The Alma Hotel Barcelona is a nice, centrally located boutique hotel. What I want to highlight is the courtesy and friendliness of the staff, esp. at the front desk. They had plenty of great tips (e.g. for restaurants) and organized everything just perfectly. And when checking out they asked me not only whether I liked the stay but also about suggestions to improve the guest experience.
An ingenious feature is their key system – your room-key is your finger print, you don’t need to worry about losing or forgetting it. We had an executive suite: lots of space and a nice bathroom, though a bit dark (the room, not the bathroom). The only thing I missed was a coffee maker (they promised to consider this idea). The spa area is not huge (no surprise considering the size of the hotel), but has everything we needed: a long pool, a small gym, a sauna and a steam sauna.

Centrally located, quiet, luxurious, private, discreet, friendly, efficient, clean, spacious rooms, stylish, comfortable. We travel to Barcelona regularly, and the Alma is our favourite place to stay-in to date. Will definitely stay there again when next in town.

Spent 6 nights there and left just before the strike. The Alma provides a quiet respite from the busy, noisy streets humming with motor bikes. The staff though young, works hard to provide you with attention and always smiles. The rooms are as advertised (we stayed in a grand deluxe with quiet courtyard back view) and are kept very clean with a nice turn down service (fied bed, slippers, water and a candy to end your day). The location was perfect. Barcelona is an easy walking-city and within 2 miles from the hotel one can see many of Barcelona's best attractions. Many are even much closer. Did not eat at the hotel but did have a coffee for a reasonable price. One negative is the gym is not really a gym by most hotel standards. Still, we walked about 5 miles a day and got our exercise that way.I would stay here again without question,

Room Tip: Not sure if they have rooms facing the street, but we had a courtyard view room and it was very qui...

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.
