I need to start off by saying that I only booked one night at the Catalonia Park Guell because the other hotel where I had been staying was full on the 21st April. For some reason, this weekend it was extremely hard to find ANY hotel room in Barcelona, so the Catalonia Park Guell had to suffice.
The hotel just looks old and tired, with everything reminding me of the late 80’ies or early 90’ies. Definitely not my first choice of décor. The rooms look cheap and overused, definitely not cozy and inviting. Even though everything was clean, it just doesn’t feel nice. Internet connection (free) was slow and erratic. Breakfast was not included (it costs €13) and if you want to use the safety box, you will be charged 5€. No comment.
But the worst was the noise. The rooms are very poorly isolated and you can hear every step and conversation in the hallway, every car driving by in the street, and even the running water in the room next door!
It’s a shame actually, because the staff is very friendly and professional, and everything was smooth from check-in to checkout. Service is the only reason I rated this hotel 'poor' and not 'terrible'.
I probably wouldn’t have bothered writing a review at all, but at €180 for one night, I just feel this was a total rip off.
