Clean and great location

Really enjoyed this hotel. It is 2 minutes from the nearest metro station (Universitat) and right in the heart of the city centre, making it a 5 minute walk to get to Las Ramblas. Since the metro in Barcelona is very well connected, you can pretty much get anywhere. The hotel itself was very clean and modern, with a small balcony, and also had a mini bar fridge - handy to store our own water and drinks on a hot day. Staff were very friendly as well. Only down sides are that there was nothing to do in the actual hotel, besides breakfast. Also, the cleaners sometimes would ignore the "do not disturb sign" and knock the door anyway to see if our room wanted cleaned. Overall, though the location and hotel were excellent.

Buy a 10 day journey metro ticket. Only around 10 Euros for this which is great value for money and you can even share the ticket by passing it to a friend at the barriers. Watch for pickpockets on the metro - always hold your bag at the front or watch pockets.

great value hotel.

We chose this hotel as it was good value for money, not too far from all the main sights, metro stop nearby and 10 mins walk to the Ramblas. It certainly exceeded our expectations, we will definitely stay there again when we next visit Barcelona, for the price we paid it was perfect.

Excellent Location and Nice Rooms, Knowledgeable Staff

check in was simple, quick and friendly. The clerk gave lots of information about things to see and do in the vicinity. The room appeared to have been totally re-done recently. Very clean and well appointed. Small balcony overlooked the busy street below. They had double sliding glass doors accessing the balcony and when both were closed there was absolutely no street noise. We liked this hotel to the point that when we completed our loop tour of three countries, we opted to stay here on our return as well. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but rather we ate at the little cafes around the corner. Easy transportation to/from airport via bus that stops just a couple of blocks from the hotel.

For 5.90 Euro you can ride the shuttle bus from the airport into the City center. Get off at the second stop which is Placa Universitat, then back track about two blocks to get to the hotel. Much cheaper than a taxi for sure.

Good hub to explore from

Great location near the city centre, friendly staff, basic room but clean and functional, we had a balcony which was nice, comfortable bed, nice shower over bath. Would have liked coffee making facilities, but maybe no hotels in spain have these. Great value for money.

The Caledonian hotel was wonderful. The location was central, one or two blocks from Las Ramblas, and the staff was extremely helpful. They gave great recommendations for dinner and other fun activities around Barcelona.

If you're looking for a great way to see the city, viavespa.es is perfect. Getting round like a local makes it so much more fun, and you can see more attractions in less time if you only have a few days in Barcelona.

Second Time

Stayed in this hotel two weeks after a cruise and had the same very good experience as the first time. Different room on but just as clean and comfortable as the other one. Very recommended.

quiet and comfortable

Well positioned for easy access to the centre and Montjuic. Very clean and comfortable with good aircon, although we booked a nonsmoking room and were allocated a smoking room. Comfortable bed and good shower. VERY quiet room facing back and no noise from adjoining rooms. Maids start at 0830 so put do not disturb sign out if you're not ready to leave before that. Very close to universitat airport bus stop.

Big rooms, considering...

When in Rome, judge like the Romans. Okay so the balcony led to some back alley apartments. But hey, this is downtown Barcelona and this is an action packed city. The rooms where large compared to European standards and the view was what you would expect in a world class city at at 3+ hotel. Don't expect to check in early. Apparently the check-in time is a serious matter and it isn't waived easily. Comenearly, sleep in the minature lobby for your over-sized room to be ready. Amazingly all the rooms became available simultaneously at 2:00 pm and we were allowed into our room; not a minute to early. The metro is not far from the hotel and the square is just a half a block away. I ordered a single queen bed. There was noon so I was given a room with two full beds that you could combine and make one big bed. But don't get too excited. The beds didn't really connect well and it made it difficult trying to score on my date. Did I mention that the sofa turns into a bed? The hotel is really proud of this addition. I'd go back and so should you....
