    Very good

    The hotel is basic and good value for money, with very helpfull staff and the location is super, in a quite street but on walking distance from the central spots.

    The room smelled, I would have liked a smokefree room/hotel. And the bed was too short for us, not made for large Dutch men (1m90)

    Superb

    very clean, comfortable, well equipped room, good breakfast, excelent location (only 10 min walk to center), near a nice little square with restaurants and quiet bars

    the internet service was not free of charge (and even too expenssive- 2 eur for 10 minutes) as is in many other hotels.

    Fabulous

    Good value for money--I would recommend it.

    The desk clerk insisted on seeing my passport, which I didn't have because for me this was a weekend trip up from Valencia, where I was staying for a month. He would not accept my Louisiana driver's license as a valid id. Luckily he accepted my wife's (Spanish) national id. Also, the toiletries did not include conditioner.

    Exclusive

    The hotel staff very friendly and obliging.

    The hotel should give better location directions on their webpage. I used inaccurate google directions and wasted time. The hotel is well located near the metro Arc de Triomf but do not highlight this.

    Superb

    The hotel stuff was very kind and helpful anytime it was needed. The breakfast was pretty good and tasty (hams, cheeses, natural squeezed fruit juices & on the place baked breads and pastries). The room was cleaned very well and all the toiletries in room were replaced as well on a daily basis. The bedroom was roomy and the bed was pretty comfort. The location was great and central, 10-12 min walking distance from Ramla st. and around 5-7 min walking distance from Barri Gotic area where most of city's night life is located.

    The walls that separated the room from the hole were plaster walls, which caused some noises when people were walking near the room door. because of the fact that the hotel is located in an old quarter its very hard to explain taxi drivers the hotel location (even with the hotel card), and we used to take taxis to the nearest boulevard (The Arc De Triumph boulevard), which was about 40-50m from the hotel entrance.

    Exclusive

    I was instead rescheudled at the Catanlina Hotel in the Gothic Center by the Catalonia Princessa staff.

    I greatly appreciated the Catalonia Princessa staff's initiative to reschedule my arrangements at the Catalonia Cathedral Hotel due to a hotel situation. It showed how the hotel values customer's service by demonstrating a sensitivity to their customer's needs.

    Superb

    The room on the 7th floor was quiet, the bathroom large, clean, and well appointed. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The location is convenient. Almost next door, there is a minimarket ( convenience store) and two restaurants; a Chile type restaurant and a tapas bar/simple restaurant. I ate in the latter and enjoyed 3-course daily-menus with wine for about 10 euros per meal.

    The supply of cold water to the bath was insufficient.

    Very good

    Location is perfect. Located near the arc de triumph subway station. Supermarket nearby along with resturants and cofee shops, within the gothic quarter, 10-15 mins walk from las ramblas or 2 metro stations away.

    Service wasn't the best around, however it's adiquate.
