Great hotel in an amazing city

The Alma is modern and historic in every sense. Compared to most European hotels, large high quality rooms with ample mini bar and extremely comfortable beds.. Absolutely five star staff. Ideal location in the city and the best garden bar and restaurant I could find.

Perfect location for a city break in Barcelona
Reviewed 1 week ago

Passeig de Gràcia is one of the major avenues in Barcelona – its perfect for shopping, dining and also home to one of Gaudi’s masterpieces, Casa Batlló. A stone’s throw away from this major tourist attraction is the minimalistic and elegant Hotel Alma. The beauty of this hotel is that even though it’s in the middle of the city, it has a large stunning manicured garden area for dining and a cozy, roof top garden for drinks. The property is more of a sophisticated adult retreat than a family hotel, but saying that it does cater for kids upon request. All the rooms only have fingerprint locks instead of room key; shutter blinds for curtains and the interiors are neutral and masculine toned. For the best view I would suggest requesting a Grand Deluxe room as they offer views of Gaudi's iconic wavy-stone La Pedrera building.

Lovely hotel, great service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I just returned from a 3-day stay in Barcelona, where I lodged at the Alma. I selected the hotel based on location to my business
Meetings, and on the great Trip Advisor reviews. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the hotel, and the service. My experience started when I made a joke at check-in about needing a glass of wine instead of the water that was offered at check-in. Immediately I was asked if I really wanted a glass of wine, and one was brought to me within a minute or two. That same level of customer support was evident during my 3 days. The hotel itself has an elegantly contemporary vibe. If weather permits, take a drink on the back patio, which is a lovely green oasis.

The hotel itself is just off of a major high-end shopping and restaurant district. Of more interest, Gracia is a 20 minute walk north, and the Gothic and El Born Barrios are 25 minutes south. Both walks are safe and pleasant.

Wonderful Relaxing Stay in a Great Part of the City!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed in the executive suite for about 5 nights. We are very picky about our accommodations and service and this hotel was top notch in its offerings, service and quality.

We arrived while there was a taxi strike and the concierge really explained the city to us on a map in full detail. They were incredibly helpful. In our room we had a hairdryer, I asked for an iron and they also gave me an adapter for my hair iron, for those of you who are wondering what to pack or not pack.

The Turkish bath in the basement is a wonderful retreat from the busy Barcelona day. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We had a lovely stay.
