“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Our stay at the Alma has been exceptionally good. Our suite is much larger than you ever find in a European city center, and full of thoughtfully sized cupboards and spaces for everything. The bathroom and shower are hypermodern and luxurious. The staff is friendly and helpful and the indoor pool is surprisingly useful and comforting for its size. We loved every detail from the bedside chocolates to the fingerprint scanner. The location is right in the middle of the ruckus at passaeig de garcia yet the suite is wonderfully quiet. Well done!

Room Tip: Take the Executive Suite, it's lovely.

We spent 3 nights at the Alma two weeks ago and it totally lived up to our expectations. Well situated to see many of the sights and in a very nice part of the city, the Alma is a cool, elegant but ultra- comfortable hotel with a minimalistic look and feel - very contemporary Barcelona. The staff are professional , friendly and helpful and our room was large, quiet and airy with a big comfortable bed, overlooking a pleasant courtyard and garden. The bathroom was enormous and well epuipped. The one breakfast we ate at the hotel was delicious and the service was attentive. If you want an upmarket, non touristy, luxury hotel the Alma will delight you.

Room Tip: Any room that faces the inner courtyard will be airy and light during the day and quiet and dark at...

Wonderful hotel. Had a room with view of the Casa Mila's rooftop which was spectacular. Location was excellent and we could walk to every major attraction. Room was elegant and clean, lobby was open spaced which we appreciated.

Outstanding hotel. Very clean and modern. Location excellent. We stayed there with our older parents and the location was very easy

Rooftop desk was nice at night.

Breakfast a bit pricey but Starbucks is just 1.5 blocks away

Room Tip: Nice to be near elevators

A sleek and sophisticated hotel situated in a leafy upmarket part of Barcelona. Great location for sight seeing, the Sagrada Familia is a 20 minute walk away, Gaudi's La Pedrera, is on the next block, Casa Batllo is about 5 minutes away and it is around a 10 - 15 minute walk to the Placa de Catalunya and La Rambla.
The service provided by the black uniformed staff was impeccable, I enjoyed the glass of cava when checking in! One of the staff gave us some excellent restaurant suggestions. The mini bar was complementary, it was stocked with plenty of water, juice, soft drink and a couple of beers.
If you are not travelling with your significant other please note that there is no door to the bathroom, which is more like a wet room as there is no door to the shower.
