“Great hotel in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Sleek and modern hotel in a central location on the upper end of the Rambla. We preferred this part of Barcelona for eating out and a more relaxed feel than in the more hectic areas further south. We stayed on the top floor in a room with a balcony. The room was small, but perfectely adequate. The decor was lovely with a modern feel.

The concierge recommended several restaurants all within easy walking distance. We especially liked Windsor restaurant.

Room Tip: We liked our room on the top floor (room 601 I think), it was small, but had a lovely, spacious balc...

Murmuri is located in the more upscale section of Las Rambles. The shops are very nice restaurants everywhere and the subway stop 100 meters away. Placa de Cataluna is the
"Center of activity". If you have been to Manhattan, I would compare it to "Union Square".

The staff of the hotel is highly competent and quick to assist. We had breakfast each morning in Murmuri. I recommend this highly. The staff who ran this buffet were so nice you look forward to seeing them each morning.

The hotel was spotless! Nothing damaged or broken. The interior design in the rooms and public spaces was beautiful, functional, and sophisticated.

Only minor complain is the television channel selection (1) english station.
We did not watch much because Barcelona is so awesome you don't want to be in the room.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 210. It is the front of the hotel on Las Ramblas. The views were wonderful. You m...

We stayed here after a cruise and thoroughly enjoyed. The room was great and the desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a real boutique feel to it. We also had a small balcony that overlooked the back neighborhood. Very enjoyable to sit there with some wine voter. Long day of walking around. We were quite close to some good restaurants. Would definitely stay here agin the future.

If you would like to feel like you are 32 again; head to this sleek, hip and well-managed Barcelona hotel. Centrally located; it radiates warmth while providing excellent service handled by a staff "in the know." Whether its directions to a restaurant or tourist sight, a telephone call, programming your cell phone for the free "lobby" wi-fi; nothing is too much to ask. Kudos to Roberto who manages a superior team. We would stay here again on a moment's notice!

The hotel is located on the upper end of the Rambla and it was easy to get to any place we wanted to go. Most places were within walking distance, but there was a taxi stand at the nearby corner. The room was large and comfortable. The hotel restaurant served a decent breakfast. The hotel staff was amazingly helpful with suggestions on where to eat and reservations. They constantly provided me with maps and directions to any of my destinations. I would gladly return.

We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't fault the hotel. The decor is beautiful, the staff helpful and it has a calm welcoming atmosphere. We were upgraded to a superior room on arrival which was a lovely surprise and as we had booked through Mr and Mrs Smith we received a free bottle of cava in our room. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but there are many great cafes to pick up delicious pastries and coffee nearby. The hotel is ideally placed to visit all the amazing Gaudi attractions- we walked to the Sagrada Familia, which is truly amazing and La Pedrera, also wonderful. We caught a taxi to Parc Guell, get the hotel to book it as it is cheaper. The parc has great views over the city and more amazing Gaudi art. Do go to the sister hotel Majestic which has a rooftop bar and pool with views over Barcelona. We will be back to continue our exploration of the wonders of Barcelona.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the main street, great views but very quiet

My fiance and I stayed at the Murmuri in mid-August for 4 nights.

Our room on the 3rd floor was large and very well appointed. The bathroom was big and the whole hotel is very modern. Breakfast on the ground floor was great. There was not a lot available locally for breakfast, so we were happy to spend a little bit extra for a substantial breakfast. We can't survive on a mediterranean breakfast after a run around the streets of Barca.

The reception was great when it came assisting with reservations and providing recommendations. For the price, the Murmuri should have wi-fi included in the rooms but this does not change my positive review.

We enjoyed using the pool facilities at the Hotel Majestic after a hot day in Barca. Too be honest we would have stayed at the majestic if it was within our budget, but the Murmuri was an excellent second best.

The location was great, with the Diagonal subway station very nearby we had easy access to La Rambla, Park Guell, La Sagrada and connecting stations when travelling to Barcelonetta for a day at the beach.

This hotel is approximately 1200m walk from the hub of La Rambla. A casual 15 minute walk or 5 minute train ride. The restaurants in the surrounding area are great.
