Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Short metro ride to La Ramblas (the main tourist street for shopping, dining, and night life) Becareful not to rely on the metro after 1130 pm on week nights. Use a taxi its worth the money to get back to the hotel safe and sound.

First trip to Spain

We enjoyed this hotel very much. The hotel sits right across from Sants station which has connections to anywhere in the city. We even caught the train to penedes for a wine tour from there. The staff was professional. My only concern is that the housekeeper came into our room when we had the do not disturb sign up. Besides that everything was great.

Good hotel, Amenities Incorrectly advertised

Hotel is excellent. Breakfast is very good and the view from the restaurant is breathtaking. Very close to a main train/subway station. Internet was advertised on this website as free but the hotel did not think so. Eventually they gave it to me as a courtesy but said the online agency is wrong. Do not expect a concierge service if you are a tourist. Location is central but not in the tourist area.

Excellent location for getting around Barcelona

Transport links and ease of getting this hotel make it a must for a weekend break. The helpfull and friendly staff along with the quality of food served from the panoramic restaurant make my choice of hotel very easy for the next visit 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).

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.
