We stayed at the Hotel Nouvel for 2 nights in May. We chose it primarily for its proximity to La Ramblas and the relatively reasonable room rates. We arrived by local train and it was only a short 10 minute walk from the station. There are quicker options with a subway stop about 5 minutes away on La Ramblas. The... More

It's in a great location and I would recommend it for that alone (not only to the main area but also within walking distance to the Aerobus to the airport). The beds were not that comfortable and the balcony we had basically backed up to homes so it wasn't worth it to have a balcony.

The hotel is ideally located right off the Ramblas which is ideal for evenings out as well as shopping around Plaza Catalunya. It's a really charming building with a ice entrance on a very nice street. The rooms are clean and decently sized, and apart from the lobby, there are small reading and sitting spaces around the hotel, which is... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The location is excellent. It is approximately 50m walk to La Rambla (the main tourist street) which is at the end of the street. Additionally it is about a 5 minute walk from Placa Catalunya where there are a lot of transport options including the metro and more importantly the airport... More

A lovely old hotel in the best possible location, no frills but everything you could need. La Rambla (the markets!!) and the Gothic Quarter were literally outside our door. The beach a 15 minute walk away, and for that first day overview of this great city, the Red Bus Tour has its main stop 5 minutes walk away in Placa... More

This is a nicely presented hotel with clean rooms and bathrooms that would serve well as a base for travellers exploring the sights in Barcelona. It is well located near Las Ramblas, Placa de Catalunya and is a short walk to a metro station. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to Barcelona and recommend it to... More

Well situated. Near the ramblas. Also close to city center so metro and bus stops nearby. Rooms are small and cosy. Did not opt for breakfast so don't know. The place is an old house converted onto a hotel. Amenities in the room adequate. Gets a four because of the loud banging of the doors that kept waking us up... More

Located a few steps from Ramblas, very good location, walking distance to Placa de Catalunya, where you can take the Barcelona Bus Turistic. Friendly staff, very clean. Standard rooms are dark, should stay in upper floors.

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.
