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).

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!!

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.

Great Experience

I really liked this hotel. The staff was really hepful and I can't complain about anything. The location was good and bad. There was nothing near by that I was interested in. However there was a great train and metro station across the street, so it was easy to get anywhere in town fast.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

use the metro to: Go to the Bocarilla on Las Ramblas Go to Sagrada Famillia Make reservation in advance to "Tickets" tapas bar" go to La Chamanerilla (sp), find someone that speaks English and have them order you as many different types of specialty sandwiches as you can eat. Warning this place is packed and there is no sign. Look for the crowd and don't go if you are afraid to throw a friendly elbow and are turned off by the paper wrapers on the floor.

Good Location and The price not Bad

The hotel and the staff was very professional and friendly. The language barrier was a little difficult but not as bad as the first hotel I went to. The only disappointment was the mini bar charge on a daily basis. Being that I don't drink any types of alcohol and was getting red bulls and water the charges for that was a bit ridiculous. So upon check in it should be explained that the mini bar charges every day unless you declined. Overall I was very pleased with the hotel, its cleanliness, the room, its services, the breakfast buffet upstairs and the business center. The location of TMB and able to move around.The TV could use more English speaking channels.

Some Pretty View

The hotel is very nice and as a great view from the 16th floor and above. If you are lucky, you will get a room with the view to Sagrada Familia. The only small issue we faced was a broken dimer in our bathroom. Other than that, the room was amazing. Executive suite for a great price.

Walk to the Mountjuik park, if you go when not to warm in the mourning, it's a great nice walk.
