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...

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...

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...

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.

Coming from Asia, the size of the Hotel and the size of the Room are not what we're used from a 5-Star Hotel :-) But anyway the location is very good, not too far from Airport, close to two big shopping malls and directly located on the Road Train a easy start to go Downtown, Starbucks,some nice restaurants and Bars...

Nice hotel, clean and tidy, rooms where fine, only the pool was shut which was a shame, gym is fairly basic but enable a decent workout. Hotel seems to be having an external refurb at the moment, but that did affect my stay. I would stay again, nice friendly atmosphere.
