I certainly liked Catalonia Born’s great location (near the Arc de Triomf) in one of Barcelona’s historical districts. Add to this the friendliness of the staff and one would expect an above-average experience. However, the rooms (or perhaps just mine) were very small, had no...More

Catalonia Princesa is located in a magnificent building typical of the architecture of Barcelona's gothic quarter. Near the Arco de Triunfo and the Ciudadela Park, it is situated in the historic and ...More commercial centre of Barcelona, only a few minutes away from Plaza Catalunya. Our clients have a range of facilities at their disposal, including a bar/cafeteria, a traditional Mediterranean restaurant and a conference room. There is a public car park next to the hotel. Less

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
