I had a very nice time

"...St. Katharine is a refurbished boat. Considering it is a boat the rooms are spacious and contains all common commodities you can expect at a B&B. Cas was very hospitable and it was nice to come home and have a small chat every evening. Very nice (and unusual) stay which I would highly recommend. ..."

Unique place to stay for conference attendees in Barcelona

"...I was in the city for a three day conference, and picked St Katharine based on its excellent TA reviews and the highly competitive price I was quoted - this really stood out compared to other hotels in port area, which were very expensive (conference season, I guess!).

I was not disappointed - the reviews were very accurate. Cas gave me a warm & friendly welcome, and the boat was comfortable as well as very conveniently located (only 10 minutes' walk from the CCIB). Breakfast was served every morning on deck and eaten while watching the yachts come and go in the marina - very relaxing!

Would wholeheartedly recommend - and would definitely go back if I'm in the area again...."
