Garden and Rooftop

Green, how I love you green, in the centre of the city.

The charming garden of Hotel Alma Barcelona reclaims the urban concept with which Ildefons Cerdà (1815-1876) designed the Eixample district: utilising the interior spaces of each block as a place for socialising and bringing natural light, ventilation and a joy of living to his urban planning.

Designed by architects Nori Furlan and Paco Llonch, the garden is an oasis of carefully cultivated vegetation, slate paving and hardwood benches. More than a simple garden in the centre of Barcelona, it is a shrine to silence, something which surprises visitors when they see the contrast with the surrounding city bustle.

Due to its features, the charming garden space is ideal for private meetings and corporate events at which harmony will be the guest of honour. It is available for private bookings (minimum 2 people).

Charming terrace in the rooftop

On the hotel rooftop, the terrace offers 360-degree views of Barcelona. It has the soul of the wind rose.

Separated into two spaces, one part looks towards the emblematic building of La Pedrera while the other faces the characteristic outline of the Sagrada Familia, both designed by Antoni Gaudí.

These spaces are are ideal for celebrations and other intimate gatherings and are available for private bookings (minimum 2 people).

The privileged views from this Barcelona hotel terrace add a fantastic perspective to any lively event.


"Among the top five hotel breakfasts in Spain. Splendid coffee, good pastries and bread, and freshly fried churros."
José Carlos Capel, restaurant critic for El País

The Alma breakfast/brunch buffet offers a perfectly balanced combination of excellent quality, unique local produce.

Fresh fruit and juices, traditional breads and cheeses, organic cereals, homemade cakes and French pastries are among the options in this Barcelona brunch. In addition, there are made to order hot dishes on the menu, including pancakes, the Alma ham and cheese toasty or sausage sandwich, hot chocolate with churros, or eggs prepared to taste: fried, scrambled, poached or in an omelette.

The Good Box, the Alma breakfast/brunch takeaway.
