Booked four nights at the Caledonian for a romantic Barcelona break. The hotel is ideally located next to Universitat metro and is within walking distance of many city attractions. Staff were helpful and courteous throughout our visit. We stayed in room 609 on the top floor, clean and very nicely furnished, with its own outdoor terrace with wonderful views of... More

Its a five minute walk into Plata Catalunya, which is the centre point for everything you want to see in the city, La Rambla branches off it and also the Cathedral. The room... More

The location was perfect, near the metro station as well as near the center even by walk. The staff were friendly, they had on onsite car park, free WiFi and secure luggage storage. The room was really big, there was a balcony and the travel cot was perfect.

After reading several mixed reviews on here, we travelled open minded not knowing what to expect. Upon arrival which was off the airport autobus shuttle (which dropped us opposite) we were impressed with the reception area and staff which were to greet us. We requested a higher room on the rear of the property as I had taken the advice... More

I spent three nights in the Caledonian Hotel for a work trip in mid-October and whilst this hotel looks good online my experience was rather different. I must state this review is only for room 605 which I had the misfortune of staying in and perhaps the rest of the hotel looks like the website suggests. The best place to... More

Tiny single room at the back end of beyond, 6th floor. Clean and basic. Because of the laminate floor throughout corridors are echoey. Also noise from the main street. Nothing to recommend it. I have stayed in bigger and better rooms for half the price.

We had read the reviews before we booked so because of mixed reviews we took a chance. We e mailed reception before hand and requested a 6th floor room with a terrace if possible.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
