“Good hotel for business meetings”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Although a little outside the city centre (20 mins by metro) this hotel offers good business meeting rooms, great club rooms and friendly helpful staff. Near to a couple of great tapas restaurants and the metro station, the hotel catered for the needs of a group of 40 individuals well - would recommend it.

This is a good hotel perfectly located near camp nou where you visit the outstanding barcelona stadium and at 2 minutes walk to nearest metro. At the same time you can have a quite night away of all town noise. Food is good also. This is highly recommended in barca

The hotel was gorgeous and the rooms were spacious. The service was great as well and the staff was willing to help me with transportation queries. The hotel is great for soccer fans as the Barcelona FC is right behind the area, about 5 minutes walk. We had to walk quite a bit to the shopping district and the Sagrada familia but there are plenty of buses and trams which could bring you nearer to these places. Overall, a great experience in a great hotel.

Nice hotel, friendly staff.

Unfortunately I couldn't sleep as my room was next to the lifts. Not the best thing when you are travelling for business and have to get up early in the morning.

Breakfast is decent but lack of cosyness: it is served in the basement and you will have share the space with 100's of other guests, with tables lining up in the empty, high-ceiling space...

Room Tip: avoid rooms next to lifts

Very grand , as the name suggests.

Our room was comfortable , clean and well equipped.

The staff were excellent from the car valet service , the reception staff to the cleaning staff. Deserving special mention is Pedro the concierge. Nothing was too difficult and he certainly rose to the many requests we made , always patient , interested and helpful. A real asset to his employer.

We found the hotel well positioned and close to very efficient and inexpensive public transport.

On the negative side , it needs some minor maintenance work. There were many business conferences underway over the 3 days we were there and the hotel was nearly full. This led to some congestion with the lifts and breakfast was served in a large conference room/ballroom in the basement with 100's of conference attendees. It was like a boarding school!!

Surely non conference guests could have been served in their usual breakfast facility , a smart ground floor restaurant?

That being said , should we ever revisit Barcelona , we would stay at the Princess Sofia again.

We as a party of four adults and two children nine and eleven years old,chose the Hotel because of the location being near to the Barcelona football stadium and a 5star rating.We were visiting Barcelona for only the second time,the first time was on a Cruise with Royal Caribean,where we spent just a day on a Tour.We said at the time we should come back as the City looked beautiful.On arrival to the Princess Sofia we were welcomed by the front of house staff who were very pleasant.we booked in and were shown to our rooms.With there being two family's the Hotel had given us adjoining rooms,which was very thoughtful.The interia of the rooms were what you would expect from a 5star hotel,very nice.we ate in the Hotel which was of a very high standard.With there being two boys we All made use of the pool and sun terrace.The staff throughout were very pleasant and professional.We would use this Hotel again and recommend it.The tour buses and Metro are 5 minutes away.
