The Hotel Princesa Sofia is a luxury hotel in the heart of Barcelona, offering a luxury restaurant, pool, and high-end services and amenities. The 500 rooms and suites offer magnificent city views, as well as air conditioning, minibar, safe, television, and free WiFi.
If you are doing business or going to a Football game in Barcelona this is the hotel for you. This hotel is in the business section and is far from everything. Yes there is the Barcelona BusTuristic but even that has bad connections so you end up walking back to hotel, which in the end you realize you needed a taxi. Public transport and the value of this hotel does not make sense. Hotel is dated, our bathtub did not drain properly and the shower curtain was in the way of showering - gross! Beds comfortable. Carpeted rooms. Breakfast was decent.
One big positive - Staff at front desk and concierge were amazing - they saved the stay.
Would not stay here again - even if it was only for a Football game. Sorry :\

Great location away from all the hustle of the city center. Metro a few blocks away. About 20 min Metro ride. Staff is OUTSTANDING! They really go up and beyond especially Luis Pena, Pedro Moron and Oriol Carvajar. I told the staff I was going to Ibiza after my trip here and the next day they printed out a map of Ibiza and went over can't miss places. I would def stay here again. Oh, I came in early and was able to get a early check in which was nice after a long flight!
An excellent stay

A wonderful hotel with an excellent staff. Club level is the finest we've stayed at with a concierge present on the floor for advice and help. A subway ride from the city center but that's an experience everyone should take advantage of. It's the best way to enjoy and learn a city and its people.
Brilliant hotel, convenient location!

This is a excellent hotel. Excellent value for money. Conveniently located close to the Maria Cristina metro and the tram stop which gives you easy access to the city centre as well as the airport. We were greeted by a nice receptionist Carlos who catered to our request and gave us a room on the 7th floor with a view of Camp Nou and university. They were also very helpful about the various things we could see and do around Barcelona and provided us with maps and guides.
The most remarkable part of our stay here was the service that we received. Everyone from room service , receptionist to the waiter in the restaurant were all cheerful and happy to help. I would class the service as top-notch and would rate it more than 5 stars if I could.
The room had everything we needed like a mini-fridge, aircon, blow dryer, iron , locker ,fresh towels everyday, bathrobes, and toiletries. Only thing the room missed was a kettle which would have been helpful.
We had a sumptuous buffet breakfast in the morning with array of things to choose from which was great as well and every morning we were greeted with the pleasant hola from a waiter who was always ready to pour coffee into our empty cups.
The swimming pool is an added bonus and they provide you with towels and swimming caps at no extra cost. They also have spa facilities at a nominal cost.
All in all, our stay in Barcelona was made all the more special because we stayed here and we know where to go when we are next in town. See you soon.
Great city view.

The room was not very modern but it was large and very comfortable. We did get early check in and that was very nice of the staff to look after us. Breakfast was very good and staff were helpful and seemed to enjoy looking after guests. Thanks.
