We stayed there yesterday for just a night for a barcelona match! The location is good next to the stadium but if you are staying there for a barca vacation is toooo far from the city center! The staff at the check in was really really slow (10mins for a check in) without explaining anything about our stay (ex breakfast... More

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

I stayed here with my husband and 14 year old son due to the hotel's proximity to Nou Camp, although it is worth travelling across the City to stay here. I was lucky enough to secure a Club room which has attached to it the most amazing benefits. We were greeted at the private reception by Alicia, the Club Manager,... More

My partner and I came here between 12th-16th July 2014 and had a lovely stay. From the moment we arrived the staff were polite and very willing to help. Due to our flight being early, we arrived at the hotel at around 11:00 with the intention of leaving our bags and returning to check in later that day, but the... More

I stayed at Princessa Sofia for three nights due to the EDULEARN conference held over there. My mother accompanied me and we both had a great stay. Hotel facilities are great, it is spacious, but at the same time intimate. Delicious food, spa, conference center - all in one place. Location - very good. Metro and tram-way 200-300 meters away....

Hotel is a 5 star in public areas, especially lobby, pool and dining. Rooms are probably a 3 star, but are large and have updated bathrooms. Traveling with my young daughter, we felt safe and quite accommodated by all the hotel staff. The reasonable rate included the fantastic pool, spa, workout room and a full breakfast that was more of... 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
