This quaint Hotel was perfect stay. The staff from the front desk clerk to the hotel maids to the dining staff were hospitable and efficient. Some of the huge hotel chains need to take lessons from the staff of this hotel. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Liked the fact that the front doors of the hotel are locked, and the front... More

First of all this Hotel has great employee's. They deserve a huge 10 for effort and helpfulness. They did understand English and helped me with my limited Spanish and had a few good laughs over different words and meanings. If you arrive by Taxi they do not pull up in front of the hotel as the entrance is in a... More

Great central location, near La Rambla and old district; clean and quiet hotel. Bed was comfortable and bathroom looked modern. Hotel had free WiFi and breakfast, which was decent. La Rambla area is where the touristy restaurants and small shops can be found. Hotel is not far from the open market which has some excellent deals in fresh food. Get... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel California and loved it. The location is fantastic. Wifi was good and the room was quite spacious. The bedroom was very dark and basic but the bathroom was lovely. The guys at the front desk, which is manned 24/7, were extremely friendly and helpful. The negatives were (1) the street noise at night -... More

I stayed here for 6 nights. After a difficult and stressful taxi transfer from the airport, I was greeted by a nonchalant (male) receptionist. In fact, all 3 receptionists on rotation were male and nonchalant! I've nothing against male receptionists but a female one with a sunny disposition who has no problem giving eye contact will work wonders for this... More

We picked this hotel for location and were not disappointed just off La Rambla. We arrived at 11am one room was ready and only had to wait five minutes for the other one. The rooms were spotless but basic and breakfast in the morning was all you needed, the dinning room was very clean. William and Antionio on reception very... More

My friend booked this hotel as she previously stayed in the same area. I found the hotel very convenient for the places that we visited on our long weekend and the staff was very friendly and professional. The room (en-suite) was clean and nice, and the one next to ours (we were on the second floor, in room 204) even... More

I can't fault the hotel on it's location. It was fantastic! Right by Le Rambla and easy walking distance to all the museums. The rooms were clean and had a good, simple breakfast available. Our only issues was the bed was rock hard. We literally woke up aching. And we were constantly roused each night by the energetic night-life. If... 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.
