Spacious bedrooms, superb service and suites with unique views of the Barrio Gitico - your Barcelona experience starts at Le Meridien! Located in the very centre of town on the world-famous Las Ramblas, minutes away from everything that makes Barcelona one of Europe's most exciting cities. Le Meridien Barcelona is often referred to as 'the star's hotel', as many world-famous personalities have crossed the threshold, including Pavarotti, Bruce Springsteen, Zubin Mehta, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Rostropovich and many more. The top four floors feature beautiful suites, some with large terraces. All rooms have air conditioning, double glazing and modem connection.
Situated on the famous La Rambla, Le Meridien Hotel Barcelona is in a prime location for enjoying the entertainment and architecture of the city. Just a short walk from the Cathedral, the hotel is in the heart of Barcelona\'s Gothic district. It is well located for the shopping on Passeig de Gracia and Avinguda Diagonal and a 20 minute walk from the waterfront.
Newly renovated, this luxury hotel now has 212 fine rooms and suites, with chic designer colors and furnishings. The décor is contemporary, somewhat at odds with the historic building, but rooms and suites are bright, clean and spacious. Some have excellent views of Las Ramblas, which can be a little noisy at night on the lower floors.
All rooms have internet access, a minibar, tea and coffee-facilities (a big plus!), air-conditioning and cable TV. They also include a personal safe large enough to hold a laptop. Billing is cruise-ship modern, and can be monitored on the bedroom TV, or even from the bathroom TV whilst soaking in the tub if so desired. Most suites have terraces, vast luxury bathrooms and a separate dressing area.
The emphasis here is on service, and Le Meridien upholds its own high standards. Front desk staff speak good English and the doorman is second to none, hailing cabs, holding doors and loading luggage without fuss. Room service also is very efficient and speedy. Valet parking is available, another surprising amenity in this busy city centre hotel. No wonder the guest book is full of such celebrity names as Pavarotti, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and Madonna.
The hotel offers a well-equipped business centre with free internet access, as well as a small fitness room but no pool. The Cent Onze is a smart upscale lounge and restaurant with an excellent reputation for incredible food. As one of the best located luxury hotels in Barcelona, Le Meridien Hotel offers the complete package of good accommodation, top-notch service and unrivalled location to suit any traveler.
