“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This hotel is right in the centre of Barcelona and is perfectly located for people wanting to experience what the city offers. You are only a couple of minutes from the Metro and there are many restaurants close by. The hotel caters well for Australians with all the staff having some English speaking skills, enough to make themselves understood anyway.

Arrived to be told that the double room we had booked wasnt booked and that we had actually booked a twin room.. When i asked the receptionist to change she said that she would do her best as the room wasnt ready until 3pm. We decided to go out for lunch and a mooch around the local area.. WOW what a great location you are in the thick of it ! Fresh market just down the road was amazing, go and have a look around hen you are hungry : )
After a few drinks and about 5 kilo's of iberian ham we arrived back to be given our room 230. The twin bed's had been pushed together but bedding as two singles rather than a double duvet etc.. I assume the receptionist didnt try her best here..
The bar area in my opinion was under staffed in the evening had to wait on each evening to be served, to be honest that helped me in making my mind up whether to have a few early drinks in the bar or go out ...!
Front of house team on the door and reception was always very attentive, professional and happy..

Room Tip: The view from room 230 was poor - directly opposite another hotel ask for room over looking the ramb...

Talk about a great location. This was at the end of a long vacation and if I had it to do over I would stay here 3-4 days. It is in the heart of everything. Sights, Food, Entertainment...The hotel is clean and in a very safe area. Rooms are large and everything you need is right outside your hotel. What more can you ask for. The staff was super nice and I would tell my family to go their when in Barcelona ...

Le Meridien in Barcelona is a breath of fresh air. From the moment we arrived until we departed, the staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. Compared to my stays this trip at Starwood in Brussels and Le Meridien in Paris, this should be the standard and the other locations should send their staffs for training in Barcelona.

We arranged for a private transfer from the airport and it was perfect. The sign was displayed and it was a pleasant trip to the hotel.

The hotel is located on La Rambla, but the entrance is on a side street. This is a happening area so security is always present in the lobby and you need a room key to activate the elevator. The rooms have been recently re-done and they are lovely. The feel is young, modern and the comforts are all present. We had three great nights of sleep, the HVAC worked perfectly, the rooms were quiet and there were plenty of pillows.

The bath is a little small and you need to be careful operating the shower, it takes a little patience the first time, but once you master the overhead shower head it is a great shower. The toiletries are all high end and there was a small bottle of perfume to take with. Internet access was easy and efficient.

Breakfast, if not included, is Euro25. It includes a full buffet plus an omelet maker. We ordered a different omelet each day and they were perfectly made. Other options are pastries (croissant were delicious), cheeses, charcutterie, juices, fruits and a few cold cereals. Although not massive, the trays are filled regularly.

The Concierge was available to help with any request. We arranged tours, dinner reservations, airport transfers, wine and cheese suggestions. They were pleasant and efficient.

They will call for a cab and that is a good idea. We flagged one going by one of the nights and the charges were 50% higher than when they called for it. They keep tabs on the cars and the fees.

The only nick was the transfer they arranged to the airport on departure. We asked for a mini-van since we were 4 people and 5 pieces of luggage. They arranged for a 6 seat MB van on the inbound leg and we thought we would have a similar vehicle. They ordered a 16 passenger mini bus for the four of us. The driver did not speak English and dropped us at the wrong part of Terminal 1. It was a very long walk back to the correct area.

I would return to this Le Meridien when back in the area. They know exactly how to treat their guests.

With the bar/restaurant of Le Meridien facing the famous Ramblas pedestrian walk, I could not have asked for a more centrally located hotel. Just what I expected, sleek tasteful modern, yet keeping the surrounding culture to heart. My favorite part, three large glass vases filled with ice and glass pitchers with three choices of Sangria. What a way to say Welcome to Barcelona, Yum!
