    Hotelul mi-a placut foarte mult. Este foarte curat, este liniste, camerele sunt spatioase, micul dejun bogat. Este vis-a-vis de statia de metrou si langa gara. Camera dubla a fost 100 eur./noapte.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Hotel Torre Catalunya Barcelona

    Absolutely gorgeous

    from

    booked this hotel over the internet. Arrived on 17th October for two nights. On first impressions thought the hotel was lovely. We stayed on the 17th floor. Our room was great, it was really clean, and the bathroom was good too. We paid £175 euros for two people for two nights, this did not include breakfast. When we arrived at the airport we got a taxi to the hotel and were charged £38 euros. We found out afterwards we were ripped off, and that it should cost no more than £20. Ask for a price before you get in. Overall we had a fantastic time. Barcelona is really lovely. We went by taxi to Las Ramblas, which is worth visiting. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

    Disappointed

    from

    After reading all the reviews for the Torre Cataluyna on Trip Advisor, I was expecting a decent hotel - but was very disappointed. Yes, it's a big hotel (rather souless), with large bedrooms (very nice bathroom) and great views. And OK at 75 EUR the night it's not expensive for Barcelona. BUT I was very disapointed with the location (right opposite the station with all the usual problems that entails especially at night), quite far from the centre of town with no decent bars/restaurants in the vicinity, the staff were pretty hopeless and as for the services at the hotel - there didn't appear to be any!

    I asked for a non-smoking room - told I would be allocated one - then given a room that was clearly a smoking room and when querying this was told there were no non-smoking rooms!!

    The hotel is only half finished being renovated and despite its 'Gran' name, and 4 * + certainly doesn't warrant another stay. You can find nicer hotels in better areas in Barcelona.

    Great City , Great Hotel

    from

    From arrival to departure and the days in between for 74 euros a night you will not find better value. First impressions of the room were superb, large comfortable and well equipted. However when you slide back the large mirrored door you enter bathroon heaven!! Huge shower, separate bath, double vanity units, fluffy towels - the list goes on. If you can drag yourself away from the wide screen tv and well stocked mini bar you are only 100 yards from the metro which in minutes takes you to many parts of the city. Whats more the "bus touristic " which is a hop on hop off service that takes you to every point of interest stops outside the station which is 100 yards away.

    Great Stay!

    from

    I stayed here for 4 nights in October with my brother. The hotel was great. Excellent amenities, and the 75 euro per night rate is unbeatable. Breakfast was not included, and the spa wasn“t ready, but the cleanliness of the room and its features made up for that. The hotel is not walking distance to Las Ramblas, but during the day, you can take the metro (15 minutes) or the RENFE train to Plaza Catalunya for 1.10 Euro. At night after midnight during the week,and presumably later on weekends, you can take a taxi or bus number 2 from plaza catalunya. We stayed in non smoking room with 2 twin beds.

    Perfect ... with some drawbacks

    from

    Last week we stayed four nights at the Torre catalunya.

    Although our stay was very pleasant, we encountered some problems.

    On our arrival at 19.00 (!!) are room was not ready.

    Finally we got a room on the 9th floor. This floor had only recently been opened (even the bellboy had never been on that floor before) and everything was brand new : the carpets curled and looked as if they had just been put on the floor, the wardrobe had not been cleaned and the shelves and mirror were very dusty. We had the impression that this room had just been prepared in a hurry, without ever been cleaned thoroughly just to give us a double room as booked.

    Our room was smaller than others (corner room) but very cosy.

    Furthermore we discovered that the so appalling "spa with massage rooms, sunbed, heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna, hydro-massage, Gym" (as advertised on the site) is non-existing and will be for quite some time.

    The hotel is still in full construction (apparently they started from the top (23rd floor) downwards and have arrived at the 9th floor) but as the spa is situated on -3 you can imagine that swimming will not be for the near future.

    Nevertheless, we had a super stay in Barcelona, a terrific city.

    Although the hotel is not very central, you have the train and metro station just next door.

    The view on the 23rd floor is indeed breathtaking and the elaborate breakfast is worth mentioning.

    We only fear that, once the spa will be finished and all promised (and advertised) services will be in working order, the prices will rise ... as high as the 23rd floor !!

    Enjoy the view!!

    from

    My partner and I stayed there for 5 nights during the UK bank holiday week (30 Aug). We had a room on 18th Floor with views of the sea and the Olympic stadium. Rooms are great, modern with all the facilities you need. Huge marble bathroom with a massive walk-in shower and separate deep bath tub. Chocolates on arrival and prompt room service. They even put satin mats by the bed each night!!!

    The panaramic views of Barcelona from the 23rd floor restaurant are breath-taking and worth the stay just for that!

    We paid 70 euros per night bed & full breakfast. Disappointed that the spa in the basement was not yet built, it will be ready by Dec 2004 I was told by reception.

    Rooms better than the 5 star Grand Marina that we were given a full tour of during our stay.

    Great!!!

    from

    The room was really excellent, new, very spacious and comfortable. I was a little disappointed when I learned that there wasn't a coffee maker and the existing room service. I didn't really care knowing they just opened recently and the reception were friendly and very helpful. It is really worth it considering we just paid like 80 euro a night. There was also the famous Churros with the chocolate dip outside the hotel opened till 6 am in the morning. Very accessible to everywhere.

    Stunning Rooms !!!!

    from

    Absolutely fantastic rooms. We had a 22nd floor room and the view is just awesome - rest of the lower floors are still being completed but you wont here any noise at all. Great location just £3 in a cab to centre of the city and literally 1 minute walk to the train station. You can also use the rooftop outdoor pool of sister hotel The Expo right next door - Awesome value at just £78 euros per night for the room (it had a 32" ws tv and hifi system ) - Highly recommended.

    Perfect!

    from

    Perfect hotel, only opened two months ago.Near the train (renfe) and the subway. I got a room on the 20 th floor where the view was breath taking. The rooms are very big with modern furniture and great design. The WC has fantastic it had one shower and also a bathtub. The staff is very polite. We paid 75 euro for night. Definitely deserves another stay. And Barcelona is great!!!! Enjoy it.

More beggars here than I've seen in total this trip, most with dogs- is that to attract sympathy? I walked Las Ramblas up to the big piazza and over to the department store - for some reason I do that here, a huge sale on, 70%25 off most products, some people would have a ball! nothing for me. I like Barcelona, probably because it's familiar but it doesn't 'move' ...

He wanted to go show us the city but since I was already lying on the bed, he agreed to let us nap until lunchtime. At promptly 1pm he stuck his head in the room and asked if I was ready to go (obviously not, I was still in bed…). So I hurried to get ready because I felt bad for making him wait.
