Choose this hotel as we were on a budget. Great location and really friendly staff. Rooms clean and tidy, although fairly basic. Watch out for rooms overlooking the alley way as the cafe culture can get a bit noisy. Recommend you have a room facing into the inner courtyard Would happily return

Great Hotel for a short break, provided us with all our needs. Rooms clean and tidy, shower working, no nasty smells. OK it's not the ritz but cheap and great location. Breakfast was continental, cold meats, cheese, fresh bread etc with a great coffe machine. It has great reviews and well deserved, would recommend.

A very clean hotel with helpful staff. A block and a half away from Liceu Metro station. Well situated for walking to downtown sites. Breakfast was included but very repetitive - croissants, muffins, toast?, mini packets of jam and honey, dry cereal with hot milk, hot beverage machine. We ended up bringing in our own fresh fruits and yogurt.

The hotel's location is excellent, close to many locations within walking distance. The staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is pretty poor and basic. Bathroom quite new and clean. Cleanliness Downside - no safety deposit box in the room.

very advantageous location: next to Rambla in old city center. Miracle surrounding, Clean reconditioned bathrooms, simple, but comfortable rooms, helpful staff. It was good choice for 2 nights with buffet breakfast on competitive price.

Stayed here in the Gothic Quarter. The young man on reception was great and recommended places to eat. The rooms are spotless and bathrooms too. Plenty of hot water. Continental breakfast was lovely . Can be a bit nosy at night but staying in a city is to be expected. But didn't keep me awake Ideal place to get around.

Lovely hotel in the gothic quarter near La Rambla, it doesn't look much from the outside, but is nice inside. Well decorated, the room was very clean and spacious and modern, the amber night lights were a good touch too. Breakfast was adequate providing the usual continental foods - cereal, juices, meats, cheeses bread and cakes. Staff were very friendly... More

This was our first time in Barcelona, so my impressions of the hotel are based on my other experiences in Europe and Asia. This hotel is situated at the heart of the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona and was charging $100 a night in the middle of tourist season, so right there you can see it is quite a bargain. The... 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.
