The Hotel is at an ideal location: It is close to the port, Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya and the old town. Everything is just steps away. We stayed one night after our cruise. The room is quite nice.

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and it was really sweet, clean and the service was good. Breakfast was a bit disappointing but the perfect location of the hotel is making up for it. Also the staff is very helpful with searching for sites and addresses. Highly recommended only I would skip breakfast.

The location is excellent, everything is in walking distance, 7 min to La Rambla, 5 min to harbour, 10 min to Barceloneta beach, in the border of Barrio Gotico and El Born.

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
