We stayed here for a few nights in a clean double room. The hotel is not sound proof and we could hear people coming in and out of their rooms. We had a window but not a great view (inside wall of the building). Staff were very helpful at reception but no where to be seen at breakfast. The hotel... More

Great location – close to Aerobus stop (at Pl. Catalunya) and main touristic attractions of Barcelona. Nice staff (perhaps excluding the breakfast assistance). Hotel room was rather small but well arranged (inside you can find electric kettle + two mugs +tea and coffee). The noise level during the night was rather high. The list of TV programs was quite limited... More

Three days without soap in the room. Asked three times, never brought it. Last night got angry and had to install the shampoo myself on the place. The owner was not kind neither apologised about it. Besides, it is noisy, dirty and claustrophobic, pretty close to a Hong Kong experience.

This really outperformed my expectations. If you look at some photos on here you'll be confronted with rather disappointing and disgusting looking facilities. However, to me the reality was much better than this. I slept well and didn't have any problems with noise or anything. The city isn't THAT loud in the winter, even considering Barcelona were playing and it... More

As i said perfect spot, close to everything, AirPort bus stop 2 minutes away, and good price also, but Rooms are quite small, very noisy Both from the street and between Rooms, so beware about this fact if you need a quite hotel chose something else.

Very small rooms, great location near pl. Catalunya and Ramblas. Friendly staff. We had only one problem in the bathroom wit our sink and unluckly it wasn't solved within our departure, even if we asked the staff more than once to solve it... Good value for money but I'll improve the attention to some details. Very thin doors and walls... More

Perhaps it is the comparison to the last place I stayed, the Maikol in Rome, perhaps just a good experience but I am writing this from a comfortable bed in the Hotel Gran Ducat. The rooms are small but comfortable, the staff professional and helpful and the location fantastic. Color me happy and willing to return here again to beautiful... More

Room was spotless and comfortable, only gripe was it was at front of hotel and the noise level from the street traffic is terrible. The breakfast is perfectly adequate, fresh fruit, yogurts, croissants etc and most importantly really good coffee, couldnt fault the... More

Our room # 609, the entry light was not working the faucet and soap dispenser in the bathroom were not working The chair was very wobbly and lots of... More

I had a one night stay at this hotel with my wife and daughter before we set sail from the port. The hotel is in a great location, just a 2 minute walk from the Aerobus stop at pl. Catalunya (if you are coming from the airport). Easy walking distance to Rambla, the main shopping areas and the port. Friendly... 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.
