Ideal for a city break stay

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel with a friend (previously in 2011) and it has once again been brilliant. If you're coming in from El Prat the Aerobus stops literally two minutes away and the location of the hotel in general is ideal. The staff are friendly & pleasant, it's good value for money and the room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The only thing that could improve the room for me was perhaps the provision of a kettle and some tea bags/coffee sachets but in reality this isn't a necessity. I'd definitely recommend it - stay here!

Horrible!

This hotel was rated three stars but not even close even by European standards. The rooms were tiny and extremely basic. They are listed as having satellite television but only local Spanish channels are available - nothing international. The decor is extremely dated and the mattresses are extremely thin and uncomfortable. In addition the staff were extremely unfriendly and bordered on rude and unhelpful.

Fantastic for the avid traveller

Caledonian hotel was fantastic. It had everything I needed. The room was clean and made everyday. Fresh towels were never short. The location was perfect. The bus stops are extremely close and the metro was within walking distance; not to mention all the main attractions were all within walking distance. Walking to and from La Rambla was not an issue at all. There are tons of restaurants and mini 24hr grocery store near by. I will definitely stay here again

Short walk distances to metro and bus stops. Get the Barcelona 5 day card if planning on staying for a week you save tons if planning or taking public transportation...it's an advantage!

yes a great city centre hotel.

arrived early .12.40 pm . given room for luggage to be left . male receptionist was a bit curt . rest of stay this member and staff were brilliant and polite . only downside was the cost of a room safe 3.6 euros a day . did not eat or drink in hotel so cannot coment of those . the room had a instant fresh smell when you entered your room . this is a must use hotel for those that wish to be in centre . will be back .

Nice room in a great location!

I stayed 6 nights in a small single room. The room is very small (just big enough for a single bed and a desk), but very clean and very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great. Close to shops, restaurants, the metro, buses, taxis are readily available. Many things are within walking distance. There is a Starbucks just one block away. I would definitely stay here again.

Great experience!

Great small cute hotel in an excellent location. Of course, the single rooms are tiny and the beds are smaller than twin size mattresses in US, but these room&bed dimensions are quite common in most big cities in Europe, so no problem.

Good Location, Clean, Good Value

This is a good place to stay in Barcelona. It is conveniently located to the Metro. The desk clerks were very polite and spoke excellent English. The room was clean but small, with only a twin sized bed. There was a porch with a great view.
