What We Love

  • Situated right on Paseo de Gracia, minutes from the Ramblas and the vibrant Gothic quarter
  • The things it must have seen: More than 100 years old, the Majestic played its part in historic events like the Spanish Civil War and the Olympics in 1992
  • The Majestic spa, with products from local cosmetics brand Natura Bissé
  • Impeccable, newly refurbished rooms with white marble bathrooms
  • Choose between snacks on the roof terrace, seasonal fine dining in Condal restaurant or a meal in some of the city's trendiest restaurants, just a few blocks away

What To Know

  • A city tax of approximately $3 (€2.50) per person (aged 16 and over), per night will be collected by the hotel at checkout
  • Beneath a Philip Stanton mural on the roof terrace, the small pool is more for decoration than for training purposes
  • From November to May the roof terrace hours vary, so ask beforehand if you’re planning on an alfresco nightcap
  • While the spa and rooftop bar have a contemporary feel, the reception and common areas and Deluxe Rooms cater to more classic tastes

5-Star hotel with exceptional service and in perfect location!!!!
Reviewed 1 day ago

My family and I enjoyed a fabulous week long stay at this 5-star hotel!!! I highly recommend this hotel for anyone vacationing in Barcelona. First, the service was exceptional. Everyone was extremely attentive to our needs. The manager allowed us to check in several hours early due to the early arrival of our flight from the U.S. And he accommodated us with 2 balcony, city-view rooms. WOW!!! We were extremely grateful for this!!! Second, the location in the heart of the city can not be beat. We were in walking distance of dining, shopping, the metro, and even the pick up locations for our excursion tours. Third, the views from the rooftop pool and lounge are outstanding. It is just the perfect place to unwind and take in the city all at once. And finally, as far as helpful tips, they offer free WiFi during your stay. The service is fast and reliable, and you are not limited to the number of connected devices. They also provide 2 complimentary outlet adapters in each room. So, there is no need to buy extra adapters if you’re coming from the U.S.. Each room also has 2 robes, 2 sets of slippers, and an umbrella to use during your stay. So no need to pack these heavy items in your luggage. In a nutshell, this hotel’s 5-star rating is well deserved and I definitely will stay here again on my next trip to Barcelona!!!! It is simply. MAJESTIC!!!! :0)

Whoever runs this place should be ashamed

I stayed here at the end of September/beginning of October. It has take me so long to write a review because I was waiting for the GM to call me, as I was told he would. Out of respect, I didn’t want to post my review until after I spoke to the GM. But he obviously didn’t care enough to follow up. That should tell you something.

This hotel experience was horrible from start to finish. We waited 30 mins to an hour to check in. We STOOD in line like we were waiting to check in at the Caesar’s Palace in Vegas. My friend and I complained but no one cared. A better hotel would have (aside from having the check on staffed properly to avoid such a line in the first place) escorted us to the lobby or bar and offered coffee or a drink while we waited. 45 minutes later the front desk agent could care less about our long wait. And of course, our room wasn’t ready yet.

One night I called to order room service. I ordered a chicken salad wrap. I learned that it was pre-made when I asked them to remove tomatoes and they said the wraps are made in advance. I didn’t order anything else. About 45 minutes later I called for my order and was told it was on its way. 20-30 minutes later I called again and it still was not ready even though previously it was supposed to be on its way. I was told that they would make it that second. I reminded them it was pre-made. After 4-5 calls to room service I told them I didn’t even want to wrap anymore. It was beyond my bedtime at that point. They brought it anyway. easily 1.5 hours (maybe 2) after I ordered it. it was like warm. And disgusting. there is NO excuse in any hotel let alone a “5 star” hotel (and I wonder who gave them the 5 star accreditation) to take hours to deliver a single pre-made wrap.

Oh, there were also NO spa appointments available at anytime. This was annoying because the only reason I book the Majestic in the first place was because it was on the American Express list and if book with AmEx one of the benefits is a significant spa credit which is obviously meaningless when you cant get a damn appointment. I heard a few other guests at the hotel complaining about this as well.

The breakfast buffet was so filthy and not at all maintained throughout the course of the several hours long brunch. I lost my appetite. I’ve attached a few pictures which really doesn’t even do it justice. It was filthy and unappetizing. Many items they just simply ran out of and didn’t seem to care about replenishing.

There was at least one other incident that I can’t even remember right now. It was honestly the worst hotel ever. I’ve stayed in hostels with better service.

Although management was already aware of my concerns throughout my stay, I spoke to yet another manager during check out. He seemed somewhat interested and I think comped some items on my bill. But honestly, these screw ups are more than getting something for free. At that time I was told that the GM or owner would definitely 100% be in touch with me. I said I didn’t really care to ever talk to anyone at the hotel again but they basically begged me under the guise that the GM “will sincerely want to hear my concerns to make the hotel better.” So I left all of my contact information. And I never heard another word. Disgraceful.

I could go on and on but I think I’ve said enough. This place is an embarrassment. Stay somewhere, anywhere else.

Old fashioned but very friendly

Ideally located at the Passeig de Gracia this hotel is a bit dated with relatively small rooms but with great service and a fantastic team who make the stay convenient.

An ideal hotel for business travelers and conferences.

Wonderful hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

I had a wonderful experience with my family in November 2018. This hotel could not do enough for us. Concierge was wonderful and very accommodating. The restaurant served the best breakfasts I have ever had on vacations. The rooms were big and clean and the staff kept the entire hotel immaculate.

Location, staff, and breakfast takes this hotel to the top!

Barcelona is a beautiful city with a lot of lodging options. The number of choices can be dizzying with a variety of price ranges. I was very excited when I found out that I could book the Majestic Hotel and Spa via my CC to get an excellent price.

We got to the hotel early (10 am) on the day of arrival to check-in. Early check-in was 12 PM but there was a room ready. I was informed that I can get a room upgrade if I was willing to wait which I was. Since I had a tour booked at 11:00 am, I left my luggage with the staff and informed them I will be back after the tour. I already felt very welcome just from this interaction. Everyone went out of their way to make sure that we knew the stay was going to be special.

Not knowing Barcelona, I was a bit concerned that the hotel was a bit out of the center of the city. However, the location turns out to be the ideal location for what we wanted to do in Barcelona. There is a subway/train station close by (3 min walk) that allowed us to go everywhere we wanted to go. In fact, we took the train from the airport to the hotel and were easily at the hotel within 35 minutes from terminal 2. There are also several bus stops close by. There is a multitude of of restaurants including one of my favorite (La Paradeta) just a short 5 minute walk. You are also close to Casa Batlo which you get to see lit up in various colors during the night.

The room I had on the second floor was superb and very comfortable. It had a big bathroom with separate tub and shower room. We didn't have a street view but had a view overlooking the inner courtyard. It wasn't pretty but it let plenty of light into the room.

A hotel is only as good as its staff and in this case, the breakfast is also spectacular. My stay included the breakfast which makes for an incredible feast every morning before our day starts. There are enough pictures about the breakfast that I'm not going to describe it. Even after 3 days, I could still find new items to wow me. Needless to say, my wife and I usually leave the hotel to start our day in Barcelona more than satisfied. In fact, we skipped eating a full meal for lunch because of the incredible breakfast.

About the only negative I could think of was the inconsistency of the turn-down service. It seemed that on the first 2 nights, they forgot that there were two people staying in the room so they only turned down one side of the bed. That was very strange and was corrected the subsequent nights.

My conclusion is that the Majestic Hotel and Spa easily passes the test for a luxury hotel. The incredible staff and the central location easily makes the hotel an easy recommendation.
