Highly recommend to visit Mandarin Oriental Barcelona since it is the best service I have ever experienced! I had a solo trip and all the employees made my stay like home away from home, taking good care of me. Hats off to Maria del Mar for bringing my mood to the sky by organizing the amazing set up due to my celebration. Beatrice showed me everything in the hotel upon check-in so I never got lost and always knew what/where/when. The bar was such an experience and I have added one cocktail to my list of favorites - the staff just made it for me according to my personal preference! ♥️ The style of the hotel is breathtaking and I had a feeling that I was in a gallery or visiting an exhibition. The time flew like an eye blink and I have nothing to say but muchos gracias!

1st time at a Mandarin Oriental - An absolute treat. Staff (especially concierge) went over and beyond to assist us and help us in any way they could. Concierge made special effort to assist us getting a prescription for medicine that was accidentally left in the US - all at no charge. Wait staff in Blanc were attentive and more than willing to adjust for our dietary requests. Room was modern, clean and comfortable. Shower was outstanding as it had great water pressure AND instant, plentiful hot water. Breakfast assortment was more than sufficient. I would offer 2 suggestions as to breakfast. For Americans, the coffee was extremely weak and rather tasteless and not very hot. I would suggest better quality (and stronger) coffee and that it is served in thermal carafes (rather than individual china pots that cool down too quickly) which can be left at the table (alleviating the need for the server to constantly bring fresh, hot coffee). Hotel is in great central Barcelona location.. Many thanks for a great stay!
