Really beautiful 1st class accommodation set in a sleek modern style. upgraded to executive room and totally worth it! small balcony really gave you a feeling of being in center of city. The location was really perfect- quite yet close to everything. The staff was so very helpful friendly and always willing to help. And the BED the BED - we called the magic bed because it was so comfortable we just fell into a deep sleep and woke up so happy rested and refreshed..love this place!!

Room Tip: upgrade to executive room--worth it!!

Thtis is a very nice hotel, in a great location, right off the Passeig de Gracia. We stayed in the Executive Suite, very roomy and fairly priced at 305 euro per night. This is a large room, with a large bathroom, the shower is fantastic, 2 tv's, plenty of cable channels, a few english speaking channels. The bed was big and quite comfortable. The staff are fantastic, very helpful, and all speak excellent english. I would definitely stay here again. Also, the pictures on their website quite accurately depict the rooms, which is a little unusual, so what you see is actually what you get. I don't think you would need to book the much more expensive suite, as this room is large enough for 2 comfortably.

Room Tip: Choose the Executive suite, ask for a corner room,best value in the house

Just back from 10 days at the hotel Alma. Family of 4 (2 teenagers)
The hotel is simply a world class boutique hotel. Top service, clean, comfortable. Perfectly situated. The only negative is that it does not have training equipment(bicycle, treadmill) just weird elastics and a few weights. Just does not make sense compare to the rest of the hotel

The Alma presents with quietly, understated opulence. The check-in area consists of two desks with a love seat in front. The staff offer you cava or water as you complete the check-in process. You are offered the use of a room key or the new finger-print access technology. The lobby bar/restaurant area are also in muted colors and there is a lovely outdoor dining area as well.The entire hotel seems muted due to the colors, or lack thereof, providing a very calming experience. Our room was a standard room that was quite large. There is a separate room for the toilet which was approximately 35 sq.feet! Nothing else in it. The shower and dual sinks were in another room. There was plenty of shelf space and hangers, robes, etc. There were sliding frames that served as blinds to darken the room which were very effective. The only negative was in the shower area. Basically there are two rain-type shower heads and two hand-helds in an area that has no glass enclosure, only a regulation size bath mat. The water sprays everywhere and consequently the floor is quite slippery and you have to use towels to sop up everything before you risk falling. We found the location to be excellent - just off the Passig Gracia and another block from the Rambla Catalunya. So it is quiet but close to all the shops and great restaurants, cafes, etc. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Sagreda Familia and 10 minutes down to the hustle and bustle of the Ramblas. All in all a great place to stay.

My husband and I stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful, particularly if you love modern, minimal design. It's just off the Passeig de Gracia, one of the main avenues in Barcelona with lots of shopping and restaurants and just a couple blocks from the Passeig de Gracia metro station which makes it super easy to get to from the airport. The staff is wonderful - they upgraded our room and treated us to a plate of jamon iberico upon our arrival. We only wish we had decided to stay longer to enjoy the spa too!

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in terms of service especially from the front desk people. In a way they helped make our family holiday in Barcelona a success. The junior suite was a bit dark but nevertheless very comfortable. The location is ideal too for shopping and eating out. Strongly recommend as it is value for money.
