ALMA Barcelona aims to be a way of experiencing and discovering the city. Here guests can enjoy the advantages of a 5 star GL city hotel while savoring something of the flavor of travel and hotels in days gone by. The hotel, a distinctive building in the Example district, has enabled the hotel to revive Cerds original idea when he planned the district, of opening out to the city, making a private place public.?

It is THE place to stay in Barcelona

Excellent, customer oriented staff. Marcus was particularly extremely helpful each morning but really, each staff member went to great lengths to accommodate you - period. Location was central. Metro was close by, and there were a ton of cafes and tapas bar all within a 10 minute walk of the hotel.

Alma touches the soul

I love this place! Very cool but elegant vibe with great amenities-the spa,pool,steam room fantastic and outside court yard and roof top an oasis from the busy city. Only draw backs-no one was there to assist with luggage until sometime after we entered hotel. They also help behind the desk and cannot see arrivals. In room phones difficult to use. Poor wine menu by the glass. I would definitely stay again

Understated luxury

Very impressed by the ambience in this hotel - had an air of elegant luxury. Perfect if you like an understated minimalist aesthetic. We were initially worried about the location being out-of-the-way - but it ended up being perfect. Easy walk to shops and transport, but far away enough to be quiet and calm. Service from the staff was impeccable. Attentive without being overbearing. Room was very nicely furnished, and the design was quite unique. My only small gripe is that the in-room lighting was very dark. The low lighting was good for atmosphere, but would have liked the option of brighter functional lighting for times that you need it.

Great hotel. Excellent location in a safe, upscale neighborhood that is convenient to the old city and other key sights. Staff was extremely attentive and helpful. Room was well appointed and very comfortable. Pleasant outdoor terrace for drinks and snacks. A sumptuous breakfast buffet is available at an extra charge--not cheap, but fairly priced given the breadth and quality of food served. Only negative is that the fitness room in the basement really does not have much in the way of equipment.

Excellent hotel

Alma has a wonderful location on a side street off the Passeig de Gracia. There are nearby cafes for breakfast. It is within walking distance to Ramblas, el born, and the Sagrada too! The rooms, while simply furnished, were clean and spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Alma provides convenient perks like free Wi-Fi (always fast) and free minibar. It was wonderful to have bottled water and refreshments when returning to the hotel at the end of the day. Finally, the staff was top notch befitting the hotel's 5 star rating. They have that wonderful quality of going above and beyond requirements. They provided excellent restaurant recommendations, gave personalized direction either on their foldout map or even printing out from their computer, and even volunteered to make restaurant reservations by phone (so helpful if you are not a fluent Spanish speaker). Highly recommended and a great value.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

To go to Park Guell, take the #24 public bus...it stops on Passeig de Gracia one block from hotel. Fare is about 2 euros each way and can be purchased on the bus.

Location, Staff, and beautiful hotel

This place couldn't have made my first experience in barcelona any better! It was amazing! The staff was incredibly helpful and gave us some great and amazing tips of where to go for dinner, to shop, and be one with the local culture. Also, the pool and spa were gorgeous! Had to take a dip in the pool the first day. Will be staying here the next time I return to barcelona...until we meet again Alma ;)

Great Hotel Stay

Very elegant hotel - staff very friendly and helpful! The only slight criticism would be the wi-fi is a little spotty in the rooms. The staff did try to address my concerns re: this so can't really fault them so much. Excellent hotel and highly recommended!!!
