“Wonderful!!!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

We came to the Alma hotel based on Tripadvisor and it was better than we could imagine. Stunning rooms, prime location, helpful staff and the best vacation possible.
Both the executive suite and the regular room were wonderful, but no doubt that if you have the option take the executive suite...

Alma Hotel is in a fabulous location with local tapas bars and a great café just around the corner. The room is beautifully furnished and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The oasis style courtyard and bar area is a great place to unwind after the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. If I was to make any suggestion at all and only a suggestion not a criticism it would be to have the option all year around for a lower air-conditioning room temperature. A minimum available of 21C when it is 20C plus outside and still winter duvet's on make for a restless night. Recommend to anyone but especially to couples.

Immaculate service from all the team, particularly on the front desk, (couple of really good restaurant recommendations) Room on the garden side was peaceful and quiet, with a beautifully comfortable bed, and a great bathroom. Hotel was centrally located and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

There aren't enough words to adequately describe the incredibly personal and attentive service we experienced from the staff at the Alma. Marco, Xavier and a host of others, whose names we didn't capture, were amazing. The Alma is a modern hotel in a great location with one significant shortcoming. The sleeping area is separated from the shower area by a folding screen. No doors. There are moments when a little privacy would be welcome.

A few enhancements we would recommend are: 1) privacy doors in the bath area 2) a dressing mirror in the main sleeping area 3) a clothing hook in the toilet room 4) a tad more lighting at the check in desk 5) a coffee/tea maker in the room 6) a cover sheet on the bed so one can remove the down comforter if desired.

Give us a door and we would return on our next visit to Barcelona. If the absence of a door doesn't bother you then by all means stay at the Alma.

I stayed at this hotel with my 16 year old son and we were very happy there. Wonderfully modern but understated. Great attention to detail. The staff were so professional, friendly and helpful. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The food is as good as it gets. While the breakfast is expensive it was delicious and I racked up my bill by eating there every morning. A wonderful table of pastries, a table of charcuterie and cheese and bread and a table of fruit, juices and smoothies. A warm breakfast of eggs of your choice is available. We had room service for dinner a few times because I couldn't drag my son out again and the food was top notch. The location is ideal. I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again!
