Great locationPosted Aug 9, 2014
Pros: Everything, literally everything.
Location: Just off the main drag but in the heart of Barcelona. Once your in the hotel it is tranquil, quiet and very relaxing. Beautiful garden area.
I have never stayed in such a wonderful hotel. Everything about the hotel is class, from the decor, service, restaurant, room size and style. Staff were very engaging and well trained. Everything is done with style without any over the top fuss. Stayed in the hotel for three days, when my girlfriend and I return to Barcelona at some point in the future it will be at the Alma.

Enjoyable week in BarcelonaPosted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: The cleanliness of the room and helpfulness of the staff.
Location: We felt the hotel location was excellent. We were near the central tourist area, however, we also could easily get to other more out of the way areas
We enjoyed our stay in the hotel. Itl was in a good location for getting around in Barcelona. The hotel staff was excellent. They were very attentive to their guests. The hotel rooms were clean and and tidy. There was a limited minibar available. As the items were used, they were replenished, without cost. The room had a very good internet connection.

Stunning haven in middle of bustling BarcelonaPosted Jul 25, 2014
Fantastic staff, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Food fantastic, room very well appointed, spotless, fabulous. We enjoyed several days in Barcelona and retreating to the Alma at the end of each day was a total and welcome pleasure. Hotel has a calm elegance, a true haven.

Classy hotel in Gracia, accessible and uniquePosted Jul 24, 2014
Short distance from many Gaudi sights with a lovely rooftop bar/terrace (NOTE: closed Sun-Mon). Room was spacious and well equipped with complimentary mini bar and refilled daily. Staff muy amable y servicial! Small pool/sauna/gym in basement. Window overlooked courtyard restaurant. Breakfast seemed nice but overpriced. It's possible to walk from here to barrio gotic with gusto! Would definitely recommend/return if within budget.

Great hotel for Barcelona BreakPosted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: Staff, facilities, location
Location: Most of Barcelona is within walking distance or a short metro ride.
Alma is a 5* haven in the brilliant city of Barcelona. The staff were brilliant and the facilities good. Room was spacious, clean and well equipped. The roof top bar was fantastic. Highly recommend this.

Great place and great location!Posted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Great service, spa, size of room, down comforters, bed
Location: Both Gaudi houses were nearby and lots of good shopping. It was an upscale area.
We happen to start our vacation on July 1, which was a day for a city wide taxi strike. We took the bus with our luggage there and were really hot. They had cold water there and were easy to check in. We liked the large room and the modern style. Also liked the spa downstairs and the swimming pool. Liked the service. Our leaving flight was cancelled due to bad weather on the East Coast of the US. They let us call to United on their phone at reception for 45 minutes.

Close to perfectPosted Jul 3, 2014
With a very low profile on line and not entirely informative site I was a little concerned as to what I might be getting. I need not have worried. The front of house staff were excellent, the room spacious, clean, quiet and (at night) dark. A real plus was the courtyard restaurant - excellent food (if slightly limited menu) at a very reasonable price. Also a great location - very close to key Gaudi buildings. I would stay again.

Lovely hotel and well situatedPosted Jun 27, 2014
Great hotel and well situated in a good area but within walking distance of Las Ramblas and the Old Quarter. Pool very handy and the beds very comfortable. The staff were excellent, the airline had misplaced one of our bags and as soon we told the reception they were right onto it calling the airline and chasing them till they had recovered it. When leaving they also gave us some recommendations for tapas bars in Pamplona. Very helpful and pleasant as well. The Courtyard is also a nice quiet space for a relaxed tea or coffee.

A hidden gemPosted Jun 21, 2014
Cons: A full-length mirror would be nice.
Location: The hotel is close to La Pedrera and Casa Battlo (spelling?). The nearest Metro about 2 blocks. Many good tapas bars within walking distance.
Our 3-night stay at the Alma was just perfect for us. Our room was quiet, the bed comfortable and air-conditioning I could work! We had two meals in the outdoor part of the restaurant in peace and tranquillity. Every member of staff we met could not be faulted, were very friendly and helpful and enthusiastic. We plan to return.
