Four night stay in February. Great location. We were able to walk to many sights and shopping. Staff was fantastic - a special shout out to Marcos, Elizabeth and Fernando. We did not have breakfast at the hotel as there were so many terrific breakfast places within walking distance. The hotel is very modern, sleek and dark. We could have... More

We recently stayed at the hotel and everything exceeded our expectations. It is in a great location for both exploring the city and for shopping. The rooms were large and comfy but the best part was the staff. Always ready to help and extremely friendly will ensure I will stay there again.

We stayed for 4 days over valentines and the location is excellent - 10 minute walk to the ramblars -if that is your bag - but with Versace et al on the corner and 2 Gaudi buildings within 5 minutes walk. The Sagrada Familia is just 20 mins away. We had a quite room overlooking the courtyard which was ideal.... More

We chose Alma due to the great reviews and to be fair if we could give a half mark I would say it's a 3.5 out of 5. The location was great, very accessible to tourist attractions, shops, bars and public transport. The check in was efficient and very friendly. The room was nice but we felt too design led... More

We stayed at this hotel based on a family referral, thank you Sally! Modern rooms but comfy vs. minimalistic. Fabulous concierge especially Elizabeth, who helped us with everything for 3 days! Trust her for great referrals including restaurants. Perfect walking location.

Very large rooms and bathrooms. First class customer service! The room comes with the mini bar stocked, and the hotel also provided electricity converters. The location is great as well. Nice outside area to have drinks, and enjoy the night.

What a fantastic property! We are well traveled couple, travelers not tourists so boutique properties appeal to us vs a chain type of facilities.This is our second visit to BCN both times staying in this same area. I research like crazy for every trip and rely heavy on TA reviews to sway my final decisions, great choice! Location, smack dab... More

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.
