When I booked a room at Hotel Nouvel on Orbitz.com I was concerned because the rate was very reasonable and it was in the heart of the city. Most hotels in great locations are expensive. All I was looking for was a clean place with a private toilet and a comfortable bed to rest my head after being out all... More

This hotel is located on a small touristic street next to La Rambla and Plaça Catalunya. The staff is very friendly, speaks many languages and is always ready to help. Moreover, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious, as well as the bathrooms. Breakfast is good. To sum up, it is a great hotel at a reasonable price to consider... More

This was my first travel as a solo woman of 71 outside of North America. I chose this hotel on Rick Steves suggestion. It is an old Victorian style place just a few stores off the Ramblas. My only complaint really is the room was VERY small (as they were when this hotel was built). Otherwise, there was a small... More

We booked the Nouvel primarily for it's fantastic location. The hotel is situated just off the Ramblas and is in easy walking distance of a lot of Barcelonas major attractions. The Hotel was surprisingly quiet at night even though you were in the heart of the Barri Gotic. On saying that you could get a bit of fallout off the... More

There is a strong strong smell in the lobby of this place that we had to endure for 4 days. It smelled like someone dropped a perfume bottle right there and was that strong. I could smell it coming down the stairs from the second floor and certainly the second you walk into the property. I had thought a guest... More

This hotel is located centrally to Everything. It's on a pedestrian street "Santa Anna" and is 2 minutes away from the main pedestrian walkway "la Rambla". Right outside the hotel are numerous cafes and shops and it's great to walk the side streets exploring. The room was sizeable, and clean. The wifi was good in the rooms and it was... More

It is very easy to walk past this hotel. It does not have much of a street frontage. Our room was small but pleasant. There is not a lot of sound proofing as we could hear the people above us walking around. Great location for exploring the old city.

This hotel is ideally situated on a small street Santa Ana just off La Rambla. You can easily walk from Aerobus drop off point at Placa Catalunya (about 2mins) and also to the tour buses that leave from the same square. The hotel staff speak very good English and check in was quick and simple. WiFi is free and worked... More

To me, this hotel seems to be right out of the 1920's style. Marble everywhere. It is absolutely beautiful. We have just got back after a 4 day stay. The staff were excellent. Nothing was too much bother. They were pleasant, informative & always on hand. The room we had was beautifully decorated with bath, Jacuzzi & shower. Air con... More

We were very pleased with our room, the staff, and the location of this hotel. And we really were lucky because the Feste de la Merce occurred during our week long stay. After a two minute walk to Las Ramblas, we were a part of the excited crowd watching the Gigantes or Giants parade. We were swept up into other... More

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.
