How to Get There
The hotel is in a great location, near public transportation, restaurants and La Pedrera. They offered a good breakfast buffet and had both an indoor and outdoor restaurant, plus a cozy bar. The room had a large bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful and offers all the amenities needed to have a memorable experience. It is centrally located and is within walking distance from several places that one would want to see/do while visiting Barcelona.
We (2 adults and 2 kids, ages 10 and 7) stayed in the apartments that are close to the main property and even closer to everything else; we had an absolutely beautiful 2-bedroom / 2-bath apartment; the kitchen was very helpful in managing quick and convenient meals, especially breakfast.
We will definitely return to beautiful Barcelona and will again stay at Hotel Murmuri; we will also recommend that our friends and family stay here when they visit Barcelona.
Wonderful hotel in the absolutely city centre, close to la Pedrera and 7-8 min walk to Plaza Catalunya. Very nice and friendly staff. Breakfast excellent, you can also get it in your room. The room was beautiful and there were a lot of high class amenities in the bathroom, Coffee maschine but you have to pay for the capsules
We stayed in the Romea suite apartment just around the corner from the hotel on the cute Passatge de la Concepcio. The apartment was roomy with a full living area, kitchen, bedroom, full bath, and extra half bath with a washing machine/dryer. It is located in a perfect area in Barcelona, convenient to the most popular streets with numerous restaurants and bars. The check-in/out was quick and the hotel personnel super friendly. It is located on a street with some very popular bars and restaurants. While this is a plus, it also gets noisy late into the evening. However, the apartment has shutters you can close to block out most of the noise. If you're a light sleeper, you may be better off on the back of the building. A great pick in Barcelona!
My family of three actually stayed around the corner from the hotel in the Apartments Concepcio. We booked a two bedroom and two bathroom unit. The apartment isn't huge, but it has all of the necessary rooms (living room, dining room, full kitchen with combination washer/dryer, utensils but not more than a couple of skillets). There is also a full fridge with freezer and minibar items in case you really need them. All of the linens were first rate, the beds were extremely comfortable, and there were electric blinds in all of the rooms. There was also a balcony with chairs and a table and sun umbrella. The view is of the neighboring apartment buildings. The bathrooms (one ensuite) were all modern and had a ton of amenities. The en suite bathroom is spacious with double sinks and bathtub/shower combination. One caveat is the bathtub is a bit high and the tub floor is extremely slippery. It would be good if they supplied a bath mat and hand rails to prevent any accidents.
Location couldn't be beat as it was off of the Rambla de Catalunya with its various shops and restaurants and bars. The street the apartment was on has an entry to the Rambla de Catalunya on one end and the Passeig de Gracia with its myriad shops on the other.
The reception is also what makes this hotel stand out. All of the front desk that we encountered were so helpful and welcoming. Very professional. We had to ask one of the young men to help us check in online for our flights home and to print our boarding passes. They have complementary computers for guest usage, but there was an issue with them the day we were there.
Everything about the hotel was fantastic, therefore, I highly recommend anyone to stay at the Murmuri especially the apartments which are good value.
