Alma is really well located in Barcelona. The hotel is modern, sleek and very well appointed. Excellent breakfast (not included). Very friendly and professional staff. Big rooms and bathrooms. Surprised it is not more highly ranked!

We stayed at the Alma for four nights last week and we absolutely loved it. The staff are extremely attentive, helpful, and have excellent recommendations for local things to do - especially restaurants. The rooms themselves are stylish and minimalist, but with very comfortable beds and a nice lounge chair. We had a room facing the courtyard because we wanted... More

Location is perfect- beautiful part of the city, close to everything. Staff was incredibly helpful, making dinner reservations, calling cabs, booking tickets. Rooms were large and comfortable. Breakfast buffet and room service were very good. Pool is shallow, more to relax in then to swim but my 11 year old still loved going every day. Would recommend 100%

We spent i weekend in Barcelona and stated at Alma hotel. Great hotel with perfect service and good location in center of BC. Quiet and stylish. Breakfast is expensive but there are cafes and bakeries just around the corner. When visiting Barcelona this hotel is a very good choice.

Alma is a great hotel. It was comfortable, convenient, the staff was amazing and helpful. The hotel is within a 15 minute walk of Sagrada Familia and Las Ramblas. Enjoy the bar or restaurant at the hotel or at a nearby cafe! I would stay again in a heartbeat!

Perfectly located. Is a great hotel to get around, subway close by and easy access to all tourist attractions if that's what you're looking for. Terrace with a wonderful views but expensive drinks. Very helpful and kind staff.

Very luxurious and well appointed, set in the heart of Barcelona. Stunning hotel with excellent staff. It is not cheap but is certainly worth it. Try the spa and gym. Rooms are spacious, especially liked the bottle of Cava bubbly waiting in the room.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
