I've been there for my graduation trip and it was an awesome experience. From the room to the staff and breakfast, it was simply perfect everyday. A little big pearl in the heart of Barça, near to the underground and the Camp Nou.

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...

I stayed in this hotel for one night, before boarding a cruise the next day. The Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia seems like it has been a very posh hotel, but it has definitely seen better days. Service by everybody who works there was great, from reception, to the concierge, etc. It is not a bad hotel, you can get to...

Interior is a bit dated and location is not very good for the city centre but standards are high and food were good. Obviously, very good if you come to see Barcelona playing at home. There is a huge shopping centre nearby so even if you come on business you may find time to do some shopping. Also, it drive...

I have never had a hotel more thoroughly cleaned than I did at this hotel. The entire staff was lovely and the room small but very comfortable. While it is billed as a five star hotel (and perhaps it was in the sixties) it is probably more along the lines of a 3.5. The furniture is worn and the decor...

The location is good and the lobby is ample, but I was expecting more of this 5 star hotel. I had a small bedroom considering the high price charged. No complimentary drinks in bedroom, breakfast costs 27 euros. Small bathroom. Overall, pretty disappointing.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first 5* hotel in the city, this emblematic luxury retreat forms part of the history of Barcelona and bristles with tales around national and international royalty and important figures from the world of politics, culture and entertainment who have been amongst its guests. Perfectly located on the famous Avinguda Diagonal - in the noble financial district of the city - it is only a 5 minute walk away from Camp Nou football stadium, home of the legendary FC Barcelona, and a mere 12km from the airport.
