“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

We booked an executive suite and it was great, one of the most comfortable beds ever and great bathroom as well. Beautiful hotel in a really great location, we visited the restaurant once and although nice not great.

Bar is nice and very chilled out but almost too chilled out, lacked atmosphere and quiet often no staff behind it at all.

Spa is not really a spa as such just a shallow dipping pool and sauna and steam room, my husband loved it and was the only person using it most evenings but some may be disappointed.

Over a great hotel in a lovely city!

The personnel at Alma Barcelona are extraordinarily helpful, patient and pleasant. The location is excellent and all the attractions of the city are easily accessible. The rooms need more lighting, it was difficult to see in the room at night with the current lighting.

Well located, about a 10 minute walk north of Las Ramblas, 20 minutes west of La Sagrada Familia and a few minutes away from La Pedrera. There are many great restaurants in the vicinity, as well as shops.

We stayed in an Executive Suite and were very happy with the room. The rainfall shower was fantastic and the room was very large and comfortable. The decor was minimalistic with clean lines, solid colours and a bit cold, but not enough to detract from our stay. The novelty of the fingerprint scanner did not wear out. It was very quiet at night.

The service was impeccable, especially with regard to taking care of our restaurant reservations.

Only one suggestion - please consider equipping your rooms with DVD players!

We just returned from 2 nights at the Alma Barcelona on a week long trip to Spain. The Alma was the highlight of our trip hotel wise. The location is perfect - walking distance from many terrific restaurants, nestled among beautiful city blocks and very close to several Gaudi buildings. Only a 15 min walk to La Rambla & the waterfront, but out of the main tourist zone so quieter tourist wise, and in my opinion, a much nicer neighborhood. The hotel is near many high end shops if you are interested in good shopping.

The staff was extremely helpful and made us feel right at home. The rooms were very spacious and bathrooms large and brand new. Hotel has only been open a year. Decor is modern and understated but well appointed. The bar is fun and outdoor back terrace nice for a mojito after a day of sightseeing.

We will return!

The staff gave us such personalized service that I knew most of their names at the end of our 7 night stay.

We called the night before to let them know we'd be arriving very early the next day, and they indicated they will likely have our room available. Not only was it available but they seemed to know which couple they were expecting that morning. We were greeted with offer of a seat, a quick chat on our particulars (welcome water was offered), finger print for the door, directions to our room with our bags delivered right away and we slept for the next 5 hours high-quality sheets with comfortable, separate quilts on a gigantic bed. The shutters darkened the room and noise and we slept beautifully every night regardless of the time of day/night or weather.

I have another 46 paragraphs on the topic but in the interest of all, I will leave it at that. It was all good, no recommendations for improvement in any way.

Just this-breakfast is 25 Euro! Do it once since the garden is lovely, but there are many fine cafes nearby that are just as good and are a part of the city so suggesting you take advantage of those instead. Also, the staff of their breakfast/dinner garden aren't nearly as good as the rest of the staff.

One more thing! Internet access there is excellent. We used the garden a lot for chilling for a couple of hours before our next outing, and the internet service in our room and the garden were excellent. In the rest of Barcelona, not so much. We didn't feel compelled to order anything when out there since they have several small tables further away from those who were eating. Maybe it was just because we were down there so late each day since we slept so well.

Room Tip: Close to Metro, Rambla, bus and shopping. A nice, safe, central neighborhood close to access all par...
