Hotel Barcelona Catedral

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had booked a three night stay with Hotel Barcelona Catedral for two reasons: the location right next to Barcelona Catedral in the Gothic Quarter, and the roof top pool. Unfortunately, on our first night, the hotel had to book us to another hotel due to "maintenance issues". Although this other hotel had excellent facilities (including a lovely pool), it was located next to Sagrada Familia, which is a completely different location and far less central/attractive than the extremely popular Gothic Quarter. Not quite the start we had hoped for on our short weekend break. However, the superb staff really did go out of their way to compensate for this unfortunate start. They reduced our bill for the entire stay with 25%, and while we were out enjoying our day they made sure that our luggage was transported directly from our “temporary” hotel to our new room at Hotel Barcelona Catedral. When we arrived at the hotel in the afternoon, our luggage and a bottle of cava was waiting for us in our room. Truly exceptionally well handled, and full score to the booking / customer service team! During our two night stay, we to learn that Hotel Barcelona is a great hotel, mainly due to its location and its rooftop pool. The staff is friendly and helpful. The decor is modern, and the beds are larger than average and very comfortable. The breakfast is nice with a variety of options, and with the option of having your breakfast outside on a lovely terrace (which we enjoy). Make sure you factor in some extra time at breakfast though, due to table service rather than a buffet which most other hotels offer. Only reason why the hotel does not get a full score, is that I noticed after checking out that an unauthorised transaction had been made on my credit card on the day of our departure. After mailing with the hotel, it turns out they had incorrectly charged my credit card with a beer from the mini bar which had in fact been settled in cash at the hotel. Although this appears to be a mistake and the amount will be refunded, charging a guest's credit card without consent and without notifying him is inexcusable in my book. If I had not reviewed my credit card transcript this would not have been noticed, and although it is a small amount it leaves a small stain on an otherwise excellent hotel. Will definitely be back, but check my credit card bill thoroughly afterwards...

A fantastic boutique hotel with every amenity you could possibly need. Lovely helpful staff, great breakfast selection, well cared for and clean premises in a great central location. Added bonuses such as free walking tours and happy hour at the bar was a nice surprise. We participated in the Sunday morning walk around the Gothic quarter, the guide was experienced and knowledgeable and gave great tips on other things to see and do in the area, delivered in both English and Spanish. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We loved our stay - great location and nice hotel. Breakfast good, coffee great, liked 5 pm happy hour (free). A little noisy in the courtyard view room. Hop on hop off bus close. Clean and enjoyable.

Excellent service, rooms were larger than expected (bigger than typical European size), comfortable beds, great little Bar, nice pool at the top of the building and awesome location in the Gothic Area.

Our room at Hotel Barcelona Catedral was very comfortable and the hotel staff helped make our stay super enjoyable. The hotel's location is great and is a very good "home base" while exploring the beautiful city of Barcelona.

I would recommend this hotel the service was excellent, staff was amazing and breakfast was awesome. The hotel was in the middle of everything within walking distance of several churches and sights. The staff was fluent in English and was ready to assist In Any way with suggestions of restaurants and sights.

I stayed here for 3 days & could not have been in a better location. The hotel isn’t new but has a charm about it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the cafe was very comfortable& had good coffee.

Stayed for a few days at the end of our European trip. Clean, comfortable room with good air con. Location brilliant in the gothic quarter just around the corner from the gothic cathedral. Only downside was they decided to do water maintenance whilst we were there which lasted longer than promised. Also room neighbours were a bit loud but the hotel can not control that

The hotel turned off the water for the day for maintenance which was understandable however 3 hours after there was still no hot water & the water was brown when it came out! Hotel staff didn’t even care! Awful!

The location of Catedral is PERFECT. I loved the easy access to the beautiful square, Starbucks, and fun. I liked the casual ambience of the hotel. The rooms were clean, bright and well organized. The staff was helpful and professional. I would certainly recommend a stay for others.
