I am always a bit skeptical when I read about the fabulous service at hotels. Often it depends on who is working at the front desk and how busy they are. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the staff at the Hotel Alma. We received a very warm reception on our arrival and throughout out stay. There was always someone available to help with recommendations for dinner or to find us a taxi when needed. We were greeted warmly every time we returned to the hotel. There was always enough staff on duty to deal with all of their guests.
The room was also a great value. We had a large room with a sitting room separated from the sleeping area. There was a lot of storage for luggage which meant that the room felt more like an apartment than a hotel. The furniture was comfortable and stylish and the room was cleaned whenever we went out. There was a large bathroom with a separate room with the toilet. The mini-bar was stocked with free water and soft drinks which was a nice feature. The hotel is in a great area within walking distance to a lot of the famous Gaudi architectural spots. Excellent breakfast (not included) with seating in an outdoor courtyard in nice weather.
I’d stay here again without hesitation.
