I stayed at this hotel about 4 years ago and really loved it, so on our return to Barcelona I was excited to return to the Murmuri. Unfortunately our experience wasn't quite as positive this time but overall it still is a very good choice. The positives: as many people have mentioned, it has an unbeatable location, on a nice street close to everything. It also has a very stylish and modern decor, and helpful front desk staff. I enjoyed their breakfast buffet. Negatives: it really irritates me now when a hotel at this price point doesn't provide free wifi access (or even LAN cable access in the rooms). Come on guys, it is 2012 not 1999. We all have laptops/iPads/etc and we need to use them. You can either pay the ransom (15 euros per day or something) or use their antiquated desktop computers on the first floor (ask at the front desk for a sign in key every time you want to use it). The other problem was noise. Doors closing, people walking around in the room above you at all hours of the night. Nevertheless, in spite of these relatively minor irritants we enjoyed our stay overall.

First of all I would like to thank you for choosing us again for your stay in Barcelona.
We would like to thank you for your inputs on various things to improve at Murmuri, specially the internet connexion.
Please kindly accept our most sincere apologies for the inconvenience with the WIFI connection; we are working on having free Wi-Fi access throughout the entire property.
As far as noises goes, we are sorry to hear that the room above was being noisy at night and we would like to encourage you to tell us immediately if it ever happens again as had the front desk been advised about it, we would have taken measures immediately.
Having this said, we hope you choose Murmuri for your next trip while in the city!
