Great location and value for your moneyPros: Great location - right across the street from the Gothic Quarter, but not right in it, so very easy to get to. Nice, helpful staff. Clean rooms. On a main street, but rooms were still very quiet. I'd recommend staying here!
Upscale modern clean good conditionPros: This property is in a great location and is very well maintained, modern, clean.,This property is in a great location and is very well maintainCons: I got the feeling that because we booked thru a third party travel site we were given the worst room. Our room faced inward very little light, no view of anything. We were there 5 nights and asked to be moved but they would not give us an outside room.
Hotel CiutadellaPros: The Hotel Ciutadella is a very quaint boutique hotel. It is only 4 stories, with a small number of rooms. The rooms are good sized, and decorated nicely. Several other reviews mention a foul odor emitting from the bathroom drains. I could detect this odor too, but at least it wasn't overpowering, at least not in my room. I was fortunate to request and receive an upper floor room (4th), so I would just leave the exterior bathroom door open, and close the interior bathroom door; this seemed to solve the odor problem. FYI, there are 2 small balconies in each room (one bathroom and one main room), both equipped with French double doors. Everything in the tourist area of Barcelona is within a 1-20 minute walk. The metro is located just a couple minutes away. The staff was outstanding, very courteous and helpful. I would definitely return to this hotel, should I ever return to Barcelona.
Cons: Drain odor.
