Good location that amenities are nearby. Camp Nou is 15 mins away on foot with restaurants pharmacy and a bakery nearby. There is a shopping mall further down the road while a short bus ride brings you to ave diagonal for all your luxury. Rand shopping needs.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 August 2016

We arrived in the middle of the night due to a problem with our original hotel, the night receptionist was cautious with us and didn't divulge a lot of information about the hotel to us; however, that was forgotten about once the day staff were on duty. We stayed on the 16th floor which provided access to 'The Club' ;...

Distinguished Travelers, Wow! Thank you so much for sharing this terrific five stars review with the rest of the TripAdvisor users.

After a long delayed trip over to Barcelona, the welcome at the hotel was brilliant. Throughout the stay the service was excellent, and the rooms and area was second to none. Breakfast was also very good, with plenty of choice. Rooms were very clean and spacious.

I've been there for my graduation trip and it was an awesome experience. From the room to the staff and breakfast, it was simply perfect everyday. A little big pearl in the heart of Barça, near to the underground and the Camp Nou.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, before boarding a cruise the next day. The Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia seems like it has been a very posh hotel, but it has definitely seen better days. Service by everybody who works there was great, from reception, to the concierge, etc. It is not a bad hotel, you can get to...

Interior is a bit dated and location is not very good for the city centre but standards are high and food were good. Obviously, very good if you come to see Barcelona playing at home. There is a huge shopping centre nearby so even if you come on business you may find time to do some shopping. Also, it drive...

I have never had a hotel more thoroughly cleaned than I did at this hotel. The entire staff was lovely and the room small but very comfortable. While it is billed as a five star hotel (and perhaps it was in the sixties) it is probably more along the lines of a 3.5. The furniture is worn and the decor...

The first 5* hotel in the city, this emblematic luxury retreat forms part of the history of Barcelona and bristles with tales around national and international royalty and important figures from the world of politics, culture and entertainment who have been amongst its guests. Perfectly located on the famous Avinguda Diagonal - in the noble financial district of the city - it is only a 5 minute walk away from Camp Nou football stadium, home of the legendary FC Barcelona, and a mere 12km from the airport. Its 500 timelessly elegant rooms are all exterior-facing and offer - from the 9th floor up - magnificent panoramic views of the Catalan capital. ... more   less
