Every things were good.”
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.
Really nice stay”
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.
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.
Lovely hotel and great staff”
the room was quiet, spacious, comfortable, and clean. the hotel staff are very helpful and attentive. sightseeing and tour information are available from a very knowledgeable concierge. while the hotel is not centrally located the public transport system is amazing. the metro station is close to the hotel as well as buses and tram. the hotel restaurant and bar are very expensive, but the german patio restaurant is reasonably priced and fun. the breakfast buffet was pricey, but excellent.
Great hotel that you can't go wrong with”
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.
Good business hotel”
The Reception was efficient and friendly. Nice to get free wireless internet connection. The room was sizeable, fresh and clean, the bathroom well equiped. 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.
comfortable, not exceptional”
Pleasant, too long metro journey to the centre. The hotel itself was in accordance with the price. Conservatively decorated , good size room, comfortable bathroom, generous breakfast.
good location, great service, great rooms”
The price was fair, the location is good, the service is excellent, breakfast could be better (not enough vegetables for my taste..)
Good value old hotel, next to Barca stadium”
Good, old 5 star hotel which is now more like 3.5 star. Good service, really good breakfast, nice beergarden in summer. Value for money but not luxury, location is good only for. Barcelona football matches.
Lovely hotel with style”
We stayed one night on our way to a cruise... it was the perfect start of our vacation. This hotel is clean, bright, well located, good staff en beautifull rooms.
Nice hotel but pushy service”
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.
Excellent location, friendly staff”
Welcomed to the Hotel by Raul, who explained everything that we needed to know. Breakfast was very good, large choice with both hot and cold food. Staff in general are excellent, very friendly and only too pleased to help.
Luxurious hotel with great spa and massage”
The stay was relaxing and comfortable with a polite and friendly staff The breakfast is a bit average but the 18 floor lounge was great Easy to get around town taking a taxi and the hotel staff pointed out a few nice places
Business hotel ”
The hotel is well located between the airport and city center. I had business meetings nearby and this was optimal. Distance to city center is some 30 minutes walking along nice streets. I forgot something small in my room and is still hoping the my things have been taken care of. If they have kept my stuff and send it I will be even more pleased with the hotel service. Lets see...
Great location and good breakfast”
It was easy to find the hotel as it was conveniently located beside the metro. The breakfast spread was generous and the service staff were very friendly. There was good space in the room for Relaxation. We even got rooms early in the morning and there was no extra charge.
Very good hotel”
Near subway station. Courteous and helpful staff. Spacious rooms. Fairly equipped. Excellent breakfast. On some days you have to stay in line for the breakfast for over 20 minutes. WiFi available through a third body with payment.(Hey, this is the 21st century). Good value for money.
indulge a night in a cosy hotel thanks to agoda”
Just an entire day in this big hotel. I didn't take advantage of all the equipment (like the spa for instance). The staff was really nice at the reception. My room was pretty quiet and I've been able to get a descent sleep. With a tram downstairs, and the metro at 5 min walk this hotel is well located and easy to access without beeing plunged into the plaça de catalunia crowd.
Warm welcome to Barcelona/Spain”
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.
Great hotel with helpful and friendly staff”
Great hotel subway to the old part of the city 5 minutes away. Tourist bus departs from just around the corner. Great shopping centre 10 minutes walk away.
Good value for money”
It's a great hotel for the price, the staff make the hotel
