This hotel's location was absolutely second to none! We didn't want to stay on La Ramblas because we had our 8 year old son with us and wanted to feel safe at night to and from restaurants. It was quite expensive compared to those on La Ramblas that we were looking at but worth it for us. When we arrived... More

This hotel is located in the most convenient place in town, walking distance to so many sites, and just a few minutes from the metro if you want to go further. We could pop back during the day for a short break, very useful! We arrived late and were given our room, I noticed a smell of drains but was... More

We stayed in one of the superior rooms with a fantastic view of the Cathedral and had a spacious terrace. We were able to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the square and the shows that are put on there. The Staff are friendly and helpful and I would stay here again. However, I would never eat in the Restaurant... More

This is a nice hotel, really a good location for tourism as it is at a walk distance of major attractions and restaurants. Il is located in front of the beautiful gothic cathedral within the historical part of the city. There is service in many languages and it is quite luxuous for the price. A 10 minute walk to Plaça...

This hotel is in the heart of the Gothic Quarter & directly across from the gorgeous Barcelona Cathedral. So much history is within walking distance, as well as great shopping & dining. Also an easy walk down Las Ramblas to the waterfront. We've stayed there twice & loved it both times. On the first visit, within minutes of our arrival,... More

The location is one of the best in Barcelona. But the hotel is just too old and in dire need of a good renovation. Rooms are too simple and the place is not too clean. Breakfast OK. Not recommended until it is redecorated.

Great location, but a dated hotel that smells like something very old. Room was hot enough to be rated a sauna. Had to sleep with the windows open and the heat off. Very uncomfortable bed too. Breakfast was included with our rate. That was about the only good thing.

I definitely prefer staying in the Gothic District when I'm in Barcelona. I like the setting, the quaint streets and I love the activity in the Catedral square located right outside the front door. Staff was ok this time, not great. Doorman is always pleasant. Room is nice and the view is fantastic.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
