“Great hotel”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great hotel, friendly staff, loved the fingerprint key! Perfectly situated.The lack of a roof top pool might be picky but it would improve the overall experience even more. The breakfast charge is high and I can´t see why it isn't complimentary at ***** hotels.

Really enjoyed our 3-night stay, wished it was longer. Wonderful staff were friendly and very helpful. Fabulous bed, so comfortable. It was very quiet (our room was overlooking the garden), amazing when you step onto the street outside, it's so busy after the peaceful atmosphere inside the hotel. Good food and wine. Complimentary water, beer and juices in the room mini-bar, restocked daily. The hotel was busy so we were not able to extend our stay. Our flight was late afternoon and we were able to use the spa for a shower before we left.

We stumbled across the Alma initially last year for dinner while staying in Barcelona and decided to look after a room after a delicious dinner. We came back a year later for a long weekend and have thoroughly enjoyed the Alma as a hotel.
Situated just off the Passeig de Gracia it is in the centre of Barcelona, near Las Ramblas, and in a brilliant spot for shoppers! It is also an easy enough walk down to the sea.
All the staff have been beyond helpful and any little niggles we had were smoothed over instantly.
The dim lighting and dark walls make for a very calm atmosphere and lovely quiet experience, along with possibly the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced.
The Alma is so worth staying at and puts the typically americanised luxury hotels to shame. Even if you don't stay at the Alma, DO eat dinner at the restaurant, very respectable prices for the quality of the food.

The rooftop terrace/bar is unmissable; spend a lazy summer evening drinking cocktails while looking out over the view to Barcelona's skyline.

The Alma Hotel is very stylish with the latest technology in many areas: i.e finger print access to rooms - there are also some unusual design aspects such as limited separation between bathroom and bedroom area for the non-suite rooms at the rear but if you book a room at the rear of the hotel it will be very quiet which is quite a find in this all action, hustle, bustle City. The front desk staff are excellent and the location for visiting the many sights in Barcelona is very good

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear for quiet and no traffic noise

Great place, great location and the most... great service.

I recommend this hotel highly, particularly for romantic trips rather than for family trips.

The people that work in this place are just super helpful and nice!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street perhaps better

Perfect location - great part of the city and central to lots of attractions.

Hotel is very modern, clean and comfortable. I loved the fingerprint scanners instead of a room key!

Very peaceful and relaxing outdoor hidden garden area.

Would highly recommend!
