Good base for exploration

Great location just a few minutes walk from Sants station. Reception staff friendly and helpful. We stayed in larger dual aspect room with bath and separate shower. Room clean but furniture tired and had seen better days. Pool out of action on weekend of stay so swimmies remained dry.

A wonderful stay...

The front desk and bell services staff were always very helpful and friendly! They also spoke English which was extremely helpful to us non-Spanish speaking Americans. The only "negatives" would be a little far from the action and even our non-smoking room smelled like smoke. Neither is enough to deter us from staying there again on a future visit. Having a/c was HUGE (Barcelona isHOTin July) & well worth the money!!

Lovely birthday treat

We had a lovely spacious room on the 10th floor with a fantastic bathroom. The location was great for us, there was plenty to do in the evenings nearby (don't miss the magic fountains) also the restaurant Visual, is amazing, both the food and the views. There are 2 Metro stations nearby so it's easy to get anywhere else in the city. We will definately be back.

great location and great hotel

we chose this hotel as it is right across from the sants station making it easy for the early flight home. However it is also very close to the metro so you can get around town very easily. The front desk service could not have been any better and our stay there was great. would recomend to anyone going to barcelona.

Great stay at Torre Catalunya

Excellent service, great clean rooms for the price. Rooms was on 7th flr.. decent view. Good housekeeping services. Excellent Front Desk and valet staff. Did not use their restaurant as we found cheaper food elsewhere. Free wi-fi in all rooms plus a business center to print docs if needed. Directly across from Sants Estacios station. Close to Plaza Catalunya. Hotel sells tickets for the official busturistica hop on/off bus (~34 Euros/person for 2 days, 26 EU for 1 day/person). Bus stop is behind the railway station. You can get off at a tourist spot and then hop back on to your next stop. Runs from 9 am-8 pm or so. Buses have free wi-fi. Super markets and quite a few restaurants within 5-10 mins walking distance.. also a food court inside Sants station. Cab fare from Airport (~30 Euros total for two passengers+ 3 bags. note: bags are charged extra on top of trip fare).

Nice touch!! Spa and swimming pool amazing! Very cheap! Overall a great experience and would I go again??
