Stayed here for 4 nights, booked by a travel agent that my work place forces us to use. This overpriced dump does have a central location if one enjoys staying in one of the most touristic areas of town. However, it lacks every ingredient of a nice hotel. Sheets are worn out, some electric stuff in rooms doesn't work, the... More

Rialto is a great place to stay for a weekend getaway. The location is great. It's only a few hundred meters from La Rambla, in the center of the Barri Gotic center with walking distance to Rambla the Mar with the aquarium to Placa de Catalunya. Subway lines L3 and L4 is very close with stations Liceu and Jaume I... More

Rialto hotel has 3 stars. It is cery comfortable and well-localised. Only 200 metres from La Rambla street ( one of the most beautiful). Breakfast was quite good, very big variety of different meals. Service was competent too. Favourable ratio of prize to quality

Great location, central to everything dining and shopping;however the hotel rooms are dated and drab. The staff was unfriendly and marginally helpful. The couple I was traveling with had to change rooms 3 times before they could be accommodated. This hotel should be deleted from recommended hotels.

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.
