Property info

They say the cities bathed by the Mediterranean exude warmth and tranquillity down to their every corner. At The Moods Catedral, we’ve aimed to transmit the lightness and simplicity of this landscape into our hostel in the centre of Barcelona, a unique and cosy urban refuge where you will feel at home in part for the conservation of the local architecture, the use of artisanal materials, typical of Spain, and a décor that is both comfortable and relaxed. We’ve taken great care with each detail to make our hotel in Vía Laietana your second home in Ciudad Condal. We achieved this thanks to some warm and understated settings that will connect you to the local essence while allowing you to enjoy the harmony and peace present through all our rooms. With a central location and great tranquillity, The Moods Catedral has two top features the urban wanderer yearns for. The architectonic value of the building we’ve transformed into a modern hostel sits at the centre of Barcelona.
