Great experience at the hotel. It was my second stay. The first time, not long after the opening, there were some glitches for which I had complained a little bit, and now that we came back they really took care of us to ensure everything went perfectly. Rooms are very nice, most importantly service was absolutely perfect. Location is also great. I was afraid it would be a bit far from center for a touristic stay, but actually it's perfect. On the beach and still within walking distance of many sights / shopping and restaurant areas. And to go further away in Barcelona, metro station is just 5 minutes walk. Definitely hope to be back soon.

Nice stay at the Barcelona Sofitel. Great friendly staff on arrival- most helpful. Nice clean spacious rooms well maintained. Lovely restaurant/bar. Slight disappointment booked a sea view room and you can see the view from the photos - slight view only.
