“Fabulous Location to Enjoy Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We spent five nights at the Murmuri and enjoyed the atmosphere and helpful staff (Francesco at the front desk is amazing!). We splurged and got the room with a full terrace and it was terrific for enjoying the sunshine. A few recommendations:
The sister hotel (the Majestic) has a fitness club, which you can use as a Murmuri guest. They also have a spa (okay treatments) that has a FABULOUS view over the city. It's a must to visit the terrace bar there (a bonus--you can charge everything back to your room at the Murmuri).
Also the Passage de la Concepcion, which is right next to the hotel is hiding some restaurant gems. In particular, El Japones is worth visiting with the best sushi and tempura in Barcelona!
The hotel restaurant and room service are also quite good. Tip: skip breakfast in the hotel and try anyone of the many bakeries/coffee shops near the hotel. There are plenty to choose from, including a SB located on the other side of the Passage de la C. There's also a smoothie place (Smudy's), which is great for a quick pick me up between the hotel and Avenue Diagonal if you just want something fast and easy.

Room Tip: If you can, the room with the full terrace is a real treat!

I booked a stay last week in a one bedroom apartment at Murmuri. While I can see the advantage if you need a kitchen, I didn't like the location very much. It is down the street and around a corner and not attached to the hotel itself. There was no bathtub. After 2 nights there, I asked to be switched to the hotel and found it much nicer. The rooms were lovely and the amenities very nice. The staff is, for the most part, very helpful. I would stay again.

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying with us in the Murmuri Hotel and for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor. Our residences are a great option for those who are planning in staying for a long time with us as they can feel like at home: guest can enjoy all the facilities and services that our fully furnished and equipped residences offer. However, we were able to give you an alternative as you were offered to move to one of our hotel rooms and that your stay in there was splendid.

Once again thank you and we look forward to welcome you again at Murmuri soon.

Sincerely,

General Manager

I stayed in this hotel for two nights towards the end of April 1012 whilst on business.
The room was a "privilage" double room which is slighty more expensive than the
normal (slightly bigger and with the possibility of a terrace).
The room was perfect in every way; stylish, spotless, quiet etc. (the iPod dock
is a nice touch) and staff could not have been more helpful.
I managed to get a terrace but since it was raining a good part of the time
I didn't get the chance to use it. It was fine but you would have to be quite
tall to see properly over the walls - the view was not really good but that
was really the "luck of the draw".
Breakfast was separate and expensive for what it was (11 euros) - buffet style
but not a huge choice on offer but this seems to be the way for other hotels in Barcelona
I have stayed in.
Wi-Fi Internet access is free in the lounge and free for one hour in the second floor lobby
(although since I used the service in the room so I can't vouch for this).
Wi-Fi in the room is only worth it for 24 hrs (11 euros) and I suggest to take a network
cable and plug it in , rather than depend on the wireless.
Location is excellent and Metro is 5 mins walk away although as warned everywhere
hang onto your valuables.

Stayed in Hotel Murmuri Barcelona for a long weekend. Great little hotel and a fantastic location
for the tourist bus, shops. Hotel has a really sophisticated feel. Really nice room with a small terrace. Staff very helpful. A perfect place for a short city break.

Room Tip: had a room on the fifth floor - nice location. View interesting not scenic.

We stayed at hotel Murmuri for four nights in mid January. We booked a Privilege Double room and requested that our room have a balcony overlooking the Rambla de Catalunya. We were very pleased with the room we were given. It was spacious, nicely decorated and had a nice little balcony. The staff at the hotel were very good. We had some great tapas and cocktails in the bar happily served by Nick, who was very helpful in what to see and where to go for nice food, so many thanks to him. Overall we were pleased with all aspects of hotel MurMuri. It is sure to please those who enjoy the boutique hotel experience.
