“Quiet hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights before a Disney Cruise. The hotel is near subway stations and Starbucks. The mini bar is pre stocked with some cokes (if you need more I would visit one of the many local groceries nearby) but they are a little expensive.

The room was very quiet, hotel clean, elevator teeny, and breakfast pricey (if not included with your stay). I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel was awesome. It provided great service, clean rooms with a perfect location to see the sights. They had a room ready for us upon our arrival and provide us with information on how to best see the city. The rooms were clean and the breakfast buffet had a nice selection of food items.

Stayed here for 6 night on business. The room was quiet! It overlooked the street but with the window closed, the room was quiet. breakfast was not included and was pricey. Head to the bakery around the corner and get a variety of breakfast sandwich or pastry.

The location was great, just a pleasant walk up to the office. Easy to get to the old city and the sea. The surrounding shops were pricy but if you head to the main shopping district, the shopping was better.

My husband and I stayed in the Alexandra Barcelona just for a short overnight between flying elsewhere. We wish we could have stayed here longer! The front reception staff were very kind and helpful. The room was very chic and fancy. Breakfast was wonderful in the morning. We stayed here on points as it was quite expensive, but it seemed worth it from what we saw.

Our party of 4 stayed one night here before we were to embark on a cruise. To the hotel's credit, every single one of the staff we encountered were polite and professional. However, that doesn't make up for the issues we encountered. Like many others, we arrived on an overnight flight from the US and got to the hotel in the late morning to drop off our luggage. The issues: the queue for the front desk is disorganized. Three times during the stay I was queued up and others went around the line directly to the front desk. They were all interrupted by queue members drawing their attention to the line. The organization of the lobby exacerbates this issue. Second, the organization of the desk. The front desk staff do not have all that they need at their fingertips. EVERYONE that was attempting to check-in or drop their bags off were asked to wait while the front desk personnel disappeared into the back room for a minute or two. Why not have everything that is needed at the desk so the personnel can complete the transaction most effectively. Third, on the Saturday morning we arrived, they had 2 front desk personnel and one gentleman out front. This was not enough staff to serve both the new arrivals checking in their bags and the existing customers attempting to request cabs, get brunch recommendations, etc. An additional staff member positioned in the lobby to assist in this matter would improve the situation. Last, while we were provided keys to our first room by 2pm as indicated, I had to go downstairs at 4pm to ask for my other room keys....which didn't work! Yet another queuing.... The previously mentioned card in the reader to keep the lights & a/c working is the strangest thing I've seen, and I've traveled quite a bit in Europe before. I cannot recommend this hotel due to the disorganization, the lack of soundproofing, and the glitches mentioned above.

Here at the DoubleTree, we pride ourselves on the high standards of service that we provide, which our guests enjoy and have come to expect from our Brand. It is therefore very disappointing to see that we have let ourselves down on this occasion, and on behalf of the Hotel I offer my most sincere apologies for any disappointment.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back some time in the future.

Currently staying at this hotel. Room is spacious and plenty of room for my 7 yr old to sleep on the pull out couch without the room feeling cramped. Very Clean. Balcony is perfect for working with a great view. Breakfast is just enough to start the day. Great location, near plenty of restaurants and shops and the metro stops. No complaints.

Room Tip: loved the 7th floor!
