Best hotel I’ve stayed in.

Everything about this hotel was perfect! The location was central to a lot of landmarks, sights and transport stops. The room was phenomenal, the staff were extremely helpful and I would highly recommend it.

Nice Place to Stay in El Born

I needed a last minute Place to stay for a week in Barcelona. The Catalonia Born had been personally recommended and it was great. Reasonable cost, clean and comfortable, and quiet room.

Fantastic stay!

We had a wonderful time at Catalonia Born. Such a cute hotel, with everything you need at your fingertips. We got a free upgrade to a room with a view of the Arc de Triomph on one side and the Sagrada Familia on the other. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was spacious, everything very clean and modern. We didn't have time to enjoy the complimentary "tea time," but appreciated that we had the option. Thanks for everything!

Very pleasant stay

All staff were polite and friendly without being too stiff. I was in one of the suites which was as expected from the images on their website. Very clean also. Only issue I had was that the member of staff who checked us in, stated we had the best suite on offer. This wasn't the case. I didn't mind that it wasn't but it is best to say nothing than to exaggerate.

The room was small but adequate. No AC. Smoking in the rooms could be smelled. The bathroom was moldy and towels were old and dingy.

We stayed in the suite, which was very spacious, and most enjoyable. They gave us a welcome bottle of champagne and macaroons. Breakfast was delicious, so much variety. We have no complaints, and would gladly recommend this hotel.

Wonderful Hotel Wonderful Staff

The Catalonia Born is wonderfully situated and within comfortable walking distance of all the sights in the Born and Gothic area of Barcelona. The staff are immediately welcoming , very friendly and full of knowledge of the area. The hotel is immaculately clean. Our room was quite small but more than sufficient for our needs. The breakfast was fantastic, again always served by happy friendly staff. I was really sad to have slept in on our last morning (the hotel is very quiet at night) and missed my last breakfast - the Catalonia meats are a real treat- but that will only ensure that we come back soon. The bar staff are great and creat a warm homely atmosphere, many guests from all over the world gather there for a chat at night. I spoke to guests from Australia, Canada and Portugal (we are Scottish ). It was my birthday during our stay and the barman surprised us with a lovely bottle of Cava in our room. It was only thanks to the attentive reception staff that I didn’t miss my reason for being in Barcelona, as unknown to me the match day had moved from Sunday to Saturday. Thankfully the reception staff overheard a conversation and stepped in to save the day ! ( the match was incredible and Messi scored a hat-trick ). The surrounding are is full of bars , restaurants and cafes. I can not recommend this wonderful hotel highly enough. We are definitely returning as soon as we can

Ideal for site seeing in BCN

This hotel was ideally situated to explore BCN. It is situated in the old part of BCN which is full of character. It has great bars and restaurants and cafes, and some independent shops. It is walking distance to the big attractions, if you like walking. Otherwise nothing is more that a short taxi ride away.

Super location, silent and clean

I live next doors, but forgot my keys and had to find a place to stay over night. Very friendly staff welcomed me after 01AM and gave me nice room with balcony to the street. To my surprise it was more silent than my own bedroom! Over all the room was clean and beds comfy. The hotel is located in an old building, so not every wall is straight or surface polished, but it only gives some extra charm. Roof top pool and gym are small but well functioning and tidy. But probably the best part was the breakfast (13 € extra cost) that had heaps of options and value for the money. Out of the ordinary rich hotel brekky, this one had fresh home made green juices, hummus with veggies sticks, nuts, pollen and goji berries with your various choices of yoghurts, rich chocolate cake, cava and other local goodies. Friendly staff was flexible and helpful, which is not the default setting in the city of Barcelona.

Great Location and Service

My husband and I stayed at Catalonia Born for 3 nights in October 2019. We really enjoyed this hotel and the location. It was a short walk to many bars and restaurants. The daily happy hour with free tapas was an added bonus, especially when travelers aren't used to eating such a late dinner. The weather wasn't ideal to make use of the rooftop and pool but I think that would be a really great spot in warmer months. All staff we encountered at the property were friendly and helpful.

Stay at Catalonia Born

The hotel is conveniently located and the rooms are fine. I was hoping that there are slippers in the room but this is apparently not standard. Also the iron I borrowed is old so I have to be careful not to make stain on my white shirts when using it. Also was not asked about my preference for room when checking in, so was given a room right in front of the elevator, which I did not prefer.
