Definition of 4 Star in Europe is still unclear to me, How can this hotel be 4 Star, If I was rating agency, I would give maximum 1 Star to this hotel. Rooms are pretty small. Overall cleanliness...

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. However, the rooms right on Via Laietana are very noisy... More

Visited Barcelona Hotel Colonial 3 nights last week. I've stayed there previously. This time was a disappointment. When I arrived my reservation was missing, consequently I got a small, interior room. Very dark, no natural light. I asked the hotel that I wanted aa better room the next day. And the staff agreed. The next evening, when I was back... More

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.
