        Amazing hotel run by helpful and very friendly staff ”

        Stayed in the Princess for 4 nights, we'd built up staying there a bit as when my fiancee and I first went to Barcelona it was through her job that she had then. All the top people in the company stayed there and was somewhere she'd wanted to stay in since. We were not disappointed at all, from the very first moment the very smart and friendly gentleman took our bags from us till the time we checked out. Everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is stunning, very modern and clean, and designed to take in views of the city where ever you are. We had a room on the 22nd floor with a sea view, but we didn't realise that this sea view would mean we could watch the sun rise over sea which we woke up once to watch. A special mention to the lady who made us our cocktails by the pool. Friendly, fun and lovely cocktails every time. We intend to return to Barcelona again soon and we know where we'll be staying. The Barcelona Princess. Thank you to all staff there

        Impressive hotel!”

        Convenient amenities, great service, location of the hotel

        I was initially on a business trip and stayed a few nights at Hilton hotel (just 5 mins away). I have extended my stay at Barcelona and have decided to lodge at a nearby hotel. I was very impressed with my stay at Princess Hotel, it is situated just beside a mall and metro station. From my hotel room, I had a wonderful seaview. I watched the sunrise every morning! The swimming pool is a rooftop pool with the same seaview and had gorgeous design by Desigual, perfect place for romantic couples! Although the room was small, the concept is simple, neat and the housekeeper did a good job to keep it clean. The receptionists were also very friendly and spoke good English. I was initially very worried about pickpockets at Barcelona, but Princess hotel really made my stay a splendid one! If given a chance to travel to Barcelona, without a doubt I will stay here again.

        This hotel is ideal for a weekend break. The staff is lovely, friendly and welcoming. They also helped us find our way to various places and tried their best to make sure we are comfortable. The rooms are clean and modern and the views are amazing!! We also had breakfast at the hotel- a bit pricey but convenient. If you want to save yourself some money, there's a lovely bakery by the metro (El Maresme Forum). Overall, I would definitely recommend Princess Barcelona!

        Modern Hotel for Old School Spain”

        The place had a modern contemporary style and was a couple blocks from the water. I had an amazing view of the ocean. It was great waking up to the sunrise over the water. It was the perfect start to everyday I was there. The Princess hotel has some pretty decent amenities. There are 2 pools, a gym, and a couple restaurants located within the hotel. Room service was reasonably priced too. Also it's right near to a mall. The staff upheld great service and were incredibly professional. The only problem I had was with the plumbing. Every time I took a shower the water leaked everywhere in the bathroom. It wouldn't have been that big of a deal. However the water leaked right by the electrical outlets. So I was a bit skeptical to plug anything in or blow dry my hair. Other than that, the place was very clean. If given the oporitunity I will most certainly stay there again.

        It was our first time in Barcelona and we wasn't sure where to stay but looked at reviews of this hotel and all of them seemed really good. For anyone who isn't sure I would definitely recommend it! You are a little further out of town but it's quieter and still really easy to get into town as you are on bus/ tram routes. Hotel is very modern and clean. Breakfast is good if you choose to add that on. Overall very happy with our stay and would come back again.

        great location, nice swimming pool with excellent view, and clean

        I stayed 7 nights with my friend on 21st floor. The location is great which only takes us 5 mins walk to the metro station line4(yellow line).With the metro, you can easily reach to the most sight spots in Barcelona. It's a bit off the city center but closer to the beach. It takes around 10-15 mins on foot then you can reach the beach (main part) If you prefer to stay in comparable quiet place, Princess hotel is the good choice for you. But I have to point out the room we stayed is with very poor internet. We have to every day downstairs to the lobby to access the wifi. This caused a lots of trouble for us. We were disappointed about this not so good facility. Hopefully, hotel technical can immediately sort it out and imporve the hotel quanlity further.

        A most enjoyable stay”

        This was my first visit to Barcelona and I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel gave me the 25th floor (the penthouse was the 26th). The room was great, with a seaview, and I was impressed with how clean it was. The hotel was next to a giant mall which made everything so convenient, especially with the huge supermarket in the basement of the mall. Wifi in the room was excellent compared to other hotels I've stayed in. The only negative point I would say is that the gym was a bit hot and stuffy as the air-conditioning wasnt working properly there. Would def stay here again.

        Very clean, next to mall, nice view, good room and breakfast
        Quite far from main tourist area

        The Barcelona Princess Hotel is located near the sea in a new area of Barcelona. The hotel is very good value for money with clean, bright, modern rooms. It is located right next to a mall making it easy to shop and find restaurants. The breakfast buffet is very good quality for the cheap price it's offered at but if you don't hire a rental car it may be quite inconvenient to get to central areas like La Rambla.

        Amazing hotel with a great and kind staff.”

        I came to Barcelona on the day when it was hit by a terrorist attack, I was staying at Ramblas (downtown) but the next day I had booked this hotel instead. I loved the fact that it was a bit outside of busy areas and near the beach. If you were to take the taxi to downtown it would cost you around 12 euros or $15 usd. I used to walk from the downtown to this location 45-55 min walk and had no issue. The hotel itself is amazing with the great and helpful staff. They were very welcoming! One thing I noticed that there is little to no privacy in the bedroom. I mean you can hear your partner take a dumb or pee or even see their shadow if you dont use the curtain. So this is a perfect place for couples.

        cool funky hotel”

        location, value, free mini bar

        We like staying in the Diagonal area in Barcelona as there are not so many tourists there and this hotel is definitely better than the Hilton just around the corner. It is right next to a large shopping centre and there are lots of excellent little local bars and restaurants close by. It is also only a couple of minutes walk from the train station and across the road from the tram. The rooms are funky and clean and we had an amazing view of the ocean. The only gripe is that there were no tea and coffee making facilities but this is common in Spain, but there were also no ironing facilities and you had to use their expensive "pressing service" - we just went with wrinkled clothes, so if you are a business traveller make sure that you bring a "no iron" wardrobe. Wi-fi in rooms was good but very patchy at times and free mini bar - water, beer and soft drinks (sodas) was replenished every day. We didn't use any of the food/dining options.

        Perfect hotel.”

        This hotel far exceeded my expectations and I would go there again in a heartbeat. The staff were excellent, the rooms were large, bright and with every convenience, and the breakfasts were to die for! There are two small pools with sunbeds on the third and twenty-third floors. The one on the third floor was often in the shade, but the water was a pleasant temperature. There is waiter service at the 23rd floor pool and a small restaurant/bar next to the third floor pool. There are no sun umbrellas, so if you go to the top pool, make sure you take hats, sunscreen, etc. My friend and I spent three nights there, and were given adjacent rooms on the fourth floor. Many reviewers advise asking for upper floors, but we found it quite convenient to be lower down, and usually walked up and down the stairs to the restaurant, breakfast, etc. The stairs are functional rather than attractive, but we sometimes found we waited quite a long time for one of the lifts to stop on the fourth floor - they seemed to go from top to bottom and back again to top - so decided exercise was good for us. Trams and buses ran right by the hotel, and the metro was only a few minutes walk away. We never made it to the beach, although we could see the water. There was a large shopping mall nearby, but otherwise nothing to see or do in the immediate vicinity. The staff were excellent at helping us with directions and this lovely hotel more than compensated for this tiny inconvenience.
