Great location, very good facilities

The hotel has a very small pool but enough to have a splash and cool down. The gym is also very good. The rooms are spacious. And the location is perfect. It was close to all main touristy places.

Central location, clean and friendly

If you want a good, clean hotel that is centrally located to explore Barcelona then this hotel is well suited. Less than a 5 minutes walk from Arc de Triomf train station this hotel is central to many of the sites Barcelona has to offer with the beach and Sagrada Familia both within 25 minute walk and Barcelona Cathedral within a 10 minutes walk. Plenty of bars and cafes near by and the hotel staff were always helpful. Would look at stopping here again next time we visit.

Second time staying at this hotel

We have stayed at Catalonia Born for the past two years. We loved it so much the first time we had to revisit this summer. The buffet breakfast is brilliant, lots of variety and great quality. There are snacks and drinks available from 5pm - 11pm which is included in the price. The staff are lovely and the hotel rooms are clean and a good size. The rooftop pool is small but perfect for a quick dip when you have had enough of the city life. Not a lot of sun loungers but there is so much to see in Barcelona we didn’t really use the pool to much. I’d definitely recommend this hotel and will be staying when we return to Barcelona.

6 Days in Barcelona

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was ample in size and we found the bed very comfortable. The breakfast buffet had a great variety of good food to get us started for the day. The staff was top notch and helpful. Lastly the location is close to the heart of the city. Perfect

Perfect Location for all things Barcelona!

I believe the hotel provides a good standard service, however it is the location is the biggest reason ill stay there again. The proximity to anything from the metro, beach, culture to groceries and Landry services was perfect.

Catalonia Born

Excellent location, rooms quiet and clean, we had a view onto the street which was great ...and the double pained glass kept out any street noise if we wanted. The air conditioning was only for cooling - a bit of a shock for us as when we arrived in late May this year, 2019, the nights and days were quite cool ...we had to get an in-room fan ..supplied promptly ...but nevertheless. When we arrived the front desk reception seemd fairly impassive ...but the bar tender made up for it with his helpfulness and service. The breakfast which we had on one occasion was excellent with all the quality local products that we had so enjoyed in Barcelona elsewhwere - but priced as a hotel breakfast.

Only One Day but nice hotel

Unfortunately something happened with my reservation at my original hotel and I booked one night at the Catalonia Born. Very reasonably priced, large clean room, very good breakfast. Little far from Las Ramblas but close to La Sagrada Famalia.

Wonderful!

Our stay at Catalonia Born was wonderful! The room was beautiful and modern. We loved the black and white photo of an old Barcelona street that was across the back wall of our room. The staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast was so diverse and amazing. I will go back here if I’m ever in Barcelona again.

Wonderful Hotel in a Great Location

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel Catalonia Born. The hotel is in a perfect location for walking to almost everything and their service is amazing. The room was cozy and very clean. We did not eat at the restaurant but we did take advantage of their wine bar and snacks in the evening and had a great time there. The staff was very helpful and we would definitely stay there again if in Barcelona.

barcelona trip

my stay was ok, mainly because the water pressure was low, the snack options available from 17:00 hrs was very poor, no variety (like salad, etc.) when I compared to other hotel catalonia I stayed (e.g. Las Cortes).

Catalonia Born, April 2019

Bathroom needed attention: it needed more light, shower needed tile to be grouted, door into bathroom was chipped at the bottom. The Bedroom was lovely and very comfortable!!!!! Loved the window overlooking the courtyard!!!

Great room, slightly spoilt by building noise from around 9-30 weekdays. Staff were lovely, but could go extra mile, eg when forgot key.

Stayed here for the 5/6th time over the last few years. It remains a constantly pleasant place. Plenty of eateries around and easy access to transport links and the cities La Rambla within walking distance. Nice touches with free snacks and coffees served to guests from 5-11pm . Will return.

3rd time was not a charm

Very disappointed on this stay. 3rd time in 11 months and it was not as I had experienced before. Victor was amazing. Carlos was rude. Nathalia(sp?) did not seem to understand me and did not get the room cleaned or smell free when we 1st asked. Upon arrival when we got to the room it had a smell so we opened the window. We also noted that there was only shampoo in the bathroom. No soap or body wash. We immediately went out and ask Nathalia to clear out the fridge and have soap brought up. We came back very late and nothing had been done. The room was freezing and we found out there is not heat available in April. Strange, for sure. The ladies who handle the breakfast room were amazing and greeted me with hugs the 1st morning and remembered me. Saying goodbye to them was sweet and hugs were a plenty. No person to help with luggage till 9:30am was odd so we asked for the cart and I did it myself. While I adore this Hotel and the location, I was disappointed this time.
