Alexandra Barcelona Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton
Ranked #145 of 519 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I've never used a Hilton I didn't like; however, this particular one in Barcelona really has to be one of my favorites. I fell in love with the city of Barcelona so this hotel was just icing on the cake. The location, couldn't have been better; and out of all the hotels we stayed in Portugal and Spain, this was the only one that greeted us with a nice warm, delicious cookie. The staff was wonderful, the room was quiet and comfortable; and the food at the breakfast buffet was excellent. At first I was not happy about the tour company using an American hotel in Barcelona, but definitely changed my mind once we were there.

Location was excellent and convenient, staff friendly, helpful, and multi-lingual. Rooms were well furnished with modern Euro-style fixtures and furniture (some of which were better looking than they were functional, IMO). Internet connections good with plenty of electrical outlets. Only complaint was about room noise/privacy - could hear routine activities (normal conversations, TV, bathroom/shower, etc) in rooms while walking down the hall; assumed the same was true for activities in my room. Fitness center was adequate.

To give this review some credibility, I have been a Hilton Honors Diamond member for almost 8 years. I used my HHonors points to reserve a room for 3 nights.

First the pros:
Location is perfectly central to just about anything in the city. 5 stars for this!
-Take the R2 Renfe line directly from the airport terminal 4 stops to Passeig de Gracia station and then it's a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Aprox 4 Euros.
-Walking distance to everything else you will want to see in the city, plus Passeig de Gracia is also a metro station that will take you just about anywhere. If you plan on taking the metro through the city, buy a 10 pass (T-10) for 10 Euros (1/2 the price of buying individual one ways). Multiple people can use the same Metro ticket as well if you are traveling together.
-Lots and lots of shopping and outdoor dining in the vicinity of the hotel.
-Free breakfast
-Free wifi, decent connection/speed

Cons:
-Staff is mediocre, neither horrible nor stellar.
-Being a loyal diamond member, I usually get a room upgrade in many other hotels. Here I did not.
-No executive lounge, and no drink coupons to compensate.
-Breakfast is less than average.
-VERY VERY VERY noisy hotel. Absolutely one of the worst Hilton properties I have stayed in if you are looking for quiet or if you are a light sleeper. The walls are absolutely paper thin and you can hear absolutely everything coming from the hallways, and from the other rooms above, below and beside you. Other guests stay out very late here in Barcelona, and maid service gets started very early. If you decide to stay here, I strongly advise you bring good ear plugs.

My overall opinion of this hotel is so-so. The location definitely outweighs the negatives here, so I would probably stay here again.

Dear prepare4landing,
Thank you for taking the time to write a Trip Advisor Review. Although I was glad to read that you enjoyed the location of our hotel I was extreamly shocked and disapointed to see the your comments about the staff. I apologize for any inconveniences you experienced regarding the upgrade, however if there is availability we always do our best to upgrade our Hhonors Diamond members, as this is an important issue for us. Thank you for your comments about the noise, for sure this will help us to improve our rooms.
Regards

Excellent location, beautiful hotel, great breakfast, nice bar, excellent staff...not sure what I else I can say...many attractions, nice restaurants close by. Easy access to the metro. The breakfast was exceptional - and I'd highly recommend adding it to your reservation.

Great location for a city break, handy to Metro and shopping. Great welcome and comfortable rooms. The beds and bedding are fantastic, best hotel sleeping ever! A lot of traffic noise but this is Barcelona and it is the same all over if you are in the city.

We stayed 3 nights at the Alexandra because of our Hilton Honors membership. We visited the hotel property earlier during our Barcelona visit while staying seaside at another property. The P. De Graecia/Mallorca area of town was very appealing with the upscale shopping and restaurants. The hotel was very comfortable and the rooms were above average. We recommend you request a room in the rear portion of the hotel facing the interior courtyard of the property. These rooms are much quieter.
The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us as best possible.
You cannot beat the location.

Room Tip: Choose room in rear facing the interior courtyard for quietness. Mallorca is not a main thoroughfar...

Stayed here while touring Barcelona and had an amazing time. The hotel is located within walking distance to major shopping and the metro! No complaints to be had about the hotel, it lived up to my expectations for the Hilton family hotels. The only weakness at this hotel is a lack of pool/spa/etc. They do have a sauna (but it is shared gender) and small weight/fitness room.
