Reviews summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI

The Grand Hyatt Barcelona has garnered attention for its contemporary design and serene atmosphere, with guests lauding the luxurious touches throughout the property. While the hotel's cleanliness receives consistent praise, opinions on its location are split—some appreciate its proximity to transport and its quiet setting, while others wish for a more central location. The state-of-the-art amenities, including a spa and swimming pool, are often highlighted positively. However, some travelers consider the pricing steep given the extra charges. Service is generally commendable for its professionalism, although a handful of guests have encountered responsiveness issues. When it comes to accommodations, the modern and pristine rooms are well-received, though a few guests have raised concerns about lighting and privacy.

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The staff is really really nice, and they are always making sure you are having the best experience ever, the rooms are amazing, the beds are very comfortable and they have a "pillow menu" so that is also very nice.
The amenities that they give you are good and with a variety of stuffs to use and consume.
The laundry service is amazing as well and they make sure you receive everything in the best conditions.
The breakfast is really good, a variety of foods and they all tasted amazing.
The location is incredible, the neighborhood is safe and modern, with lots of restaurants and shops to go, and the "hop on hop off" buses have stops right in front of the hotel.
If you are planning on going to Barcelona, this is the hotel to stay, I promise you won't regret it.

Just 15/20 mins form the airport this is a real 5 star luxury hotel.
Gorgeous bars, decor and public areas are all spotless and uniquely designed. Reception and door staff are so welcoming and helpful.
Rooms are spotless well decorated with modern lighting techniques that get take a bit of getting used to. Comfortable beds and lovely linen
Everything is faultless, a great hotel ! Excellent breakfast with a huge choice of dishes, gluten free is no problem.

I have recently returned from a short city break to Barcelona with a friend (4th/7th Sept) and what an amazing time and stay we had a Hotel Sofia! It’s definitely the nicest hotel i’ve stayed in so far for a city break and I will be recommending and returning in the future for sure.

Check in was efficient, all the staff at the hotel are so friendly and attentive. The decor at the hotel is stunning! It’s so modern and clean.

Our room was lovely, we booked a Harmony room (room 308 for reference). The decor again was stunning, the room is such a good size and we had everything we needed! We had requested an iron in the room which was their on arrival, there was robes/slippers to use and a proper hairdryer (not a travel sized one which is what you usually find in hotels). The mini fridge is expensive so we popped to the supermarket and stocked up on snacks. Housekeeping were great, they came everyday and the room was immaculate.

The bed was the comfiest bed i’ve ever slept in and the shower was amazing, so powerful! The only downside I would say is that the shower is very see through which is fine if you are staying with a partner, but if staying with a friend/colleague or family member this could be a bit of a problem. There is a screen that divides the bed and shower area which does block it off but not completely, this could be different however in a twin room? We had a double so maybe that is why!

We didn’t have breakfast or dinner at the hotel as we ate out for our whole stay so can’t remark on that, although the restaurant did look lovely.

We spent our last day by the pool which was so nice! After having two full on days in the city it was lovely to be able to chill before catching our flight that evening, all the facilities were still free to use even after we had checked out. We were able to use the spa/gym facilities to shower and change before leaving too which was great.

The location of the hotel was perfect, the metro a short walk away which takes you straight into the city, taxi’s are everywhere around the hotel and if you choose to do the Hop On Hop Off bus while you are visiting one of the stops is right outside the hotel.

All in all a fabulous trip, I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Barcelona and I’ll be returning myself if I return in future.

Hi, we recently visited the Sofia and really enjoyed the property. It's very convenient to the airport, about 15-20 minutes away so that's nice. To be honest, I was a bit worried when we arrived that it was a bit far from the "sites", etc...but I was wrong. There's a metro (subway) entrance about a two minute walk from the hotel and you can get to the Gothic Quarter and other higher foot traffic areas within 20-30 minutes. The metro is very easy to take and very well organized. The rooms were quite spacious and the staff went out of their way to make sure that our stay was conformable. I want to give a special commendation to the evening concierge, Christian. He went out of his way to help book us a tour and also helped arranged it so a guaranteed taxi would he waiting for us at 4:30am since we had a very early flight out that morning, his service was exemplary. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Barcelona.

