Plaça Catalunya is the busy hub of Barcelona and you are surrounded by sights of interest, great cafes and restaurants and within easy walking distance of some great shopping. However if you don't like noise or crowds then this is not the hotel for you.

If you don't speak Spanish and you are unfamiliar with Barcelona booking a private airport transfer is a good option to consider.

Editor's Note: There are two hotels in Barcelona with very similar names. These are the Catalunya Plaza hotel (this review) which is in Plaça Catalunya and then there is the Catalonia Plaza hotel which is in Plaça Espanya. Make sure you're booking the right hotel!
