“Love this place!”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

I can't say enough good about Alma Barcelona. The location is absolutely perfect -- in the Eixample, so not quite as loud/touristy, but a short walk to the premier Gaudi sites. We were a block and a half from Casa Mila (with a view of the roof from our room), 2.5 blocks from Casa Batllo and a pleasant 10 min walk to Sagrada Familia. Starbuck's and restaurants nearby and very convenient to the metro as well. Our room was large, modern and very well appointed. The bed was deliriously comfortable. And the staff was absolutely amazing and helpful. We also loved the keyless entry (you can use a fingerprint reader to enter your room). I highly recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay here again!

We visited Barcelona several times the past few years but it was our first stay in Hotel Alma. Only one word can describe our experience: excellent. The rooms are very spacious and exquisitely designed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Although this is a more high-end hotel you immediately feel right at home. The breakfast buffet can be quietly enjoyed in a relaxing sofa or, when the weather permits, in the beautiful garden. For distracted people, don’t worry anymore about where you left your room key. You can just open the door using the fingerprint scanner. The hotel is located at the corner of the Passeig de Gràcia, a very central and more luxurious area of the city. Without any doubt one of the best hotels in Barcelona. The next time we go to Barcelona we will definitely stay at the Alma hotel again.

Just back from a long weekend stay in Alma,as some of your previous reviewers state it is an island of calm in bustling Barcelona on grand prix weekend!
From the moment I arrived from a golfing week in cambrils and checked in early to arrange flowers for my partners birthday who was flying in from Newcastle later that day,the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful,a different class to the staff in Arts where I stayed on my last visit to the city
When Marie my partner joined me later she was met with a glass of cava and birthday wishes
Paul,one of the most professional and friendly front desk guys I have met arranged a restaurant for us for that night and tipped them off that it was her birthday
A great touch when they brought a cake out totally unbeknown to me
When we arrived back to our room that night a bottle of cava was on ice for us in our room

Now that is very special service AND the reason why I will be staying at Alma on my next visit to this great city

We were on the 6th floor with views over the oasis of a garden and given how busy the city is we could not hear any noise at all

I can't comment on the food as we ate out all of the time but the breakfast option looked comprehensive if continental is your thing

The whole operation is first class with first class friendly staff making time every day for a chat

Don't hesitate......get it booked

Room Tip: Go high,great views and no noise

The entrance is not easily spot from the street.
But right at the heart of the city there is an oasis of calm and modernity in this superb hotel.
Great food, super neat room and very friendly people.
