We paid a reduced rate so didn't expect a room with the best view on the higher floors and we didn't get one. However, our room one the first floor was fantastic. The bathroom had a soaking tub which is a feature I prefer and a shower of course. They provided a bathrobe and slippers in the bathroom and also another light weight bathrobe in the bedroom....that was a special touch. They were kind enough to provide a bathroom scales which with large, late night Spanish dinners is a good idea. Bed was large and very comfortable. If you were in New York City you would pay up to five times as much for a comparable room. While not a Gaudi, the hotel was designed by Lluís Domènch i Montaner as a private home in 1907. How exciting to actually be staying in one of the fabulous architectural creations of Barcelona. It is located on the beautiful Passeig de Gràcia. Staff was helpful. I didn't eat at the restaurant and missed their jazz night.
A nice quiet hotel with clean rooms, good facilities and welcoming friendly staff. The hotel is positioned 2 minutes from the Metro at Lesseps so makes it ideal for getting into the heart of Barcelona quickly and easily. Guell park is only 5 minutes walk.
Breakfast was better than we expected from some of the other reviews and the room was excellent and clean with a newly fitted bathroom with walk in shower.
Thank you for making the whole Barcelona experience a great one.
Loved our stay at Catalonia Park Guell. Very good value for double room for a week. Pool very nice with lots of sun loungers. Only 10 mins on Metro from centre of town. Only negatives were: no kettle in room and sometimes a bit noisy. Pool very cold also but nice when hot.
Overall, definitely worth it!
The Catalonia Rubens is located in a quiet area and very close to Park Guell,one of the city*s emblems, and enjoys …More
I booked this apartment knowing that I would have to walk to collect the key and then walk to reach the apartment. With suitcases it wasn't the greatest experience, but it was worth it! The apartment is located in a nice part of town, and there are some great restaurants near by. We'd recommend BO, which is only two blocks away in a little square, they do the most amazing food. It is a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro (not far compared to some places) so its great for getting to other areas of Barcelona.There is lively chatter in the evenings, but it is no worse than any other city might be. And the apartment itself is beautiful (the photos are entirely accurate) for a two bedroom apartment it is well worth the money! Me and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed it, and loved our little apartment.
Very different to a usual hotel, no check in, no interaction with staff. Everything done via email or messages once arrived at the hotel. Sounds weird but it works! Great hotel, perfect location to every thing, helped us with parking for our car, website is fantastic from the owner with all kinds of tips etc. restaurant suggestions which we used for a dinner (tapas place around the corner) which ended up being the best dinner of our whole trip. Great hotel and recommended!
Formerly a separate town, much of Gràcia retains a village-like, bohemian atmosphere with interesting shops and bars and some of the best restaurants in the city. It is best known for Parc Güell, designed by Gaudí. This beautiful landscaped park overlooks the city and features many of his trademark flourishes. The square of Plaça Rius i Taulet is the heart of Gràcia. Plaça del Sol is the place to be seen after dark.
