Roomy but not close to the action

Room is very spacious compared with the other 2 hotels I stayed at in Barcelona. Bathroom was extremely nice, but, a weird lighting setup where the bedroom lights come on if you use the bathroom which is awkward when you use the bathroom while your roomate is sleeping. But, it is a metro ride away from Las Ramblas and Placa Catalunya where the action is is. It is within walking distance to Placa Espana and the Magic Fountains. Staff is helpful and nice. Bed was extremely uncomfortable and beddings were stiff. I was unable to sleep. It is right across the street from the main train station (Sants) so its convenient to travelers who are taking the train. There is 15 minutes of free internet, then you pay. The breakfast (which I did not purchase) was unbelieveably expensive ($20 euro).

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Metro station Tarragona is only a block away and will drop you off at Las Ramblas/Barri Gothis/Port Vell without a transfer on the L3 Train. Trains seem to come every 5 minutes.

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.

Stay at this Hotel!

This 4-star hotel is right off the main metro station, Barcelona Estancia. After touring the city, it was lovely to come "home" to a clean, modern, cool air-conditioned hotel. The price is more than reasonable. The beds are and bathrooms were marvelous. The Visual Restaurant has awesome views of the entire city. The staff gave us wonderful recommendations for local restaurants. They supply maps and directions for all the major sites. It is walking distance from the Magic Fountain on Sunday evenings. The metro will get you to every main attraction in Barcelona quickly and for a fraction of the price of the Tourist Bus or a Taxi. The staff at Torre Cantalunya will help you with getting familiar to the Metra system.

We stayed for 4 nights at ...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Torre Catalunya at the end of a cruise. We found the location, steps from the Sants train & metro station, very convenient, especially for catching the airport bus (only 4 euros per person). The staff was friendly & accommodating, the room was large, the bathroom was huge, & the breakfast buffet on the 23rd floor was bountiful. The major drawback for us was the too-firm beds. Other unpleaseant surprises were the dearth of entertainment programming in English (all 4 English channels were News/Finance even though there were entertainment channels in Spanish, Catalan, French, Italian, Arabic, Chinese, etc.), & the lack of 24-hour room service (except for ice delivery since all the ice machines were broken).
