    Location (close to Liceu station), free WLAN in hotelrooms, friendly staff, clean rooms, modern TV (only Spanish/Catalan channels), all day/night access with badge/card (when arriving you'll have to ring the bell to be let in, I first walked away because the door didn't open and I thought it was Siesta time ;o) )

    all not a problem for us. but if you don't speak spanisch at all it could be a bit difficult as they speak only little english, if you're used to sleeping with open windows it might be too loud (people shouting/arguing on street, not traffic), if you're an anxious person you might feel unsafe walking from tube to hotel at night because of the people standing around. no breakfast

    Very close to town center.

    Furniture, room design old and looks dirty.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We liked the location and cleaning of the room during our absence and the location near severak interesting ares in Barcelona (including places for sightseeing and shopping).

    In the bathroom there was no any hooks and even no hook for the water dush which made it very incovenient to wash by one hand all the time.

  • Older travelers

    The location of the hotel, whilst not in an ideal street (narrow/noisy/covered in graffiti) was very convenient for the Ramblas and therefore access to all tourist sites, restaurants, shops. No breakfast facilities in the hotel but an excellent cafe almost opposite which provided a good choice of croissants, freshly squeezed orange, coffee etc. There was also a beautiful & peaceful walled garden right opposite (Old Hospital) which had a lovely cafe/restaurant for excellent food if a little pricey but made up for with super staff. The hotel was immaculate with helpful staff and fresh laundry every day - a pleasant surprise - for some reason, not expected! However, having compared The Alba with other 3* hotels in the city I would not necessarily use it again or recomment it to others.

    Mainly its location. The street/alley on the corner of which the hotel is located is very noisy. Also, because the hotel is not air conditioned, it was impossible, due to the noise, to leave windows open at night and so our room became uncomfortably hot. It would be unbearable in the hot summer months. If possible - the addition of air conditioning would be a huge benefit. The hotel has obviously been recently refurbished and I am amazed that air conditioning was not installed during that improvement.

    Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Gave us a ferrero roche box as an easter present! Room was fine, clean and nicely laid out.

    Located in a slightly unpleasant area, tea/coffee making facilities would have been nice.

    We arrived at the hotel quite a bit earlier than check in time. The gentleman at the desk was most gracious to us both in allowing us to check in with all of our many bags early and also allowed us to stay in one of the rooms a bit longer as our airplane left quite a bit later than check in time. He was most courteous to us and very kindly helped us find on the map places we wanted to go and see.

    We really liked the hotel very much and were treated so well by the hotel staff. The only thing we didn't like about the hotel is the beds were very uncomfortable. We had a room with twin beds so it wasn't too bad but the party with us had a small bed that was extremely uncomfortable.

    the receptionist was very unfriendly and doesnt speak english at all

    Even if we had a few problems with the reservation, I really enjoyed to stay in Alba Hotel.The staff was very king.

    I guess it was one minus: it was a little bit hard to communicate with the staff because they spoke basic english.

    Best location. Great staff. Very clean (and we are not so easy to satisfy).

    They do have free Wi-Fi but no free internet spot (we don't carry a laptop). No head shower.

    no hook for the shower thing I had to hold it in my hand

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Small personable hotel just 3 blocks off La Rambla St. with small surrounding cafes and coffee, pastry & wine bars.

    The floors are marble and make noise when moving your chairs around. And the walls have almost no noise insulation from other rooms and hallways.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Friendly staff. Short walking distance from las ramblas. Room was very clean and I am fussy about that. Fresh clean towels and sheets everyday.

    Although the hotel is in a convenient location the street outside is noisey and dangerous (prostitutes ect.) Be careful and watch your belongings coming too and from. Rooms are also very small and very dated. I got the trip for my boyfriend as a weekend trip and when we arrived at the hotel...I was embarrased as it looked very low budget!

    I had booked a single room for my stay but my daughter came with me last minute. The hotel management rearranged the bookings to accommodate us.

    Noisy from the street below but that's what happens if you want a city central base.

    The only good thing about alba was location

    The hotel is located in the beginning of a very bad area with prostitutes and mafia. The room was soooo ugly and we were freezing in the night cause you couldn't switch of the aircondition The rooms are so cheap that many prostitutes use it with there customers. I felt unsave at the hotel. We only went to our room when we needed to sleep. I will never sleep here again.

  • Group of friends
    3.2

    Although the hotel and my room were clean, my room did not have a double bed, only a small single bed. The only chair was an uncomfortable wooden one. If I was 3' tall the bath would have been a tight fit. The lack of amenities such as breakfast and meal facilities / a restaurant, or a bar or room service and also air conditioning that worked, made a 2 week stay very tedious. The only choice was really to leave the room to eat when really after a long day, a quiet room service meal was all that was required. I would say that the Alba Hotel is excellent for backpackers, but for business travellers on anything other than an extremely short stay (1day) I would not recommend it.
