Fodor's Expert Review Alexandra Barcelona Doubletree by Hilton

Carrer Mallorca 251, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08008, Spain

Compared with the pure mid-Eixample Moderniste buildings around it, the facade of the Alexandra can feel a bit featureless; the best of the hotel lies within this dependable lodging option (part of the Hilton group). The urban contemporary lobby boasts lacquered surfaces, expanses of wood feature walls, comfortable sofas and armchairs, and high-tech lighting, and attractive rooms are furnished with dark wood furniture and headboards, crisp white linens, and parquet floors; some have balconies that face the street, others face the interior garden and pool. The Solomillo steak restaurant, with seating on the patio-terrace, caters to serious appetites.

PROS

  • Excellent location
  • Great steak restaurant Solomillo on-site
  • Pool open daily 10 am–8 pm

CONS

  • No connecting rooms
  • Rooms are narrow
  • Black corridor walls on guest room floors can be overpowering
