“Rather disappointing all in all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We booked in to the Hotel Barcelona Catedral after an enquiry for one of their wheelchair accessible rooms/bathrooms. The room was clean and quite spacious with a large comfortable bed. Sadly there was no flip down seat and shower in the bathroom, which would have been easier rather than a bath without hand rails. Though the location was ideal and could not be faulted, we felt the breakfast was really bad, especially for the price. Its a good hotel in a good part of town and just 5 mins walk from the Airport Bus stop, but for the price we paid we thought it was just far too expensive.

BarcelonaHoteles, General Manager at Hotel Barcelona Catedral, responded to this review, 30 April 2012
Dear Guest,

We are sorry if your stay at our hotel was not 100% satisfactory.

We would like to apologize, because we do have one person of the staff new at reception and we did not train that person properly regarding the procedure for guests with special needs. Yes we do have flip down seats for guests that require it. This is our fault and we did immediately correct.

Regarding rates, ... you came in a very high period season. Barcelona was fully, fully booked. The rate that was applied to you was 30% under our rack rate. You paid 245 eur for a triple room, VAT included, in 4* Hotel downtown.

Thank you for your time and positive comments. And we can ensure you we work to be always better than last time.

Receive our best regards from Barcelona.

Anna Castan

We were quite impressed with our stay at the Hotel Barcelona Catedral. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is quite posh looking. Our room contained two beds, and it was decorated in a modern and fun fashion. For example, we had lollypops waiting for us on our pillows instead of the usual chocolates at night. Additionally, the room contained a safe, toiletries, and a hair dryer. The free wi fi in the room was also greatly appreciated.

Location-wise, the hotel was very close to Las Ramblas and the Cathedral. Thankfully, the hotel was on a side street, which we found to be quite quiet and peaceful compared to these areas. The hop on/hop off busses were nearby - we thought this bus was a necessity given the huge size of Barcelona and the distance between the main attractions and sights. We went back and forth regarding whether we should stay in another area (the Eixample, etc.) or stay closer to Las Ramblas. I am happy with the choice that we made.

The only negative is that the hotel was incredibly expensive compared to our other stays in Spain. Of course, we picked the one weekend when Barcelona was playing Madrid for football, so perhaps that led to the high room prices. I can't say that we received a room that was comparable to the money we spent.

You couldn't find a better location, central to everything going on, with just enough privacy to escape the masses. A peaceful roof terrace, crisp and modern facilities, and most helpful staff ranks this hotel as one of the best. We didn't see any other hotel that comes even close on our travels around Barcelona.
We'll be back!
