The Rooms were excellent, the service was super and the Breakfast was so good with plenty of choices. An amazing hotel that is well worth staying in. The concierge Pedro Moron was so helpful, very friendly and was a key person in planning our touristic visits.

Our fitst trip to Barcelona, a beautiful city, but what made it more enjoyable was staring at the Pirincesa Sofia. We had a junior suite at the Club Level (floors 16-18) and it was a wonderful experience. The Club on level 18 has many amentities plus a staff that tend to all your needs anywhere in the city. The breakfast... More

Perfect place to live if visiting Camp Nou. Let all others line up for taxis and buses while you take a 10-15 minutes walk to stadium. Nice standard all over and the service outstanding!! From the arrival in the reception,in the bar,the cleaning ladies and the concierge service always smiling and arranging what you need.And as an absolute top, when... More

My son and I stayed @ Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia for 4 nights. Great location if you're visiting FC Barcelona literally a stones throw from the magnificent NouCamp stadium. Metro into Las Ramblas is a 5 min walk, so still very conveniently located to get into city centre. The hotel is pretty grand and the staff are all very polite... More

This hotel is nice. Be prepared for an hours bus ride to the beach and a little less to the city centre. Staff are amazing! Breakfast is lovely and lots of choice. The whole hotel has a business feel about it and is not at all touristy or really for holidays. If you are here for the city I would... More

Hotel was nicely appointed, the front desk was helpful, room was lovely and the breakfast was amazing. Best of all take advantage of the services at the concierge desk. Pedro Moron is a wealth of knowledge. Don't bother with the red bus take the metro and adhere to Pedro's wonderful, informed advice. You can't go wrong. G and G Toronto

Nice hotel. Lovely staff. Nice facilities. It's a bit out of the way from the centre and not a lot going on. Transport links very good. Only criticism was that other than the German restaurant (which was great for meat eaters but not so much for vegetarians) the restaurants didn't open until after 8. You also have to wear hats...

Great place to stay. Close to the metro and Barcelona Stadium. Great breakfast. It has a little hidden gem called I.Q. Terraza which provides a great atmosphere and drinks. Yoel our server was very charming and attentive and Paco made the best Sangria in all of Barcelona (we tried 8 of them). Will definately stay here again. Don't miss out... More

Staff were very helpful. Hotel had good facilities, including pool and jacuzzi, opening on to large garden etc. Good choice at breakfast. Room could do with decor being freshened up. Not the most central but close to metro station.
