stylish hotel in the a great location

Posted Oct 14, 2014
the hotel is great. though they dont provide ironing board and iron in the room and if you ask for one they insist that that you use thier laundry service. for a suit and shirt cost is approximately 30 Euros which is absoulety silly.. Not sure how they will cater to a business crowd??? Anyways when i was informed about this had to go down to the recption and protest strongly and they agreeded to waive of the ironing charges.... Also no coffee or tea machine in the room.. for a hotel which costs approximately 250 euros a night theses are two very glaring ommissions... would stay elsewhere next time since i think these are essential and basic services expected from a 5 star property.. It's a shame since the staff and service otherwise is really great...

Great location

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staff, great location
Cons: Room lacked adequate seating, could have benefited from an additional comfortable chair or love seat.
Location: Great location, good shopping and abundant eating options literally right outside the door
Very nice boutique hotel in a prime location just steps away from Barcelona's nicest shopping street, 1 block from Gaudi's La Pedrera house. Staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and went out of their way to be helpful. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

great location and very helpful staff. While a nice rooftop bar and lounge it would be nice to have an outside pool area. Great rooms and overall a great hotel. If you have a car, the offsite car parking is 30euro per day.

Beautiful hotel, amazing staff, perfect location.

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Pros: Wonderful atmosphere, clean, relaxing, friendly, helpful staff.
Cons: Yes, there should be an iron and ironing board.
Location: Centrally located and very close to high end shopping. Every place you want to go is either walking distance or a very short taxi ride.
From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed the Alma hotel. We were greeted right out of our taxi and assisted with our luggage. Relaxing check in with water brought to us. The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing, so after touring the city all day, it was nice to come "home" to relax. It was quiet and very pretty. We really enjoyed the rooftop lounge and spent several nights up there overlooking the entire city of Barcelona. Elizabeth was fun to talk to and learn a little bit more about the area. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful, spending time with us answering our questions and helping us find places to eat and things to do. I would stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to friends.

Boutique hotel, minimalist

Posted Sep 17, 2014
Pros: Comfort, nice friendly staff
Cons: Mirror in the room so ladies can use whilst other half is using bathroom. Shower caps in bathroom (although you can ask at reception).
Location: Tourist bus around the corner, La Rambla 15 minute walk, lots of nice coffee pavement areas to sit and watch the world go by. Shops galore.
Dark hotel entrance with nice architectural features. Our room was small with only one single wardrobe but our friends (we asked for garden view for them as birthday celebration) was huge with lots of storage space. Beds very comfortable. Ladies beware in our room the only mirror was in the bathroom. If someone is getting a shower the mirror steams up so take a vanity mirror so you don't have to wait for the bathroom to be free for drying hair/makeup. We did not experience any noise from the street. Wifi very quick. Garden area for breakfast, good area to sit and eat but beware breakfast is expensive and the menu is mainly eggs, poached, omelette, scrambled. Very like a continental breakfast with good choice of pastries but worth paying for to sit and relax in the lovely surroundings. Coffee served is excellent quality. Papers to read whilst in the breakfast area.Roof top terrace was lovely, with comfortable seating and great views. Staff are most helpful and friendly. Booked a trip to the Sagrada with them as you get a time to go in without having to wait in the very, very, very long queues. Hotel near lots of designer shops with lots of places to eat. 15 minute walk to La Rambla. Tourist bus stops just around the corner from the hotel. I

Pros: Loved the quiet and peaceful atmosphere throughout the hotel. You relax the moment you walk through the doors.
Cons: Could not have asked for anything more than we got.
Location: Perfect location. Plenty of restaurants and terrific shopping. Located on a side street in a neighborhood that is a little less hectic than the city
Superb hotel! Quiet location, great food and attentive staff.
