In the title compound, C10H14NO4+·Cl−, the benzene ring makes a dihedral angle of 64.68 (4)° with the methyl­amino­propano­ate unit, which is bonded to the catechol ring via a methyl­ene C atom. A strong intra­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bond occurs. In the crystal, O—H⋯O, N—H⋯Cl and O—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds and weak C—H⋯O inter­actions link the mol­ecules into a three-dimensional network.
