Perfectly placed little hotel with great view over the university square. Right next door to a metro stop and walkable to all the main sites. Staff were lovely too. Great breakfast place below the hotel - Juice Dudes - with lovely coffee.

My partner and I had an amazing experience at this hotel. We stayed 7 nights and it felt like home away from home. The hotel is very trendy and aesthetically beautiful. It’s also very clean; both the common areas and the rooms. I was so surprised how comfortable the beds were! I slept very every night. I got better sleeps than being in my own bed! The showers were also incredible. They used new waterfall shower heads with amazing water pressure. It was a very therapeutic experience having a shower. I was compelled to mention it because showering felt luxurious! The rooftop restaurant is also incredible. The food is very delicious and the view of the city is breathtaking. The only critique I have is that the food at the rooftop restaurant felt overpriced. We dined at many high-end restaurants during our stay which had high price points. The rooftop restaurant’s prices were even higher - and the serving sizes were much smaller - than some of the fine dining we had in the city. This is something I would keep in mind. It’s worth the experience, though. You’re probably paying for the views. The only other critique I have is that the housekeeping staff never refilled our coffees and teas, which was disappointing because it was nice to wake up and make a quick coffee/tea before heading out. Overall, we had an amazing stay and would definitely stay again! Highly recommended.

This is a lovely hotel based in the heart of the city. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, with a good sized bathroom with complimentary shower items. The service at reception was friendly and helpful. They is a rooftop bar where you can get food and drink, it is comfortable with reasonably priced drinks. However, the staff here were unfriendly and rude when they realised we only wanted drinks, snatching plates off the table and sighing when waiting for our order, which put us off returning.

Overall a lovely experience and we would stay here again.

From the moment I arrived, I knew it was going to be an entertaining stay. The man working when I arrived, I think his name was Bruno, really went above and beyond to satisfy my needs, start to finish. I accidentally booked a single room, I knew that was not going to be big enough for my time at Sonder as I was checking in. Managed to convince the front desk to upgrade me to a larger room with plenty of space. The bed was the perfect balance of softness for sleeping and firmness for positioned support. I had a beautiful balcony and large open shower.. couldn’t have asked for a better room. Multiple occasions I needed help with something, the staff was always there to provide me the answers and the services I needed at that time, 24/7. What a problem solver Bruno was! The hotel even followed up after I checked out to make sure I was 100% satisfied. If that isn’t 5 star service, I don’t know what is.

There was a girl there (who’s name I can’t remember, started with an S) who was also very helpful when I thought I lost a sentimental piece of jewelry. She helped me call the cab company to make a missing report, helped me put my mind at ease etc. Of course I found it in the end!

The only negative was when I attempted to extend my stay, they were fully booked and didn’t kick out another guest to let me extend ;)

We loved our stay at Sonder. The location is great - it is close to the city centre but the area really feels local and not so touristic, which we loved. The room was beautiful and clean and the rooftop restaurant is the best. The airport bus stop is directly in front of the hotel, so you have super quick and cheap access to the airport. Would definitely come back here next time.

The location is very convenient - from airport the airport bus A1/A2 stop right at the location (just few minutes walk). Just across the street there is métro line 1/2. Very walkable distance to lot of tourist attractions.

The room is very minimal setup but very functional, love the rain shower :)
Every day the room is well cleaned and kept tidy. Staff are very friendly as well.

Did not try the rooftop restaurant/bar but the view is nice over the Plaça de la Universitat.

This was one of my worst hotel experiences. I’m always hopeful when I enter the lobby of a hotel I’m staying at but this time I felt a bit of concern. The lobby usually indicates the level of care for the hotel and the people that great you are an indication of care for you and professionalism of the staff.

When we entered the lobby we could see that it was worn and tattered that was not the sign I was hoping for. We were met by a nice young woman that while nice not very professional. I felt like I had entered the lobby of a hostel. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with staying at a hostel. The problem is that when you pay for a hotel, you should get a satisfactory hotel experience. That includes professional management and facilities managed at a professional level.

When we arrived to our room my initial worry was realized. Right as I entered I could see black mold growing on the wall at the entry to the bathroom (see photo). This is simply terrible and is telling of the level of care this facility gets. When I complained I got a response that this would be looked into quickly. A departure from the realty that it has been growing for months and no one had done anything about it.

My room 510 was located just below the roof top bar/restaurant, which by the way has the rudest and seemingly snobbiest staff I’ve seen at a place that is really very unremarkable. The view not great, the food not remarkable, the service just ok, the hosts staff rude and snobby.

The location of my room in relation to this restaurant is important because all night you could hear chairs being dragged across the floor until well past midnight. Pretty annoying to say the least.

This hotel was terrible for me. It seems that many others have enjoyed their stay here. Perhaps most of them have been able to escape the terror of room 510.

When we arrived in Barcelona for our four night / three day first visit our pre-booked taxi failed to pick us up. Not to worry, we hopped on the Aerobus which took us to Universitat, just outside the hotel - perfect.
We used the Metro station just across the road on day one to visit the Segrada Familia, Cathedral and La Rambla (10euros for 8 journeys passing the ticket back through the barrier to give 4 journeys each).
The official tourist bus routes (red and blue) , which we used on days 2 and 3, started a 5 minute walk away at the main Catalunya square (at the top of La Rambla on the edge of the Gothic quarter).
The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The staff very friendly.
The Restaurant in the hotel (separate company) was really nice for breakfast (limited continental) and when we ate there on the first night.
We found several other really nice places to eat within a 5 - 10 minute stroll of the hotel just off the Catalunya square.

We spent three nights here after a 10-day cruise and were delighted with our experience. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance of many landmarks and exciting neighborhoods. It is also right next to the Universitat Metro Station so you can easily access public transport if you don't want to walk.

The room was clean, comfortable, and relatively spacious (by European standards). We arrived early and stored our bags at the hotel while we wandered the city. The check-in process was simple and efficient because we had pre-paid for the room and used the Sonder app to upload all of our documents.

The rooftop restaurant offered great food and excellent sights. Because it is next to some of the University of Barcelona facilities, there is lots of activity and many bars/restaurants/shopping in the area.

Checkout was also very easy and the front desk fetched a cab to take us to the airport. From the checkout at 6:00 am to checking out bags and getting through security at BCN took less than 90 minutes.

If you are on a business trip and are looking for a business center and fitness center, you are out of luck. This hotel did not offer either, but we got more than enough exercise walking through the city. Overall, we would happily stay there again.

We’ve been traveling to six different cities, so this luxurious room was a very pleasant surprise! Big enough for two easily, with a comfortable bed, sheets and pillows, nice views from the window, and all completely updated. Thoughtful amenities are included, like the refrigerated water cooler in the hallway, easy access to charging, and good Wi-Fi. Breakfast on the roof was not included but it was well worth 16 euros with all kinds of fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, cappuccino, etc. Nice service by the front desk staff as well. Highly recommended!