Hotel Sofia is a beautiful hotel. Location isn't the best for sightseeing, but is close to the metro and many buses. There are however a few issues with it:

1) Suite upgrade for Hyatt guests: As a Globalist, I typically get upgraded to at least a standard suite, if it's available. However, I was upgraded to a So Suite, which is a grade below the standard suite, First Wish, as listed on the Hyatt app. When I asked the front desk at check-in, they claimed that these were the same, which didn't sound credible at all. I also verified that the First Wish suite was available when I checked in.

2) Shower door: There are gaps around the shower glass door, so the water would splash out of the shower, making the rest of the bathroom really wet. I had to place multiple mats outside to soak up the water. I was just taking a regular shower and not splashing water around...

3) Aesthetics over pragmatism: The design of the hotel seems to place aesthetics over pragmatism. For instance, the tap was impossible to turn if your hands are wet or soapy.

4) Environmental sustainability: I wish the hotel would place more emphasis on environmental sustainability. There's nowhere in the hotel where you can fill up your bottle with drinking water; your only option is either the tiny disposable plastic bottles in the room or tap water. I was initially quite pleased that they used larger sizes for the shower amenities to reduce waste, thinking that they provided that because I was there for four nights. However turns out that they used that regardless of your length of stay, as I got a new set of amenities on my last night.

5) Breakfast spread doesn't change: The breakfast spread is incredible if you're there for a day, but can get really boring if you're there for four, as the spread is the same every day. They have an almond croissant that is really good (with cream filling), but ironically, they don't seem to have that everyday.

I booked the Sofia Hotel for a few nights just me and my Husband.

We loved it!

It was our first visit to Barcelona. So much to see and not enough time so we will most defiantly have to go back, perhaps in the cooler months!

Took a taxi from the airport direct to the hotel under 30 euro, on arrival our bags were taken from the taxi straight to our room. Check in was seamless and welcoming.

We stayed in the Sphere room which is extremely spacious and very modern. Quite the open plan bedroom which I loved, the shower was more like a room of its own and had some amazing toiletries.

Everything was operated with a remote pad (one as you enter the room and one on either side of the bed) to operate the lighting, black out blinds and curtains. The bed seemed really firm but we both woke up the following morning having had the best sleep ever!

Make sure you book breakfast there is something for everyone the choice and quality is phenomenal! Staff are on hand with freshly made coffee, cappuccino, espresso however you like it and as much as want. Breakfast is in the Impar Restaurant, we had dinner there one night which was also delicious.

This hotel isn’t in the city of Barcelona and that’s why I choose to stay here, we like the buzz of the city during the day with the quiet of the hotel in the evening, and this hotel is perfectly situated for that purpose. A few minutes walk to either the tram or metro which are both cheap and easy to navigate into the main hub, around 25 mins.

There is a big El Corte Inglés also only a few minutes walk away, with lots of little local coffee and food places.

Husband used the gym while I went for a relaxing massage, if you have time defiantly book the spa. It is beautiful. The hotel has a small swimming pool which we didn’t use.

The coffee shop in the lobby is also a must. Its completely gluten free and delicious.

The staff are friendly, knowledgable and the housekeeping do an fantastic job to keep the hotel immaculate. An amazing and affordable 5 star hotel one which I will be recommending and returning to.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for 10 days from 2 December to 12 December. Due to our work schedules, we have few holidays of which we can spend together and so had high expectations for our stay in Barcelona and in particular the Hotel Sofia.
It was downhill from the moment we checked in.
We were not given any information about the facilities in the hotel. The room size was exceptionally small despite the photographs on the website. This is something we could cope with, however, what was not acceptable was the treatment we received in the first few days.

We were given one tiny bottle of water to share between the 2 of us. When I asked the house keeping to give one extra bottle, she point blank refused. The way she answered was very rude and just not what you would expect from hotel staff. If we wanted more, we had to pay the 7 Euros from the mini bar. When we requested a glass, or a single knife from room service, we were charged 4 euro each time. When staying in 5-star hotel, you would never expect to have to pay additional expenses for a member of staff to deliver a utensil to the hotel. When we questioned reception about this, they said we must pay a service for a service. In all the hotels we have stayed in across the globe, we have never heard such utter nonsense. It was clear, customer service was not their forte.

