We stayed for 3 nights in April and really enjoyed this hotel. It was an excellent location- the aeroport bus stops a 2 min walk away and the metro is also 2 mins walk. You can walk to the las ramblas, and the Barrie gothic area for dinner. The room was beautiful- clean, spacious and everything we needed (fridge, safe, lots of space for luggage & clothes). The staff were very helpful & friendly and spoke excellent English. The roof top bar was closed unfortunately but the downstairs bar was still open and really nice for a late night drink or coffee after a long day. The only thing was that we were in room 210 right next to the void above the bar so it was very noisy at night- I had to sleep with ear plugs.

I would like first to thank you for taking the time to share a review on TripAdvisor related to your recent stay at the Hotel Pulitzer Barcelona. It gives us great pleasure to see that you liked your room and that you found the location so convenient. I will make sure to share your comments about the staff with my team. They will be so glad to hear them!
I'm so sorry that the rooftop terrace was closed during your stay. These days our maintenance team and gardeners have been working hard to get the terrace in perfect condition for its opening due on the first of May.
Regarding the noice, please accept my apologies. Our guests usually sleep very comfortably. However, it seems clear that we failed to let you sleep soundly. If your live ever brings you back to Barcelona, I hope that you will give us a second chance to show you that you can get a deep and restorative sleep at the Hotel Pulitzer. Please feel free to contact me directly.

We were easy walking distance to just about everywhere we wanted to go - the Gothic Quarter, the waterfront, shopping, an English language movie theater - and several metro stops are close by for when you want to go somewhere farther afield. It was also a nice plus to be a block and a half from the airport extress bus - we took it both ways and it was so easy.

The lounge/bar is very nice in the hotel and everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. Our daughter forgot a clothing item in the room and when I emailed the front desk about trying to have it mailed to us in Madrid, they responded rapidly and had it mailed off within an hour of getting the address from me.

We reserved 3 basic/standard rooms - and they were basic/standard. Snall and no frills. But we didn't spend a lot of time in our rooms, so that was not a problem. It's a great choice.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the street as there are random, loud/drunk people walking about at all h...

The staff were very helpful and the downstairs sitting area was very comfortable and the location was excellent but i was staying for five nights and wanted or should I say needed more. The room was basic, no clock, only one english TV channel and no desk to sit and work. Also the room just didn't feel clean! Every morning at 8.00am there was noise from the housekeeping staff and also from the top floor where there is a roof garden and obviously work was being done. I feel that 8.00am is just too early for that much noise. The breakfast was fine although nothing to write home about. Not really a lot of choice and the coffee was terrible. I did actually complete their questionnaire a couple of days after arriving handed it in at the reception but the manager said she never received it. Completed another at the end which she responded to although she didn't say very much.

Room Tip: I was told I was getting a "good" room but what I got I wouldn't call good!

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Tripadvisor community. I would like to convey my sincerest apologies for your disappointing experience. I was saddened to learn that your expectations were not met.

It's true, there's no clock in our rooms. It had never been an issue so far, that's why it was never added to the rooms.
Regarding English TV channels, there should be a minimum of 5 per TV. Our maintenance staff will double check all our TVs to make sure that they are properly broadcasting all the channels.
Our staff tries hard not to make noise at any time, particularly early in the mornings. I'm really sorry to hear that you were disturbed by noise.
Our breakfast receives congratulations by our guests, both in terms of quality and of choice. I'm so sorry to read that it was not up to your expectations. Please feel free to send me an e-mail with what you missed in our breakfast. We’ll be more than happy to take your insights into consideration.

Please rest assured that we have taken all the issues you raised on board for immediate consideration.

Best regards,

Blanca Quintana

We've stayed 4 nights end of January and despite the relatively cold weather we found a warm and very friendly front office team! The location is also recommending this hotel, positioned near Place of Catalonia . I recommend the "celebration pack" which was above my expectations!!! Thank you for this excellent surprise! The lounge bar from the top floor is a green, relatively quiet and original designed place. As found in previously comments, the main entrance to Pulitzer could be not easy to find at arrival, but finally this hotel is one of the best choice in Barcelona!

Stayed here for my Birthday weekend (22-24 February, 2014) - Fantastic experience! All staff was helpful, knowledgeable about the area and very polite and professional. The staff speak Spanish and English which is always helpful for the tourist who cannot converse in Spanish. Lovely and convenient location, the bus from the airport costs 5.50euros each and takes you from your Terminal straight to Placa de Catalunya and the hotel is only a 3 minute walk from that bus stop!

Our room was on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the street which was a great view at night when everything was lit up and buzzing and also lovely to wake up to on a sunny morning!

Cocktails in the bar were also very good and we loved the attention to detail regarding the amenities in the bathroom (woman and man boxes full of things like a toothbrush, razor, shaving gel, shower cap etc.)

Finally, I was very impressed with how willing the front of house staff was when it came to mapping out restaurants and tourist attractions etc. They all took the time to give clear and concise directions to places in the city as well as being polite and professional.

I will most certainly be staying at the Hotel Pulitzer again upon my return to Barcelona!

P.S. the beds were also SUPER comfortable!
