“Good Location, friendly and helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

The hotel is located very conveniently, very close to old Barcelona and walking distance to the seaside. Comfortable rooms, restaurant and bar on site, two doors away from a Carrefour and a block north of a great local market on La Rambla.

Parking available as well on site. This is a good place for visiting Barcelona, not sure it would be great for business as there does not appear to be any office concentration nearby although plenty of taxi service and near public transit if necessary to move away from the area.

Room Tip: Ask to look over La Rambla, rooms looking the other way are subject to the little streets and you ma...

We loved our stay at Le Meridien in Barcelona. Great location on the corner of La Ramblas- easy walk to the Placa Catalunya, Gaudi landmarks, the Gothic District and the waterfront. However, still pretty quiet.
Nice size room, helpful concierge.

Was on a 2 day trip then came back for one day later in the week. staff very attentive and eager to please. stayed in two separate rooms. the street side rooms where cozy nicely appointed, The only criticism I would have would be of design, the bathroom is made up of opaque glass doors/walls, sliding, with no lock, very awkward. I stayed on the Rambla side room, which was very nice and had a much better layout. Regardless, you can't go wrong. The concierge (Bruno) was exceptional and it made our trip that much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: rambla side room is much better layout - it cost more , but worth it. street side room has and awkw...

We also booked this hotel because we are Starwood Preferred members and are very glad we did! The Le Meridien in Barcelona was a fantastic choice for our recent trip to Barcelona! The hotel is in a perfect location as it is not directly on La Ramblas - but a few steps away. The staff was very friendly and all spoke wonderful English, I heard them speaking French and Spanish as well. The hotel was very busy at check-in, but the staff handled it well and were VERY accommodating about our room and were able to help us out by getting us a more spacious room with a rollout bed for our last minute unexpected guest. The breakfast was amazing and the hotel was very clean and trendy. It was definitely up to Starwood standards and I will now stay here everytime I travel to Barcelona. I am a Platinum member and used points to pay for this stay and the staff still applied the room upgrade! The management was very responsive to our requests and did everything they could to make our stay very pleasant.

Room Tip: Make sure to note if you have more than 2 guests in the room or else you will not be able to fit!

This was a great hotel for our short stay in Barcelona. We had a room on level 5 on the La Ramblas side and had no trouble with noise except for one night when celebrations from the World Cup woke us. The bed was comfortable and a useful feature was the sensor movement night lights.

Greetings from Le Méridien Barcelona,

I see you liked our Le Méridien signature bed!
And our hotel in general!
Thank you for the nice comments!

I hope you will forgive our Barcelona citizens and visitors for their World Cup excitement.
Although we did not reach the finals this time, we are still very passionate about football.

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights mid week on business.

As reviewed previously the rooms are not big, they are averagely sized against other European hotels. The room is equipped with satalite television with several lauguage choices, mini bar and air conditioning.

The bathroom is of a high standard, my only concern would be if you have mobility issues it would be a struggle to get into the shower which is incorporated into the high sided bathtub.

Staff are friendly and happy to help.

Breakfast is a well appointed buffet.

Happy to return for business or leisure.

Stayed June 2014

We booked at this hotel because we are Starwood Preferred members, so glad we did. Check-in early a.m. was quick, but busy. Our room wasn't ready , so we went to the very comfortable lobby coffee bar and had breakfast, The front desk clerk came to us and told us we were to be given a complimentary room to check into while our room was readied, hours away. So we checked into a normal, nice room then spent hours exploring Barcelona . Once we returned, we were shown to our room, and we think , the most fabulous room of the hotel. Gorgeous views over rooftops of the city, and sunset view. Really, much more than we expected. I would go back to this hotel just to stay in this room again .
Across the street is the beautiful Hotel 1898, with a stunning rooftop terrace bar, don't miss it.
From our hotel in the morning, we could walk 20 steps to Starbucks , the next night, we crossed the street on foot to a fabulous bistro-type restaurant, delicious food. Great location, you can walk everywhere. Don't miss going down to the open air farmers market. Ask anyone, they will direct you. Best part of our stay at this hotel was the fabulous location Ramblas district.

Room Tip: Ask for upper level room.
