The neighbourhood of the hotel is not as good as expected from the point of view of the tariff. There are few local pubs nearby and a small construction site 1 block away. It did not appear to be very safe esp if you are travelling alone at night. The Wifi internet is expensive [Euro 68/wk, not fast at all (10k/sec download rate) and not enable to download ordinary PDF file!!]. Although I haven't compared with other hotel, I recommend the reader to turn to another hotel.
A lovely hotel with friendly staff. Its location is very convenient for those who want to discover the city, with the metro station right around the corner and Placa de Catalunya just a short walk away.Read more The rooms are good size and the bathroom in the double room we had had both a bath and a separate shower, which was nice. I think other reviewers also mentioned that the rooms on the street front were noisy. That's quite true, you can 'enjoy' the sounds of local life into the early hours... But my courtside room was nice and quiet. For those whose legs are tired from walking around all day or just want something different than a tourist trap for dinner, I can highly recommend the little Chilean restaurant next to the hotel, called Hugo's. Do try their special cocktail, Pisco Sour!Hide
The hotel was pretty good, location good but further from La Ramblas than expected. Staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good although the first morning my husband and I were given a table and then made our way to the buffet only to find that on returning to the table we we were now stuck on the centre table between two other couples and got some dirty looks from the ones we had to ask to move to get to our seats. Bad planning from the waiting staff on table allocation! We went down earlier the next morning and it was a much better table. The only other complaint is that our room was very dark and the view from the window was a blank wall! Other than that it was a clean and pleasant hotel and we would stay there again.
+ convenient location -about ten minutes walk from Gothic quarter and very close to huge park and interesting sites and metro station which we used. Breakfast was good. Quieter than many hotels would beRead more as regards street noise as there was no passing traffic noise at all. English spoken so no difficulties with language.
Lower end business and tourists. Its in a very convenient location but actual hotel just a bit dull . We didn't eat in hotel at all - but i was surprised breakfast was'nt included and €12 for buffet breakfastRead more is a bit stiff when coffe and crossiant across the road cost €2 !!Hide
Thanks to earlier comments that we read here we requested a courtyard room which (unlike the noisy rooms overlooking the street) was a very quiet place. The hotel is clean, the facilities good, the peopleRead more are helpful. This was very important when we were burglaired not far from the hotel. The breakfast is excellent and so is the dinner. The latter was unfortunately not available on Saturday and Sunday but there are good and inexpensive restaurant in the close neighbourhood. To sum up: I can warmly recommend the hotel to everybody.Hide
We loved the Catalonia Princesa! The room and bathroom were large (by European standards). The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great! We had an issue with the water in the bathroom that theRead more helpful hotel staff took care of immediately. The location was perfect. Walking distance to the beach and La Rambla but on a quiet street. We felt safe walking to and from the hotel at night. Try the restaurant next door...Restaurant de Hugo, it is delicious! One word of caution, a Scottish women also staying in the hotel had her purse snatched by a man on a moped as she exited the hotel. Be careful!Hide
I was victim of a hold up. Please give information to guests about where there is a police station and what people shall do. There were other guests during my stay which had the same experiences.
+ Convenience and comfort.
Small and dark room with window on narrow internal courtyard; shower obstructed
