“Best location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

This hotel is located in the heart of the Ramblas activity.
We stayed for three nights, taking a room at the back, facing a brick wall. We heard no noise from the busy street. The room was clean and comfortable but one day, having been out from 8am until three pm we came back to find that our room had not been serviced. When complaining we were told that they had until 5pm to service the room!
There is a supermarket next door drinks are expensive to purchase in the hotel so this this was very useful.
The hotel has free use of computers and WiFi, most of the reception staff spoke good English and were very helpful.

Room Tip: Better to have aback room if you want a quiet room.

I felt compelled to review Le Meridien Barcelona as we received such excellent service.

I stayed with my wife and 3 yr old daughter at the hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is very centrally located in the middle of Las Ramblas and easy to get to the main attractions.

At the beginning of our stay, we found the room we had been allocated on the 3rd floor was noisy due to it backing on to the service lift and laundry.

Salvador the front desk manager was extremely friendly and helpful. He spent a great deal of time phoning round to find a room for our needs (quiet, nice bed for my child, lots of shelves for clothes). In the end he was kind enough to offer us a large suite on the 6th floor for a very reasonable upgrade price. He also offered us coffee in the cafe whilst we were waiting for the room to be made up.

All the staff were really friendly and made my daughter feel very special, lending her children's books for bedtime stories and gave her a nice baseball cap.

We had dinner in the restaurant one night, and again the service was exemplary. Despite there being a set menu for the football, they managed to rustle up some spaghetti for my very fussy daughter. The surroundings for breakfast, dinner and drinks in the bar were very comfortable.

This was our 3rd visit to Barcelona, and I have to say this is the best hotel we have stayed in. We will definitely come again.

The hotel is everything you could ask for in a 4 star hotel in the middle of La Rambla. Although it does not have the roof top like Hotel 1898 across the street, it does provide most amenities that you would expect. We had a Junior Suite away from La Rambla and it was very quiet. I would stay here again.

Full disclosure: I didn't pay to stay here; I redeemed my Starwood points for three free nights so that made our experience that much better. As a SPG Gold member, we were upgraded to a very nice room on the 8th floor with a balcony overlooking Las Ramblas and received free WiFi. The balcony was amazing and gave us great views of the city. Because we were fairly high up, noise wasn't a problem, although it might be on lower floors. Spain won the European Cup on the last night we were there so there was a ton of noise from the street, but even still, we weren't bothered. The rooms are on the small side, but very well-furnished; comfortable beds. The TV will be all static-y if you have all the lights on at the same time, which we didn't know until we checked out. The lobby is small with only two computers for check in and one for check out so it seemed like a total zoo the whole time we were there. Good breakfast in the restaurant, but it will cost you -- 67 EUR for 3 people. Nice service from the staff. Overall a good luxury hotel but I wouldn't have paid their rack rates; the SPG points were key.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up to avoid noise from Las Ramblas.

Really lovely hotel with some great staff - particularly the receptionist who checked us in.
Room standard for European capital city, good shower and products, an evening make up service would be nice though.
Breakfast expensive so we went to place across road which was superb and would recommend.
One note of caution is location is fantastic and central for most tourist sites but personally didn't think much to Las Ramblas, I expected it to be full of one-off, quirky street sellers - in reality its full of magazine stands, fake sunglasses/handbags etc, beggars and has a bit of a run-down feel. This does not detract from the hotel in any way though.

Room Tip: We are smokers and requested a room with a balcony - had to sign a disclaimer to say we had requeste...

Dear guest

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your comments. As our business is all about our guests, your satisfaction is what we want to work on every day!

We took good notice of your recomendations on our hub and somehow we are already doing something by providing an early arrival lounge and directing guests to our Cent Onze Bar. both innitiatives are within our early arrival program, as one of our key advantages is while one is waiting for the room to get vacant and properly clean one can discovery the city as everything is at walking distance.

We would be honored to welcome you again during your next stay in Barcelona

Best regards

Great location within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. Hotel lobby is small and somewhat chaotic. Seems to be used by some airlines for stayovers. Rooms were adequate, the tub/shower could be problematic for someone with mobility issues -- it was very high off the ground. Although the room was on the street, it was fairly quiet. The bed was low and hard, but I slept well. No complaints about the room or hotel-- but pricing seems high for this property.
