We spent a delightful six nights at Le Meridien, Barcelona taking excursions and getting to know the city. The staff was marvelous and helped to enhance our stay. The Concierge, Ricardo, answered many to our questions via email and then booked the exact tours that we wanted. Andre at the front desk was wonderfully helpful and he and Salvador saw to it that we had a great room for our week in Spain. When I had trouble printing in the Business Office, Victor was able to correct the problem very quickly and a young lady from Germany, Paula, who worked the night shift at the desk was always pleasant to speak with and a very cheerful person.
The location of the hotel allowed us to take breakfast at La Boqueria market, if we wished, and then board the Yellow Line Metro in La Rambla, and be off for a day of sight-seeing. Ricardo recommended that we buy a T-10 ticket for both buses and the Metro and we strongly concur.
Our room, 344, was very spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. The chocolates on the pillows each night was a nice treat and the well lit, granite bathroom was a delight.
We will certainly stay there again. You cannot beat the location and the service.

Room Tip: La Rambla is a sight seeing must, but a bit noisy. Chose a room overlooking the side street instead...

If you are looking for a location this is the one for sure in Rambla Street ... room size is ok, the furniture is a bit old., Bathroom is really nice .. breakfast is really nice as well i think the high price is only for the location.

We stayed there 5 nights here and the overall was slightly below average for what you pay for. Some comments below.

Pro: Location was excellent.

Cons:
* the bed was so soft (no box at the bottom - just a mattress) we didn't sleep that well, not sure if this is a Spain thing
* the front desk was polite but doesn't seem sincere
* the restaurant advertise 10% off for SPG member so we charged it to our hotel room but they didn't apply it off when we checked out - false advertising
* the rooms were not very clean - basics were done but still dusty & hair on the floor
* the hotel doesn't upgrade you automatically, you have to ask for it
* when you choose green, they don't even come to empty your trash can
* we had 4 green nights cards but they only credit us for 3 nights
* extremely noisy when the staff starts cleaning around 8 am and slamming doors non-stop that you cannot sleep in

We stayed at Le Meridien in Paris and surprisingly found the hotel and staff above average so we expected the one in Spain to be better because it cost more than Paris. Was very disappointed.

For the price you pay, better off using another hotel or stay here for the location.

Stayed here for 3 nts w my hubby and 2 teenagers. Had arranged for airport transfer in advance and had email confirmation. Arrived at airport and no one was there. 3 calls later to hotel (transferred all around and eventually was hung up on) and the concierge sd "Sorry, we can't come and get you. Just take a cab." Arrived at hotel and questioned concierge and got zero answers except "Well, you are here now." I'm a longtime SPG member and had also requested that the kids' room be next to ours--not even connecting, just close by. At check-in, front desk staff sd that they could not accommodate my request (made months in advance) to have our kids (age 13 & 15) on our floor--they literally were on an entirely different floor. No attempt was made to remedy this for all 3 nts of our stay. Rooms themselves were spacious and clean. Bathrooms were enormous by European standards. We had booked deluxe rooms that faced Las Ramblas--not the best decision as the street is LOUD at all hours of the night (think rowdy drunk people, police sirens, etc.). Breakfast in hotel restaurant was fantastic and staff was super accommodating to my daughter's food allergies. Ended up in hotel bar at the end of every evening for some delicious sangria--nice setting, not seedy. Fantastic location overall despite noise. Received great restaurant recommendations from concierge staff--literally loved every place they sent us. At the end of our stay, we asked concierge to arrange ride back to the airport for us--upon hearing about our arrival debacle, he comped our ride back to the airport. Everyone makes mistakes, it's how you handle them that's important--Bruno the concierge did exactly that by addressing the mistakes made upon our arrival. Overall, great hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed with the location and the staff was fantastic. Everyone makes you very welcome and are responsive to your requests. The 'feel' there is very good. Rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom and amenities were top notch. I would stay there again!

I stayed here 3 nights while on a business trip.

Pros: Central location - on Ramblas where all the tourists hang out. Hence, you are close to many restaurants, shops and cool cafe bars. Right next to the hotel is grocery store (I know this is a big + for all those who practically live out of hotels and prefer to go in and get some fruits and vegetables).
Staff are very friendly and helpful. They all speak English really well. As I was entering for the first time, a few concierges stood outside and offered to carry my luggage for me. Was upgraded to a suit which was very big and nice. half an hour after walking into my room, they brought me some chocolate and a small bottle of cologne. Bathroom was modern, very clean. There is a walk-in shower, and a bathtub next to it. The water pressure was very good!
Bedroom was large, very good bed, with a nice work station. The living room is designed in an oval shape, looking right at Ranblas Street. There were 3 TVs, one in bedroom, living room and bathroom. There were some English channel, not many ... but more than in some of the other hotels I've been in world-wide. Lots of music-only channels on there as well.
Breakfast was your typical breakfast ... but maybe with a few more options. Restaurant staff were extremely nice!

Cons: The iron board in the bedroom was very small. It is fixed to the wall, so it was very hard to work around it. I had a hard time ironing my shirt. Since the hotel is right on Ramblas Street ... it is always very busy there. I happened to be there one night while there were some demonstrations going on. off course, they took place on Ramblas and about 3000+ demonstrators could be heard very loudly from 9pm to 10pm. On the way out, there were no concierges to help me find a taxi ... but I found out that this was not an issue as there were many of them strolling around waiting for tourists to jump in.

Overall: A medium size, coazy hotel. It was not a typical business hotel. It is definitely tailored towards tourists .... but I certainly did not mind this. I was impressed!
