“Excellent sums it up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The hotel is in a street that is hard to beat - it leads straight down to the top of Las Ramblas, but without the hustle down there. It has loads of outside restaurants on the centre walk even in March.
Could not fault the hotel in any way but I thought the the staff were terrific - more helpful and friendly than any hotel I have stayed at (which are many).
I cannot comment on the hotel food, since for me, going out is the only plus of being away on business, and is essential on holiday.

I supposed it depends what you are looking for. If you want a big, crowded, name-brand hotel this is NOT it. If you want a charming, sophisticated, well-located, architectural gem... THIS IS IT! Updated rooms, a nice breakfast, a hip lounge and restaurant... and you're on the coolest walking street in town, Rambla de Catalunya. Just one block from Paseo de Gracia and La Pedrera... yet you are not in a touristy area (like Las Ramblas).

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Rambla de Catalunya are worth the extra euros.

Loved this Hotel. Stayed 3 nights for a birthday weekend away with the Girlfriend. The rooms are lovely and everything that you would expect. We didn't use the spa/swimming pool facilities as it was bl00dy freezing in Barcelona that weekend, but the bedroom/bathroom etc was excellent and cleaned every day as you would expect.

We arrived at around midnight and the concierge pointed us to a lovely little cafe that was open to grab a bite to eat and drink as the hotel restaurant was closed.

The only negative is the lack of free wifi in the rooms. My girlfriend was delighted at this as it meant I couldn't spend hours looking at sports news, but other customers may find it a big inconvenience. It can't cost much to provide this and would cut out the only negative of the hotel.

Room Tip: Road side rooms might be slightly noisier than other rooms, but didn't inconvenience us at all.

The MurMuri was a wonderful experience. The rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable furnishings! The bed was fabulous. The bathroom was beyond my expectations. The shower was extremely large, with great hot water! Wonderful soaps, etc.

The Location at Rambla de Catalunya was perfect. So many restuarants and shops right outside the front door! Perfect! The Diagonal metro stop was at the end of the block! So convenient.

The staff was friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful...the bar was great too!

I would definitely recommend the MurMuri and would go back in a hearbeat! It was a great value!

We stayed at the hotel in Feb and its only now I have time to write to say what a lovely hotel. Good location, friendly staff, clean rooms AND THE BEST PILLOWS I'VE SLEPT ON. They were goose down and so fab, I went out and bought two - not as good as the hotels but nearly. I don't understand the comment shown on-line and would certainly recommend the hotel - it was a quiet haven as all the rooms are soundproofed - again don't understand the comments made. What clinched it for me was the great location and the only reason I didn't give it full marks was that 40% of the taxi drivers in the city centre, when asked, did not know where the hotel was located so sometimes proved difficult to get back to hotel - the hotel should take some responsibility for that by better self-promotion.

The Murmuri has many problems. Terrible untrained staff who have no idea. Concierge who has no idea and no experience of restaurants or places he is recommending. Terrible room service food - just awful. Such a shame. We have stayed a few times before and its gotten worse and worse each time. No refilling mini bar. We left room at 8am and put 'Clean Room' sign on door. Returned 12 hours later and room still uncleaned. This happened every day. Weird. they charge 4 star prices but 2 star service. Very noisy rooms. Bad pillows, no cable tv, no tissues, cheap pillows etc.... You can stay in better places for cheaper- trust me.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

With so many hotels in Barcelona how do you decide? Luckily we selected Murmuri. The location is oh so perfect. Just walk out the front door and you start having fun. Shops, restaurants, museums. Paella at a seaside restaurant is just a short cab ride away and be sure to catch a flamenco show. The hotel is small with a stylish decor, very attractive. The rooms are designed well and comfortable offering nice balconies to relax. After a day of sightseeing it is wonderful to take a 5 minute walk to the Majestic Hotel for complimentary access to their rooftop pool for a refreshing swim, a cool drink and fabulous views of the city. When we stayed there the restaurant was in need of better management during breakfast. There were many problems from poor service of kitchen staff and servers to problematic self serve coffee maker.
Hopefully this has improved. Otherwise a wonderful place to stay in Barcelona! I would like to add that Barcelona is very easy to fall in love with, the people are so friendly and it is easy to navigate through the city by foot making it a great destination. We'll be back!
