We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights before going on a cruise. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is not in the mainstream tourist area but is within walking distance to many of the main attractions. The room was small by U.S. standards but was clean and worked well. The view was to the rear of the building and was to a number of residential buildings. The hotel has a very modern feel. We arrived after flying on a Miami to Barcelona red eye. We were welcomed and staff went out of their way to arrange for our room before normal check in. We also did the Barcelona Tour Bus, which the hotel arranged a discount for. It was an excellent way to see the city in a short period of time and hit all the major attractions. We did not eat at the hotel other than breakfast, which was included. Breakfast was buffet style and OK, not great. The restaurant recommendations for restaurants, which included a tapas and local seafood restaurant were very good. The bar staff was also very friendly. This being our first trip to Barcelona we had some concern prior to arriving with language barrier. This was not the case as the majority of the staff could converse in english. When we return to Barcelona we would definitely stay at the Alexandra.
