This was such an excellent hotel! perfect location close to Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo and great restaurants...the beds / bedding feels like you are sleeping on a cloud, delicious breakfast, well designed and detailed, great courtyard and roof top (where we got to see La Merce fireworks), and the service (big thumbs up to Quentin and all the doormen!) is fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel and we will certainly come back again!

Details in other reviews are spot on regarding the quality and amenities in and the location of this five-star gem. I would add that the people that work here are the true highlights of this property. Everyone from the rooftop barkeep to the front desk/concierge staff is unbelievably friendly and accommodating. As an example, at the front desk they helped us buy, and then print, our tickets for Sagrada Familia and Park Guell which saved us untold amounts of time waiting in lines at those venues. While we visited other five-stars for drinks and they were nice, we would never consider staying anywhere other than Alma Barcelona.

Love love this hotel!

I’m in to tech so the first thing that totally impressed me is that you had finger-print access to your hotel room and the gym. Wow! In all the hotels I’ve stayed in worldwide, I’ve always gotten one sort of key or another. This time, you just have to make sure you have your index finger with you!

The decor is dark, moody yet stylish. Although the facade of the building was old, the interior had been completely gutted and rebuilt. Our room was very spacious and had an open-bathroom concept. Simple. Effective. Modern. The only thing that drives me crazy, which so many hotels are starting to do now in the name of eco conservation, is that they turn the aircon down in the middle of the night so that you always wake up hot and sweaty. Agh!

The restaurant on the ground floor is excellent. Had a couple wonderful meals there with amazing service. And then there is the rooftop bar. Great views - Sagrada Familia a short distance away, shingled rooftops spreading out in all direction, the sea in the distance. And a bartender who knew what he was doing.

There’s even a pool in the basement with a very small gym. Although they really didn’t have much equipment in there, it actually did the job.

This is a great base from where to explore this beautiful and incredibly vibrant city.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms facing the garden - less noisy than street

Fabulous hotel - loved the design and decor. Great customer service and excellent location. We loved the attention to detail. Unlike the large luxury 5-star hotels, the smaller size of this hotel allows it to feel both more quiet and more personal. They also have a lovely rooftop, where we enjoyed great city views and live music. Would not hesitate to come back.

Stunning hotel in perfect location within easy reach of all of Barcelona's attractions. Staff were extremely courteous and couldn't have been more helpful. We had a grand deluxe room on the 5th floor overlooking the courtyard and Casa Mila. Our room was so quiet and comfortable and the linen was so soft and silky, absolute bliss. Huge bathroom with walk in shower, loads of storage space, spotlessly clean everywhere. Great little touches of chocolates on the bedside when the room was turned down in the evening and a free mini bar. Plenty of electrical sockets but also built in iPhone and iPad chargers and also 2 x usb charging sockets. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel - it's perfect.
