We wanted to stay in the city center, and wanted a name we could trust, and chose Le Meridien, and couldn't have been happier! Although it is right in the center of all the action and craziness of Las Ramblas, Le Meridien offers a true oasis of calm and relaxation. The room was on the small side, which is expected in Europe, but was tastefully appointed, and had the one of the best showers around. The hotel was a few dollars more than most of the others in the area, but well worth it in our opinion. The location truly can't be beat!

Le Meridien has a great location just off La Ramblas in Barcelona making it a good choice if you want to be within easy walking distance of the old town, cathedral, and many good restaurants. The standard is very good. I was upgraded to a suite with a large balcony suitable for sunbathing or sitting out at a long table. The balcony actually had its own outdoor shower (although no special view). The room was huge with little left wanting, and plenty of space to entertain. I believe it was suite 617. At check-in I was informed that I was lucky to get this room. No kidding. Unfortunately, I checked in late and out early so I cannot comment on the restaurants. The staff were helpful and friendly. Internet was fine, and the connection also allows you to send print jobs from your room (should you need to do a little work). Overall, it is a very high standard. El Palace is more luxurious, but I like Le Meridien's location (and suite 617).

Room Tip: Suite 617 has a balcony with a large table and chairs, sun lounger, and outdoor shower. (Although no...

We just returned from our first visit to Barcelona and I must say that this hotel made it a memorable week. Yes, like everyone else has mentioned it has a fabulous location near the Ramblas and a block from the boqueria. But lots of hotels offer location...what made this hotel something worth writing about was the service. Right from the beginning, the front desk staff welcomed us warmly with and a complimentary capuccino at the coffee bar in the lobby. Bruno (at the concierge desk) never steered us wrong, whether it was a recommendation for dinner or a day trip. Other extras: International Herald Tribune every day, featherweight comforters in our extra-quiet rooms and a complimentary paella lunch that was tremendous. (We are Starwood members, so I know that not everyone will get these perks). Still, whether you are a Starwood member or not, I'd find a way to make the Meridian your base...even if it means you have to cut a day or two off your vacation to afford it. You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the Ramblas. The view is terrible but it is ultra-quiet.

We had a few days (during a heat wave) at this very good hotel right in the centre of the Ramblas tourist area. Fortunatelaty the room was airconditioned and quite well fitted out. Although showing signs of age, it was very well maintained and the double insulated windows kept all noise out. The staff were very friendly, proffessional and efficent. We had no problem being English speakers, most of the staff could comminucate in English, incluiding house keepers. Food in the hotel was very good. We also found a nice little bakery just around the back (right then left out the front door). There are a lot of little eateries nearby but avoid those on La Ramblas which are comparatively expensive. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor over the front door which is just off and away from Ramblas.

A wonderful location for seeing some of the sights of Barcelona. The hotel is right on the well-known Ramblas with its street entertainers, artists and cafes. (Windows were well soundproofed so noise was not an issue.) A block away is the Bocaria, probably the best open air market in the world. The Gothic quarter is virtually across the street, Placa Catalunya is blocks away, short cab rides to the Sagrada Familia, etc. Aside from a great location, the hotel is clean, modern and secure. Staff was very helpful with maps, schedules for metro and the like. We liked the artwork in the halls, among other nice touches. Our room, a suite, was very comfortable. So were the beds - slept really well here. Friends who stayed with us in the same hotel also liked it.

I stayed recently in the hotel during a company meeting. Hotel was, nicely located... although Rambla is not a quiet and/or clean place in Barcelona.... Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also nice. On contrary the room. just average. Far not the expected level. And the view - on the back of the hotel.... disappointing. For the price I paid I expected more.
