We had a terrific experience in every respect - the service was exceptional, the room was lovely and the amenities were quite nice. We stayed on one of the Club floors and... More

The hotel has a nice bar with a outside veranda thing looking over the hotel porch. We used the pool and jacuzzi which was... More

Stayed here on business and found the hotel to be very comfortable with friendly helpful staff. The room was comfortable and larger than other hotel rooms in Barcelona I've used previously. Somewhere to return to next time in Barcelona.

Stayed here July 19, 2014 through July 21, 2014, had wonderful service and the room1026 was very comfortable and clean.

This is a great hotel and a great price for both the quality and location. The rooms are comfortable, the restaurant is good and the breakfast also. No complaints about this hotel at all and it is my hotel of choice when staying in Barcelona

The hotel seems old, but was clean. Staff were ok. The location was alright. Next to camp nou (Barcelona FC stadium). Internet speed was very good. They provide free breakfast, which was really good. They have a gym, a small pool, sauna, German beer garden, mini bar fridge in the room. Maria Cristina station is near by from there you... 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
