            The receptionist was very polite and updated as to a club room.the hotel has 18 floors but the elevators are more than enough.the room was pleasant and the bathroom clean and convienient.

            Staff was very friendly and attentive. Rooms have a nice size.

            That hotel guests are charged for the use of the swimming pool.

            staff were very friendly and accommodating.we were given an upgrade on arrival.rooms are clean and comfortable, nothing amazing but nice bathrooms. would imagine the standard rooms are pretty basic if ours was an upgrade.but spanish hotels are all like that. reception area lovely as you walk in the door, with beautiful fresh flowers. excellent securtiy. buffet breakfast was fabulous.

            you had to pay 12 euro to have access to pool, per day. but that included gym and sauna and sunloungers too. you could come and go as you please. we had the first and last day free for some reason. also if you wanted to eat lunch or dinner or room service is was very expensive. best to eat out

          • Couple
            5.0

            cant understand how hotel is 5 stars. hotel needs updating. prices of food and drink in hotel very expensive! however lady at reception very polite and helpful with v good English, also in close proximity to Nou camp which was a bonus as we were in Barcelona for a football match! Would be reluctant to revisit hotel!

          • Couple
            7.4

            Top professional staff. Extremely safe and good shopping district. 20 min. taxi drive to the airport (22 euro with airport fee and 2xluggage). Great views of the city from 16th floor. Impressive hall. City center is 10 min. away in metro. Cafe (*bucks) and restaurants (not Michelin) nearby. Great for a weekend stay to enjoy FCB - camp nou is 3 min away, actually you can almost see a match from the hotel roof ;)

            Five warn out stars. All the fascilities and prices you can expect at a 5 star hotel - no doubt. I would like to stress out that you shall not expect a new or recently refurbished hotel. We did not file a complaint, however expressed our lack of positive impression (wau effect) to the reception manager, who upgraded us with a very professional attitude "our mission is to satisfy you". The hotel will soon celebrate is 40th anniversary and its noticable or just represents the spanish mentality of "if its ugly, dont look at it". I just expected more "wau" from a 5 star hotel, sorry. I sincerely recommend renovating the hotel. Accidently my wife took a nose dive during a night strole due to broken tiles in the hotel driveway (loose tiles)

            All around great experience.

            On the Thursday, breakfast was moved to a conference room, service was poor and food categories were missing. I did not complain or look into why, too busy.

            Comfortable hotel with good and wide choice breakfast. Ideal location if you're going to the Nou Camp. Close to metro so easy to get to city centre. One of Barcelona's taller buildings, so you should get good views.

            It took 6 electronic door keys to get into the room! Double room was 2 single beds pushed together. Bar and restaurant are expensive for Barcelona

            The best is breakfast

            I didn´t like the rooms. They are old and need to be restored. I would say it´s a 3 stars hotel instead of a 5 stars as they pretend.

            I thought I chose one of the best rooms in the hotel, however I was bitterly disappointed, the floor the room was on was being refurbished and although our room was changed after a couple of days due to the noise created by the workmen there was no improvement since we were transferred down the hall. The hotel did give us a 20% discount however this was not enough, I feel that the floor which is part of the "Club" ie the more luxurious rooms should have been closed, the place was very shabby since the wallpaper was being replaced. I think that your company should have been informed, I feel I was misled and the money I paid was exceedingly high for what I got. Had I known I would not have chosen this hotel but another 5 star.

            The room was nice and clean, with open views from the window.

            During our stay, the hotel received a group of Indian travelers, and it seemed that their infrastructure collapsed. Even the elevators went havoc. Food service was affected, personnel were nervous, impatient. I understand busy situations in human services, but this seemed lack of training and organization.

            Staff quite attentive and spacious rooms.

            It was advertised as a spa hotel but you have to pay 12 euros to go to the spa... No breakfast included.. So it makes it quite expensive overall

            We found the Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel an ideal location for our city break. The twenty four hour reception services etc makes you feel very secure and we found the staff most welcoming and approachable. We opted for the buffet breakfast as part of our stay and it proved to be a very good choice - there was plenty of choice and no pressure to rush eating etc. We were well set up for the day after breakfast. The location of the Metro Station so close to the hotel was fabulous and we were advised by hotel staff to purchase a t-10 Card - an excellent piece of advice - very good value. While we aren't soccer buffs - its extremely close proximity to the stadium would make it an ideal location for those attending a soccer match. While the decor mightn't be the most modern in the bedrooms - we found they were very spacious and above all extremely clean and there was always plenty of hot water available. I would certainly return to the Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel.

            The only issue I would have with the Princesa Sofia Gran Hotel was that we booked on the understanding that there was a swimming pool & sports equipment- which there is but there is a daily charge of € 12 for usage of same. We certainly were under the impression at the time of booking that these facilities were included in the price, so it was a surprise to learn otherwise and honestly, we felt that € 12 was a very high charge for use of such facilities, when you are a guest of the hotel.
