The hotel seems old, but was clean. Staff were ok. The location was alright. Next to camp nou (Barcelona FC stadium). Internet speed was very good. They provide free breakfast, which was really good. They have a gym, a small pool, sauna, German beer garden, mini bar fridge in the room. Maria Cristina station is near by from there you... More

It is excellent hotel, I spent 31 days because it has good service and price. I would like to stay at the same hotel again when I come back here. The best thing that it is very close to the campnow. It has also fast internet. You can feel that you are really V. I. P.

Spending 2 nights in Barcelona with my wife and 2 kids. Needed a good rate and found the P Sophia to have fantastic pricing. My nervousness as to why the prices are so good was unfounded as the hotel and staff are just superb. The quality of the finished and the size of the bedrooms and bathrooms are fantastic. We... More

Just back from a busy but good holiday at the Princesa Sofia Hotel. We stayed in a Comfort room which was more than adequate for our needs - we were so busy sightseeing each day that we were glad of a comfy bed! The room was very clean and tidied each day. The bathroom was also well supplied with towels... More

Three nights here was enough so we spent the next three at a B&B in the city center. This hotel has nice amenities, but for what you pay there should not be additional fees to use the pool, nor should a couple be given a room with two twin beds pushed together to make a king. Other guests at check-in... More

Whole staff were great and warm, room/bathroom's kept clean and linens kept fresh. The only downside is that it's far from City Centers but the subway station is nearby so it made it easy for us to go around Barcelona and catch our tours. Few shopping areas, supermarket and restaurants nearby as well, more quiet and pleasant to browse around... More

We got a one bedroom suite which has plenty of room and a great bed. The room has a few small damage marks and may be considered somewhat outdated. It was spotless. Carlos at the front desk was very kind and helpful. Our room came with Club Access where we could help ourselves to drinks and snacks. Located close to... More

The staff here are wonderful. So friendly, warm and helpful. Special mention to Pedro the doorman for great advice on places to go and the wonderful man in the bar (sorry, name has slipped my mind) who made fabulous mojitos! The hotel itself is not flashy but it is certainly clean and very comfortable. The location is very convenient with... More

This is a 5 star hotel in facilities with generally really helpful and frindly staff who make an extra effort for you. Even when we had to check out for the airport at 5am they had complimentary coffee in the lobby for us. What it isn't - this is not a luxury hotel. If you want to feel you are... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first 5* hotel in the city, this emblematic luxury retreat forms part of the history of Barcelona and bristles with tales around national and international royalty and important figures from the world of politics, culture and entertainment who have been amongst its guests. Perfectly located on the famous Avinguda Diagonal - in the noble financial district of the city - it is only a 5 minute walk away from Camp Nou football stadium, home of the legendary FC Barcelona, and a mere 12km from the airport. Its 500 timelessly elegant rooms are all exterior-facing and offer - from the 9th floor up - magnificent panoramic views of the Catalan capital. ... more   less
