Las Ramblas Locale

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 3, 2014

The Le Meridien is a good option for those that are going to Barcelona and live in the US. The primary reason is that it is tied to Starwood Preferred Guest, which means you can stay on an award stay and pay much less than other hotels in the area. The hotel is beautiful, I was upgraded and enjoyed a room with a full balcony that I could have entertained 50-60 of my closest friends. I will definitely stay here again when I go back on a Tapas run.

Luxurious & Upscale Le Meridien Barcelona

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 1, 2013

After still being jetlagged from the transatlantic flight and from staying up all night in Madrid...
I was able to stay at this place for 1 night and what a luxury.

Nicely decorated rooms, blend between stylish and business-like, just like their target demographics. From what I remember, the bathroom floors are marble.

The bed and linens were about the best I've encountered. I had a hard time waking up from a short nap after check-in from the 1st morning flight from Madrid.

The room was a few floors up and had a nice view facing Las Ramblas. Did not hear the Ramblas crowd and noise in the late evening / early morning - a testament to the multiple pane windows and drapery. The ability of Le Meridien rooms to block noise was evident the next night as a room at another hotel on Ramblas did not do so well... and that room was facing a side street.

Staff is friendly and the guests when I stayed were mostly business people; no celebrities that day. Off the side of the lobby is a nice meet and greet / lounge area where the whole wall is glass facing a side street so you can people watch.

The hotel is worth it for the amenities and service. Definitely need to go outside of it in order to experience Spanish culture.

Directions: Located on the upper end of Las Ramblas near Plaza Catalunya. It's on the right hand side of the street as you walk towards the sea.

Stylish, good location, expensive

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

Stayed two nights in Dec 2007 in a double room on the fifth floor at an internet rate of € 250 PRPN, incl buffet breakfast (gtatravel.com) (compare and choose carefully, as many rates are offered without breakfast which is a high € 25 per person). Room was 5* standard, very modern design, well furnished and functional. Room was quiet inspite of extremely loud and busy neighborhood. During our stay the main lobby was unuseable due to refurbishment works. The side entrance and alternative lobby were functional, though rather small. A price reduction for the inconvenience would have been in order. Location is convenient, just corner of the Ramblas, close to a Metro station and numerous restarants/bars/entertainment/sights. Buffet breakfast was good. Extras (minibar) and internet access expensive. Service is 5* standard. Would recommend it again, provided you dont mind the price.

Unique Quality: Location; stylish interior design

Barcelona's Best Hotel

Le Meridian was excellent, and why not--it's expensive. We were able to stay there using a friends Starwood points, so it was beyond what I could normally afford. The service was impeccable, turn down every night with a chocolate, and beautiful Hermes toiletries. Outstanding!!! We got a room overlooking Las Ramblas, and roomate Kym loved to keep the window open to hear the sounds of the street. Arghhhhhh! After a long day of touring I want it to be quiet--but let's not go there with my review. When you DO close the window, the bed is soft, inviting, and a true retreat from the sound of the street.

Unique Quality: The beds have down mattress pads with duvet covers. Beautiful European contemporary styling. The bathrooms have the large disc shower heads--nice, but the bathroom walls are that hip frosted glass look. What can I say, I'm an old lady and like a little more privacy.

Stay in style in Barcelona

by written on April 18, 2004

I did not stay here but I did walk into to the hotel and it was absolutely beautiful. We also looked into staying here but it was way too expensive for us. If you've got the money, I can't see a better place than this to stay!

Unique Quality: Located in a 'primo' location on La Rambla

Directions: About halfway down La Rambla.
