Catalonia Park Guell
Ranked #339 of 517 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 28 November 2012

Rooms are clean, and the bathrooms are nice, but some rooms could do with being a bit more spacious (We asked to move and they were very obliging). Food in hotel is ridonkulously expensive, but there are lots of little local restaurants that are within 10 mins walk of hotel, as well as several lovely little independent shops which are worth a visit, if you fancy something off the beaten track. Don't bother with the breakfast which is pricy at 13 euros a pop - just wander up the hill to the local corner shop which has a great selection of fresh fruit, bread, cold meat and cheese and the staff speak moderately good English and are very friendly. Beer is also nice and cheap! Close to metro station (stop is Valcarca) and is also on a bus route which is longer but takes you right into the centre of town. Wi fi access was rubbish - very, very slow so don't bother bringing the laptop, unless you plan to just watch DVDs on it. Depending on where you are, it can be quite noisy at night due to mopeds zipping past. Most websites which show photos of the pool have been taken from various deceptive angles - the pool is very small, as in the decking area on top of the hotel, and it fills up fast, so if you want a sunbed, get up there early. The hotel do provide a big box of towels for you to use at the pool, which is a nice touch.

I have just returned from Barcelona where I stayed at the Catalonia Park. I had read the reviews which were a bit mixed, but was pleasantly surprised. This hotel is very good value. It is clean, well run and the staff on Reception were very helpful. The Breakfast Buffet is excellent with a wide range and there were delicious pastries! There is a small Bar and I had Pizza one evening from the Snack Bar which was very tasty. They serve food until 10.30 pm. My room was comfortable although I would have liked tea making facilities. Very convenient for the Metro which was easy to navigate. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking main road - they have great views.

The room was clean and the staff polite. It is relatively easy to reach the city center by public transportation since both bus and subway stations are at easy distance from the hotel.
During my stay at Catalonia Park Guell I was very much bothered by the noises in the lobby. The hotel needs renovations.
