“LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

I went with my kids to Spain, in order to assis to a match of FCBarcelona.
Our party booked 2 rooms at this hotel.
Overall the hotel is very good, room were very clean, staff is very friendly, the food at the bar was very good, although the breakfast buffet I didnt like that much, not much variety.... a quiet boutique hotel.
But the best of all was the location of the hotel. only 50mts from paseo de gracia, and 5 or 6 blocks from pza catalunya .... couldnt be better.

The only negative side, is that the rooms are too small.

I would deffinatly go back to this hotel....the best location plus the best price/return.

Room Tip: The is a tapas restaurant just across the corner, one of the best in Barcelona ... highly recomended...

Stayed 2 nights in this excellent hotel. Great location close to Ramblas, shops, bars, restaurants and short walk to both the red and blue tourist bus line. There was also a taxi rank just outside the hotel. At the northern end of the Ramblas - so not too noisy. Hotel was clean and the room spacious. Staff were excellent, they gave fantastic suggestions for restaurants and made reservations for us. They couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. They also all spoke great English (which was useful as my Spanish is pretty sparse!) Reception had tickets to many of the major attractions and discounts were available. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Barcelona.

My wife and I have just had the most fantastic week long stay in Barcelona at the Alexandra Hotel on Carrer de Mallorca. Excellent location, no more than a few minutes walk from all the popular areas. The hotel itself is immaculate with friendly and helpful staff. Our room on the fifth floor was airy, and extremely clean and tidy and a very good size. It was very modern and not dark and dingy like some other hotels we have stayed in previously. Its location in the exclusive shopping district was surrounded by so many cool street cafe's that we were spoiled for choice. All in all, a very pleasurable vacation, and I would strongly recommend a stay at this superb hotel.

Good hotel for the money - especially if you get a good deal... we found it to be clean and bright and in a great location just the right distance from the hectic La Ramblas and close to good restaurants and sights... Room a bit on the small side but I guess European hotals are like that... when Monday came you could tell it was a business hotel primarily but for a weekend break it was sufficiently romantic! The on-site restaurant was good and good value but lacking in atmosphere... much better to sample tapas from the resturant across the road which was fantastic! (April 2011)

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The first time was a family holiday in the summer 2010. this trip was fine. Second time was in march 2011. The toliet broke and it took two days to get it fixed. The food was over priced and during are meal a thunder storm started and people just walked in to take shelter. the bar staff were very slow. The hotel is in a prime location however they dont make the most of it.

Just returned from a 7 day stay at this hotel in one of the best locations in Barcelona. Right in between La Rambla de Catalunya (which turns into the famous La Rambla a few streets down) and the Passeig de Gracia, where all the high-end shops are located. The hotel is bright and immaculate, and very hip. Everyone on the staff was pleasant and helpful. The room included breakfast, which was a lovely buffet with quite a variety of foods. The lobby bar and restaurant Da Luca was a cool place to end up for a nightcap. We had the same bartender every night, her name was Lena, I believe. She took great care of us while she juggled serving diners inside and out and keeping all the other bar patrons happy. We did not eat in the restaurant, but other guests we spoke with praised the food. There was one tiny drawback in the room: there were no drawers and limited shelving for folded clothes in the closet. We had to keep our things in our luggage. We considered this a minor irritation, certainly not enough of one to keep us from returning to this lovely property.

Room Tip: We stayed on the back side of the hotel, which looked out onto the backs of houses and apartment bui...
