Great Location next to major train station hub

The location is perfect. It's so easy to get around Barcelona by train, and this hotel is right next to one of the major hubs. Getting to and from the airport is easy as well by taking the R2 train. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and spacious for a European hotel. We were on the 16th floor and had fabulous unobstructed view of Barcelona. My wife and I would definitely stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Purchase the T-10 pass for the Barcelona Metro if you plan on taking the metro everywhere. It's 92 cents a fare compared to a regular fare of 2 Euros.

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.

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.

excellent accomodations

We arrived as weary travelers, and upgraded (very reasonably) to a corner room on the 12th floor with incredible views of Barcelona. Friendly staff, Very modern, spa-like bathroom---all around a great stay. The hotel is right across the street from the train station and bus connections. Only slight down-side---it is a bit farther out from places we would have chosen to walk---but very accessible for bus/taxi travel anywhere in the city. A great find!

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.

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!

Convenient Location

Great hotel. Great customer service. Right across from the main train station, and a Metro stop. Lots of good eating options close by. Even up high, it was somewhat noisy from sirens on the streets below.

Excellent hotel and location!

A great place to stay if you have a flight the next day or want to be close to Sants Estacion or the Metro. The area is very lively for commuting and close to a supermercado and various restaurants. Staff was great and very friendly.
