“Wonderful experience in Barcelona”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was the first of four hotels in Spain for this trip, and we were overwhelmed by the customer service and amenities. Staff at the front desk made us feel special, even though we arrived 3 hours before our room was ready (which was 3 hours before the posted ready time!). Gave us ideas on things to do until then. There is a great hot water kettle in the room, which while European typical small, was adequate and the refrigerator with extra space for us was nice. Great bed for sleeping! Easy email access in the business center, good health club, breakfast beyond belief, and a very impressive dinner menu. The best of all 4 very impressive hotels. Thanks for a great experience.

Room Tip: Front rooms can be a little noisy from the street.

This hotel has the most perfect location in all of Barcelona!! I have stayed here once before for 5 days and loved it. Unfortunately, this was only a 1 night stay and because of flight problems, my husband and I basically just slept at the hotel and didn't get to spend any time in Barcelona. :-( Our room was small, but nicely appointed. The bathroom had all glass walls and looked like something you would find in a W Hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor and overlooked the Rambla, but the noise was not bad at all. I just wish I hadn't been so tired after the long flight from California and the time changes. We are SPG Gold member so the hotel let us check out at 4:00 pm instead of 12:00 pm... which was super nice since i didn't wake up until noon!!

Sylvia!

I am so sorry to read that this time you were not able to enjoy any of Barcelona's treasures!
That's a real shame!
But I hope you will get the chance to come back in the near future and stay a few more days.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you do so.

Kind regards,

Elisa Barral

As others have said, this hotel is just off Las Ramblas near "the action". It is a lovely hotel, decent size rooms, good bathrooms, very nice lobby with a lovely coffee bar that I stopped by each morning. Within walking distance to many many sites like the Picasso Museum and the old part of the city. Also a tiny but lovely rooftop "spa" with a small soaking tub outside that was very pleasant in the warm weather. Only withheld a star because it was noisy at night. Ask for a quiet room.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the main street

The location of the hotel is in a very "high energy" location with tons of tourist traffic and locals alike enjoying La Rambla. During our stay there was a festival that was for the patron St. of Barcelona & there was a festive air directly outside of the hotel. Inside the hotel was modern quiet. A wonderful respite from the activity outside. From check in to check out the hotel impressed. Great shower. Perfect not overly hard bed. Good natural light in the room. Large living space & enough power outlets in the right places. Quiet. Fantastic Spanish breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice. Overall felt that the place offered fantastic value for cost. If you cant be happy here you may want to reexamine your reasons for travelling.

Word to the wise: Unless you absolutely need a car to go far away from the city on business or something the public transportation and taxi system cant be beat in Barcelona. Parking at this hotel, while available and well marked, would be both expensive and foolish due to the difficulty of a non local navigating the streets to get to this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of September 2013 for 4 nights. I was in room 244.

Room Tip: Be nice at check in.

I've stayed at a lot of hotels and I didn't have great hopes for this hotel due to the location. We had a Prestige Suite which was a spacious 2 room corner suite with a great view of La Rambla and a Mediterranean Suite which was on an upper floor with a single room and a quite spacious terrace and outdoor seating areas and a shower (without a view, but still very nice). The staff were very friendly throughout the stay and quickly and professionally resolved an error with room service. A very pleasant stay.

It means a lot to have an excellent hotel close to the action in the most popular place in the city. We were able to walk to most major attractions. Plenty of restaurants and shops. Clean, comfortable room. Good service. Excellent food. Our view was balconies of laundry on some crowded side street.

Greetings from Le Méridien Barcelona,

this is indeed one of the most "Barcelona" view. Rooftops and balconies!
It looks like you fully enjoyed Barcelona's offerings. But I hope you left some to see so you'll come back in the near future.

Great (no, amazing) location in the heart of Barcelona. Staff was extremely friendly; concierge in particular was better than we've had in most other locations (restaurants, tourism sites, etc.). Rooms were also quite nice. Will stay here again!
