Great location, friendly staff. The pool and spa facilities did not meet my expectations

Beautifully designed interior and our hotel suite was as modern as it is functional. Wood floors, wood panels, soft closing drawers and millwork cladded with blackened steel, thassos tiled shower space and infinity drain. I can go on and on about room appointments but most importantly- the staff is professional and courteous, insulated window glass completely shuts out the street noise and the mattress/bedding is perfect! We loved our stay at this perfect hotel!

The hotel is clean and in a convienient location for tourism. The staff at the hotel is extremely helpful and friendly. They made sure we were comfortable, hailed taxis for us, opened doors upon arrival and departure all day and kept our room stocked with juice, water, soda and beer, all at no extra charge. The pool and spa are on the -1 level, the pool was nothing special but it is nice to have for rainy days and children.

Awesome hotel with clean modern room and friendly staff.

Very nice hotel located in the heart of Barcelona and main street. The only thing missing is facilities (very small gym, no pool)

Great service in a great hotel. Amazing location. Contemporary style with Spanish touch.

What a great hotel! It could not have been any closer to the sites and shopping areas. The staff was more than just friendly, they went out of their way to make sure you had everything you needed including helping us understand the best way to see the sites of Barcelona. The room was 5 star. They even gave us free access to the mini bar and delivered complimentary champagne to our room on our first night's stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay when in Barcelona. Our only complaint was the bed and pillows were a bit uncomfortable, they were very nice, just did not fit our sleeping needs that well.

Outstanding hotel - 5-star well-deserved. Location is truly central (20-min walking radius to all the main neighborhoods and attractions) and is a half-block off main street so quieter. Has a lovely back garden oasis and rooftop terrace. Plus a beautiful Turkish pool underground. Right around the corner is high-end shopping (and we are talking all the stores), amazing food (Michelin 2 just across the street at Lasarte - spectacular) and the hustle and bustle of Barcelona (plus several Gaudi buildings), Hotel is elegant but understated with friendly, local service. If you are looking for a Mandarin-level experience, but without the corporate feel, cannot go wrong w/ the Alma. Also loved the high-tech finger-print entry - never appreciated how convenient it is when you don't have a hotel card! We will be back for sure.

Perfect location, very classy with great amenities. Staff were incredibly gracious. Would stay there next time in Barcelona without a doubt.

Rarely do you book a hotel and room that is perfect, but The Alma is the one. Unfortunately we were there only one night, but the front desk was organized, staff friendly, the twin room gorgeous, down comforters luxurious, the complimentary Cava delicious, the garden enhanting, and the spa incredible...spa pool, steam room, sauna, fancy showers. Location perfect. Didn't have breakfast due to early flight...but when I go back to Barcelona, The Alma will be my top pick.

Great Hotel with amazing decor, very modern and cool, great location very near from Av. Diagonal and friendly staff, would recommend.

I have stayed in many hotels in Barc, and this is the best one of all! San Mateo, CA

This hotel was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful Great location!!!

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.

The Hotel staff is phenomenal! The hotel is very modern clean, quite and relaxed. Enjoy the Spa on lower level, Brunch on terrace or the view from the roof bar with a delicious cocktail. The rooms was amazing clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here on my next trip to Barcelona.

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.

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

surprised to find room access by fingerprint! great location but lack of carpets raised noise level

Great experience all around. Disappointed we only had one night. Service was impeccable. Location is great. Room outside garden area fantastic. Would live to go back!
