Great staff. Hotel under construction so we were a little worried upon arrival but we were very comfortable and did not need the Spa anyway.

Very comfortable hotel, great staff

Pros: confortable, great shower, great views, kind staff.
Cons: Business facilities, such as printing, without others (waiter) having access to your document. Corner room air-condotioner. Rooftop Restaurant dinner.
Location: Near Sants railway station. Easy to reach anything. However needs some figuring out, but that is useful learning too. Next door there is a great park.
We stayed in 2 different rooms. One on the 16th floor was a higher category and had a nicer view. Bathrobes and slippers were provided as well. The temperature of the room was perfect. Nice view, quiet, great shower, great bedlinen and beds. The second room was a corner room on the 4th floor, which I was excited about, but it was facing the station and was way too hot in the afternoon, the air-conditioner was either not working right or just could not handle cooling a room with 2 glass walls heated by the strong sun. The staff was helpful and offered us to change the room. The spa in the basement is pleasant, but you need a reservation and not all room fees include it. I had to pay an extra 10 Eu to use it, but it was worth it. It was very relaxing and refreshing after a day of sightseeing. I was told that we could also use the rooftop pool of the Expo hotel next door for free, but we did not try it. Breakfast was $17 Euros, on the expensive side, but was nice, fresh, ample choices, great views. Printing was a bit complicated, you had to do it in the bar, the printer being in the "kitchen" of the bar, so the waiter had to bring it out to you. This is awkward if you did not want to share the information on your document. This could certainly be improved, if they wanted to attract more business travelers. Getting to the hotel from the airport and back is easy with the R, Renfe, train. It is a good idea to buy a pass at the airport at the tourist office.

Worth the Price

Pros: Clean and roomy. Price was good.
Cons: Not much they can do.
Location: Not too far from Gaudi home and Plaza Espana. Great restaurants with exceptional views at the top of the converted bull fighting ring.
Really nice hotel with a very helpful and friendly staff. Located very near the train station. Good value for the money, but not many good dining options close bye.

Torre Catalunya.

Pros: Close to metro, trains, shopping, coin laundry, attentive cosmopolitan staff. We might access this hotel again.
Cons: Our room was not cleaned well by staff. Electrical and AC systems failed twice. Room seemed to have electrical overload problems.
Location: Metro, trains, shopping, access through metro to Olympic village, Sagrada Familia, Ramblas, other areas.
Torre Catalunya is an identifiable, towering hotel as its name well suggests. Overall this hotel is good, its staff is attentive, cosmopolitan and helpful. It is conveniently located across from the train station which I used, and within walking distance from a major shopping center, Las Arenas, and the metro station. Coin laundry facilities are located about four blocks away. Breakfast, which was not included in the room price, has good choices. Its restaurant is located in the hotel's penthouse and provides extraordinary views of Barcelona. Overall, we enjoyed this hotel.

ice Hotel and even with the language differance they were very helpful.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, hard beds
Our stay was great. The rooms were very clean and big. The only problems we had were the beds were very hard and we thought we had internet included but when we got there it was an added charge. Part of the reason we booked here was for the included internet since this was just a stop over for our cruise.

This hotel was located very close to transportation systems needed in Barcelona

Pros: Free Internet
This is just an average hotel that is located on the outskirts of city center. It is conviently located within a few minutes of walking distance to Barcelona Sants train/subway/bus station/terminal. The staff did not seem to be on the same page, as some knew of certain excursion planning options and others were oblivious to these options.

Hotel was mediocre

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
Hotel was so so. There were dust bugs in the room, stains in the tub, and it was a little musty. I called the manager and showed him the condition of the room. He apologized and upgraded me, but it was still a hassle. Okay, if you are not planning on spending too much time in the hotel. Otherwise, the hotel is in a central location, close to transportation, shops, and the metro. Not a bad value, but be vigilant when checking into your room.
