Great stay in a great location
I booked a quick weekend trip for a friend and I and we had an amazing stay at Catalonia Born. It's in a great location just steps from the Arc de Triomf which makes it easy to navigate the city. Cleanliness was great, staff was friendly, bed was very large and very comfy. Room was on the smaller side, but that didn't impact our stay at all, it was good!

Exceptional 10.0
The location of this hotel is super convenient- in the heart of El Born - walking distance to pretty much everywhere. The room was very clean and the bathroom was spacious. The gym is very well equipped and both the gym and the pool are located on the top roof so the gym is very sunny and you get a nice view from the pool of Barcelona. The staff was super friendly, helpful and they surprised me with a bottle of cava on my birthday!! I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a relaxing stay. I will come back and stay with them in a heartbeat!!!

Great Service and Location
My husband and I stayed at Catalonia Born for 3 nights in October 2019. We really enjoyed this hotel and the location. It was a short walk to many bars and restaurants. The daily happy hour with free tapas was an added bonus, especially when travelers aren't used to eating such a late dinner. The weather wasn't ideal to make use of the rooftop and pool but I think that would be a really great spot in warmer months. All staff we encountered at the property were friendly and helpful.

Very Good 8.0
Pros: Great location and close to both the tourist and non-tourist areas. Hotel was very modern. Cons: Room was oddly shaped and had only one electrical outlet other than the one in the bathroom.
