My wife and I stayed at the Alma Hotel for a vacation towards the end of May. The hotel staff was so personable and helpful. The rooms were modern, clean and quiet and we had a good view of the top of a Gaudi building too. All of their suggestions for restaurants and attractions were spot on. Not having been to Barcelona before we felt immediately welcomed and knew where to go. We kept trying to get reservations at a fancy restaurant but they shared another suggestion that turned out even better.

The only concern we had was that the hotel breakfast was vey expensive (25euros) and it was the same breakfast we received included at another hotel. We felt it wasn't worth the expense. But, that was the only hitch. Everything else was superb.

Room Tip: Go for a room that faces the garden.

Just returned from a long weekend in barcelona staying at the Alma.
Firstly the location is excellent,you are literally 30 seconds walk from the Passeig de Gracia,about a minutes walk from your first slice of Gaudi architecture-La Pedera and 5 mins from your second-Casa Batlló.
The hotel itself is very stylish-minimalist yet comfortable without ever being pretentious.In fact the staff are amongst the friendliest, nicest people I have ever come across.
You are made to feel very much at home as soon as you arrive and I have to say I loved the fingerprint entry system for your room and the Spa-you get to feel like a secret agent every time you open your door!!!
Our room was immaculately clean,all dark wood and pristine white ceramics with an extremely comfortable Kingsize bed with separate duvets so no duvet stealing from the significant other!!!
The terraced garden at the rear of the hotel is lovely and also very quiet-perfect for late afternoon tea after sightseeing.
The Spa has a steam room,sauna,a very funky if small pool and a fitness room.I would say that the fitness room,being a bit of a gym freak,was my only disappointment just for lack of equipment-it has 1 bench ,a trx and a pilates machine with only 2 free weights but I was happy to swim more.
We only ate breakfast at the restaurant which was very good but a touch on the pricey side (25 euros each) unless you have a mammoth appetite and can put away a whole buffet!!
There were a good selection of cold meats,pastries,fruit,yoghurts and cereals to help yourself to while any extras such as scrambled eggs can be ordered from the kitchen
This was my first time visiting Barcelona and I would love to return soon.
When I do I won't hesitate to stay at the Alma again.:-)

Loved the understated cool of the Alma. Not for those who love stripes or chintz or flounces. Staff are well trained, very friendly and call you by your name - rare in many hotels. Garden is a haven of peace. Lots of newspapers every day to browse through. Free wifi. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Silent air con. Only niggle - we booked an executive suite which was beautiful but very noisy at night from traffic - all the exec suites we were told are on the road side so no point changing to another and ear plugs dont block the noise. We would stay again but would sacrifice space and take a smaller room for a quiet night's sleep.
