The Almanac stands out in a city with great hotels. I have stayed at The Majestic, The One, Alma, and The Monument — all really nice hotels. The Almanac, however, stands out. The design is so soothing and everything smells great. The toiletries are excellent. The rooms are beautiful. All of them. And, I’ve stayed in almost every type of room. They really go above and beyond with service too. The entire staff is incredibly helpful and go out of their way to fulfill any request.

Visited Almanac this week for a 3 night stay with my boyfriend. We arrived about 11:30am and were told our room was ready - great news after a 4am start which we really appreciated! Our room was 603, an Almanac room which ended up being worth the extra £50 a night given the weather wasn’t the best and we spent more time in the room than normal. The room was stunning, well-decorated and classy, with a luxurious feel to it. The bathroom was also nice, and was well-equipped. The shower pressure was amazing - we’re already missing it!! The view from the room was also lovely, and the addition of the window seat was great for people-watching. We loved the high-tech touches such as the automatic blinds which raised when you entered your room, and the tablet which had information about the hotel on it. You could also contact concierge through a mobile phone in the room, however we did try this once to ask for restaurant recommendations and provided our email address but no one got back to us. The TV is massive but it did not have Sky Sports News as it said in the TV guide. The black-out blinds were truly black-out and blocked out the light all night and morning long. The tablet also claims a turndown service is provided in the evening, however this did not happen for any of our three nights which was slightly disappointing and misleading. The bed was very comfy and was huge! The rooftop bar was lovely, it was raining for the first two days so we had to sit inside, however we managed to sit outside on our final night and the view is just stunning. The drinks were of good quality and we were also given 2 free welcome drinks which was a nice touch. Breakfast was good, but could definitely be improved. There was no English breakfast tea the whole time we were there, and no cereal either which you just wouldn’t expect from a 5 star hotel. Service was very slow on two of the three mornings, it was difficult to get anyone’s attention and we ended up being there for almost an hour on our first morning. The fresh juices were delicious and the hot food was tasty. My scrambled eggs were average at best. We didn’t use the pool due to the weather, but we used the sauna and steam room in the basement. Tip: make sure you tell reception you are going to use the sauna as they need to turn it on and it takes about an hour to heat up fully. The steam room wasn’t a proper steam room either, and barely worked. There are also 4 loungers where you can relax, although the website states they are heated which they are not. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely return given the fabulous location (5 minute walk from Las Ramblas and Plaça de Catalunya) and luxurious rooms, we just would perhaps not pay extra for breakfast. Restaurant tips for BCN: Bastaix, La Cova Fumada, Bodega Biarritz, Bar Cañete, Bobby’s Free (bar). And go to the Palau Dalmases flamenco show!!

The hotel is really nice, style and design is second to none. Location is very good however it is located on a very busy road and despite the sound proofing street noise can be heard in the rooms. The real let down is the service, we spent two nights and at each request we had we were left deeply disappointed. They would not let us check in a minute earlier than the 3pm check-in time, or check-out a minute later than noon, despite the hotel was clearly not fully booked. I requested a room at higher floor if available, so obviously first floor it was! While waiting for check-in we asked for a glass of water, and were asked to wait in the seating area so they could bring it to us, but nobody came for over twenty minutes until I had to approach another member of staff. So overall for this price range and expectations I will most likely not be back.

Dear 520riccardot, I am very sorry to be informed of your disappointment with the hotel service and that your request for a room on a high floor was not attended. We try our best to attend all guest requests, early check ins, late check outs, high floors, special views , but unfortunately we not always can attend them. On this occasion it was not because of occupancy but because we have been operating with less rooms than normal as we have been upgrading our floor carpets. I hope you can accept my apologies this time and maybe reconsider your decision staying with us on your next visit to Barcelona. Please do not hesitate in contacting me direct so I can help you in this matter, the Almanac team would be very grateful for a second chance Looking forward to welcoming you back Regards Michael Cleaver Rooms Director
