The Alma hotel is close to Casa Mila and other Gaudi attractions and it is around the corner of the best designer shops in Barcelona at Passeig de Gracia. Accordingly, the design is chic, hip and cool. However, the muted colour combinations felt almost soulless.
The high point of the hotel are the rooms. Spacious with comfortable beds and with a great shower, opened with a fingerprint scanner. Wonderful that one doesn't have to think about the key.
The staff was helpful and lovely except the staff at the check-in. Too cool for their own good. The map provided by the Alma hotel is also more stylish than useful. Get one from the tourist office.
