This is centrally located, making it a great base for walking or taking the metro. Our check-in was done by someone who seemed rather distracted. I couldn't help but overhear rhe check-in next to us - the receptionist was warm, welcoming, funny and informative. In contrast, we were just registered for the fingerprint key system and handed a map. We... More

On Carrer Majorca, (about1/2 mile 1K from Las Ramblas) with a great sized garden for dinning or just a drink, unfortunately it's where you'll also find all the smoking monkeys too :-( very big rooms for Barcelona...The rooms are all keyless entry & your fingerprint is used which worked every time for me over an 8 day stay, a very...

I first stayed at this hotel a few years ago and since then, I have stopped searching for other hotels. This is a design hotel from every angle. Rooms are excellent (book the executive suite) and the restaurant is fabulous (very nice breakfast as well, my egg white omelet was always perfect). Location can not be beat, 30 seconds from... More

We recently had the good fortune to visit Barcelona and stayed at the Alma Hotel. From the word go the staff here couldn't do enough for you. The reception we received was amazing, we were seated and asked if they could get a drink for us (which was lovely as it was a very warm day), our cases were already... More

This was my second trip to Barcelona. The first time we stayed at the famous Hotel Arts near the Olympic Village at the end of Barceloneta. I much more preferred Alma than Hotel Arts. Alma is in an ideal location right off Paseig de Gracia to visit all of the major Barcelona sights. The hotel itself has very comfortable rooms,... More

I always try to be 100% honest on any review and admit to finding it hard being decisive on the comments to submit. Negatives first. The reception area is dark and dismal, not welcoming in any way. This should be looked at. The bedroom card (Do not disturb) has just one side to use and once you hang on your... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights last week as a bit of birthday treat and overall it can only be described as a wonderful experience. As soon as we arrived our luggage was whisked away to our room and as we were booking in we had chilled drinks offered, our receptionist was a font of knowledge who... More

We stayed three nights in July 2014 to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The staff were amazing, friendly and so helpful. They recommended and booked fantastic restaurants for us and even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine for our special occasion. All the receptionist staff and concierge were really kind and remember us each day - you felt you... More

At over $500 a night, the suite was great... but we could not get basic service each day. For some unknown reason, they would remove 1 day old bars of soap, so even when we asked for an extra, we were back down to one the next day, and every day. 2 sinks and a shower and a bath require... More

My husband and I stayed there for 4 nights weeks ago. it was a blast! We were first welcomed by the cheerful faces of the staff and the welcome drinks!
