I can only agree with all other people who have stayed on this hotel. The location is perfect just 20 m from to the 'quiet' end of the Rambla but still close and in walking distance to great places like Sagrada Familia and Casa Vicens and the big train station Passeig de Gràcia at which the train goes strait to the airport. The breakfast was nice and fresh and there where several good restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street seems larger than the ones facing the street.

I had stayied in the hotel before. I knew it was great for business trips, but it is even better for couples:
Location is excellent, close to all hot spots in town and restaurants.
Service is very good too, but what really made the difference was the suite #216 in the renewed part of the hotel. The bed, the lounge and, mostly, the bathtub. I had a foam bath like in a 5* hotel ... Simply brilliant!

Room Tip: No doubt: suite #216

I have stayed for 5 days. The hotel location is awesome - Casa Battlo and other Gaudi`s monuments are just around the corner. I enjoyed to be in the city center, but on a quiet side street, so sleeping was pleasant without any noices. You can easily walk everywhere, Sagrada Familia in one direction, La Rambla and Barceloneta beach the other direction. Rooms and bathorooms very clean and decent standard. Breakfast very delicious and satisfying. I definitely recommend.

Room Tip: i have stayed at the end of the corridor, where the cleaning ladies started to do their job everymor...

Stayed for a week in February.

Typical European 4 star modernish hotel. Excellent location near Passeig de Gracia, Gaudi buildings, and metro. Very polite and attentive staff. Mostly reasonable English speaking staff. Rooms reasonably large and comfortable by European standards. Some quirky room features eg the bidet blocks the bathroom door!

Breakfast is an average spread.

Bartender an artiste with cocktails, but slow service.

Be sure to ask for a room on the inner courtyard side if you want a quiet room, as the street side is a bit noisy.

Would stay again, as a value 4 star hotel, but many other equally fine choices in this prime and fun location of the city.

We stayed at the Alexandra Hotel for a brief weekend visit at the end of September, 2012. The staff were exceptionally pleasant, friendly and helpful.

When we woke up on the Saturday morning the rain was torrential - even worse than what we are well used to in a rainy Irish season! We asked the Reception Staff if there was a shopping centre nearby and they responded by going out into the street and calling us a taxi. We were whisked off to a great shopping centre within easy reach of the hotel; it was the only escape from a day of very heavy rain in the lovely Barcelona.

The room was very comfortable, quiet and warm; it had all the usual comforts one would expect in a hotel of this standard.

The location of the hotel is excellent with Las Ramblas on the doorstep. It was very easy - on the beautiful sunny Sunday! - to travel on foot to some of the lovely sites in Barcelona. Despite an extremely wet day we were certainly able to make the most of our weekend trip to Barcelona largely due to the proximity of the hotel to Las Ramblas. Another trip to Barcelona will be required to take in all the sights and Alexandra Hotel will be top of the list when accommodation is being sought.

The courtesy and helpfulness of the staff is to be highly commended.

My wife and baby stayed here and had a great time. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. Its very close to many of the main attractions. The breakfast was a little on the pricey side but that's not a problem as there are numerous cafes nearby. I would happily stay here again.
