Staff were all very attentive and helped out with good English. The breakfast was nice too, buffet shouldn't put anyone off. 15 minute walk from las ramblas and walked to the...

The Catalonia Diagonal hotel is not a bad hotel. Located away from the tourist hotspots it affords a bit of peace and quiet. Reception staff is friendly at check-in but beware of pick-pockets here. Keep your hands on camera and hand bags. In fact all your luggage. A chap had his back-pack taken whilst he was checking in when we...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your nice description of our hotel, including location and services. We are proud to know that you had a nice stay in our hotel.

I stayed here while on a Road Scholar tour - Barcelona and Madrid. I came a day early and paid for an extra night on my own. I thought the price for the room I had was high because of the size, noise and lack of natural light. I also think that in general Barcelona is more expensive than Madrid....

Great central location 1-2 blocks from area of shopping, restaurants, Gaudi Pedrera. Large rooms with some luxury, pleasant staff, excellent breakfast. Room had balcony facing the street and there was much street noise but it was veru well soundproofed with the double doors to the street closed.

I just spent a weekend in Hotel Catalonia Diagonal and I'm very happy about this place. It is very well located, has pleasant staff and very good breakfast.

Great location. Rooms could be bigger. Good breakfast. Enjoyed it. We would stay there again should we visit Barcelona in the future. With our room on the first floor it was very convenient especially if the elevator was crowded.

We stayed in this hotel on a group tour, and were not at all pleased with the condition of the common areas (which we had to use because the rooms were so small, dark, and uncomfortable), the 18 euro breakfast (which overpriced and not well staffed), or the constant rumble of the subway trains.

I was a little apprehensive after reading some negative reviews but we were quite happy. This is not a luxury hotel but then for £75 a night you can't complain. The rambles is a good 20 min walk but the main attractions are close. Also a good choice of shops and restaurants on your doorstep. Spotlessly clean beds and bathroom....

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
