The rooms are big enough for two persons and they are clean. Also the bathroom was perfect, but the shower could be better. I also had a nice balcony looking into a nice street of the Barri Gotic. The room was cleaned everyday, even when I was there they cleaned after I left around 15:00. Breakfast was simple, everything was... More

Hotel is well placed in the heart of the old Gotic Quarter just two minutes from the Cathedral. Little bit noisy through the night but no real problem. Hotel looks a tad old fashioned but is spotlessly clean and room comfortable. Buffet breakfast was all you could ask for. If you a looking for a very central location the hotel... More

Bags of character and good location but totally lacking in working facilities. Surly and unhelpful reception staff. An antique elevator and if you use the alternative stairs, the lights go out halfway up leaving you in pitch dark. The room was clean enough but dingy and poorly equipped. Air-conditioning didn't work. This hotel appears to be bending over backwards to... More

We stayed here for a long weekend, came back yesterday. We had room 109, a fairly spacious, quiet and very clean room. Yes, it was warm at night time but we just stripped the blankets off and slept with a sheet! Air con seems fairly ineffective so not sure how bearable it would be in summer?

Unlike a previous reviewer, we found the 3rd floor overlooking the street horrendously noisy, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights. Loud shouting, skateboarding and revelry until dawn! The curtains make no difference and the sound proofing is poor. Location is fine, but with the problem above it's no help. We've done many CityBreaks but Barcelona is a very strange city... 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.
