Catalonia Roma Hotel
Catalonia Roma Hotel

Catalonia Roma Hotel Barcelona is situated on a main road that is lined with offices and business hotels. It is a 5 minute walk from Barcelona's main train station - Estació Sants. The area is not particularly popular amongst tourists, and many of the main tourist attractions are not in walking distance of the hotel.

The hotel lobby is surprisingly grand for a 3 star hotel. There are black and brown stripy couches, a marble floor and glass cabinets containing large ornate vases. Classical music is piped into the lobby, and the front desk sits behind the comfortable seating area.
