My friend and I specifically requested a twin bedroom when we booked the hotel 2 weeks ago. The hotel confirmed that we would get twin rooms but when we arrived today we were told that there were no twin rooms available. Instead We were given a tiny double room with a small window view of the inside of the building... More

Only got better. We arrived, me and my son, at 10am. They have managed to arrange a room in 15 minutes. We got a twin bed room which we asked for. The room, on the 2nd floor (210) was not too big but had the required facilities including a small fridge for the water. The vending machines have 2EU bottles,... More

Stayed at the HCB in May, loved the location, access to shops, gothic quarter, cruise ships and beach was just wonderful. However, the rooms were dark especially if you only had one window, I noticed other rooms had two. It was very clean, and nicely decorated but oh so dark. There was no complimentary tea or coffee in the rooms,... More

The location of the hotel is perfect. Close to many attractions and to all public transportation options. Checkin was swift and friendly. I was surprised to learn they charge 2 euro per day for use of the in room safe. This was a first for me and makes you wonder if they are trying to cash in on the reputation... More

Great location, it is near a metro station. Great staff at the hotel, it was clean but the only downside is if you stay at the back of the hotel you get a view of the wall of the building next door. So prefer to book a room at the front of the hotel. And another thing the breakfast was... More

The staff was great and they put us in an excellent room with a balcony, much appreciated! The bed was uncomfortable but i found that to be the case with most european... 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.
