The Alma Barcelona may be one of Barcelona's best kept secrets! Even if the City's taxi drivers have often never heard of it (make sure you have the address with you to help the drivers locate it), you will know you have found heaven when your taxi pulls up to it's unassuming facade. Just two doors off Passeig de Gracia on Mallorca, you are steps away from lux shopping paradise, amazing restaurants and wonderful tapas spots and wine bars. Housed in an entirely remodeled Mallorca manse, this modern design gem delights at every turn. From the impressive entry, where the wonderful front desk staff offer you a beverage while you check in ("Cava?" "Why yes, please!"), to the absolutely silent, simple yet have all you could ask for rooms, the Alma pleases at every turn. The rooms are spacious, without being overwhelming and are absolute havens of quiet. Our sixth floor room at the back of the hotel gave a delightful view of the Pandrera; lit up at night, it was a Barcelona landmark framed by our window! And the staff? I could go on and on for days at how wonderful the staff were! Every request we had was honored promptly and perfectly and the staff genuinely seemed interested in our comfort and enjoyment. From helping with restaurant reservations to calling for taxis, they were spot on. I actually looked forward to coming back to the hotel or down to the lobby, just to chat with the staff! You will be extremely hard pressed to find a better hotel in Barcelona.
