Hotel Barcelona Catedral
Enjoy a peaceful moment
Hotel Barcelona Catedral is a modern four star boutique hotel located next to the Cathedral, only few steps away from the Ramblas. From its beautiful terrace with swimming pool you will appreciate a view on this historic area, enjoy chill out cocktail and eat Mediterranean cuisine. Everything at Barcelona Catedral is made to let you enjoy a peaceful moment...
A creative Mediterranean cuisine is served in the "Capellans" restaurant. But here is also a wide range of restaurants and tapas bars within a 5-minute walk, including many in the popular El Born district.
This review of the Hotel Barcelona Catedral is not a heartening one. Here, the average location, service, food, and drink quality in a two or three star hotel does not even meet the standards of a four-star establishment. Additionally, the visitor has noted that the bath and shower screens are in a state of disrepair, making the management's unresponsiveness to this issue even more concerning. In the end, they have concluded that for the money, there are better options to be found in Barcelona.
This hotel is perfectly located in the Gothic Quarter and only a short walk away from Las Ramblas and the Palace Of Catalan Music. As well as this, there is a delightful swimming pool on the roof which provides a great relief from the hot temperatures - towels can even be collected from the reception desk. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with adequate amenities in the bathroom and a complimentary bottle of water is provided daily. Breakfast is included and consists of a tray of orange juice, coffee, pastries, rolls, preserves, a menu for ordering hot food, and there is even a cereal bar. The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable and there is a Sunday morning and Wednesday evening complimentary guided tour of the area with a fantastic tour guide. You can also enjoy complimentary cheese and wine between 5-5:15pm every day. The taxi to the airport was surprisingly inexpensive at under 40 euros. All in all, it was a superb stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.
First impressions were good. This hotel is smaller in size but well-placed in the historic Gothic Quarter. There is a roof top pool with loungers and towels available. Every night from 5pm for 15 minutes, guests can indulge in a free glass of wine with cheeses, olives, bread and quince paste. Our room was spacious, but our friends had a smaller one. There was a large bathroom, generous wardrobe, and a fridge and electric jug. Unfortunately, there was no liquid milk, so we ended up buying our own. We were surprised to learn that an iron or ironing board was only available for a fee of €5. We were a bit disappointed, as this seemed like taking advantage of guests. Additionally, when moving drinks out of the fridge to make space for our milk and bottled water, I noticed that the ledges had not been cleaned for some time. The inner window curtain also had what looked like cigarette burns in it, one of which seemed to have had an amateur repair. We also had the issue of fixed coat hangers, which are a pain to hang clothes on. Finally, the air conditioning made a regular noise every 15 minutes, becoming distracting at times. All in all, the hotel was okay, but other 4 star accommodations have certainly been better.
This place was awesome! Friendly staff, a daily 15 minute happy hour with complimentary wine and cheese, plus two vouchers for a free cuvée were great perks. The lap pool had sun loungers, and the staff even brought us Aperol Spritz! The beds were comfortable, and the combined bathroom suite was spacious and had been designed with the needs of people with limited mobility in mind. Lots of mirrors too! Breakfast was delicious, and bikes were available to borrow. It was so conveniently located too - everything was close by!

I was beyond impressed with this lodging! Amazing staff and facilities, perfect location - close to the cathedral, and with loads of nearby bars and restaurants. I can't recommend it highly enough!
