This hotel is right in the middle of Barcelona so it is very handy for the tours to everything. It is beautifully decorated for a small boutique hotel. The rooms are not huge so look carefully when you book but they are very well designed and comfortable. My wife and I are from Canada and came in to the hotel... More

Some kind of hotel in the center if the city. So nice and organized, all staff were helpful, the only thing we did not like is the noise coming from the street in to our room which is in the first floor.

We stayed at this hotel in early April 2015 for three nights. The hotel is located steps from La Rambla, near Plaça de Catalunya, where you can buy tickets for and board the ho-ho buses. The hotel itself was very clean with good sized rooms (for European standards). We had an inside room, i.e., away from the Plaça, and it... 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.
