As per above really. View over Camp nou was fun, but my room was pretty dated. Restaurant only served buffet which was a bit worrying but it was really good! Allinall good. Moved on to more modern Universal now which is smaller and has no restaurant but still better in my view.

Spent 3 nights at this hotel, thankfully we were not disappointed. Decor in room is traditional and can be perceived as tired. Airconditioning in our room was a bit noisy but worked well. If you dont mind staying a distance away from the bustle of the city this hotel is ideal, however if you want to be able to walk...

This is a hotel where I enjoyed everything. Superb room, extremely nice and polite staff, excellent service comparing to other five stars hotels we have stayed in. I do not know if it is recommended for families with children, I think it is more couples and business trips oriented.

Stopped a couple of nights in the Princess Sofia, but didn't see much as busy business trip . Room would be excellent if it had tea making facilities - I know, bloody English are hard to please! You can order as room service, but would prefer the freedom. The breakfast was nice, but Bacon stringy and no museli - again,...

We stayed at the Club floor of this excellent 5 star hotel. The hotel can suite both business and famili travelers. Staff at the Club floor concierge are friendly and extremely professional. SPA area offers a great escape and an opportunity to recharge from the city sightseeing.

We are a family of 5, with children ages 17, 15 and11. The hotel was good value for money, giving us adjoining double rooms and an extra single bed free of charge. The hotel was comfortable, breakfast was excellent and all staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed using the swimming pool each morning. We were very happy.

We stayed here prior to a cruise for two nights. This is a large hotel on one of the big roads out of Barcelona, not walking distance, but the metro is no more than a block away along the well lit busy and safe area. Lots of coffee bars and restaurants too, with a shopping centre/ department store near the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The first 5* hotel in the city, this emblematic luxury retreat forms part of the history of Barcelona and bristles with tales around national and international royalty and important figures from the world of politics, culture and entertainment who have been amongst its guests. Perfectly located on the famous Avinguda Diagonal - in the noble financial district of the city - it is only a 5 minute walk away from Camp Nou football stadium, home of the legendary FC Barcelona, and a mere 12km from the airport. Its 500 timelessly elegant rooms are all exterior-facing and offer - from the 9th floor up - magnificent panoramic views of the Catalan capital. ... more   less
