Barcelona Hotels



Gran Hotel Princesa Sofía


At a Glance


  • comfortable and completely equipped for all your needs
  • near the Barcelona soccer stadium and only a 20-minute walk from Sarrià


  • far from the Gothic Quarter and the Eixample
  • some of the decor (like patterned wall-to-wall carpeting) can feel a little dated

Gran Hotel Princesa Sofía Review

Three decades ago, this was Barcelona's most modern luxury hotel. Today, however, because of its location—somewhat out of the way on Avinguda Diagonal near the Barcelona soccer stadium—this towering high-rise is not a top choice, because there are equally grand options with more convenient locations. However, when other options are booked, the comforts and commodities at the Princess Sofía are still unquestionably impeccable, with soothing guest rooms decorated in soft colors, a long list of facilities, and everything from shops to three different restaurants. The signature royal blue color makes its way around the hotel from the illuminated sign outside, to the cobalt-blue lamps in the rooms, to the tiles around the rooftop pool.
