The Alma Hotel is housed in an elegant building dating from the early 20th century. Its location close to the Passeig de Gràcia, in a spot which makes it possible to realise Cerdà’s original idea of opening up to the city, is one of its strong points. This hotel makes a private place public, sharing a magnificent outdoor garden typical of the Eixample area with the people of Barcelona, and offering them a different view of the development of the city.
With 72 rooms, some of them are contemporary in design with views of the interior garden, while others are more classic in nature and overlook the Carrer Mallorca. The latter group of rooms are inspired by the typical Eixample apartment, with a certain French air which is also very much part of Barcelona. Moreover, no key is needed to get in: your digital fingerprint is sufficient.
Among other areas, highlights include the Stark Pearson room, a multi-function hall for private events and meetings with 70m2 of floor space, equipped with the latest sound, image and communication facilities; the wellness area - with a heated pool, hammam and sauna - and gym. It also has a large roof terrace covering 800m2, located at the nerve centre of the building and offering 360º views over the city, with La Pedrera and the Sagrada Família visible in the foreground, then the Agbar tower, Tibidabo and Montjüic, and in the background the sea, to escape from the bustle of the city.
A Mediterranean restaurant, “El Jardín del Alma”, where diners can enjoy a gastronomy rooted in the most exquisite international cuisine, with local touches and prepared using the finest ingredients selected with the highest professional skill.
With our iPad / iPhone app, our clients have access to a wide range of services and options, among them the possibility of seeing our Room Service menu, booking a table in one of the hotel’s restaurants, viewing and booking spa treatments and requesting porter services. Available in several languages and accessible 24 hours a day, the app enables guests to place their orders and make requests whenever suits them, allowing them to make the most of their valuable time with Alma.
