I had an excellent stay at hotel Alexandra. The location is brilliant, minutes to Plaza de Catalunya and Las Ramblas. The room was spacious and well-equipped. The staff was always helpful and more importantly you could feel they were happy to help, which is not the case everywhere!! Buffet breakfast had an exhaustive choice of products which is always a bonus. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any traveller to Barcelona, business or leisure.

Dear Sam,

I feel very happy when I read your comments.. Perhaps this is the happiness that my employees felt when we are chosen by our guests to stay in Barcelona .. We feel lucky to have them in our home ..

Thanks for your comment and for recommending the hotel.

I hope to see you soon

Best regards

I stayed there for 6 nites, the location is very good , which locates only 15mins walk from Plaza Catalunya. This district is safe and quite, but surrounds by adequate shopping points and restaurants.

The staff were very helpful and nice !!

However, I think the room should add one more lamp, coz it was too dark in my room which I lived.

Dear guest

thank you very much for your stay and your words...

our hotel is in the middle of the city.. where everything is near.. a perfect location...

but for me is more important the staff... :)

I´ll try to fix the light in your room.. sometimes design and light can´t be friends...

Returned from Barcelona yesterday after a lovely 3 day break with my son. We stayed at this hotel as I had been to Barcelona before and knew the local area. I was really impressed at how clean the hotel was. The staff were friendly and really helpful. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was immaculate. Our room was on the roadside of the hotel but we didnt hear any noise from traffic at all which I was surprised at as the road was pretty busy. Air conditioning worked really well in the room and kept it cool so when you came in from the hot day you could relax and have a little siesta in the chilled room.
Only had breakfast the one morning but there was a good selection and the food was okay. As I mentioned before the staff were really helpful and always available if you needed anything.
Location really good. We were close to the local metro station which was handy as we used it to travel to Camp Nou for the tour of the stadium and to watch a match the evening before we left. It took us about 15 minutes at most to get to La Rambla where most of the shops and restaurants were based.
All in all a lovely trip and I can definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again without hesitation.
Thank you staff at Hotel Alexandra for making our stay so enjoyable.

The location of the hotel was great...we walked everwhere in Barcelona and didn't feel the need to take public transport at all. The reception staff were friendly and cheerful, and the lobby was moden and welcoming. The room was large and comfortable, and quiet at night. The bathroom was also large with a good, powerful shower. Everywhere was thoroughly clean. The only negative point about the hotel was the fact that our "double" bed was actually 2 single beds pushed together, with separate, single-sized bedding....it would have been much more comfortable and pleasant had it been a double bed, or even just with one set of larger bedding. Overall, a fantastic stay, though.

This was my second stay at the hotel and still pleased with everything it had to offer. For the price you pay, it's suprisingly stylish, comfortable and well staffed. The internet was tolerable, but it was slow on certain occassions. Fortunately, the hotel was situated in an excellent location, close to all the shopping and particuarly for my partner and I, ideally situated in the gay scene/area. For all the gym buffs, there's also an amazing gym across the street. I would come back for sure.

The hotel website suggests luxury boutique experience but what I experienced is a small room with run down furniture.
I was given a tiny room with view on a wall.
The reservation said kingside preferred whereas the bed was barely a double.
Beware this was a renovated room apparently there are also non renovated rooms...
On the positives the location is great and the staff was friendly, but I would not stay there again.

Dear guest

First of all I want to thank you for your visit and your time to write in this successful travel site.
I´m very sorry that your room was not up to your expectations, all hotel rooms are renovated. But as in all world hotels we have exterior and interior rooms .. and maybe not have asked at check in for your priorities.
In any case I would like the next time I come to serve you in person and together choose the room that you like, without any problems. :)
Moreover also I appreciate your comments to our staff friendly and our location.
I hope to see you soon with us

best regards
