“Good location but small rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

I choose this hotel for its location . The location on passieg de Garcia is the best one can find in Barcelona .Its a shoppers Mecca but Sunday the streets are deserted as all shops are closed . Gaudis casa batlo n casa milo are just a block away . Las ramblas is just a10 min walk even the sagrada familia is just a very short ride by taxi . I'd say a 20 min by foot ..

I found the rooms extremely small for a 5star hotel . Yes they provide bvlgari amenities n nespresso machine in room but it still does not make up for the size . .

Having expressed my disappointment about the room I have to compliment the hotel for its beautiful rooftop deck . It's a great place to unwind over cocktails n the views of the city are breathtaking . .

Amazing hotel, very friendly staff, excellent location especially for shopping lovers, make sure to try the buffet breakfast as well as the breathtaking roof top lounge. Our room was around 35 sq.m large enough for a couple. I recommend this hotel to everyone wanting to feel at home

Can't say enough about the service at this property. Got great deal through my AMEX Platinum. From door men to concierge were always extremely courteous (without being fake about it). Yes regular rooms can be a bit small, but everything else makes up for it (and then some). The rooms are very well soundproofed. Great bathrooms. Spa is small but effective. Rooftop bar/pool offers great views. Will recommend to friends and family. And probably the best feature is the location relative to most of the best attractions of Barcelona. Go to the cafes along Paseo de Gracia and people watch while having a drink. You wont regret it.

Room Tip: try upgrading the room thru AMEX Platinum

Spent 3 nights at the Majestic Hotel with my sister in law celebrating her birthday and seeing the sights of Barcelona. It was my second trip to Barcelona this year. Previously we stayed at the Melia Sarria hotel which was classed as 4 star. The Majestic is a 5 star rating but felt so much better and a huge improvement on the Melia Sarria which though good, was more of a business hotel.
From the moment we arrived at The Majestic we felt cosseted. The staff were attentive but not overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble. We were delighted to find our room had been upgraded and a particularly nice touch was a note from the hotel management wishing my sister in law a happy birthday together with a bottle of complimentary cava.
We had booked bed and breakfast and are very pleased that we had. Breakfast was fantastic. So many fruit juices, yoghurts, fresh fruits, nuts, meats, cheeses, breads, cakes etc. etc. and also the option to have whatever your hearts' desire of cooked items. It certainly set us up for the day.
Our room was delightful and on the 7th floor, we had a balcony from which we could watch the hustle and bustle on passeig de gracia.
We found this hotel to be in an ideal location for everything - shopping, sight seeing, restaurants. We plan on returning again next year and will certainly book The Majestic again.

After couple of worst Hotel experiences in Barcelona , for final night I checked in Majestic Hotel. Was welcomed by Pascal Billiard - General Manager at Lobby where I understand he does this for most of his guests checking - in.

What an Amazing Hotel is this and how famously it has been managed. The luxury and hospitality is hidden in every detail your eye can catch. I was thrilled to have the red roses in every where , orchids placed in every room. The staff starting from reception are great , Guest Relation Manager Ingrid , how welcoming and attentive she was to make me feel comfortable and feel at home. Always on alarm waiting for guests to ask something so that they can make it happen.

I only stayed one night and given the limited time frame , I had a fantastic sleep, the bathroom was large and rain shower experience was remarkable. Breakfast is something every guest should enjoy and taste before they leave. Wi-Fi in the room was fullest and so satisfactory. Hotel has the best location looking to one of the richest and famous streets in Barcelona.

Bathroom amenities are Bvlgari and it is a real treat to your body and hair. Next time , will ensure to stay couple of days more.

Thanks to Majestic for making me feel special.

We just got back from Spain! We stayed at the Majestic for 4 days and we loved it! The location is fantastic, about a 15 minute walk to Las Ramblas, on the Passeig De Gracia which is a main street with great shops. You're not right on top of Las Ramblas, but you can walk over to the 2 Gaudi residences in the neighborhood. The hotel has a great rooftop deck, pool, bar, with great views of the Sagrada Familia. The staff is great, very helpful. The room was beautiful, 3rd floor overlooking a quiet street. We loved everything about the room except that it is a tad on the small size, and had twin beds. It was all beautifully done. There is a big gap in price from our room to the rooms with the king size beds, probably another $150-$200 a day, not worth it to me...

The Majestic was recommended by an American executive stationed in Barcelona. It is elegant, perfectly situated, rooms are up to date and even the small standard one was adequate with a great bathroom, large screen TV with a huge channel lineup, good turn-down service, AC works great, Concierge was excellent, very attentive staff: friendly doorman, front desk personnel, bar staff, and even the bellman bend over backward for you. My understanding is that they are trying to become a five-star hotel. With the number of Americans we met while staying there the only thing I can recommend would be someone always on duty on the rooftop bar (which is not to be missed) who is fluent in English. The other thing is the grossly inflated breakfast price of 37 Euros. Really? You think any breakfast can be worth that much? That is one way to cut out the common American tourist as I didn't meet a single one who ate there, but as with anything, someone will pay the price (if they are on company money especially). I also lacked any success getting an email reply as I read about in other reviews. In this day of internet that just should be a priority to fix.
