      Historical Traveler Reviews Catalonia Born Barcelona

      Very nice hotel

      from

      The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and polite. The buffet breakfast was BRILLIANT! It was included in the price of the room when we stayed. They did ham, eggs etc. everything!

      The rooms are a little small but the bathroom is very nice. The shower cubicle is big and the bathroom has a marble floor.

      The location of the hotel is also very good. Its within walking distance of all the attractions. The rail station is a 2 min walk away so it is easy to get to the hotel from the airport.

      This hotel is recommended.

      Great accomodation!

      from

      I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, it was a great find. Excellent breakfast and services, friendly staff, reasonable room rates. And it is in a great location, within easy walking distance to many restaurants and tourist sights. I would choose this place again.

      Good value.

      from

      We spent 4 nights here and everything was as we excepted. Relatively cheap, clean hotel within walking distance from many interesting tourist attractions and only few minutes to metro. Nice and helpfull staff. Good breakfast.

      Walking from Barri Gothic to the hotel can be scary at night because of the narrow and dark alleys, but we had any problems with that. (you can walk via main streets if you want...)

      We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap and clean hotel.

      Not so Great Outside but Great Inside

      from

      My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights before going on a Mediterranean cruise. From the outside the area looks a bit run down but the hotel is modern and clean inside. The rooms are a bit small but its adequate and the bathroom was quite new and well appropriated. The breakfast buffet is good and we just walked every where. I wouldn't walk in the inside streets at night but I would definitely stay there again.

      Its not 5 star but for the price, its a very good hotel.

      Excellent Hotel

      from

      Very clean Hotel with helpful friendly staff. Situated in an area which seems to be both residential and commercial with loads of small interesting shops selling just about everything. Very close to Arc de Triomf station (200 mtrs). Area looks a bit run down on approach but the hotel is very modern. Rooms a bit on the small side but clean and adequate. Nice bathrooms with good showers/baths. Very well placed for walking to La Rambla, Place de Cataluyna and loads of other places. Breakfast buffet is superb. Tends to be bit of noise in early morning (around 0600 hrs) when local businesses put out their bins and put up the shutters of their shops. Also seems to be a local habit around this time to converse with your neighbour in as loud a voice as possible!

      Normal "big city" security awareness is required but we had no problems. It was quite refreshing that during the whole stay no one pestered us trying to sell something.

      Would I go back to the same Hotel -- YES

      Would I recommend it to friends -- YES.

      NB -- evening meal in Hotel is great value.

      Good for the price

      from

      If you are put in a room at the back of the hotel be aware you will be woken every night at 3 am by the gabage truck collecting refuse, ask for a room at the front of the hotel. Hotel menu very small eat out. Apart from the afore mentioned hotel clean and comfortable.

      Good location

      from

      Stayed here April 2003. Appreciated the 20 minutes direct from airport to metro/train station Arc de Triunfa just across the street. Room was good, breakfast excellent and hotel is very near for Gothic quarter, Ramblas etc

      Nice location but room small and dark

      from

      Stayed here in July 2003 and the location was perfect - just round the corner to Arc de Triomphe and within walking distance of some great eating places. I had a fabulous time in Barcelona and fell in love with the place would tell everyone to visit this fabulous city. However, our room was small and dark. There wasn't really room to swing a cat and we had a tiny little window on a lower floor that looked out into an enclosed dark area. Thankfully we were that enchanted with Barca that we didn't spend much time in the room. I felt claustrophobic in this teeny-tiny room!

      Great breakfast!

      from

      Nice, clean, spacious rooms, a little out the way though. Friendly staff who helped us out when our on-line booking was mishandled!

      Nice Hotel, Nice People

      from

      I was concerned about booking a hotel here due to the lack of information and pictures that existed on the place. The inside of the hotel was very nice & modern. The hotel staff spoke very good English and were of tremendous help to us. The room itself was on the small side, but the bathroom had two showers with very hot water. The hotel itself is on a street called REC Comtal, not Comtal, so it is farther away than we were hoping for. The neighborhood felt safe during the day, but was a bit sketchy at night. A little further away from things than I wanted to be, but the walk to the beach and the touristy sites is doable. Overall a nice experience & would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from the noise of Las Ramblas - as long as you're willing to spring 3 or 4 Euros for the cab ride back late at night. Also relatively close to the Metro.

      ... people. We love everything Mother Nature has to offer us but most especially the water. It doesn't matter how small a body it is, we love it...BUT throw in the sounds of waves crashing on a beach and the chatter from seagulls, and we are done-good to go. Today was no different. The Mediterranean was as blue as blue could be with waves rising to the perfect crest before breaking into a fierce whitewash that threatened to take you off your feet if you ventured ...

      With all our changes confirmed I felt excited about getting off the ship tomorrow! Toby was upset about the cost involved to change the airfare. I was upset that my mistake cost me a day of shopping in Barcelona. ..I kept thinking about all the shoes I didn't get to buy. We got dressed ...

      Week 19. Approaching 5 months at a flying rate! The days here at the lake go by far quicker than normal days. I forget what time it is and go sprinting back to the mobile home at top speed in hopes I'm not to late for dinner. I've got to be there on time otherwise my meal goes to the dog, who really doesn't mind if I'm late. Cheeky bugger. Before breakfast I drove my grandfather to your typical corner store, Aldi, to snap up the bargain he has had his eye on for weeks now, ...

      ... which we had to hike. No wonder it had vacancies and was
      really cheap. We laughed the entire way up the mountain and it was definitely a
      “is this real life” moment. The hostel- IN AND OUT- was really nice though, it
      was clean and was a non for profit employing people with special needs. We also
      got free breakfast and had cheap lunches which were really convenient. We slept
      in a room that held 10 people so the 6 of us had 4 french room mates. After we
