Making a list for 2015 with the best hotels for summer is getting complicated this year. The hotel industry in Spain rolled up its sleeves so choosing a hotel without spending hours, making comparisons, searching…is impossible. Prices remain stable and services have improved since last summer, which makes a difficult decision to take. However, here we are trying to take the risk, and today our destination is Barcelona, with some of the best quality hotels in the country, with prices equally high usually (higher than Madrid)
On 2015, your summer hotel is the Catalonia Atenas, a 4 star hotel that really deserves it, located close to the Sagrada Familia with affordable prices and pet friendly (finally! Our loved ones are getting trendy). We recommend this hotel for weekend getaways, cultural trips, shopping trips, or spending time with friends, a especially for business travellers, thanks to its location as well as its customised service, for this kind of guests that need special features for their job.
The hotel also have a big swimming pool and a solarium in the terrace with the most spectacular view to Barcelona and the Agbar Tower. It’s a privileged place to spend a couple of days and sunbathe with the Mediterranean warm and enjoy all these amenities without leaving the urban area, a city full of events always moving like the Ciudad Condal.
The hotel design and decoration are modern, fresh and spacious, with a Scandinavian style and with Mediterranean colours, textures and assets. The lobby and common spaces are perfectly comfortable to have a drink or a meeting.
In regards to the gastronomic service, the hotel has a complete buffet breakfast with show cooking, so every guest have their meal the way they want and freshly made. They also have a dietetic menu, and are especially careful with allergic guests (lactose intolerance, gluten, nuts…) given the case we recommend you to go to the hotel website in Barcelona.
The Catalonia Atenas is a hotel next to La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, next to the Clot metro station and a few blocks from the Santa Creu y Sant Pau Hospital, the perfect location if you’re looking for a health tourism accommodation and for those who need to spend time in Barcelona due some medical treatment or support your loved ones if they’re sick.
