Came here for a work trip. Nice hotel with great facilities. Good restaurant and more importantly clean rooms. The only negative if you can call that is the decor. It's stuck in the 80's. Would I come again, yes I would. After all staff were very friendly.

My husband and I arrived at the hotel around 9:30 a.m. After a long flight from the U.S. We weren't expecting to be able to check-in until in the afternoon, and were anticipating leaving our luggage with the front desk and buy some time touring the city. To our surprise, the front desk had our room ready and allowed us... More

This is a great hotel to stay in Barcelona at a reasonable price. We booked this hotel after extensive research of more than 30 hotels in Barcelona. We wanted a hotel which was safe and secure, comfortable, in a quiet area and within our budget of around USD 200 per day. We rented 3 rooms for 3 nights for 8... More

Not a new hotel... and looks can be deceiving. BUT... the service -- top notch. I did not meet one person in the hotel that was not willing to help me with something. The concierge Pedro Moron was wonderful. He gave us restaurant suggestions, made the reservations, and took care of us. HE is the concierge that I would want... More

Stayed in this hotel for two nights. Close to the Nou Camp just 20 min from placa catalunya. Perfect breakfast and great service. The players of the fc barcelona squad often visit this hotel we saw messi on our stay and that was great. Will visit again

I recently stayed at the Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia and would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful especially Louis on the desk. I would recommend upgrading your room to club as I certainly felt like royalty. This hotel is slightly out of the way from La Rambles etc but it does not... More

The staff here were, without exception, professional, efficient, kind & generous with their time. In order of appearance to us; Laura (Reception), Oriel (Doorman), Isaac (Lobby), Pedro & Luis (Concierges), Sandra (Breakfast Greeter), Francisco & Sandra (Bar Waiters) Jhersont & Nicolas (Restaurant Waiters) & ALL of their colleagues were wonderful ambassadors for this terrific hotel. None of us have had... More
