I have chosen this hotel many times for my visits to Barcelona. The staff is excellent and it feels like home. this visit I was very impressed with some of the breakfast upgrades.Comment of L. Jacqueline , United States the 2014-08-19
"Great place but expensive "
I liked this hotel at La Rambla. The front desk staff are very friendly and very helpfull. Parking inside the hotel is too expensive, so i recommend to get to the hotel by taxi and do not worry about parking...
"I would go back in a heartbeat"
My husband and I stayed at Le Meridien with our two boys, ages 16 and 19 for 5 nights around Christmastime. First, the hotel's location is really great, walkable to just about anything in the city. Second, the staff was wonderful, from the front desk folks to the Bruno the concierge who gave us phenomenal restaurant recommendations, to the entire hotel staff. Finally, the hotel itself was great. Super comfortable beds; great shower pressure; roomy spaces (we had 2 junior suites); wonderful turn-down service; contemporary, spacious bathrooms; and a big, flat screen tv (which we didn't watch but it was nice to know we could.) I loved it and loved Barcelona. So much to do over the holidays and great weather (in the mid-high 50s the entire week.) A wonderful trip made better by staying at Le Meridien. BTW, we also stayed at Meridien in London and felt equally enthusiastic about it. A great hotel all around.
"Hands down the best place to stay while in Barcelona!"
This is absolutely one of the best places to stay while in Barcelona. Few things that really worked for us (1) Proximity to La Rambla and other key attractions (2) Comfortable luxury rooms with all the amenities (3) Reasonable price. Essentially, it provides the two key ingredients which you need on a vacation i.e. central location and a safe comfortable place. Pretty much all the key attractions like La Rambla, Sagrada Família, Gothic Quarter, Casa Batlló, Casa Milà are very, very close and easily reachable from this hotel. That was hands down the major plus with this hotel. Few things that could have been better - (1) The staff, manager was less accommodating of some of the requests that we had - left baggage request, some room configuration needs. But I presume those were not accommodated for valid reasons. (2) Would have been great to have a breakfast buffet included at the price that we paid. In any case, it became a non-issue for us as most of the eateries were literally next door. In-spite of some of the shortcomings, the positives associated with the hotel outweigh everything. If I were to visit Barcelona again, I will definitely stay again at Le Meridian.
"Great Service,Hotel, but kind of small"
Great view we had the junior suite , housekeeping outstanding! , close to everything , Barcelona is a small city you could walk it , great location. Very expensive hotel even if the service is great. Breakfast was good ,
Reception staff very accommodating and friendly. Wife and I arrived early around 11:00 am and were able to check us in. Rooms are decent size but slightly dated. Bathroom a very good size. Location of the hotel right on Rambla though we could not hear the busyness of the streets Would stay here againb
