Good location that amenities are nearby. Camp Nou is 15 mins away on foot with restaurants pharmacy and a bakery nearby. There is a shopping mall further down the road while a short bus ride brings you to ave diagonal for all your luxury. Rand shopping needs.

After a long delayed trip over to Barcelona, the welcome at the hotel was brilliant. Throughout the stay the service was excellent, and the rooms and area was second to none. Breakfast was also very good, with plenty of choice. Rooms were very clean and spacious.

I've been there for my graduation trip and it was an awesome experience. From the room to the staff and breakfast, it was simply perfect everyday. A little big pearl in the heart of Barça, near to the underground and the Camp Nou.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, before boarding a cruise the next day. The Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia seems like it has been a very posh hotel, but it has definitely seen better days. Service by everybody who works there was great, from reception, to the concierge, etc. It is not a bad hotel, you can get to it from the airport by metro, and the area it is located is good. There is a big El Corte Inglés just a short stroll away if you want to go shopping. However, as I said, this hotel has seen better days. For the price, some furniture is dated and worn (see photo of armchair). The hotel is not close to La Rambla, but you can get there easily by metro. If I were to return to BCN, I would probably look elsewhere to stay.

Generally speaking all was as expected . Happy with the services and all run smoothly. I recommend it as it is quiet central and clean. Travelled for business . Wi fi was very fast and staff was very polite and friendly

We had a lovely week here.staff couldn't do a enough for you room was spotless we were up graded to the 16 floor the club absolutely fantastic room, great location lovely size swimming pool and garden definitely recommend will be back.

As I was in business trip in the city of Barcelona, i enjoyed my stay in the hotel with a provided services for a business meetings and several choices of restaurants and coffees. Car parking also one of the advantages of the hotel.

Interior is a bit dated and location is not very good for the city centre but standards are high and food were good. Obviously, very good if you come to see Barcelona playing at home. There is a huge shopping centre nearby so even if you come on business you may find time to do some shopping. Also, it drive to/from airport was really quick even at peak hours!

I have never had a hotel more thoroughly cleaned than I did at this hotel. The entire staff was lovely and the room small but very comfortable. While it is billed as a five star hotel (and perhaps it was in the sixties) it is probably more along the lines of a 3.5. The furniture is worn and the decor needs updating. Nonetheless, it was well-priced and we enjoyed our stay very much. It is close to three stops on the Hop On Hop Off Blue bus and we were actually able to use our passes as our transport for most of our three day trip as a result.

The location is good and the lobby is ample, but I was expecting more of this 5 star hotel. I had a small bedroom considering the high price charged. No complimentary drinks in bedroom, breakfast costs 27 euros. Small bathroom. Overall, pretty disappointing.
