Great location and very modern rooms. Loved the roof top area to overlook the plaza.

great hotel, nice staff, wonderful location. Stayed one night

There's a lot to love about the Catalonia Barcelona Plaza! Overseas work took me here in both December 2015 and 2018. We liked it so much we decided to stay here for our followup vacation. The hotel is easy to get to; right off an Aerobus stop from the airport. The staff are friendly, helpful, and quick to speak English for those of us who don't speak great Spanish or Catalan. Rooms are on the smaller side (hey, it's Europe) but comfortable and roomy enough for 2, with lots of amenities. We didn't get to try out the pool, being as it was December, but hey. The hotel breakfast buffet is expansive (seriously, fellow Americans, embrace it and enjoy jamon and cheese and bread for breakfast!) if a bit pricey. There's plenty of cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance, and if you want to go into the downtown, you're right next to a Metro line, where an L1 or L3 line will take you just about anywhere you want to go. If there was one quibble, it would be that the rooms could be warm at night. I don't think the air conditioning was on in the winter, which meant you had to cool your room by opening the windows. But that's a minor detail, and not like we spent a lot of time in the room. If this property is in your price range, I would absolutely recommend it.

Enjoyed my stay, the property is easily accessible to the sites of Barcelona; wonderful staff

The employees were very pleasant and accommodating. Located in a beautiful section of town next to The Arena, formerly the old bullfighting ring, now a beautiful modern shopping center, the Metro is just in front of the front doors.

Great hotel, staff, and location. If you are looking for a quiet hotel this is not it. Because of its great location it gets very noisy outside. But besides that it is a great place to stay!!

room view was stunning, room exceptionally clean and front staff was uber friendly - location was great (metro) and decent food nearby - I am only writing more because orbitz is making me but yeah it's an awesome hotel - oh and the rooftop pool is ridiculously cool. if the hotel keeps prices low we will come back again and again until the doorperson doesn't open the door for us anymore. how much more do I need to write about this hotel? I already wrote over 1000 characters and it's asking me for more which is ridiculous. I keep going and going and going and finally I am near the end of the character mark and you're still asking me for more? It's a great hotel. I wrote it. wait, keep going, what? is this a joke? twitter won't let me write this much.
