We booked a room facing the cathedral for 3 nights and were pleased to get upgraded to a suite which was lovely. rooms were serviced twice a day and were... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for anyone wishing to explore the Gothic quarter of the hotel, and the cathedral and square is literally on the doorstep. Rooms were lovely, with small balconies overlooking the square. Breakfast was great too.

This hotel is really lovely. Visited for 3 nights, bed and breakfast. The room and the rest of the hotel is kept very clean, with the room being cleaned sometimes twice in a day if you come back and go out again! The only slight niggle was the two single beds instead of a double, but it didn't bother us... More

We were delighted with the location being just minutes from Plaza Cataluna and what a breathtaking hotel. Pleasant helpful staff, lovely spacious clean room, amazing views. We didn't use the spa as we were so busy exploring but breathtaking panaromic views and atmosphere on the 2 roof top areas overlooking the Cathedral. Blissful relaxation! We will be back!

Just visit this hotel like 5 minutes on 16.05.15 at 15:15 and felt the urgent need to write a review for the general manager.

If only we could weight our scoring in favour of location, it is absolutely superb. But could not find fault with anything else although did not eat in the hotel - seems that not many do.

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.
