When I walked into Alma, I felt that I had entered a special place. Perhaps it was the minimal grey and white design that encapsulates the space, the hanging installations in the lobby, or the elegant and soothing demeanor of the receptionist. Whatever it was, I felt a sense of simmering down. Alma is a very grown up hotel. Classy, modest and great for more mature travelers. Discretion is so essential here that photos are entirely forbidden. The family owned hotel really paid attention to every detail meticulously, with each of the 70 rooms only accessed through a swanky key device - the guest's fingerprint. Upon entering the room, I was impressed with the intensity of the silence. All in all, this place has a special character, class and finesse like no where else I’ve visited. Their Mediterranean restaurant had one of the best sea bass tartar's I've ever had.

From the second I walked into the aptly named Alma Barcelona (Barcelona Soul), I was treated like royalty, from the friendly welcome of the doorman to the reception staff and the concierge who bent over backwards to help me. Inside oozes luxury with its tranquil atmosphere, dark walls and soft lighting. Its swish museum-like central area is a large atrium, filled with hanging artwork and a library-like breakfast room, leading out onto a secret garden – ideal for unwinding after a busy day around the city. The room itself was one of the biggest I’ve seen in Barcelona with polished wooden floors, an open-plan bathroom with dividing screen and a huge comfy bed. The best part was yet to come – when I looked out of the window I could see the iconic chimneys on the rooftop of Gaudí’s famous La Pedrera building. And yet there was more – downstairs I discovered a lavish spa area complete with indoor pool, hammam and sauna – the perfect haven away from the bustle of central Barcelona.

What an outstanding place. You would never say, walking from outside, that this is a gem. Definitely a unique hotel, with a big, gorgeous garden where you can have breakfast or toast with a drink to your trip! During the summer the rooftop terrace is open too. I walked in while they were installing a piece by an artist (that looked like a giant Calder "Mobiles") and I was amazed by the way it worked with the room, giving it a artsy appeal. The hotel has a classic structure and the entire main room is very classy, nothing is left to the case. The light comes in the lobby from the glass ceiling and shines all over the place giving a delicate color to everything. You are in a road very close to the famous Passeig de Gracia, but you can enjoy the quiet pleasure of an hidden spot.

It doesn’t look particularly impressive from the outside, as 5-star hotels go, but the sleek interiors of the Hotel Alma (‘Soul Hotel’) provide sweet respite from the at times overwhelming bustle of Barcelona. Just a block away from Gaudí’s La Pedrera, the hotel sits in an upmarket location – in fact, the window displays of Louis Vuitton gleam at you as you step out its front door. The décor is modern and ultra-minimalist, and the rooms even have their own foyer (and fingerprint access!), adding an extra sense of privacy.
