Recently stayed at the Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia for nine days with my wife and daughter. Minor glitch when we checked in as we were allocated a smoking room despite requesting non smoking via email. However, once we made the reception people aware we were quickly allocated an acceptable alternative. Service levels across the whole hotel were of a high... More

It's not so easy to choose an hotel. Our choice was the good one ! The hotel is very close to the metro, you can find several cheap but good restaurants around. All the people working in the hotel are very friendly and qualified. The pool is very nice, the breakfast is impressive. The restaurant is correct but quite expensive.... More

I booked here for my wife and I to end our holiday week in Spain, we wanted somewhere with a pool that was reasonable and that the city was accessible from. I received an email a few days before offering a club upgrade for a reasonable fee - I thought why not and went for it. It was great -... 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
