Hotel Barcelona Catedral

Reviewed 10 March 2012

Hotel Barcelona Catedral is the girl your mum always wanted you to marry but you never noticed; good, dependable, without being exceptional. So, what’s she like then? The Executive Rooms are clean and modern, a decent size and boast a generous bathroom. The wifi is less generous, and only partially mitigated by the availability of three public terminals downstairs (almost always occupied). The service is standard, but, as we discovered after 4 days here, far more friendly than you will receive elsewhere in this tourist-fatigued city. We passed on the expensive breakfast, but my wife enjoyed the upstairs pool area in her downtime whilst I watched the multitude of channels dedicated to Lionel Messi. Barca is a big city whose attractions are spread far and wide, so a judgment on location is particularly subjective. For those looking to be close to the old Gothic Quarter, and close to La Ramblas without being fully immersed in its chaos day and night, this is the perfect choice. Tucked away in a side street near the old Cathedral, you are close enough to the action that you can walk to your destination, but also get a good night’s sleep. Take note though, the walk to La Sagrada Familia is an epic, and the restaurants closest to the Hotel offered mostly over-priced tourist fodder, uninspired at best. All told: good, dependable, without being exceptional.

Spent the weekend at the Barcelona Catedral. The hotel is in a side street virtually opposite the old Cathedral and it is a great location for seeing the old part of the city and also La Rambla. Staff were all very pleasant and very helpful. The rooms are spacious and modern, as is the hotel throughout - the decor and general ambience very chic. It wasn' very busy when we there and we hardly saw anyone else. If there was a disappointment, it was the quite expensive and very basic breakfast. I don't know why they would put a large tray with assorted breads on each table which leaves you almost no room to actually eat your breakfast. Overall though, given the standard of service, the location and the hotel itself, would definitely stay there again.

The staff were friendly, and helpful. The location is great. Quiet, but close to all the city-centre areas. Food seemed a bit over-priced, but with so many restaurants and cafes/tapas bars near by, this wan't a problem
