“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

A nice hotel, located within walking distance of most of the tourist areas. Far enough from Las Ramblas for a peaceful night's sleep! Cool and modern design, very clean and comfortable, but the hotel bar was quite expensive. However, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops nearby.

The staff were polite and friendly and spoke good English.

All in all, a good choice for a stay in Barcelona.

This hotel is perfect! If you want to visit Barcelona, the Alexandra Barcelona Hotel is a very good choice! The location of the hotel (passeig de gracia, rambla catalunya) is ideal since it is in the centre of the city, close to everything! You can go by foot to visit all the interesting spots of Barcelona, which is very important, in my opinion. The rooms are very qualitative, and the service too! I went there this week, and we had a really good time! So If you want to stay in a nice hotel where you can rest after a long day of visit, this hotel is a good choice!

Room Tip: The rooms in the top floors of the hotel have a nice view.

I went there for a weekend with my girlfriend and I have to admit that the hotel really improves the feeling I have about Barca. Reception desk was friendly and professional. The service provided by the employees is wordless and the place is wonderful. If I have to come back in Barca in the future, I'll definitely go to this hotel! Moreover, the location is rambla de cataluna, exactly in the heart of Barcelona...

The Alexandra Barcelona hotel was nice, we stayed there for three days. The staff was very polite and helpful with things to see and do within walking distance of the hotel. Although it was cool outside the rooms were rather stuffy, I asked the desk clerk about it and was informed they had turned off the air conditioning system and turned on the heating system. The only way to cool down the room was to open the window if possible. The first room we had was supposed to be for the handicapped,(we did not need nor request this room) however it would not meet ADA standards for the USA. The room was not designed for wheelchair access, the only area that was handicap friendly was the bathroom. The bed was not the best, you could feel the springs through the covering. In our first room they had put two twin beds together and used twin sheets and blankets. The shower head was defective and sprayed water in all directions, some in the correct direction for a person to shower. Our second room was queen size bed and suffered the same problem as the twin beds. The mattress springs were close to the surface, and not that comfortable, maybe this is the way Europeans like their beds. There were about six english speaking television stations, three were 24 hour news channels the others were part-time and older shows.
The restaurant in the hotel was was very good the portions were good and great presentations. The breakfast was very good, they offered a wide variety of food.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the street for a better view. Traffic noise is not too distracting. The roo...

I stayed here for a few nights in November, although it was cool outside the room was stiflingly hot. The air conditioning is completely ineffective and had no effect on the room temperature and was very noisy. The only way to cool the room down was to open the window, however I had a room that opened on to Calle Mallora which is a very noisy traffic street pretty much all night long, so that wasn't an option either.

The walls offer no soundproofing at all, you can hear everything that goes on in neighbouring rooms and in the corridoor outside, so I kept getting woken up.

The room is nice as is the bathroom, the breakfast isn't bad. The reception staff are very friendly although some of the staff in the breakfast room are less so. However all of this was overshadowed by how difficult it was to sleep in the room.

I did also stay in this hotel last year in September and had a good experience, so it could be pot luck with what room you get, but I wont be staying here again.

Room Tip: Get a room with an internal facing window.

My wife and I were 4 nights at this wonderful hotel.
The location was great, the room was nice and breakfast was ok.
The service was especially amazing - they let us checkout at 8pm instead of 12am, free of charge, for our late flight back.
I would defently recommend about this hotel to whomever will visit Barcelona.
