I suppose this was a luxury hotel when princess Sofia as young. Currently it fits better a geriatric institute though fortunate for Sofia the Spanish taxpayer takes better care of her. It fills out your day alright -There are lines in the reception, there is a 100 people line for breakfast, the hotel needs some uplifting and Elon Musk Spacex... More

I stayed here recently for a very short trip to see a football match at the Camp Nou. The situation of the hotel couldn't be better as it's just a few minutes walk to the football ground. To travel into the city centre is really no problem too - it's quick and easy using the tram and/or metro. I really... More

The hotel is a good business hotel and I was there for a conference. Staff are friendly and helpful. I had most meals in the hotel and they were very good. While I had a good stay in the hotel, it definitely needs a bit of an update.

I have been at the P.Sofia several times and usually I stay a couple of nights during the week. I really enjoy staying at the Club since it offers the use of the Business Center like a real and super personal office where I can work between a meeting and another or like perfect place to invite a business partner...

Recent reviews have already commented on the fact that Princesa Sofia isn't a 5-star hotel in reality ... but there is much to compliment. It is located a couple of minutes' walk from the Nou Camp, so a perfect location for a Barcelona football match. Indeed, the team were staying the hotel whilst we were there, and reception let us...

My boyfriend and I visited this hotel in August 2013. It was really lovely and in a nice area of barcelona from what we experienced. The hotel was very nice and quite extravagant but a little dated interior wise. We had a lovely room. We had a fruit basket delivered the one morning which was a nice gift. There is... More

Visited for a conference facilitated at the hotel. Standard double room was ok-ish, everything worked and it was clean, although dated. I expect something more from a 5 star hotel though. Staff was friendly and helpful. All in all a bit too "Holiday Inn". Ok for business, would not recommend it for a leisure trip.

Stayed here with 2 older children in 2 interconnecting rooms (slightly bland, business hotel standard). Enjoyed using the swimming pool. Staff friendly. Location residential with good shops around and a short taxi ride to town or sites - or a quick walk to Camp Nou. Would recommend it.

The first 5* hotel in the city. This emblematic, luxury retreat is part of the genuine history of Barcelona.
