“Excellent stay in Barcelona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

Stayed at Le Meridien Barcelona due to its location and being part of Starwood Hotels. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (including concierges: Ricardo and Lorena, and assistant general manager, Walter). The hotel had a lovely tradition of saying goodbye to each day at 8 PM in the lobby with a glass of Cava for all of their guests. Other special touches included being invited to a wonderful Friday Paella lunch and cooking demonstration at their CentOnze restaurant.
The hotel rooms are well appointed and we enjoyed an extended stay. The only problem which prevents me from giving the hotel an "excellent" rating is their horrendous internet service. After speaking to management, I learned that the hotel will be changing their internet service provider in due course. However, given that the problem angers dozens guests daily (it is a constant topic of conversation among people in the lobby). It is simply not feasible to do any serious business functions while staying there. Again, hotel and staff are great (!), internet leaves a lot to be desired.

We stayed at 2 hotel during this trip, pre and post a mediterranean cruise. This was my favorite. Close to everything, exceptionally large hotel rooms and immaculate. One of the nicest I have been in ever in Europe.Love the pastry shop around the corner. Could not beat the quality and the prices.

The location is great, close to the rambla but without the feeling of the rambla rush. The staff id friendly and with a very professional service level. The room was great. The breakfast, superb.
It was a perfect three night stay.

Perfect location right on the La Ramblas the famous Barcelona tourist walk street, within walking distance from Catalonia metro station which makes it easy to reach other areas of Barcelona

My room did not have the Ramblas view so I did not enjoy any view but the bedroom and toilet were good enough

Staff was very friendly and speak good English, I will return when visiting Barcelona again and hopefully this time I will get a better room with a view

We booked 2 rooms at this hotel for 1 night pre cruise. We redeemed starwood points for the 2 rooms, I am not certain that we would have booked here if we were paying the very high room rates.

We were travelling with teenagers so booked 1 room with a King and 1 room with 2 singles. We were very pleased at check in when the agent told us that they had put us in 2 connecting rooms. We had not requested this so it was above and beyond for them to think of this and offer us this convenience.

The rooms are really nice, appear to have been updated recently. Bedding is comfortable, bathrooms are stunning with TV. One room had a shower and the other a bathtub. The rooms are really small, but this seems common for Europe. We were not able to stay on the Starwood Preffered Guest floor but were told we could get water bottles, apples and magazines off of a cart on that floor. Unfortunately, the cart seemed to be empty most of the time and after a couple of phone calls about this to the front desk we had 2 water bottles delivered to our room. The only maintenance issue in the room was a slow draining shower, seemed to be plugged. As we did not discover this until the morning we were departing we did not phone about the problem, but did include this on our comment card.

The location is as mentioned by other reviewers. It is just off Ramblas and a central drive from the airport and to the cruiseport. We walked up and down Ramblas and surrounding areas. This area is crazy, must be seen for sure, but I probably could not handle being around so many people for too many days.

The hotel has a complimentary business center downstairs with 4 computers. However, the internet was not working during our stay, I attempted several times. This was mentioned to the front desk by myself and others, but apparently nothing could be done. This did not seem like a big priority for the hotel to fix, in my opinion.

I liked this hotel and would stay here again if I was able to get a special room rate or use points again, but I could never justify paying the full price. I would also recommend the hotel to friends and family if budget permitted. The location of the hotel and the ambiance of the hotel can not be beat.

“ There were a total of 10 family members staying at the hotel. 4 of which were 6 and under. When we departed, your bellman and security stayed with us to ensure our safety as we waited for our driver to pick us up on the corner of the hotel. With your hotel bellman and security, we felt safe in what could have been an unsafe situation. I commend their attention to our safety. Thank you very much!!!”
