“Excellent Alma!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We were greeted at the Alma by the friendliest door men and front desk staff and a cold glass of Cava, which was much appreciated on a hot Barcelona day. The front desk staff really could not do enough to assist us and went out of their way with regards to a missing piece of luggage. Excellent restaurant recommendations too!
The hotel is stunning, very stylish and modern within a stunning building with an amazing roof terrace bar overlooking Barcelona.
Location is excellent, a 20 min walk to Las Ramblas and La Sagrada Familia.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bit of modern luxury - fantastic! One of the best hotels I've stayed in.

We went on our honeymoon to Barcelona and stayed at the Alma hotel.
It is a very stylish hotel with nice rooms and perfect service. Quiet with a very nice spa / pool section in the basement.

It's located in the middle of Barcelona near to the main street (shopping) and 2 km. away from La Rambla, so you don't have to worry about getting feed up with tourists.

Room Tip: There are two different types of rooms. Check out the website to decide which you prefer.

Everything about this hotel is just wonderful. Staff were very friendly and helpful, facilities are clean and well maintained, and our room was just lovely. It was expensive, but it's worth every penny, especially if you're on special trip with loved one. One of the best hotels we ever stayed in.

The Alma was perfect for us after flying all night (and not sleeping) from the US to Barcelona. We arrived at 10:30 AM, and much to our surprise, our room was ready and we were able to get in and settled, shower, and rest for a few hours! This is quite different from US hotels, who don't allow you to check in until 3 PM or so...

The check in process was excellent, quick and easy. The front desk people were extremely helpful, attentive and friendly. We had a meal in the restaurant, which was also wonderful, out on the patio. Attentive, friendly staff made our meal time enjoyable.

The room is perfect with a king size bed and free mini bar, free wifi, and a robe and slippers for our weary bodies. Our room had a lovely sitting area with a desk and 2 easy chairs. (Executive suite) There is a safe in the room for your valuables. The hotel is located smack in the middle of town, with access to city center stores, restaurants and sites.

This hotel is a find!! We will surely return here when we come to Barcelona again. Thank you, Alma Hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the executive suite!!

What can you say that hasn't been already said? Superior in every way. Rooms are modern and new. Separate toilet area. Dark at night. Great bed. Lots of electrical outlets. Wifi A-okay, fast. More storage space than you probably have at home. Big issue: insufficient lighting over sink for shaving or make-up. Surprising because it seems designers thought of everything. Beautiful property. Nice breakfast area and patio lounge. Outstanding service from employees. Special shout-out to Javier and Sarray who arranged dinners, made suggestions, took care of laundry problem and even took us for a walk to find a train station. Location could not be better--on main boulevard, Passeig de Gracia, and near to everything, either on foot or via metro. We stayed in Room 610, a grand deluxe on top floor with view of La Pedrera roof. Didn't eat breakfast at hotel, many coffee-croissant places within 5 minute walk, so why spend 25E? Excepting Paris, which is in a class of its own, Barcelona is nicest city in Europe. It has everything you'd want: nice people, beaches, great weather, food and architecture. A great walking city. Safe and clean. When we return it will be to the Alma Barcelona.

Room Tip: Upper floor facing courtyard

Nice and quiet hotel with pleasant and service minded staff. An outdoor restaurant in nice Spanish surroundings. The air-conditioning of our room and indoor areas were excellent. A nice place to come back to after sightseeing in Barcelona.

Room Tip: The hotel is facing a quiet street. No traffic during night time.

A fantastic hotel located perfectly in the city. Staff were brilliant both friendly and efficient. Didn't eat at the hotel but had drinks in the garden and on the roof top terrace. The bed rooms are spacious, quiet, clean and well stocked with good quality toiletries and drinks in the complimentary minibar. Excellent experience would definitely return to this hotel again.
