“Great Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

I will come again definitely. Very friendly staff and a very one of kind reception desk.
Unfortunately the roof terrace is still under construction, but will be opened soon.

Great service - champagne when you check in, very friendly staff. The room was spacious and luxurious. The free mini bar is a nice touch as well. It's moments away from the main shopping area and a nice walk to the gothic district and the beach. Definitely recommend staying here. There's nothing not to love.

We had a "standard" room, which is already in the 40sq m range. Everything is stylish, and the bathroom is huge. Breakfast is first class as well. In line with what you expect from a 5* rating. Central location (metro Diagonal) and staff very helpful. Not what you would call "cheap", but the price is justified.

This was our first week-end in Barcelona. Alma hotel is great and we regret nothing at all ; the service was good, especially champagne at the arrival, the pick-up service at the airport.

As we arrived late in the evening at the hotel, they served some foods even their restaurant was closed.

The room was cosy and big, really perfect to rest. From our window we had a view on the backyards, it was quiet, not any noise - we had an impression to be the only clients of the hotel :) (of course not).

Employees are nice, hospitable.
They even helped us in web-checking of our return flight home. We also had the possibility to let our luggage at the hotel after our check-out until our evening flight.

We might only point out that the cost of the breakfast is a too expensive, even for a starred hotel.

The Alma is an intimate and beautifully appointed hotel. The staff are exceptionally accommodating. The rooms are luxurious and large, and the spa is a great bonus. Our stay was as near to perfection as one could imagine, and the cost was quite reasonable.

Alma has been opened for 9 months - we were thrilled we found it! From our arrival from the airport w no euros for the taxi (which the valet immediately paid, no questions asked) to the sleek, elegant decor, this place covers the details. We were here for 3 nights, just 1/2 block from the great shopping street, Gaudi buildings and lots of restaurant options. The bathroom is unbelievable - huge white marble shower (for two?) w rain shower head and a great separate soaking tub. Super comfy bed. Had breakfast our last morning, yes, a bit pricey at 50 euros for two, but it was beautiful. Incredibly helpful staff, cool fingerprint access room key and every comfort with simple elegance. note: Fitness center is basically a sauna, steam room pool and a small room with a few basic weights.

This Alma is very nice and the service is first rate! My only reason for taking away a star is the lack of a proper fitness Center (the spa isnt really a spa) and it is impossible to open a window in the room. Otherwise, excellent!
