“Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

This hotel is very well located with great service. It is within walking distance of many attractions and shops and is also close to the metro line. The staff greeted us by name each day and were willing to assist with anything, including bookings and recommendations for fantastic restaurants and flamenco dancing as well as guided tours.
The rooms are large, clean, well appointed and very modern, however they lacked a certain Spanish flair.
The bar area is fantastic and serves wonderful cocktails and coffees and the views from the rooftop are really magical.
My only disappointment with this hotel was the food. The breakfast was very average as was a dinner experience we had on Christmas eve.

From start to end the mandarin oriental did not disappoint. The service was exceptional and cannot be faulted. Our room was beautiful and very tastefully designed. The breakfasts were my favorite part of the day! Moments restaurant was also a wonderful gastronomic experience. The location is a 10. We had a magical week in Barcelona which was magnified by the pleasure of returning back to the mandarin oriental every day. What a pleasure!

What a superb and quaintly original and unique hotel! From the classy and unique yet stunning decorations throughout hotel and the rooms to the restaurants, one can feel the immaculate and ornate details which goes to show that no details is too small reflecting the truly luxurious embodiment of the Mandarin Oriental brand. We were greeted with such aplomb by the Front Office Manager, Miriam and her team. The Concierge team really shared the local knowledge and helped us to plan our itinerary resulting in us having a most wonderful experience and stay in Barcelona. Special thanks to Sebastian for listening to our needs and his recommendations really enhanced our tour sightseeing. One must not forget to try the spa which is out of this world and is a gem after the many hours discovering the wonders of Barcelona which is plenty. The hotel's location is so central and so convenient and in one of the best location in the city center.

This is a great property, worth dropping in for a drink or meal if not staying. It manages to be a proper Mandarin Oriental, which some other locations struggle with. Barcelona is a fitting location as well, very refreshing.

You couldn't ask for a more wonderful venue. The service is perfect, the room is excellent, but most appealing is the location, which is right in the middle of the most vibrant and beautiful avenue in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Room Tip: Face the main avenue

We stayed in a rental apartment not far from the hotel, and I booked myself into the spa for a quick massage - 50 minutes of heaven. My masseur Victor spoke perfect English, and at my prompting, was funny but focused on the task. I'm tempted to go back tomorrow. Very professional, friendly service, very reasonable and pretty place. Treatment rooms are small, but who cares when it's candle-lit, smells like heaven and you're in total relax mode?!

This hotel is a wonderful haven from the busy streets of Barcelona. The service is exceptional, friendly and extremely efficient. Rooms are very comfortable and modern. If bit on small side.Garden rooms more expensive and small, and not worth the extra price as view is not exceptional. Better off with a boulevard facing room, larger without balcony. Balcony not worth it in winter.great breakfast included in price sets you up for day.. Lovely informal, relaxed elegant bar for evenings and late afternoon tea.

Room Tip: Boulevard rooms larger, and you need to request a bath as most only have showers. Very few twin beds...
