“Utter gem”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

You couldn't ask for a more wonderful venue. The service is perfect, the room is excellent, but most appealing is the location, which is right in the middle of the most vibrant and beautiful avenue in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Room Tip: Face the main avenue

We stayed in a rental apartment not far from the hotel, and I booked myself into the spa for a quick massage - 50 minutes of heaven. My masseur Victor spoke perfect English, and at my prompting, was funny but focused on the task. I'm tempted to go back tomorrow. Very professional, friendly service, very reasonable and pretty place. Treatment rooms are small, but who cares when it's candle-lit, smells like heaven and you're in total relax mode?!

This hotel is a wonderful haven from the busy streets of Barcelona. The service is exceptional, friendly and extremely efficient. Rooms are very comfortable and modern. If bit on small side.Garden rooms more expensive and small, and not worth the extra price as view is not exceptional. Better off with a boulevard facing room, larger without balcony. Balcony not worth it in winter.great breakfast included in price sets you up for day.. Lovely informal, relaxed elegant bar for evenings and late afternoon tea.

Room Tip: Boulevard rooms larger, and you need to request a bath as most only have showers. Very few twin beds...

This hotel lived up to all my expectation as a Mandarin Oriental hotel.
Not only is the hotel itself exceptional and the location unmatched, the service is a level other hotels can only aspire to achieve.
Nothing is an effort for Mandarin Oriental staff and the personalised service is just amazing down to the tiniest details of the doorman remembering each guest by name.
If the budget can stretch so far, the suites are amazing and the butler service to be experienced.
A special thanks to Hendrik and Carlos for making our stay so enjoyable.
Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a suite, its spacious and the butler service amazing.

The hotel is located in a very nice shopping area and the staff tried hard to provide a friendly service. Maybe it was not a busy season but generally the hotel responded to all our requests promptly. The room was very modern and some part of the room was very dark in the night and was not functional (e.g. Inside the closet and section around the safety box was extremely dark even during the day time). The room was small hence not suitable for a long term stay.

The location is great and the design clean but the shower was so small I could barely turn around in it. The staff were friendly and the quality is good but not exceptional as one expects from this Hotel Group. At the price I was charged, free internet hotel wide should be standard. Hotel Olivia Plaza is comparable in design, room size, and location at one third the price.

Room Tip: Inner courtyard room was quiet
