in august i travelled to barcelona and stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful hotel. everything was fine until 2 days after i arrived home and unpacked my only luggage that i realized that i have forgotten a dress in my hotel room. the dress i have bought in Spain and only wore it there once. i have contacted the hotel, explain the situation to them, send them pictures of myself wearing the dress, so they can see what to look for. the said they will for it. whoever entered the room after i checked out said that nothing was left in the hotel room. i have explained to the manager that i don't want to cause any trouble for anyone, if the person will just bring in the dress and leave it somewhere to be found. i guess that if that person said no in the first place he/she couldn't say anything or bring the dress back. initially i was going to wear that dress when i was flying back home, i took it out of my luggage, put it in the wardrobe, then in the last moment i decided to wear something else and in the rush i have forgotten the dress in the wardrobe, on a hanger. i thought i share my experience as i was very surprised that a hotel of such high standards will have the problem of not returning lost items. if it was a cheap hotel maybe i wouldn't have expected much. i was very disappointed, especially of the attitude of the hotel's manager, who said to me that it is the responsibility of the guests to look after their belongings, so if you forget things in this hotel you can say goodbye to it

The Murmuri Hotel is in a great location in Barcelona – one block from Gaudí’s La Pedrera and from Passeig de Gràcia, the latter being the city’s premier shopping street. Half a block in the other direction (northwest) is Rambla de Catalunya, a lovely boulevard with cafes in the center and fewer people than on Las Ramblas. The hotel also has small apartments, to which we treated ourselves for our first few days in the city. The apartments are quite attractive (though design sometimes trumps function), their kitchens are adequately equipped, and the bedroom and bathroom are quite nice. The rooms have electric shutters, which enable you to sleep in almost total darkness.
Despite all this, the hotel left us disinclined to recommend it highly. Service is on the laissez-faire side: front-desk staff didn’t seem eager to answer our questions, and the room was erratically restocked with coffee and toiletries. Also, the front apartments are located across the street from a noisy bar, whose smokers stand out on the street having louder and louder conversations as the night progresses, so if you go, get room at the back. All in all, it’s a fine spot to use as retreat while getting over jetlag and becoming oriented in the city, but is not up to the standards we'd expect for the price.

There are over 500 hotels in Barcelona. Thank God for Trip Advisor reviews to guide us. The Hotel Murmuri is in a terrific location, quiet neighborhood, yet just a block away from Gaudi's Casa Mila. We stayed in the Hotel's apartment "Leciu". It is a 2-bedroom, 2 bath apartment with great closets, a huge living room, with a dining room and a lovely terrace. This apartment also has a kitchen that includes a full-size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, and (an added bonus) a washer/dryer combo. This would be perfect for extended stays to the beautiful city of Barcelona. We were only there for 2 nights but we were 4 people. This room arrangement worked well for us and was reasonable for the location and class of the hotel. CAUTION: the other reviews of this hotel are true, the breakfast is expensive (16 Euros) and the selection is sketchy. The breakfast is available until 11am but by 10:45 they're closing up. This can be a challenge if you're jet lagged and are not familiar with the city/location. We found a fabulous patisserie one block away that served awesome coffee, called El Fornet. This is the way to go for sure.

Dear guest,

It is a pleasure to read you enjoyed your stay at Murmuri Residence. Ads you may already know, Murmuri Residence offers its guests the possibility of staying in five welcoming apartments located in the heart of Barcelona, in a building attached to Hotel Murmuri.
Each of them offers the intimacy and comfort of a small home but, with all the services and amenities enjoyed by hotel guests (for instance, room service). In regards to our buffet breakfast, we take note of all your comments and we will work on improving the selection that we currently offer. Our buffet breakfast opens from 7am to 11am and after hours you can enjoy from an Express Breakfast (coffee, fresh juice, pastry/sandwich, granola, etc) until noon in the bar or even al fresco in the outdoor Terrace where the famous Rambla de Catalunya.

We had a fantastic stay. The hotel is modern without feeling trendy or snobby. While the room was on the smaller side (expected in Europe), it was beautifully appointed and had good storage space. The service was excellent - everyone was very warm. We received an upgrade and a welcome amenity (chilled cava and a snack).

The location can't be beat.

We would happily return.

The Hotel is in a great location, with good access to shopping and restaurants and bars. It is also in walking distance to some of the Guadi buildings. The rooms are well appointed and have great beds and pillows and generous size bathrooms. The staff overall were quite helpful.
The hotel has a sister hotel with access to a pool and gym but we didn't avail ourselves of this.
Wifi was free in common areas however was challenging to connect to most of the time and breakfast was adequate. But there are there are lots of great choices in and around the hood, so not a big issue.
I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Barcelona.

My wife and I started our honeymoon with a quick break to Barcelona, we originally booked the Majestic but reading reviews we were warned of heavy construction work and moved the booking to the MurMuri.

We were not dissapointed, we arrived early at 10.30 am expecting to leave bags for a later check in, we were welcolmed by reception and showed to our room on the 5th floor, a very spacious, clean and modern bedroom, the only dissapointemnt was 2 x single beds pushed together on a Honeymoon is not ideal.

About 5 minutes late we received a call from reception congratualting us on our marriage and delivered a bottle of champagne and strawberries - a lovely touch!

The Shower was fantastic, a decent docking station for the i-pod, plenty of storage space and extremely quiet, just what we needed.

The breakfast was the only reason i cannot give 5 starts, it's very poor considering the quality of all the surrounding bars and cafe's and would recommend giving it a miss - cold coffee on a self service table.

Location was excellent and on a lovely street, Las Ramblas and the centre is a good 15 minute walk but really pleasent and one we enjoyed every day!

If we returned to Barcelona I would wait for the Majestic refurb to finish and go there as the location is better, they have a rooftop terrace and spa and has a greater feel of luxury.

Room Tip: Rooms out the back overlook a crowded neighbourhood, stick to the front if possible
