I was there for a 3 nights stay. The hotel is brand new, opened in May and is made of 72 rooms. It is ideally located, very close to Paseo de Gracia, a beautiful avenue with a lot of stores.
The staff is extremely helpful and nice from the check in to the check out.
I tried the delux room, and is a very nice 40sqm room, with free wi-fi, free minibar (without alcoholic drinks), very nice bathroom with great roman shower.
The mattress is one of the most comfortable I slept on, while the pillows were all extremely soft and thin, that wasn't good for my neck.
There is a door-window in the room that you can open. The view was on an internal courtyard.
The wardrobe was just perfect and very spacious.
The only thing I didn't like was the breakfast, because if you ask the room service you can only get the standard continental breakfast.
I also tried the restaurant for dinner and the food was always very fine and very well cooked, although you don't have big choice in the menu. The service was very good at any time and the room service works 24h. The staff always fast, nice and helpful.
Overall I had a very good stay and it's an hotel I would definitely recommend. But if I have to compare it to another 5* like the Hotel Me, which is not far from the Alma, I would say it is probably a step below as far as food is concerned, particularly the breakfast.
The Spa was still under construction, so I couldn't try it.
