars!!! Tell them u want a smoking room and you'll automatically be upgraded to the top floor for free.

Amazing anniversary break!

I can only say that this hotel surpassed my expectations, having read all the good reviews and reports I was already excited but from when we arrived till when we left the service was excellent! Hotel is located next to station to excellent links to airport and there are lots of handy shops in there too! It was out anniversary and staff went out of their way to make us feel special, a room on the 17th floor with excellence view of he city, wine and strawberries in our room and rose petals on the bed! Cleanliness was first class! We ate in the hotel and ordered room service, food was very good and reasonably priced for a hotel of this quality!

Helpful staff, convenient location, nice hotel!

The front desk staff was really friendly and helpful. We were given free drinks at the nice hotel bar, and the room was good as well. Only downside is it's not in the heart of the city really, but easy to catch the nearby subway.

Big Hotel Near Sants Station

The staff was very good to us. The room was clean and reasonably spacious. The location was not as god as we thought, never having been to Barcelona. Most of the interesting "tourist" stuff was a few miles away, but easily accessible by Metro, but it took stair-climbing and walking to get there. Also, we were surprised to find there was no pool. Breakfast was an "extra," not included in the room rate, although it was a fine buffet for about 13 Euros/person/day.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Guell park is a popular attraction, but it is weird. It was a long walk from the Metro, and even the tourist buses can't get too close because it is on the side of a hill. They charge for the "Monuments" area, which contains the Gaudi-designed stuff. But you have to buy your tickets well in advance -- we had a 2.5-hour wait. And you might think there are other things to see in the park, but there are no maps of the place, only one free bathroom with a 15-minute wait for women, and one little snack bar. Suggest you buy tickets on-line in advance and either bring a lunch or buy it at a restaurant outside the park.

Love the Torre Catalunya, best value and wonderful hotel

The staff is so friendly, train station across the street. Supermarket minutes walk. View from the 23rd floor restaurant is amazing. The breakfast is totally worth it 13 Euro but the quality and selection is top notch and again the view. I booked this hotel after reading reviews and I am so happy I did! Hi to Musa at the front desk and Pablo the bell men and all the wonderful staff at TC!

LOVED THE SERVICE AND THE ROOMS!!!

I had been traveling throughout Europe for a month, and stayed at 7 different hotels by then, in several countries. Just when I had given up on finding a decent hotel and reset my expectations to low levels, I discovered this hotel. Not only its location is convenient to any other point of the city, right across the train station, but you feel the difference at the moment you interact with the front desk staff. They are very pleasant, polite, helpful and considered. They truly make you feel welcome and show a genuine desire to ensure you have a pleasant stay. When I entered the room, wouuu! An amazing view of the city; lots of closet space; a bed so comfortable you don’t want to get up; and a big bathroom also with a view. This had the feeling of an Executive Suite but at an incredible low price of $139/night. OMG! Compared to the $400/night lousy hotels in France and Germany, this was hard to believe. And the breakfast… Out of this world: lots of buffet choices, with a variety of fresh fruits, juices, meats, cheeses, and even superior champagne for your mimosas. I can’t say enough of this place without sounding like a commercial. I even cancelled my trip to Madrid to enjoy Barcelona for 3 more days. Interesting how a hotel could influence your impression of a city. I definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to stay again on my next visit to Barcelona.
