The hotel is located in a quiet, safe area. Close to the Camp Nou and some great shopping. There is also a metro station close by. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and there are plenty of staff members to help everyone no matter how busy. The rooms are and breakfast are ok but... More

I loved the hotel, it had a good feel to it and everything you would expect from a 5-star hotel. Nothing really unique, except perhaps for the great view if you get a high-rise room. But everything in its place and all details confirming that you are in a first-class hotel. And the price was outstanding...in the particular situation I... More

Although it has that old look of a hotel built in mid late XX century, it is very comfortable and convenient. Furthermore, it is one of the most affordable high rank hotels in Barcelona. Rooms have great views independently of which side they are facing, it is located near the metro and near FC Barcelona stadium.

It's a nice hotel for a short stay ,courteous staff but they really lack veg options for food ,I ordered a veg sandwich and it had tuna. Another draw back is it's quite far fm the old town and other site seeing areas. In my next visit would prefer staying in the town unless I am their for a conference... More

Had a lovely couple of days here but despite the 5 star rating were very surprised at how 'old' the decor and furnishings were. Beds however were very comfy but the showers were so hot we could not get in them! The beer garden was serving good value German food for Oktoberfest but don't know if this is a regular... More

Great location - just a stroll to the main streets in Barcelona and the key shops. Rooms are functional, larger than average for town centre hotels but a little dated in the decor. Service good. Fab gym and pool

Princesa Sofia was born several decades ago and represented at that time fresh air to a hotel community in Barcelona which was certainly far away from what it is now. But as time passed, that innovative concept was not kept updated and the hotel turned into a decadent sight of past glories. This week I was needing a hotel for... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while at a Business event in the hotel. The facilities for that were very good. As a hotel its in a very good location. Just down the road from the Nou Camp football ground. The staff are helpful and friendly. Particularly the concierge for local places to eat. Would have liked the ability to make... More
