“Princess BARCELONA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

We spent four nights here from 9-13th June 2012. The Hotel is very nice and the breakfast superb. We had asparagus, egg, quiche flans, bacon, salami, cheese, watermelon, pineapple, apricots and anything else you can think of, they had it. Superb.
Only problem is the coffee was from a machine and not a nice taste. But if you go to the Corner cafe in the Hotel the coffee is nicer there.
Pool on 23rd Floor fab and plenty of towels for saunas and pools. Jacuzzi a little cold, however we had a fantastic break for 4 nights.
Use the Metro to go to Barceloneta beach, sea and sand fabulous, also use Metro for town. Visit La Ramblas, but watch your bags! Go to the market and eat fresh Cuttlefish, Prawns,Fish and Calamari in "Bar Central" inside the market. 25 Euros for a plate of fish coooked in front of you, lovely.

Room Tip: Buy a Metro ticket T10 costs 10 Euros and use this as a cheap form of travel, to get to the town and...

Barcelona Princess certainly has the initial 'wow' factor. The view from our hotel room was gorgeous. The bed huge and comfy and a nice, clean (ish, although there was a lot of dust) room and bathroom.

It is a bit far out the centre. We figured out the local bus and the shopping centre next door is fine for a cafe breakfast but anything more it's rather blah.

The hotel itself though has no soul. It's cold. It's a big, business hotel and doesn't feel very 'holiday'. The service was excruciatingly slow at times (we walked out the upstairs bar after sitting more than 20 mins and not even having placed our order).

I would have loved for it to be fantastic with a bit more of a personal touch but it wasn't and it left us a bit cold.

Dear guest,

We’re sorry if you haven’t a nice experience with us in Barcelona. We’ve spoken with our staff because they should know your opinion. All department heads have been informed.

The hotel is located in the Forum area near next to a Shopping Center full of shops and restaurants. Furthermore, the beach is 10 minutes walking, the city center 20m by metro and there are different activities to enjoy: Cableski, Barcelona Bosc Urba, Nature Museum, etc.

We hope you give us another chance to show you that we can be better on our service.

Best Regards from Barcelona

This hotel is lovely. The rooms are very modern, with electric blinds and shutters. For those who have complained that you can see into the bathroom, there is a blind that can be lowered. The room is a decent size and many overlook the sea. The area is quite new and therefore there are not many bars. However there are beach cafes which stay open late and some restaurants in the shopping centre. The beach is only a short walk away and there are small pools on the roof and third floors. The only point to complain about is the price of the breakfast - £20 a head. We didn't even try it and ate in the shopping mall instead.

If u are a first time traveller to Barcelona I don't suggest u stay here! Your impression of Barcelona will be that the people are cold;unfriendly & this is far from truth! The price u paying u might as well go & stay at a smaller boutique hotel where they actually greet u & help u with thyour bags!no concierge!don't be fooled intoned the whole free mini bar! They only fill fridge with 4 drinks! water;coke;lemonade & beer.once a day!liights don't work in rooms. Bathrooms small & shower runs over.pool on 23rd floor nothing like pic! Its small & industrial looking!good things though good location!hop on hop off bus right outside;diagonal mar mall right next door& beach near by!great view of sea & city.I personnally wont stay there again until they revamp their decor & teach their front office staff to be more friendly & helpful!

Dear Guest,

We regret any inconvenience that we may have caused you during your stay at the hotel.

The Barcelona Princess Staff has been informed about your review. Furthermore, the reception staff hasn’t any note about your complaints, so we don’t know what happened during your stay at the hotel.

Our staff is trained to solve all customer complaints. We want the guests enjoy their stay with us in Barcelona. If something doesn’t work in the room, we will repair or make a change of room. We just need to know the needs of our guests.

We are sorry if you are disappointed with our minibar free of charge. All the rooms have a minibar with five drinks: coke, lemonade, beer and waters. If a guest drinks all of them, we replace the drinks again the next day.

We hope you enjoy your stay in Barcelona and we are here for whatever you need.

Best Regards

Santiago Hernandez

Where do i begin, I have got to be one of the most fussiest people when it comes to hotels but i found a real gem with regards to the BCN Princess. The location is fantastic if your are not looking to stay in the hustle and bustle of Ramblas. But if I'm honest you don't need to stay in the direct centre because you are only 15 mins away at the princess. This hotel is 10 mins walk to the beach and the nearest metro is practically across the road. Also the hotel is next to / practically joined onto the biggest shopping centre in Barcelona Diagonal Mar which has every shop and eatery you will need. The hotel staff are friendly and all English speaking which helps. The rooms are fantastic in size, very clean and modern. One awesome feature of the room are the electric blinds! the zircon works wonders and the satellite tv caters for most european nationalities for anyone from the uk you get bbc 1, channel 4 and E4. We didn't try the food but i looked great but there are many food shops around plus a nice cafe across the road which we used. All in all i would say this is perfect for couples, friends even families to use. I am returning in August and will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: A high floor will will u a good view of the sea or the city its del depending on which side of the h...
