If you are looking for a 5 star hotel in Barcelona - you will not be disappointed! The location is great. We stayed one night at the hotel from Saturday to Sunday. Unfortunately we did not have time to try the indoor swimming pool.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Alma. Great location, staff were helpful and knowledgable, and room was a good size, comfortable and had lots of space to put suitcases. Didn't have breakfast at hotel but a late night meal was well prepared. Will definitely return.

Lovely hotel in the centre of Barcelona. Check in included a glass of bubbly and, as first timers to the city, a brief overview of our surroundings. Room was gorgeous - very modern at the back of the hotel looking out on to the garden restaurant. Spotlessly clean, and very quiet given the location. Although small, the gym and pool compliments the room decor in its minimal appearance - perfectly adequate for a long weekend away. The hotel is in a great location - situated around the corner from Casa Mila, 15 mins walk from the Sagrada Familia, and near to a couple of Metro stops too. We didn't eat at the hotel - plenty of little cafés round about for breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay here.

All the class of a 5 * Plus luxury Hotel with a modern contemporary arty feel and subtle lighting throughout to enhance relaxation. The Hotel is fantastically located in 5th Avenue surrounded by high end shops and within easy reach of all the city’s main attractions, metro stops etc without being amidst the hustle and bustle. Sacrada Familia is within walking distance for the reasonably fit, Try to pre book Tickets if possible. Approx. 10 euro cab ride to Port Olympic for Bars, Clubs & Beach etc. Approx. 25 min from the Airport
All the Hotel staff were superb, unlike other experiences of previous staff of hotels of the same rating, they were unpretentious yet extremely professional and attentive with excellent customer service skills. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived even though it was 1am they treated us as special guests until the second we left, should Pablo the evening concierge or Marcos the day concierge be on duty while you are there you will have no trouble finding what you need as they have the experience & knowledge of Barcelona to tailor make recommendations for the perfect places to suit your situation. Place your trust in their recommendations and you won’t go far wrong.
Lovely Cafés, bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance, we particularly liked Café Emma for Breakfast and just through the alley opposite the hotel is a French bar located in a cella (Les Gens Que J’aime) which has a lovely cosy relaxed feel and is open until 3am. Perfect for that late wind down drink. The area had a safe feel about it.
We stayed in room 605/607 with friends which was on the top floor. Fingerprint door entry or old fashioned key if required. overlooking the gardens and a view of Gaudis Casa Mila in the distance. Great oversize shower, Large Tv etc… The Bed & bedding was all of high quality and combined with the window shutters that block out all the light & sound you could end up spending most of your stay sleeping.
The Spa is small but functional, Indoor Pool, Steam room & sauna. Complimentary robes and slippers provided for guests and the lift takes you directly. Nice to relax after seeing the sights.
We would definitely seek to stay in this Hotel again.

Book this Hotel for a holiday to remember!

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the Alma and have to say it's even better than the reviews we read. Everything from our welcome to the checkout was top class, the "front of house" service stood out particularly. All aspects of the room were very comfortable and the bar service very friendly. We didn't actually eat at the hotel as too many other attractions in the city, but will do next time we stay at the Alma. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Garden view, fourth floor or above has a view of La Pedrera chimneys.

Alma Barcelona is a lovely hotel in a great location within this beautiful city. Located just a block from the Casa Mila and just off the Passeig de Gracia with a fantastic range of Designer stores leading down to the Placa Catalunya with Las Ramblas and the Gothic quarter beyond.
The hotel staff were attentive without being 'fussy' and helpful with any questions or requests. From the ease of checking-in (with the time taken to provide the city map and highlight places of interest in relation to the location of the hotel) to the ease of checking out, this was a really relaxing stay.
The bedrooms are beautifully decorated in a modern minimalist style. Our room on the fifth floor looked out towards the towers of the Casa Mila and over the Hotel garden. The garden is a green oasis of calm with plenty of comfy sofas and chairs and despite the hotel being on a busy street, the traffic noise could not be heard. And after a busy day pounding the streets, it was great to be able to relax in the garden before returning to the city for tapas or dinner. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the bedrooms but there are so many coffee shops close by that it wasn't a problem.
