We rang in the New Year at Hotel Alma, and it was perfect. The staff are all customer service oriented. They go out of your way to accommodate your requests and deliver every time. The hotel is located off of Passieg de Gracia - i.e. you're in the heart of the city. The hotel is in between the Diagonal and Passieg de Gracia metro stops with the Diagonal being a block closer to the hotel. There is a McDonald's and Starbucks nearby as well as several local cafes and tapas bars. The concierge helped us with restaurant reservations - especially trying to secure last minute New Year's Eve reservations - but they delivered on that score as well.
As far as the actual room accommodations go, it was comparable to a 4*-5* American hotel. Clean, modern, new - very comfortable queen size bed, complimentary mini bar that got fully replenished every day, daily turndown service in addition to housekeeping.
We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat on our next visit to Barcelona.

Simply the Best.
We stayed there for new years. We were 5 Rooms and we did not know anything about the hotel except the reviews. We followed our gut feeling and reviews and it was amazing. I Love the hotel and the staff was great. The rooms were amazing, and the location as well. Again, all i will say is simply the Best.

Great Job.

We stayed over New Year - fantastic hotel! Great central location just off Passieg de Gracia. Check in was prompt, staff were knowledgable and couldn't do more for you. The room was big and stylish with complimentary mini-bar and impeccible cleanliness. The spa was small and there were only two loungers but great for a dip after a long day sightseeing. The check-in/concierge staff knew the local area inside out so be sure to ask them for restaurant and bar options as they will give you good advice! In all, one of the best hotels I have stayed in worldwide. We will return to Barcelona in the near furture and when we do we will stay at the Alma because I don't think there is any way it could be topped!

We stayed at the Alma for just one night before flying back to the UK after 2 weeks in the Emporda region. The staff on main reception were both welcoming and very imformative with regards to restaurants and made a few bookings for us. Due to our short stay we had time for 2 lunches and one dinner - all of which we enjoyed. Great tapas for lunch and seafood for dinner! The room was spotlessly clean and had a view into the gardens at the back of the hotel, so lovely and quiet. Comfortable bed, great bathroom and very good location. We visited Casa Batllo - one of the Gaudi properties which was amazing. We loved Barcelona and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Just before New Year we spent 4 nights in this beautiful hotel which deserves the best reviews. The front staff who we saw most deserves a very big "thank you". I have rarely experienced a stay in a hotel where the staff is so professional, so kind and so smiling at any time of the day. We really felt like home and were always greeted no matter what time of the day/night and how many times we left or came back to the hotel. (Dear Staff, it is thanks to your excellent work that your hotel will not only reach the top ranks of Tripadvisor but also stay at the top). The hotel is contemporary and very quiet which is must for us. I loved using my fingerprint to open our room door. This is such a clever idea and it so convenient not to carry out a key or a card. Our room was very spacious and simply decorated but with much taste. Our bathroom was big but did not have a door which means that you do not have much intimacy, but the goods news is that we had a separate toilet which is very unsual in a hotel room and again a bright idea. The hotel location is perfect for shopping, sightseeing, going out to restaurants, etc. We took a bus shuttle from Barcelona airport to Plaça Catalunya which costs 10 Euros for a return ticket. It is a 15 min. walk to the hotel, but there also plenty of taxis waiting at Plaça Catalunya if you do not feel like walking and/or if you are travelling with heavy luggages. We will definitely stay in our Spanish home next time we visit Barcelona. Viva Alma, via Espana!!!

we stayed as a couple for 4 days and enjoyed it very much. The serenity of this place and the kindness of the personal was extraordinary. We will definitely return to the hotel even if there is nothing else to do in Barcelona. I hope that this place stays as cool as it is now.
