“Great location, but noisy!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I'd rate this hotel average-good. The location is great.. The room (a suite) was lovely with a wonderful view of the city. And I say its noisy for two reasons- firstly I could feel the metro rumble underneath you at all hours & secondly I could hear everything my neighbours were up to (noises which most people do not wish to be subjected to!) I stayed here while I was attending a conference, which wasn't close by to the CCCB, but close to everything else- markets, old town, shopping district, great restaurants. Hotel staff were all pleasant and breakfast was typical buffet but of decent quality.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have best views.

Right in the center of La Rambla, with the best service in all of Barcelona. The second night we came back(of course) for drinks, they recognized us and the service was as exquisite as the first night. Great cocktails and wine, with the most pleasant lighting. We had their arranged Christmas lunch on the 25th. The food was wonderful and they were very sweet to substitute the main course with vegetarian. Plus, the wine kept coming for a fixed reasonable price.
The most pleasant staff who makes you feel at most welcome!
We will without a doubt be back for more.

If you are looking for location, you simply can't go wrong with Le Meridien Barcelona as the hotel is in the middle of where you want to be. Staff is very attentive and cleanliness acceptable, everything in the room was in working order. For American travelers that perhaps are a bit too picky, the room is a bit small for what we are accustomed to. However, the room meets the basic needs of a good 4 star hotel. Question to management, why upon arrival there were apples on the hallway where you place the newspapers, and then you never replenished the basket? consistency is an important part of hospitality...

We ate breakfast twice at the hotel and dinner once and again, the overall dining experience meets the basic needs. I expected a bit more selection and variety for breakfast but quality of the food was good. The breakfast experience was ruined by the waiter presenting the check before I even sat down to eat the food. Dinner quality was good, however we came down to eat perhaps too early and we were greeted by the hostess with a "can I help you?" which almost made me turn around and go eat else where...

Kudos to Vanessa from the front desk for an outstanding and very informative check in and to Marcus, the cook from the restaurant that made a great omelette and with his hospitality made up the discreet F&B experience we had.

Room Tip: If you want to be able to open the balcony, be sure to ask the front desk staff in advance. Apparen...

We stayed in one of the large top floor suites on a business weekender, the rooms and the views over the City were sublime at night, the design was really well done and the public spaces and dining were well considered and a pleasure to experience, if you've got the money and want to do it first class in Barca, this place is top notch.

Le Meridien Barcelona is a very nice, comfortable hotel in the center of the all the action. All the shops, the Opera House, merchants, shows, museums everything is within walking distance from this hotel. My room overlooked the La Rambla which is a kind of avenue with lots of street merchants. A huge farmer's market is just a short walk away as well. The hotel itself is very comfortable. The rooms are pretty good size for European hotels. The bathroom had a huge tub and really hot water. Not much to watch on TV so if you're stuck at the hotel bring a good book. They pretty much only get news and a documentary channel. The hotel has a juice and coffee bar that was a nice stop on the way out in the mornings. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is Wifi. You have to pay for premium speeds but the free wifi is adequate for checking and sending email. Great place ton stay for sure!

Room Tip: I had a room on the La Rambla (avenue) and even with the balcony door open the noise level (traffic...

Ok so here is why I rated this a 3 star...

First star for location. Superb! Central! Walk to pretty much anything! Convenient!

Second star for their concierge Bruno! Nothing was too much trouble. Everything explained with patience and confirmed with efficiency. Great restaurant recommendations.

Third star for their lobby staff... Very pleasant and helpful!

So why only 3 stars... Because the rooms are poor and the housekeeping even more poor! Simply put the rooms are not of the quality I have experienced at other meridien properties. Poor craftsmanship and design too. Poor quality furniture and fittings. Poor fixtures in bathroom - everything in the room shouted I am cheap!

And then the housekeeping... Recycled towels from floor every day and everyday we had to request changes. We'd come back to pretty much only the bed made up and a few things put away or rubbish thrown... Carpets were still dirty. Hair all over the bathroom and sink. Wet towels on rail. So sad for what claims to be a 5star property.

We chose this place as were with kids and wanted something central. Next time I will go with what was my first choice.... Arts hotel and pay up for taxis!

We stayed here 2 nights at the end of November. It was the perfect location ! great restaurant in hotel and many excellent restaurants just across the street as well !
Walk out of the hotel and walk a couple hundred feet and u are on La Ramblas.
Staff were friendly and very helpful in buying tickets for live flamenco. The rooms were very nice and quiet and the beds were extremely comfortable !!
On my previous trip to Barcelona I stayed in El Born which was great too, but this location was so close to everything...it was the perfect hotel for a short visit !