By day 3 of our stay, we were becoming more uncomfortable and decided to take a break from the hotel and leave Barcelona for a few days and pay an additional cost for another hotel. On returning, the staff appeared to be more friendly and accommodating but this was after we spoke to one very decent member of staff who we believe shared our woes with the other staff.

The cleaning of the rooms was very poor. They left dirty glasses in the room. If we had asked them to bring us clean ones, we would have been charged so we ended up cleaning them ourselves! On Sunday, there was a knock at the door and within 5 seconds, the door opened. I was coming out of the shower.

One night we ordered room service. The guacamole was old and gave us both mouth ulcers. The next day we ordered food from outside but were charged for the hotel staff to bring it to the room.

My husband and I ended up bickering with one another because the holiday ended up being very stressful rather than a time for us to spend some quality time together.

We paid so much for this holiday and it was the worst experience we have had. The majority of the staff were rude and stuck up. The additional fees were incomprehensible. When we visit places, we like to return the hotels we have stayed in but we will never return to this hotel. We suggest retraining of the staff to ensure future guests don’t have to endure the unpleasant experience we experienced at Hotel Sofia.

The staff make this hotel special ! Our last visit here, we met Runa who was delightful. This time we met Oriole and Valeria, with whom we enjoyed talking. The entire porter staff was superb- we were here on the night before our Regent Cruise, and they insured we had all the information we needed and promptly took care of our luggage both arriving and departing. The rooms are interesting in their design and we like having the espresso maker in the room. The breakfast is wonderful!

They did, however, have someone else’s name listed on the television welcome screen 🥲 during our stay. The hardware in the sinks is also is very worn ( the plug is black but used to be brass). These are small details but for $600 USD a night at a 6 star hotel they tend to matter more.

Overall it’s a nice hotel.

check in was quick, and room card gives access to your floor via the lift. Bedroom is a very good size, enough plugs to charge everything you need. Good sized bathroom. The bed is one of the most comfortable i've ever slept in which takes two maids to make. The room is spotless.
All areas of the hotel are very clean. Breakfast is excellent with a large selection of hot and cold food (the hot food could have been a bit hotter) good selection of fruit, pastries and cold meats. Had an evening meal whilst I was there and again was very good quality and good variety of choice.
For the football fans the Camp Nou is five minutes walk away
Certainly a hotel I'd recommend

We recently stayed at Hotel Sofia for 5 days for my partners Birthday. The whole trip was fantastic.

The Good: The pool and pool bar area. Super clean and stylish. The loungers are comfortable, and the food and drinks great. The pool is quite small, but a very welcome addition. Tip: get down early if you want a lounger. Although staff do remove the towels after a while from those loungers that people have tried to reserve and left, so they do become available.

The Very Good: The breakfast was awesome, such a wide selection. On occasion the hot buffet food was a little bit cold, but it was refreshed very often. And the chefs would prepare omelettes on request. The servers kept coffee cups full and fruit juice aplenty. The welcome to breakfast by the hostess each day was so warm, and she even wished my partner happy birthday without prompting. A lovely touch.

The Excellent: All the staff are so helpful and friendly. They couldn’t do enough for us. Special mention to Isaac (thank you for the great restaurant recommendation with Mirabe), Bruna on check in and reception. She is a delight. And Kasia in the Spa. I recommend booking spa treatments and making use of the amazing spa while there. We booked in advance. The spa only opens currently from 3pm.

The whole hotel is very stylish. The lift system takes a little getting used to, but is very slick. And the rooms are tranquil havens, kept very clean by the housekeeping team.
The location of the hotel is a little way from the centre of Barcelona, however there is a metro in very easy reach. We got taxis so easily from outside the front door, and they are very reasonably priced. So don’t let location put you off. Unless you expect to step out the door and be on La Rambla or in the Gothic Quarter straight away.

Thank you Hotel Sofia for making a birthday trip extra special. The addition of the candle as a gift from the spa, and a little birthday cake in the room were so welcome and a classy touch.

I am not sure how long the pool is but it is quite narrow and I believe it is not really suitable for proper swimming. It is just my assumption because I did not use the pool itself. I just use the sun bed next to the pool
