Coming from Asia, the size of the Hotel and the size of the Room are not what we're used from a 5-Star Hotel :-) But anyway the location is very good, not too far from Airport, close to two big shopping malls and directly located on the Road Train a easy start to go Downtown, Starbucks,some nice restaurants and Bars...

Nice hotel, clean and tidy, rooms where fine, only the pool was shut which was a shame, gym is fairly basic but enable a decent workout. Hotel seems to be having an external refurb at the moment, but that did affect my stay. I would stay again, nice friendly atmosphere.

I traveled to Barcelona on a business trip and stayed in Princesa Sofia for just over a week. I have stayed in many star hotels around the world and there is nothing special about this hotel, except for the breakfast spread which was fab. Rooms and bathroom are small for a star hotel. Staff is pretty good and helpful. Some... More

We were on a family-business trip. The hotel is situated in a position that is extremely difficult to get to if you plan to drive - leave it to the taxi people. The location is surrounded by walking distance to restaurants and shops. The room is tiny. Bathroom is tiny. Nothing special for 300 Eu/night. The breakfast buffet is the... More

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.
