Myself and my 2 sons stayed at the Princesa Sofia for 4 nights as we were watching an FC Barcelona match at Camp Nou for a birthday treat. The staff were very attentive - particularly Tiago on the front desk who, with the other staff, made our stay a memorable one. Great breakfast (again, attentive staff) and very comfortable room....

Although the hotel was being renovated when we arrived ( no pool) nonetheless this is one of the happiest stays ever. The hotel had several bars/ cafes/ restaurants but most of all it has FABULOUS people running it. Carlos Guerrero in reception started this off by welcoming us so well, enabling an upgrade to a suite (1614) with membership of... More

We arrived in the middle of the night due to a problem with our original hotel, the night receptionist was cautious with us and didn't divulge a lot of information about the hotel to us; however, that was forgotten about once the day staff were on duty. We stayed on the 16th floor which provided access to 'The Club' ;... More

This was a great hotel. The service was great and the lobby and rooms were very nice. Good food and bar. If you're a tourist, this hotel is a bit off the beaten track -- must take a cab to see any sites.

We stayed a night here before our cruise. The location is very close to the metro access (5 min walk). Everything was clean and nice. We were part of a very large group but the staff was efficient and organized to handle the volume

An older hotel which is undergoing very much needed renovations!! The pool was closed when we stayed, we were offered access to a local health club. The room was comfortable but not luxurious - it did not match a 5 star rating. The food was good. The service offered by the concierge was fantastic!! Help was offered when asked for,... More
