“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

I stayed here in January with my 14-year old daughter and we loved it. We had a room in the front, from which we could see the port. Because of the double windows, you don't hear any noise from the street.
We loved the way the room was decorated, the beds were large and comfortable and all amenities were good: flatscreen TV (mostly spanish channels and cnn-stuff, though), large bathroom with good rainshower. The guys at the reception were really nice (one of them, Jan, is Dutch, which is of course especially nice for Dutch guests such as ourselves).
The location is absolutely great. Right by the harbour, and all the nice neighbourhoods such as La Rambla, El Born, Barceloneta, Mare Magnum and the Gothic Quarter can all be reached within a few minutes walk. There are many nice tapas bars in the direct neighborhood of the hotel.
We didn't take breakfast in the hotel. However, I attempted to have diner there in the hotel restaurant, but wouldn't recommend it. The waiters seem slow and incompetent and don't speak English and I didn't like the food.
The only thing that could be better was that the walls between rooms are not soundproof. We could hear everything in the room next door. One night, our neighbors were watching a soccer match (with all the necessary cheering and hollering) until after midnight, but luckily it stopped immediately after we called the reception about this. The other nights were completely quiet. One other minor thing is that the temperature of the central heating could not be regulated from our room so we had to use the aircon, which is of course not very ecologic.

We heartily recommend this place and would certainly come back if we ever visit Barcelona again.

Situated near to front of port area. Very close to Las Ramblas, Gothic area and metro. Room had everything that you need but wasn't special. Very clean. Helpfull reception staff. Do not miss either of the Cathedrals or eating in the marketplace situated on the lefthand side of Las Ramles when walking away from the Port. I would go back to both the hotel and Barcelona four days was not long enough

Room Tip: I asked for a balcony with a view of the Port. I found there was a building in the way and therefore...

A nice hotel with the politest receptionist i know (Angel) warmly welcoming you at the hotel with a smile and humour!

Rooms were nice, clean, spacious, soundproofed, modern (as of recently refurbished), equipped with all the necessaries such as LCD TV, Air-con, safe, minibar, wardrobes, toiletries etc..
The bed and pillows were great, very comfortable, had a nice sleep!
Bathroom also nice with a fancy glass door and tv/radio speakers installed in walls....

The swimming pool area was nice and cosy but swimming pool too small such as mini-pool.

Hotel is situated just outside of La Rambla Square an area full of retail stores, restaurants etc....

I would recommend this hotel to people who want stay in the heart of the centre and don't mind the busy streets and noise etc....If u want a quiet area try something else...

Fantastic Hotel in a fantastic location. Right next to La Rambla (3 min walk max) and within walking distance to most city centre attractions. Hotel is clean and comforable and the receptionists were all extremely helpful. The street it is located on has quite a few restauants and tapas bars which offer a great selection of spainish and catalan cuisine at very affordable prices. Which is more than can be said for the restuarants on the busier thoroughfairs. Which we found way over priced and on the lesser side of average in terms of quality.

Would have no problem recommending this hotel

We went to Barcelona for a City Break spending 3 nights at the Catalonia Port. The location of the hotel is excellent being just a 2 minute walk to the bottom of La Ramblas. There are lots of small shops lining the narrow streets surrounding the hotel and the harbour is also just a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel was exceptionally clean and smart. If I had to fault something I would say that a few tiles in the bathroom could do with replacing along with the extractor fan. I was aware of building work going on in the mornings outside of the hotel but nothing dreadful by any means. I would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future - it exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room so you don't get any noise from guests above you.
