No info on checking in, or in room about breakfast times etc. Shower in bath. No rail or slip mat, very dangerous. Staff unable to communicate. No English channels on television.

"A very comfortable stay"

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights this week in this hotel and it was extremely comfortable. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless, freshly made beds every day and full set of fresh towels each day. The staff at reception could not have been more helpful and helped us with all our queries and always friendly and welcoming. To sum up a fab hotel very central to the city and good value for money.

"Clean and friendly hotel"

A small basic hotel that met our needs. Well situated within close proximity to bus and metro network. We would have welcomed tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We were in room 603 and experienced a lot of noise from the lift especially early morning. Staff approachable and friendly.

A great location in the Rambles and very nice and helpful staff, the hotel was very clean, We had a nice room with Balcony in the front of the hotel. Barcelona is a great city and we shall go back again. The TV sadly had no English stations and the WIFI was very erratic.

"Fantastic "

Lovely hotel,staff and vary cosy place to stay in Barcelona

Guest rating:


"Extremely well placed and comfortable hotel."

The hotel rooms we had were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the staff were charming and helpful. Both myself and my friend would stay there again and recommend it to other people. It is ideally placed for the airport bus, visiting the Ramblas and using the City Tour buses. We would suggest it helpful for directions to point out which way to walk when arriving on the airport bus, left or right.

"Great central location, nice basic room, lovely bathroom, good breakfast and nice staff"

Thought the hotel was in a very good location for everything, very central. Easy to get to from airport on aerobus. Can walk to all the main areas and the underground stop very near for more distant locations. Nice clean rooms and bathroom. Comfortable bed. Only slight negative was two single beds together rather than a double bed, as we had requested a double room. Staff pleasant and breakfast very good. Would recommend the hotel as a great base for exploring Barcelona.

"Like most. "

One young man an women at front desk were great. One man could use improvementOverall good

Guest rating:



Although we asked for a double we were given a twin. The main problem was the smell of drains from the bathroom which was almost continuous. The breakfasts were excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable. I would recommend it to others.

"Location very good but some issues with hotel"

Breakfast is expensive and the hot food had almost run out although service is supposed to be until 10am. Paying for the use of the safe is a rip-off and it uses a key, not a combination lock, which could easily be lost. There are no information booklets in the room. The hairdryer has no power so take your own. Plus points are that it is in a good location and the staff were very pleasant.

"Good, clean friendly hotel, would be better with softer beds"

Hotel is close to Ramblas and Metro Stations. Staff very accomodating and hotel is clean with very good bathrooms. We had a room with a small balcony which was nice to sit at in the evening.Only compliant was the beds were much harder than we like.

"Good Hotel "

My family stayed at Hotel Caledonian from 30th June to 3rd July and we enjoyed it. The rooms are clean and tidy and staff are friendly. The only thing that perhaps they could improve is if they have a tea or coffee facility in the rooms which makes a lot of difference, there are no English channels in their TVs which I find it very odd as there are more English speaking guest there that weekend! It would also be handy if they modernised their hair dryer. Apart from these 3 things I would certainly go back and book this hotel again.

"A good place to stay for reliable service"

It`s a good hotel. I`d recommend just going out elsewhere for breakfast, but as a person who just spent two nights, I thought that the hotel was decent- nothing incredible, but good value that wasn`t too far from the hot spots.

Guest rating:



Ideal for a stay in central Barcelona. Handy for all attractions but also surprisingly quiet. Very clean. Helpful and friendly staff.
