    Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Hotel

    Great Hotel - Great Location

    from

    Just arrived back from this hotel. I have always found this site helpful in the past so when I was taking my girlfriend to Barcelona for xmas I looked for good reviews. I wasnt let down. This hotel is superb. Great spacious rooms, excellent friendly staff and plenty to eat @ breakfast. The fast & efficient Metro system stops literaly outside the hotel and is four stops from Placa de Catelonia (where its all at) Taxi from Las Ramblas = 6euro/ Airport 26euro. The Airbus again stops outside and is 4euros to the airport. I'll stop going on, but i hope this helps. I'd recommend this hotel to young/old......anyone and everyone. Enjoy!

    Lived up to all the good reviews

    from

    We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July, and had a large triple room for the 3 of us (11 year old son). I had checked the Tripadvisor reviews carefully before choosing a hotel, and chose this one because it had a rooftop pool, and sounded as if a triple room would be larger here than in the older central hotels.

    It lived up to all the reviews and met all of our expectations. The metro is just outside the front door, and it is a quick journey into the centre. We also took a bus to and from the centre. It is also the first stop for the airport bus, which was very easy to use (and airconditioned). The breakfast buffet is huge and very varied. It was very hot in Barcelona, so an airconditioned room was essential. We can recommend the open-top tourist buses (hop on - hop off), which were a great way of seeing the city in very hot weather.

    Helpful staff, busy hotel

    from

    We stayed at this huge hotel for 10 nights in June 2005. It seemed to cater for large parties, including schools, sports teams and business trips and it was exceptionally busy while we were there. The bedrooms are small but very clean and well equipped with satellite TV, hairdryer, minibar etc. There was maid service twice a day and all of the staff were eager to help. The snacks served in the bar/ cafeteria are good value and the Piano Bar is a lovely oasis of calm. The rooftop pool area is small, with around 30 sun loungers which didn't seem to be enough for the 300+ rooms. We found that the pool and terrace area was quiet throughout the day but got really busy from around 5pm when the school trips etc returned and it all got a bit rowdy.

    The views from the roof over Montjuic and the 'Musical Fountains' are amazing but there is always a lot of traffic noise and this means that it's not the best place to relax.

    As other reviewers have mentioned the hotel is ideally placed for local transport and a late night taxi home from the bottom end of La Rambla is not too expensive (approx. 7-10 Euros). As a short stay city break hotel this is perfect but I probably wouldn't recommend it for longer than a few days.

    I'll be back again next year

    from

    excellent hotel! excellent location! excellent breakfast!

    i cant think of a bad word to say about this immaculately kept hotel! the staff were friendly and on hand at all hours of the day!

    the metro is literally less than a minutes walk away from the hotel so you can wake up in the morning, have a shower(which is very powerful, unlike a lot of hotels i have stayed in in the past) stroll down to breakfast, which is a variety of pastries, cooked breakfast, cold meat, cereal and fruit and then be on your way for a lovely day out seeing all of the sites in the town. if you want to go for a drink in the local area close to the hotel, i would recommend Club Ibiza, the staff are friendly and you will have a good night! i will be back next year.

    Fab location

    from

    I've just got back from a Business Studies school trip to Barcelona. We stayed at Barcelona Plaza & i have to say it was really good. It had an amazing location, with the Metro on the doorstep, literally. There were bus stops gallore within a short vacinity. The view from the front of the hotel and the rooftop swimming pool were spectacular, you could see the magic fountain & the Palace; along with the rest of Barcelona.

    It is classed as a 4* hotel (not 3*) as this website suggests. It is exactly what i'd expect from a 4*. I'd reccommend staying here to anyone going to Barcelona in the future.

    Great service

    from

    The hotel is in a great location. First stop off from the A1 airport bus, next to a subway stop and next to a Barcelona Tourism bus.

    The only problem is that the room smelled of smoke. Turning on the A/C didn't help so we left the window open most evenings.

    Although the hotel is next to a major intersection the rooms are insulated for sound extremely well.

    Exceptional staff - friendly and courteous. If I were to grade the hotel it's about a 3.5 star hotel. Rooms were very clean, it's the smoke in the air that bothered us.

    Great Hotel at a Great Price

    from

    I travel to Barcelona 4 or 5 times a year, always stay at the Plaza. Highly Recommended.

    Fantastic Value Sept 04

    from

    We stayed here for four nights and found all the facilities to be of the highest quality.

    Although not in the centre of the city there is a metro station outside the front door and you can get to anywhere in the city wihin minutes.

    Breakfast buffet was excellent and we had an evening meal in the bar on one occasion which we found very good value.

    All in all an excellent hotel which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone

    Absolutely Loved it!!!

    from

    I would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to stay at this hotel. The hotels area is amazing and is in the center of everythig. The staff is nice and the hotel has everything you need to acomodate anyone.

    ... You think?!) also, the top of the city, so crazy views. We decide to metro home, which requires a walk down the hill to the metro station. We find ourselves in narrow winding unmarked residential streets. Moms are walking their kindergarten aged kids home from school. One of my favorite Barcelona adventures, a little insight into real life. Somehow, as usual, Norm successfully masters the winding unmarked roads, and lands us right at the metro station. A 6 minute ride later ...

    It may appear that every restaurant we have dined at so far has been excellent but unfortunately tonight was not going to be one of those nights. In fact, it will go down as one of the worst degustation tasting menus we have eaten while in Europe. When ...

    On Monday March 31st we arrived on Barcelona, Spain around midnight! We took a bus to from the airport to our hostel and by the time we were all settled in it was about 2am the next morning. The city of Barcelona never sleeps, in fact clubs don't even open until 2am and close at 7am. Our hostel was really nice and had a huge lounge area, restaurant and bar downstairs. It was almost like a hotel except I was sharing a room with 11 other women. When we woke up the ...

All the little shops that had not been open the last two day were and you could feel everyone getting excited about Christmas. Walking all the little ...

    Once we had regrouped we caught the tram to the beach. We spent the afternoon having a swim and enjoying the sun. We were starting to feel a bit hungry so we headed back and went back to our favourite place ...
