The hotel is beautiful and the room spacious. Location is great. Most impressive is the quality of service that made our stay a most pleasant one.

A truly fabulous hotel. The location is perfect, and the staff is gracious and extremely helpful from the moment you arrive. Miguel at the front desk was a treasure thoughout our visit. His insight, suggestions for meals, activities, transit and shopping were consistently spot on. You can get most anywhere in Barcelona in 10-15 minutes from here in complete safety. The rooms are great, very comfortable beds, turn down service nightly and spotless throughout. There is a large, flat-screen TV, but I would have liked a couple of additional channels in English. We also had to ask for some more lighting, which was supplied in 5 minutes. The bathroom is huge (2 sinks, which we love, and the shower was one of the nicest we have found anywhere). My only disappointment was that the fitness room was under construction and not available. However, with all that there is to do in Barcelona, I am not quite sure we would have had time to use it. This is a great hotel. They have a breakfast area and a patio restaurant also. I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. Go and enjoy!

Room Tip: Courtyard view is great, quiet and you can open e window! The higher the floor the more of La Pedre...

We have just returned from three nights at this marvelous hotel. It is in a fantastic location, within walking distance of most of Barcelona's attractions and just off the city's prime shopping street. The whole building has been decorated in a very upmarket "boutique" style. Even the lift appeared to be leather-lined. Our room (a 50m2 suite) was very impressive at first glance. However, after a while it did feel a little like a very luxurious prison cell - blank walls, no pictures, locked windows. Perhaps the interior designer had taken things a little too far in their minimalism. And maybe the designer should have stayed a few nights in their own creation. Exactly where do you hang your coats? And all your wet towels? However, the stand- out feature of this hotel is the staff. They were all incredibly friendly, offering suggestions and advice which really helped us get the most out of our stay - even booking tickets for the attractions for us and printing out passes to help us skip the queues. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Tip for UK tea-addicts - take your travel kettle.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front (mainly suites) have a view of the street but the windows are locked. We did get...

This is a beatiful old building with a very modern interior in a great central location. The hotel is well decorated and maintained including the rooms which are spacious and very quiet. The superior rooms have great bathrooms with large walk in showers plus a bath (and Bulgari toiletries). But the real thing that set this hotel apart for me was the amazing service. When i arrived, I was too early to check in but they took my bags, texted me when the rooms were ready and had delivered the bags to my room. The managed to get us into a very popular restaurant at the lst minute. They also booked trips for us and gave recommendations on places to see. Nothing was too much trouble and they explained how to get there. Whenever you walked into the hotel they greeted you by name. And when i asked them to print my boarding pass it was delivered to my room in less than 5 minutes. I completely fell in love with this hotel - they make you feel very welcome and at home.

A stunning hotel in a great location. First class. Staff was incredible - polite, friendly and helpful - all with a great sense of humor. The design of the hotel was spectacular - great dining room and beautiful private courtyard patio. The rooms were superb. Furnished for comfort yet elegant and sleek. It was hard to leave the room as it was so comfortable! I did ask for a quite room and our room overlooking the courtyard was totally quiet. This hotel was the highlilght of our trip to Spain. I will go back!

There are not enough superlatives to describe our stay at Alma Barcelona.
The location cannot be beat, right off the most upscale street in Barcelona.
The decor is absolutely gorgeous from the lobby to the hallways to the rooms. The beds are probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in.
The staff are amongst the friendliest, most accomodating people with no request ever denied. They actually go out of their way to do more than you ask them (each and every one of them).
We stayed for 4 days and were actually sorry to leave.
