Excellent location on Las Ramblas an easy walk to major sites. We spent one night here before a cruise. Upgraded room was ready after arriving on early flight allowing us to take a nap and shower befores getting out to explore. This was much appreciated!!
Also had an excellent dinner in the restaurant and wonderful breakfast the next morning! Luckily ,the bedroom in our suite was not facing the Ramblas. It's quite busy and the scene goes on well into the night! If noise bothers, ask for back room. Staff we meet was courteous and friendly. Brief but lovely stay.

Fantastic hotel right in the middle of everything - literally right on La Rambla which is where a lot of the action is in Barcelona. I used my Starwood points to book this hotel for a vacation with my girlfriend and there were absolutely no regrets. The staff there was great - all the way down to a trainee, named Daniel, who was super attentive. We got upgraded to one of the suites that looked over La Rambla so no complaints there! The rooms are very clean and modern - really feels like you are being pampered. The breakfast at Le Meridien was also amazing. It is buffet style but they have a wide assortment of local cuisine - cheeses, meats, and all you can drink mimosas! I can't speak to the price as, again, I used my Starwood points but I highly recommend this hotel to any Starwood travelers. Great value for the points.

I have had the pleasure of staying here many times and this weekend was upgraded to one of the newly refurbished suites overlooking the Ramblas.

Following my stay i had a meeting with management to exchange views.

Attention to detail leaves much to be desired !

How could the GM sign off on my suite bearing in mind there are so many issues or was the GM not involved.

The suite colours were morbid-totally depressing--a lack of electrical power points in the correct areas-for the person sleeping on the right side of the bed -no switch to put on a light-so the guest has to crawl over their partner or get out of bed and walk about the bed.

In the area of Internet desk no plugin available unless you disconnect the radio.

Water in the shower is being wasted based on the enormous pressure--money money !!

Very expensive electrical lights have been installed in the both bedroom/living area which simply are a waste of money-they are SPOT LIGHTS-as a result you are unable to read a book-newspaper in the living area with the awful lighting system.

Why oh why do some GMs sign off something like this without clearly seeing the issues by day and NIGHT.

Breakfast was standard however dinner was wonderful with a most delightful young German lady being charming and efficient.

Greetings from Le Méridien Barcelona,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us.
I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our Centonze Resturante and that Francesca made your dinner experience most memorable.

But I am also very sorry to read that the design of our newly refurbished suites to which you were upgraded did not meet your expectations. Should you be returning to Barcelona, please do not hesitate to let us know should you wish to see our other room types and their design and we will be pleased to show them to you.

Kind regards,

After all of the hype about noise on La Rambla, we initially paid 50 Euros extra to get what we thought was a sound-proofed room. When we got to the hotel, they told us that in fact the website was wrong and ALL the rooms were soundproofed, so don't pay the extra money for the La Rambla view, as that will be the noisier room. Also be advised that there are dead spots for internet service in some parts of the hotel. Although the web site says you will have to pay for internet, WIFI is in fact FREE if you get service in your room. The hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly and offered to change rooms to get us WIFi, but by that time we did not want to move again. We got breakfast included and were glad we did. The selection was pretty good, although not as grand as Starwood properties in Italy. They never could seem to get the coffee uniformly hot, but kept trying. If you ask for Americano coffee, you will get the equivalent of bad instant coffee, so just get their regular strong coffee and get warm milk. Great fruit selection at breakfast, including pomegranate seeds, berries, kiwis, and fresh figs. Rooms are very nice and modern, some with great soaking tubs, convenience of great and quick tea pot in closet.

Room Tip: Higher floors away from La Rambla are the quietest. Check to make sure there is a tub if you want o...

thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed review of Le Méridien Barcelona and for your positive rating.
I am glad to read that overall you had a good time with us, despite the inconveniences experienced related to WIFI connectivity and the coffe service during breakfast.
Please apologize for this.

In regards to coffee at our Centonze Restaurant, I will share your comments with the involved team so they can look into what could have happened and ensure it does not reoccur.

We just got back from a 3 night stay at the Le Meridien in Barcelona. Everything about it was great. The service throughout our stay was exceptional. The check in process was very easy and pleasant. The doorman, and especially the concierge were at our service, and extremely helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, an the location of the hotel is ideal. We would certainly stay there again.

We stayed here for one night before embarking on Liberty of the Seas. Our United flight from Newark arrived at the Barcelona airport at 9 am. We took our prearranged ride through Costco but if I were to do it again I would taken a taxi. Le Meridien sold an early arrival package for 120 euros. They were very nice and definitely used to cruise passengers. Expensive but it was worth it. We checked in, showered, and went to bed. We didn't even eat the included breakfast buffet. Then we woke at 130p to catch a private 4 hour tour of Barcelona, again very worthwhile. The location is perfect, on Las Ramblas, which is the fantastic pedestrian street with food and shops galore. I did not eat in the hotel. It is also a 15 minute walk to the Gothic Quarter and cathedral. It was about a 25 minute walk to the University metro stop which you can take to La Sagrada familia. The hotel is a standard four to five star luxury hotel. If I come back to Barcelona I will stay here.

I was lucky enough to stay at L'Meridien many years ago whilst on a business trip to Barcelona. Since then, I have recomended it to all my family and friends and I always go back there. Great staff and a great location. I love all the new modern designs ( I can still remember all the classic furnishings from yester-year !) I stayed in the Mediterraen suite recently which was spectacular and enjoyed having the new spa facilities just a couple of doors down from me. Very relaxing with amazing views of the city. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: No actual swimming pool but outdoor jacuzzi in the sunshine is a great experience...
