4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just returned from a four day stay at this hotel. Reception, and all other staff and domestic cleaners were all very polite and helpful. Travelled alone, so had a single room which although small, was clean and tidy. The location of the hotel is perfect. A short walk from the airport bus stop. Would I stay at this hotel again...

I just returned from BCN last night and I must say that a better deal I could not have had by staying at this hotel. Proximity to all places and starting points, clean room, modern bathroom, fresh towels everyday. Large closet with extra blanket and pillow.The chambermaid was very polite and the reception staff so helpful, I dealt mostly with... More

We booked this online and were delighted when we arrived. This is a charming, older hotel right in the heart of the Las Ramblas area. We arrived early and they stored our luggage in a locked room so we could start exploring. Our room was large and had a small balcony where we could watch the crowds going by. The... More

I stayed at Nouvel for one night with my teenage son. The location is ideal, right off the Rambla and a couple of minutes walk from Placa Catalunya, and it was fairly inexpensive (I booked it together with our flight, so I'm not sure exactly what it would have cost seperately). After reading on previous reviews that some rooms don't... More

Gorgeous hotel right off Las Ramblas, easy walk to metro, restaurants, and many other area attractions. Hotel was clean and well kept. Nice architure in common area and in rooms. New/modern fixtures in rooms. TV (all in Spanish) and free wifi. My critique with the bathroom is that there is no curtain in the tub/shower. Only a glass door that... More

Stayed two nights in this hotel. The location is fantastic. A 2 minute walk from the main plaza, bus stop and metro. So handy. Also very close to shopping and restaurants/cafes. If there are noisy guests surrounding you, you can hear everything. There are tiles everywhere. The bathroom is very big and the water temperature and pressure are good. Be... More

Just off the Ramblas , the Nouvel was a good choice for a short break to Barca. We asked for a low floor, and this is what we got - room 136 right at the front of the hotel. Room was quite small, 2 windows onto the street - but not a lot of light as a narrow road ,... More

My friend & myself spent 3 nights at this hotel for her 60th birthday. It was in a great location, just off Las Rambles but very quiet. Our room was very clean but we did find it quite dark which did become a problem when getting ready to go out. The lack of mirrors was an issue as we only... More

Stayed here for four nights with my husband and two daughters (23y & 20y). Ideal situation for exploring the streets around. Rooms small but well appointed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely consider staying here again.

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.
