Alimara Barcelona Hotel
Ranked #286 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The hotel is a little bit away from the center of Barcelona but its only 2 minutes away from a metro station so that makes things very easy.It is very near a high way but the windows are soundproof and it was not a matter for us. The reception staff could have been more kind and maybe could smile to guests a little bit more...they checked in us quicly but in a wrong type of room than the one we have requested, after we got in the room we realized the mistake and we informed them immediatly but they told us we need to wait until the next morning in order to change room as they are waiting an arrival of a group...the time was only 12.00pm (general in the hotels the official check in time is 2.00pm...) and the male receptionist refuse to help us. The room was very vlean and very spacious. The breakfast is served at the ground floor in a clean and cozy restaurant with a very kind staff, the variety of the breakfast was good. I would have rate the hotel with 4/5 but unfortunatelly I cant as in a so modern and good hotel they were not able to offer us internet connection... The wifi is "available" and free only at the lobby area (not even at the breakfast room), in a stay of 5 nights we did not manage to get on line not even once.. I am sorry alimara hotel but you MUST improve your internet conection and offer it for free every where in your hotel as you are a 4 star property and not a hostel. Do not even thing it is a cheap hotel. Overall they did not manage to reach our expectations 100% but it was a nice experience and Barcelona is an adorable city.

I stayed at the Alimara hotel for two weeks during a business trip. The hotel is located in the outskirts of Barcelona, far from the city center. It is however conveniently located close to a Metro station. The positive things about the hotel are that it is close to the Metro, there are a supermarket almost right next door, it is fairly clean and comfortable, and that the breakfast is quite good. There are also a small gym at the hotel, although I never used it.

The downside with Alimara is that it is far from the city center (20 minutes by Metro to Placa de Cataluniya, 30 minutes to Placa Espanya) and there are no restaurants nearby. A main flaw with the hotel is the extremely slow Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi should also be free in my opinion, but they charge 7 Euro a day for this sub-standard Wi-Fi. Also, the sound insulation in my room was terrible, and as the ring road is passing the hotel the sound from the traffic was very load in my room. The thermostats does not work either, so the room was most often too cold for me. The coffee at the hotel was also quite bad.

The Alimara should be a three-star hotel according to my opinion, and not a four-star as they claim to be.

Hotel is very nice, modern, and clean. The location is a little bit outside of the city centre so a car or taxi is needed to get around or you can take the metro.

The wifi internet is terribly slow, even the expensive paid option which was even too slow to check emails. Definitely not worth spending money on that!

This is a comfortable, clean and well located hotel with easy access to the city centre by metro. The staff were all charming and helpful, the rooms well appointed with comfortable beds and good bathrooms and, although breakfast was not to my personal taste, I have no complaints about the food.
BUT paying for wifi is just so unnecessary these days that one comes away feeling totally ripped off, not least the charges were very expensive and the wifi service incredibly slow compared to most hotels even in developing countries. That is the one major shortcoming of this place and I hope the management of a hotel attached to the university of tourism might recognise that and put it right soon. as I would like to return there again.

Nice hotel, modern and comfortable rooms, excellent staff (some trainees from nearby CETT university), a nice terrace in the garden for the few smokers left in the world and a very nice restaurant with a good mix of local and international food. Agree with other reviewer that paying for wifi is not like 2013 anymore, and another drawback are the completely uninterseting surroundings. However the subway is very close and will get you to the town centre in 10 minutes.

I have just stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly. The accommodation was modern and clean and represented good value.

Only negative was the restricted wifi. You had to pay if you wanted it in your room or it was free in reception.
