"...We had a great stay at the St. Katharina. Nice stories of the boat, told by Cas, out host. We had lovely tapas on out first evening!
The boat is a museum if you really want to know...if you don't: you still have a pleasant stay.
Nice room and bathroom, nice breakfast! A great place to stay if you want to visit Barcelona. We will be back!..."

"...What an incredible place to stay! Different from being in a hotel, the area is quiet, we had the light tapas meal on arrival which was delicious, drinks on board are cheap, and the hosts are great! Highly recommend! ..."

"...2 nachtjes bij Cas geslapen op z'n prachtig verbouwde sleepboot. Mooie hutten met badkamer en ook airco. Heerlijk ontbijt genuttigd op het zonnedek van de boot.
De haven ligt aan de rand van het centrum maar met de hop-on-hop-off bus prima te bereiken. De halte is op 10 minuten lopen. Ook de taxi's zijn daar te vinden.
Als je van rust houdt in een grote stad en op een bijzondere plaats wilt slapen, dan is dit het juiste adres! Bedankt Cas!
Erwin, Dick en Karola ..."
