The hotel itself is not located in an area where you'd want to stay as a tourist, rather for business (it's on Diagonal, a bit remote from the centre). It is quite old-fashioned and the rooms are very unoriginal, although obviously clean and comfortable. There is no view to talk about and I know it's a little detail but bizarrely... More

Everything from the greeting at the front door until we left was just lovely. The rooms were very comfortable and extremely clean. No noise at night. The spa and swimming pool area were lovely and spacious, never got the time for a spa treatment unfortunately. The breakfast was a buffet style and the selection on offer was fantastic, we always...

This is a spectacular Barcelona hotel. The amenities are fantastic, from a full service pool to a real concierge....what a great experience. The rooms are spacious but in need of repair the area is in the central university wait close enough to shopping and good restaurants. 12 euro will get you to the beach and it's well worth it I...

Spend a long week-end here in May. Hall and common areas are nice and check-in was pretty smooth. Room was a bit disappointing although bathroom was very nice. Gym also OK, although pool and spa area a bit outdated. Opening hours for gym were fine. Had breakfast buffet included in room rate - was nice minus the coffee - service... More

My daughter and I spent a week and Barcelona and stayed at the Princess Sofia. We stayed on the Club floor which I would recommend. The concierge on the Club Floor was a great help in learning how to get around, recommending restaurants and booking tickets. We were close to public transportation and easily got into the center of Barcelona.... More

Ended a cruise in Barcelona and extended our stay for a couple of nights. Booked through a agent as reasonable location and price. The hotel is away from the tourist area and wondered if we made a mistake. The hotel is wonderful, 5 star. It turned out that it was a 10 minute walk to the Metro line that ran... More

We booked for 3 nights and the hotel was lovely, close to public transport and Barcelona's football stadium. There were restaurants and shops within a 10 minute walk. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful but checking in and out took a while.
