Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff (very friendly staff here). We stayed in the deluxe boulevard room. Things I liked: - Nice views and great location - Friendly staff - Nice breakfast and good quality food - Pretty decent spa - Put rose petals on our bed (real ones) But the rooms are not what you would expect of a 5-star hotel: - Terrible layout, makes you feel like the rooms are going to squeeze you - Slide door bathroom with a see-through panel (aquarium style) makes it really awkward for sharing a room - SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE BED (TERRIBLE MATTRESS AND PILLOWS) - General interior is little bit too Ikea (looks too cheap for a 5-star hotel) - In general certain items in the room felt worn off and need replacing - Doesn't have a bath They also charge you half a day rate for late checkout, despite the issues we encountered during check-in. Upon arrival, they messed up our room and gave us a twin bed by mistake, and while they changed it, we ended up staying in the adjacent room with a closed door (joint room style). These type of rooms make me always feel uncomfortable. Not what you expect you paid for, despite being €625/night. Despite the niceties, I don't think I will ever come back here and personally wouldn't recommend it to my friends.
Mandarin Oriental's location is perfect with access to almost everything you need. The most important is the staff in this luxury boutique hotel who are incredibly helpful and friendly, just amazing. The breakfast is excellent, the Peruvian sushi restaurant on the roof is excellent and dinners we had at other restaurants were also very good. It is expensive but worth.
What a great Hotel. Best location, really amazing from outside, great and warm service, the Concierge team was one of the best we have ever experienced, the rooms are pure luxury, the Spa and the treatments a MUST for everyone who is staying there. Mandarin Oriental Hotels are always a good choice, this one in Barcelona the one and only Hotel for us. We stayed also in the other 5* Hotels, but this is outstanding and no other hotel can compare with the Mandarin O. We will come back.
Nothing compares the Barcelona experience if you stay at the mandarim.At the heart of the city,with outstanding service,it makes your trip one of a kind.The Moment's restaurant,is the best experience one can have with the modern Catalunya cuisine.Superb facilities for all guests.
Fantastic property with a great location in Barcelona. There’s no surprise wherever we go, Mandarin Oriental will give us the best service. Superb dinner at Moments, many thanks to Filipe, for his attention to the detail and kindness, he definitely adds value to that place. The focus on the Spanish wines and the way that the sommelier presents it is to be proud off. Another place to go is the bankers bar, great evening with really good and friendly staff.
the lobby is unimpressive and confined. we had a suite and it was very small considering what we paid. the view was that of tenements. don't think you are viewing a zen garden. you can look down and see some trees - that's it. the breakfast on the lower floor was great, though. lot's of choices and service was great. luckily it was included in our room as it was over $100 for 2 buffets. i would probably stay at the Ritz again next time, although the Mandarin did have a great location.
I am very impressed with the hotel as a whole from its design, to its location and the staff. The rooms were impeccable but most importantly the service was beyond amazing. The whole staff was very attentive and careful in accommodating us and the concierge was very helpful in recommending places where we could dine and go out. Also the rooftop pool bar serves well crafted drinks and good sushi.
We arrived in Barcelona a few days prior to embarking on a 14-day cruise in the Mediterranean. While having stayed at Mandarin Hotels in Asia and the US, this was the first time staying at their European properties. The Barcelona property clearly continues the fine tradition of all of the others. We had an exceptional suite on the quiet back side of the hotel, away from the noise of the Passeig de Gracia, with a balcony overlooking the gardens. The space was well-appointed, with fresh fruit and a welcome bottle of wine. The staff saw to our every request, including keeping the minibar overstocked with Nespresso coffee pods to accommodate our coffee 'habit'. But beyond the accommodations, the Concierge staff was absolutely TOP NOTCH. Their consistent recommendations for dinners, drinks and other things for us to do were excellent, though the casual dining area, where we had breakfast each day, was equally tasty. The spa staff was incredibly accommodative, and my partner's deep tissue massage was just what was needed a day after the long flight from the West Coast of the US. One treat that we enjoyed several evenings while there was the pop-up NYC bar Employees Only, which took over the lobby bar. The bar was converted into a speakeasy with generous libations and tasty treats. The mixologists and staff flew over from the New York outpost, and we befriended the manager and head mixologist. I know that we will return to the hotel again, as the entire staff made us feel at home during our entire stay!
An absolute pleasure to stay here as always. Exceptional and friendly service from the staff with quality rooms. Very welcoming on arrival, the room was ready early and the suite was exceptional with a large balcony. Mandarin Barcelona, you should be proud of yourselves!
I have always been a huge fan of the Mandarin Oriental brand and have spent many trips at their beautiful and luxurious properties all over the world. I recently spent a long weekend at the Barcelona property- the staff there were very nice but the hotel experience could not have been more disappointing. It was a very busy weekend in town so my room was not the room category I would have normally booked. However even for a standard room, it was absurdly small and was so dark with tiny windows it was depressing. The hotel gym did not have an attendant so you have to go to the spa to request a key for access. When I asked the concierge for a dinner reservation they were dismissive and I was told there wasn’t anything available, which surprised me. Additionally, I twice asked to have my room turned down and it was forgotten. I understand room prices and availability shift based on demand but nothing about my experience at this property felt like a luxury hotel. I love writing positive review because I know how difficult it can be to run a luxury hotel but unfortunately this property was no where close.
