“Great hotel, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

I booked this hotel only based on the good reviews I had read, and it turned out that everyone was right. Location-wise Torre Catalunya is just a tiny bit off, but still offers walking distance to many attractions (for example The Magic Fountain of Montjuic).

The hotel was quiet and very clean and modern. I got a corner room (fourth floor, I think) and was very happy with how the big windows let in a lot of light. There are thick curtains though, so you don't have to worry about light when sleeping.

The only negative thing I can think of is that the in-room CD player didn't work. I told the friendly staff about this, and they promised to get it fixed, but didn't. Not a big thing.

Breakfast was wonderful, in the penthouse restaurant that offers a truly amazing view of Barcelona. Be sure to go up there!

Next time I visit Barcelona I would definitely consider staying here again. I really recommend this hotel.

Three cheers for the Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya! Location, room, service and food were perfect for our needs - a "young" middle aged couple on a weekend break! We would recommend without hesitation this hotel to any similar couple considering a break in Barcelona. Look for room on the higher floors as the view is spectacular.

Easily accessible to all of Barcelona via bus, train, metro.
Hotel staff are excellent.
Rooms were large and clean with great views of Barcelona.
The restaurant on the 23rd floor has panoramic views over the whole of Barcelona - has to be seen to be believed.

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and although not the prettiest externally you cannot fault its location for accessing the city - tour buses, metro and trains right on its door step. Although we had booked a standard room we were given a complimentary upgrade at check in by the receptionist (thanks Ingrid). The room was large, clean and airy and being on the 15th floor had wonderful views of the city. Didn't avail of breakfast but did get room service on one occassion and have no complaints. Mini bar expensive but supermarket next door so you can stock up yourself. The restaurant on 23rd floor is well worth a visit and has the most amazing views of Barcelona, although we didnt eat there we did sit and have a drink and watched the lights come on all over the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors to take advantage of the views

Nice place with access to central train-metro station. Large rooms with marble bath and perfect view of the city. It is better to select a room in high roof (>14). Polite and friendly reception people. It is 15 min from the downtown by metro. Taxi all the day in the entrance of the hotel. Expensive breakfast, but it is not needed (a lot of choices for breakfast very close to the hotel). A supermarket is in the same building with the hotel, while there are many cafe restaurants and fast food 50 meters from the hotel. No free Interent (10 euro/24h)
