We stayed a night here before our cruise. The location is very close to the metro access (5 min walk). Everything was clean and nice. We were part of a very large group but the staff was efficient and organized to handle the volume

We spent a week in Barcelona on a football tour for my 12 year old son and chose Princesa Sofia principally because of its close location to the Nou Camp and to the games. We spent 1 week on the 18th floor with club room access. The lower floors of the hotel are being renovated but you would hardly know....

Staff is amazing and speaks multiple languages. Breakfast is amazing with a big variety of different food choices. The hotel club is great with snacks, drinks and wifi. The rooms are spacious and cleaning's great. You have a shopping centre close by but you might wanna take a taxi to Passeig de Grácia.

This hotel was lovely with really comfortable rooms and it was clean. Service was great and breakfast was excellent. The hotel is currently having renovations done which will make it even better when finished. It is centrally located with an short cab ride from the airport and to the centre of Barcelona.

My son and I were on our way home from the airport (he is 8yrs old) and since we still had the three hour drive up to Andorra (approx 3hrs on mountain roads) and I was quite tired after a long day of traveling, I decided to pull over to the first hotel we came past. As it turned out,...
