Great location near the awesome Ramblas. Good overall experience. Miquel and Armando provided us with information for Flamenco Shows, restaurant info, help with taxi service.

Would return in a. Heartbeat. The value for the 3 nights was great.

The rooms were very modern and very clean. Spent a nice evening before we left outside the street patio and enjoyed the ambience of Barcelona.

This designer hotel is a very refreshing addition to the centre of Barcelona. It is located in a reasonably quiet area with easy access to the old city and very well connected with public transport. The hotel is very well equipped both for a guest just spending some day in Barcelona as a tourist as well as for someone who is there on business. In fact, it provides excellent meeting facilities for smaller working meetings and the respective catering. Breakfasts are generous and served in a pleasant environment of a restaurant that is located just above the ground floor and gives an airy experience. It has been an overall excellent experience worth repeating, which will definitely happen when I am back as a tourist.

Very well located hotel, nice urban design (recently renovated), fantastic breakfast buffet, very calm area in the heart of the city. Very friendly staff. It's our 3rd time in this hotel. We tried different categories of rooms, and we were never disappointed.

Hotel Alexandra
We had a pleasure to stay at this hotel during a week in June of 2013. Location of the hotel is excellent, walking distance to major sites such as Sagrada di Familia (10 min), Casa Batlo, La Pedrera and Placa de Catalunya is some 15-20 minutes away. Hotel is located between two major streets, Pacage de Gracia, with its numerous stores (from LV to HM) and public transportation stops, and Rambla la Catalunya, with nice restaurants and coffee shops, both of which provide easy access to Placa de Catalunya and La Rambla. Also on the plus side Example neighborhood is a upper class one and not as “infested” with tourists as some areas, with its vide and orderly streets we felt more than safe and have enjoyed numerous walks. On top of this this area is still studied on numerous schools as an prime example of an excellent urban development plan and execution, to stroll down the green streets is a pleasure and level of planning was uncanny with all buildings of the same height and perfect street junctions. On the other side it is a pricier neighborhood and prices in the restaurants are somewhat higher than in some other areas, but at the same time lower than in purely tourist parts of the city.

First impression of the hotel is a positive one with a modern lobby and kind and professional staff. We have asked for a higher floor and were “awarded” with a room on the last 8th floor. It appears that first 5 floors were from the start part of the hotel and other were additionally added, to access remaining floors one has to use a single small elevator located on the far right which actually connects two buildings. We had an impression that first five floors are superior, at least halls appear to be more luxurious than our was, we did not enter any other rooms so we can not know for certain. Our room was fairly large with a comfortable double bed, largish TV, mini bar and a nice bathroom, which included both shower and a bath tub. The main issue which we had with the room is lack of light (only 3 lamps were present) also all gray walls did appear somewhat depressing and lacking details, also lack of shelves for beauty products in the shower was baffling. Free WIFI is available through the hotel.

Due to somewhat higher price we have opted for stay without breakfast, for far less money one can easily find breakfast in some of the numerous coffee shops (usually price for a croissant and a coffee is 2 euros) or preferably in specialized pastry shops (on

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your comments .. is quite an accurate description of where we are and how we are ..

without any doubt, all rooms are similar .. at its plant the only difference you will find is the bath room and hallways..

I´m sorry for the lights..decorators sometimes think more about aesthetics and less about our customers...

I pick your opinion and share it with the department in charge

I hope to see you again in the next future..

Best regards!

Due to somewhat higher price we have opted for stay without breakfast, for far less money one can easily find breakfast in some of the numerous coffee shops (usually price for a croissant and a coffee is 2 euros) or preferably in specialized pastry shops (one is located “bellow” the hotel and the other one “above” both on Rambla la Catalunya street) which offer a larger diversity of products (price ranges from 1 to 2 euros). We had dinner one night in the restaurant service was excellent but the menu was the same one as for the room service with the same prices, food was average.

After a hard day of walking proximity to metro and bus stops is a blessing, also please have in mind that from Barcenoleta there is a excellent connection via buss number 17. Due to this a t10 pass is advised.

Having in mind a good price and an excellent location and service we could recommend this hotel.

We just came back from Barcelona, and from staying at this lovely hotel.
The stuff was nice and helpful.
The breakfast was very good (in our case it was part of the hotel deal).
The hotel was very clean and so was our room.
the room also had - noise proof windows, so there was no noise from the street.

neighborhood is pretty much in the center
In the beagining we were sorry its not on (or near) the Ramblab st, But after visiting the noisy crowded Rambla, we were so happy about the alexandra's location !!!!
Buses + metro + tourist buses = everywhere , just few minutes (3-4) from the hotel.
I can only say good things.....

Stayed at the Alexandra Hotel recently for 4 nights. The hotel is situated in an upscale neighborhood and is walking distance to Las Ramblas and Plaza Cataluyna. The staff was very helpful and courteous. They booked a few excursions for me, which was nice. The room was nice for European standards. Only wish the room had coffee/tea machines. Would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona.
