All kidding aside, the club is awesome...endless soft and hard drinks, tapas, fruits, veggies, and desserts, very wonderful staff who speak great English, extremely clean rooms, and awesome view of the futbol stadium.

This hotel would certainly be rated 5* in a resort but, being in a city, it's nearer 4* though this is, for modest me, no bad thing. Room reasonable size with comfy bed. Bathrobe & slippers provided, bur stingy down-market toiletries a disappointment Breakfast very good, except that there is no egg station, so fried eggs are done in large...

Staying here in October for 2 nights. Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia is a luxurious hotel with good service and great breakfast (lots of choice). Although not very close to city center it is close enough to public transport.

Stayed during October for 2 nights. All along our stay we enjoyed superb service, great quality and variety during breakfast, and easy access to all public transport option. This hotel, in spite of the large number of rooms, still gives you a sense of uniqueness. Highly recommended.

Despite the fact that our stay was too short, the hotel services were very good, the staff very friendly and the location is excellent. The concierge and the reception staff were very helpful.

The hotel is located far from the city center, in a quite a relaxed university area of Barcelona. The underground station is a ten-minutes-walk and it takes you 15 to 20 minutes to get to Plaza Catalunya. It's about 20 minutes taxi drive from the airport in good traffic conditions. The lobby is spacious, usually quiet and according to the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
