              Every things were good.”

              All staffs were very kind and gave adequate advises for my questions.

              I stayed 6 nights for scientific meeting. The room was very spacy and clean, and was very nicely bed-maked every day. The breakfast was very rich in meat, breads, vegetables and juces. Metro staton was very near and thus I could easily access to any places of Barcelona. Football stadium of FCB was situated at the distance of 5 min walk.Moreovere, the room price was vely low due to off-season visit. I will surely use this hotel again if I viist Barcelona next.

              Good location, Clean room, great breakfast

              We stay 3 nights in the Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel. It was a pleasant stay. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was really friendly. The room was clean. The hotel is close to Nou Camp Stadium so it's really good place to stay if you would like go to watch Barcelona FC football game and visit the musueum and the Nou Camp. There is metro station at 300m and bus touristic stop next to the hotel. But it's not a 5 stars hotel like they announced maybe 3 stars hotel is ok.

              Location, great food, wonderful staff

              We had a great time staying at this hotel. We were in town only a couple of day to see the city and to enjoy a Barcelona game at the Camp Nou. The experience was wonderful. The hotel is greatly located to do so many things;but more importantly, is the best location to experience the Camp Nou. We even had the chance to see the players in the hotel. I don't provide many reviews, but this hotel is well worth every penny.

              High class hotel at a very reasonable (Agoda) price

              really nice hotel, centrally located and not far from the metro (starbucks is 3 min away if you need a fix), great staff, rooms are very nice, some may consider faded elegance but was very comfortable. two complaints are that the free "mini gym" is pretty small, and some of the equipment was out of service. the pay-for spa is terrific, but that's just it, you have to pay extra for it. also, wireless access to the internet is very expensive by us standards, although you can purchase access by the hour, if you prefer.

One small highlight was the ballpoint pen of very good quality provided in the room. Unfortunately the windows did not completely block the noise from the great avenue next to the hotel, even less of course when the window was partially opened for fresh air.

              awesome breakfast, comfortable beds, nice bathroom

              This hotel was nice and clean. Our room was spacious and quiet, and the bathroom was large. Great water pressure in the shower (always a plus). We also had robes provided for us, which were cozy. Nice pool/sauna/hot tub area, although we had to pay euro per person to use it, which we did not know before arriving. The coffee provided in the lobby at 4 am when we checked out was very much appreciated! The breakfast was stellar, too. Negatives: The man at the front desk was a little rude. There was some confusion at check-in because I booked a double room (for two people) but his records showed only a room for one person. He got really upset and flustered by the mismatch, and I did not like his attitude or harsh tone of voice. I felt like he was blaming me for the mistake when it seemed to be a simple - and quickly fixed - booking error, and I was pretty upset by the interaction. Definitely ruined the start of my stay here.

My room was pretty quiet and I've been able to get a descent sleep.

              Location of the hotel is handy to local transport. The Club Rooms are good sized rooms and suitable for families.

              The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our stay.We had a pleasant surprise when we checked in:- As we had a club room we were led to a club lounge for a direct check in. Full club facilities including all day tea/snacks, drinks and internet facilities were provided at no additional costs.
