“Stylish hotel in vibrant Barcelona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

A charming boutique hotel, the Murmuri seems designed for business or leisure travellers alike. Whilst the room was small, its fixtures and fittings are of a high standard with modern furnishings. We ate in the hotel which served good food although the bar lacked atmosphere. It's located in a bustling area with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The metro station is at the top of the road but a taxi might be required to the beach for those who don't want the walk. All in all in great stay in my newly favourite city!

Note: We were told we could use the swimming pool of the Hotel Majestic nearby but it was under rennovation and wasn't sorth the trip.

Dear Ellbee84,

First of all we would like to thank you for sharing your opinion on TripAdvisor.

Hotel Murmuri was designed by Kelly Hoppen in a sophisticated style, between traditional and modern. In addition, we are glad to hear you enjoyed our restaurant as well. We recently re launched elPassatge del Murmuri, a mediterranean cuisine restaurant in the heart of Barcelona.
Being located on the Rambla Catalunya, Barcelona´s major attractions are indeed within a stone´s throw.

Regarding the swimming pool in our sister property Hotel Majestic & Spa; of course we should have informed you directly about the new opening hours due to the renovations. We are sorry for the trouble this may have caused you.

If you return to your newly favorite city; we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back!

Warmly,

General Manager

Small hotel perfectly situated. nearest metro is a stones throw from the door.( Diagonal ) on ramblas catalunya. Hotel Omm with the Roca restaurant about 300m away. Bocachito around the corner. Metro line is direct for Nou Camp and the sagrada familia. 15 minute walk to the old ramblas. rooms are smal but nicely done. Minibar but no free water or tea coffee machine. Wifi is poor . Service is great. Breakfast is good.

Room Tip: If you get an option for view - take it. otherwise its lights on all the time

Our 1st visit to Barca, took the aerobus to Pl Catalunya for E5,75 and then u'd need to jump into a cab to the hotel for roughly E4-5 for the short ride (we made the mistake of walking - 20mins with suitcase!)

Not So Positive:
- no coffee & tea facilities.
- no complimentary water (sorry we're used to this coming fr Asia), n hard to find a convenience store nearby to buy supplies - closest we found was near Zara, corner deli/bottle shop on same st.
- reception & staff not that warm & friendly to us personally, average hospitality level but good standards of recommendations for dining options.
- slight severage smell in our bathroom which ruined the experience. I guess avoid Rm 503.

Our Suggestions:
- don't forget to request for room slippers, very soft and complimentary.
- we also had to request for extra pillows as they were way too soft and we needed more support.
- metro is v close but cost E2 per person for only 2 stops to Sagrada (mite b worthwhile taking a cab if raining for around E5 or less).
- even with the rain, there were still ppl lining up for Sagrada, highly recommend buying ur tiks online beforehand, we walked straight in.

Strong Positives:
- the restaurant in MurMuri is amazing, we ate there 3 times, we loved the Sea Knives /Burcata /Fish Rice / Poussin...so good!
- the location and area was so so lovely, v convenient for shopping and sightseeing, and pleasant just to soak in the city & we also stayed in La Ramblas to compare, and can confidently say, this area wins hands down (away from the hectic hoards of tacky tourists and tourist trap restaurants too).

Dear chezong,

On behalf of the whole staff at Murmuri I would like to thank you for your review on TripAdvisor.

Our hotel has indeed an ideal location to go sightseeing in Barcelona. Moreover the main shopping avenue Passeig de Gracia and a lot of Barcelona´s cuisine is within walking distance. Nevertheless, we are sorry to hear there was an inconvenient with the smell in the bathroom during your stay. Please kindly let us know the situation right away during your stay, so we can directly solve it for you.

As far as tea kettle goes, while we agree it is a service we could add in all the guest rooms, let me inform you that the junior suite, the suite and the residences do include this facility in the room. In addition we also have coffee & tea facilities available for our guests on request.
Having thus said, we hope we can welcome you back soon the next time you are in town!

Kind Regards,

General Manager

First time on Barcelona - lovely city, maybe a bit chilly this time of year. The hotel was very nice - close to a metro stop and in a lovely surrounding area. The room was small but sufficient, clean and comfortable. No view from the room worth talking about. Staff were very nice. Overall a good base to explore the city.

Hello,

We stayed here for a shopping weekend and my fiance's birthday. The location was great for shopping and for walking to the old town (about 6 blocks stroll). so many nice bars, cafes and good places to eat near by.
The staff were fantastic in their recomendations and guides. It was my Fiance's Birthday so they helped with picking up a special cake having it delivered to the club and making the whole suprise.
I highly recomend this hotel for a weekend city break.

We enjoyed our week stay at Murmuri. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are awesome with an amazing bathroom; I loved the shower. Everything was clean and housekeeping was great at keeping our room prefect. I enjoyed the bar area and restaurant down stairs, it makes for a great night out without having to leave your hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel for any age.

Room Tip: Our room was against the alley and it was a little noisey on Thursday night.
