Great location & facilities
Situated pretty close to the main city area, we could almost walk everywhere. 1km + to gothic quarters, and to la sagrada. Less than that to the shopping district, La Rambla, Casa Battlo and Casa Mila (La Pedrera). Along the way, there are always many restaurants and cafes which you can stop at to enjoy tapas and sangria. The hotel is modern in design, something which I prefer. The rooftop pool is a little small, but it's great that there are enough sunbeds to go around. Otherwise, you can also pay a small sum to go to the spa at the basement - we went twice! In the room, we were a little amused by the number of suggestive illustrations of gay men on the safe, facility card, etc, but it didn't bother us much.

a hotel deserving your stay
I reserved a single room, but it is big enough for u to "toss and turn" at night. What is priaise wotthy is its location, which is only five minutes walk from the metro, where you can reach almost every corner of the city.

Interesting Hotel
The Alex Hotel is well located in Barcelona, easy to walk almost anywhere. The staff was helpful, but often there was a wait to get someone to assist you. Given the size of the hotel it would have been nice to have more staff available to assist with check in & out, as well as assist with other issues. The external architecture of the building is quite beautiful & it has been tastefully updated inside. The wifi in the hotel was very unsatisfactory, very slow and often shutting down mid downloads. I expected bette service.

too exepensive
The hotel is located in a great spot, just in the missle of the city centre - close to everyrthing. The rooms are nice and well equiped and the staff is very nice and helpfull. The hotel is not cheap at all though! I got an email just few days before I arrived, telling me that the spa and rooftop are under constructions. Obviously the price stayed the same.
