Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin Another awesome Starwood property
Modern rooms with chic lobby. Was able to choose Breakfast as my platinum arrival gift for my wife and me!
Amazing location: right off the rambla yet not noisy (even from our second floor room). Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful new bathrooms and amenities in the rooms.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MindyBD Great Location for Sightseeing
The Las Ramblas location is a great base for sightseeing though out Barcelona. Most sightseeing tours leave from a plaza that is a very short walk from the hotel. The rooms are very nice, great bathrooms with tv to watch from the bathtub. The only disappointment in the room was the beds - two singles pushed together for form a king. Not very comfortable and not great sheets. I have to say I was on the 2nd floor and was worried about noise, but it was not an issue at all. Staff were helpful, but it is a crowded hotel and you often need to wait to get any attention.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anna1016 The hotel concierge is rude and unhelpful.
The hotel is centrally located and quite comfortable.
The WiFi is primitive, you have to register each time you want to access the internet instead of having a 24 hour access after the login.
The concierge at the hotel was extremely rude, seemed to be spending his time making arrangements for a tour operator instead of dealing with guests directly, and failed to make a restaurant reservation that I had asked for.

Once again, SPG hotels has delivered what is promised: a great hotel in a great location. We liked this place so much we will return for a longer stay next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dickie45 Very good Hotel and location
Everything about this hotel is top rate except the service in the bar. Very slow in getting to make an order and then it took a long time to get drinks.
Staff needs to be trained.
Even with this I'd stay here again. The reception staff and the room service were excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by measy Great with some considerations
Location was great. Hotel staff was excellent. I really, REALLY, did not like the bathrooms because of the glass walls....totally bazaar. We also hated the night light. We could never get the room totally dark.
Otherwise all was good.

Great location; wonderful breakfast; large room and bathroom; friendly staff. Only suggestion is that the bed was too low and soft. Need to replace the beds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by STNY As gold and platinum guests it is disappointing
Conceirge service was either not on (Thurs afternoon and night), gave insufficient information ( venue over sells tickets for show, therefore you must go early or you have to stand), too general on directions, not upto SPG standards by a long shot.
No significant emmenities for SPG guests

Everything was fine. The restaurant the concierge recommended was not good. Every staff member was happy and more than willing to help you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by docalex One of the best in the world
This hotel offers the perfect blend of old world charm and modern comforts and decor. We have been fortunate in life to have stayed in the best hotels all over the world and Le Meridien is one of our top 5 at any price. The service and comfort are hard to beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hello123456 is nice
I had problems with the air conditioning, it was cooling down although it was not needed, in fact made it too cold.
The Wifi for Smartphones did not work.
What is SPG?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raffster Rocky start but great substance to this hotel
This hotel almost hits the mark in so many critical areas but falls short in one area but only just.
The good includes, breakfast which is first class and the staff which are friendly, helpful, very courteous, and go out of their way to help guests whose Spanish is limited to only a few words. The concierge in particular is a gem! The fitness centre gets high marks ,as does the lovely little coffee bar they have in the foyer.
The location is excellent , right on La Rambla, close to the underground and all major attractions. Nice little additions such as free tickets to the museum of modern art and coffee for two in the foyer.
With a few tweaks this hotel can be one of the best 5 star hotels in Barcelona.
Reception is what needs most attention. After a long flight , pls don't make guests wait in a disorganised shambles to be served. During peak times, there is no line and frustrated guests who have been waiting for 30 to 45 minutes start pushing their way forward. This is the worst way to introduce the hotel to new guests. Fix this and you will have happy guests from the time they walk in to the time they walk out.
Enjoyed all aspects of this hotel and have booked again and hopefully reception has been improved by then.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PamnJ2 Little value for the price
Considering we paid what we consider "top price" for our room, we did not receive value. Upon arriving & finally settling into our room, the toilet & sink were non-functional. After several visits, the plumber was able to fix the problem (over 3 hrs). We were there for several days & after the 1st couple, we had to call & ask for missing items (face cloths, water bottles, etc.) regularly. The lobby is very limited space-wise & often the wait for the concierge service was 20-30 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzanne58 Location is perfect
We had excellent service at this property, however the platform bed was uncomfortable and the 2 choices of pillows were disappointing. The room was a descent size. Concierge department was very helpful. Truly the best location right on La Rambla.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ojaibilly Staff is incredible
From the moment we walked through the door we were struck by the attention of the staff. From the upgrade Laura gave us to check in to the speed with which routine results like ice or pillows were handled was impressive. The buffet is excellent and the restaurant and bar staff were also way above. This was my. 20 th check in this year to a Starwood property-- probably the best. As a Platinum I felt completely taken care of. Great hotel!

Don't think i could pick a better location right in the middle of La Rambla --- right between the marina area, the old Gothic city and the fashionable shopping area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lgordonal Right on La Rambla
The staff, location and amenities make this hotel stand out in several different ways. From the moment we dropped our luggage to the time we rolled our bags down to the very accessible metro, I felt like I was an honored guest.

Excellent location in the heart of old town and right on LaRambla. Large suite but with few storage options and odd layout overall. Would have traded two phones, mirror TV and a sofa for some hooks and drawer and hanger space. Also, only coffee available in room was hot water and instant. GHASTLY for a hotel of ANY stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FqntFLtraveler33 Great location, great staff and nice rooms
Located directly on the La Rambla this hotel has an excellent location in the center of Barcelona. Easily stroll down the La Rambla or over to the adjacent Gothic Quarter. The staff was very professional and pleasant. I was fortunate to receive a platinum upgrade to a beautiful suite. I would highly recommend this beautiful hotel.
