Loved the fingerprint technology to enter your room - who needs keys or swipe cards?
Near some great Antonio Gaudi houses. Nice stroll to central Barcelona. Boutique hotel in a quiet location. Large, well appointed room and modern bathroom. Staff were extremely helpful and provided good restaurant suggestions.

We stayed at the hotel for five nights. My husband and I stayed in an executive suite which we would highly recommend paying the extra 50 or so euros for. It was huge, and felt quite luxurious. Our sons stayed in a deluxe double which was also very nice, being at the back of the hotel and therefore very quiet. We had a very nice welcome to the hotel, as the chap on the front desk seemed to know exactly who we were as soon as we walked throughout the door, and the offer of cold water and a glass of Cava was most welcome. Unfortunately, our good mood was dampened by the fact that our tv's wouldn't work due to the rainstorm (!?), and our plans to order room service and watch the European soccer cup final were scuppered.
Our room was very spacious, with a great bathroom and comfy beds and crisp white linens. We unfortunately didn't manage to stay in the same room for our entire trip, as the electricals kept failing in the room and we were forced to move. They offered us another suite, but on the 1st floor which we were not happy about due to the street noise, so we eventually moved to one on the 3rd floor which was ok except for a slight musty smell. We asked for a key to open the window which was readily provided, and that helped to air the room.
All in all we loved the hotel for it's modern, spare style and the very helpful and pleasant staff. But it would appear that all the high tech features mean that technical failures are more common which can be very disruptive.

Room Tip: Go for an executive suite on a high floor

I recently stayed here with my daughter for 3 nights...I could not have picked a better hotel! Great location, staff very friendly and helpful. Room very sleek...good size, nice view of the courtyard, and very quiet. And the price was very reasonable...would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: We had a corner room on 5th floor, overlooking courtyard

We all very much liked the place and will come back. For us it is a treat to stay at a hotel where there is no disturbance of traffic or neighbours. Also very nice personnel. Breakfast should be less expensive, we went to a close by café instead

First rate services; excellent location. All the staffs are very knowledgeable from where to shop and eat to getting tickets for "hot" spots. It is definitely worth the extra to stay at the executive suite. I would highly recommended Alma over any other hotels I have stayed before in Barcelona.
