At Plaza Espanya, Near Montjuic Hill (2)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 10, 2015

part two of my Catalonia Barcelona Plaza Tips with more pictures.

Among the Hotels I stayed during my more than 1 month european wanderlust, the Catalonia Barcelona Plaza get the Highests Marks beside the Radisson Blu in Biarritz France. This Hotel is right smack in the Center of Barcelona and is just steps away from Plaza Espana and the former Bullfighting Ring of Barcelona which is now converted into a Shopping Mall (I love shopping malls you see) and a 10 minute walk takes you to the Base of Montjuic Hill and 15 minutes to the Olympic Stadium.

It is a convention and Business Hotel as it lies just across the famous Fira Del Barcelona Trade Center, which is the trade convention Capital of Europe and there was the Barcelona Car Show when we were there (with free entrance to boot!). Around the Hotel are numerous bars, restaurants, Bars, Tapas Bars, shops, souvenir stores (the best is eating at the top of Las Arena Mall (with sweeping views of Barcelona and again is the former Bullfighter Ring) and there is a Barcelona Subway Metro Stop Entrance just in Front of the Hotel (Plaza Espana Metro Station) that brings you everywhere in Barcelona.

This hotel is a favorite of the Tour Group Companies as well that is why we stayed here for 2 nights. The Hotel has 14 floors and 354 Rooms and Suites.divided into double room or square view room or Premium or Terrace of Suite Rooms. The rooms are small as typical of european standards at 22 Square Meter for the Double or Square View Rooms and 26 Square Meters for Terrace View.

We stayed for two days in a Square View (facing Plaza Espana) Room and cost of a night here with breakfast is 227 Euros a room (for two persons) a night web rate and 250 euros if not via internet.

Other Hotel Amenities Include: Swimming Pool with Terrace Views, Spa and Sauna Facilities, Fitness Center, Business Center, Laundry Service, A Solarium at the top and 3 Restaurants (Filigrana-where the breakfast buffet is held, Umo Japanese Restaurant and Gourmet Shop) and 1 Bar.

Check in is 2:00 pm and check out is 12:00 pm

Unique Quality: The Rooms (Double Rooms and Square View) are small at 22 square meters (typical of european hotels). they have a modern design and the amenities here include:

Air conditioning and heating
Flat screen satellite TV with PPV ana a LED TV
Free Wi-Fi and the rooms and all areas of the Hotel
Full-length mirror
Hair dryer
Marble bathroom
Minibar
Mini Fridge
Room service Nomo group and Telepizza
In Room Safe deposit box
Soundproofed rooms
Telephone
Free Bottled Water and Chocolates (not in our room as maybe it our room was discounted as we were booked as part of a tour group package)

cons: no free bottled water (for tour groups), no ironing board, the separate door to the foyer and the room makes the room more smaller, Not universal Sockets (so bring you universal plug adaptors).

Directions: Plaza España, 6-8, Sants-Montjuïc, 08014 Barcelona, Spain Barcelona, Spain. Nearest Barcelona Metro Station (Subway) is Plaza Espana (just 10 steps away from the entrance of the hotel).

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 17, 2006

We rent a double room for 4 nights at Eur 80/night before tax (7%) excluding breakfast (Euro 13/person for breakfast). Firstly they gave us a poor room with a worn out lamp, a broken cupboard, a loose lock of safe box, a bath with rust stain, and a backstreet view. It's good that they were willing to change the room after we requested. However, when I reached the lobby to change the keys, the staff was talking about us in Spanish with the room maid in phone. She may think I won't understand her spanish that she is saying we are trouble. I stared at her, then she stopped. And then, I asked how we can use the mini safe box and Wi-Fi internet in our room, she said we have to rent the safe box key in Euro 3.95/day, and pay Euro 22/day for the internet connection in room, or pay Euro 2 per 20 minutes for the computers in the lobby! But it stated they have free Wi-Fi internet service on http://www.bookings.org/!! Moreover, we asked for breaking some Euro 100 paper notes into Euro 20 and 10, the staff was not willing to do so, and asked us to change it at the bank next door!

The only thing I appreciated is the location and the wonderful fountain view of our room (after changed our room)!

Directions: It's just next to the metro station "Placa Espanya".

Hotel by the Palace

by written on December 29, 2002

By far the nicest hotel I have stayed in (U.S. and Europe).

Unique Quality: View of the Palace at night when there is a light/water/music show that will knock your socks off. Also, It is large with many amenities like a gym, internet access and rooftop pool.

Directions: Close to the Palace.
