Was impressed by photos and booked a room. The first thing which surprised me was fingerprinting which was further used as a key to the room (works fine). I'm a bit paranoid by fingerprinting idea, however, I have to acknowledge that it is very convenient. Design is very interesting. Rooms are spacious. Inner yard is very nice. One strange thing...

It's always easy to nit-pick, so I'll start that way. I didn't like the pillows and disjunct comforter in a two-person bed. So if you're staying as a couple at the Alma, ask for firmer pillows and a single comforter. ...That said, you should absolutely stay at the Alma because it's a fabulous hotel. Huck and I travelled to Barcelona... More

We travelled to Barcelona to celebrate my partners 40th birthday. Not having been before we weren't sure which area to stay in but Alma Hotel was perfect. Despite the wet weather we walked to many of the key attractions always making use of the complimentary umbrellas. The room was lovely, maybe lacking a bit of lighting but certainly very comfortable... More

The Alma Experience from start to finish was of highest possible professionalism, courtesy and willingness to help from everyone at the hotel. We booked two executive suites for the week end and we could have not have not asked for anything better. This hotel provided everything we expected and impressed us with the friendliness we received throughout our stay. We... More

I am a hotel snob. There, I've said it. That being said, you should know that I do a ton of research before booking a hotel. I feel as if a hotel should be as nice, or nicer, than my own home. The Alma Hotel is my first choice hotel in Barcelona. During my visit, I noted other hotels that... More

This hotel is in a great location between two subway stations and walking distance to many Gaudi sites. The junior suite was lovely with a gorgeous roomy bathroom. We can't say enough about how fabulous the staff is, from the front desk to the bar/restaurant they are top shelf. Having a glass of cava on check-in really set the tone.... More

First of all, this is a hotel that anyone should stay at when visiting Barcelona. I will start from the customer service: it Is superb, above the average of a great customer service. When the taxi stops at the door of the hotel, the bellman immediately open the trunk and take out all the luggages and takes you to the... More

Alma Barcelona is a wonderful hotel in a central location within walking distance of many attractions, restaurants, cafes and shopping. Kudos to the front desk staff who were very helpful and friendly. We were warmly welcomed with a drink, local map, and concierge services. Our room was very comfy, modern, spacious, quiet. Would certainly stay there again.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
