Nice location, nice staff, but the hotel needs some updates. The bathroom had visible mold and the bed was rock hard. Very uncomfortable. The shower had great pressure and housekeeping was prompt. Breakfast was bland but serviceable. for longer trips it would get old fast. Street noise is ever present.

We stayed at the hotel for four nights. We found our room and bathroom to be comfortable, spacious and clean. The staff on the desk (which is manned 24 hours) were very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal just off Carrer de Ferran where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Would recommend the My Way restaurant just... More

this place offers great service however our room needed an update. Our bed was extremely hard. The bathroom had mold or mildew around the run and on the bathroom ceiling and since our room faced the street we had people noise all night. Location is just off La Rambla which is great. Perhaps a room off the street would have... 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.
