This lovely hotel is very close to the Marina and La Rambla boulevard. It had very good rooms, well furnished, decorated and clean. The reception desk was very helpful. There is a secure underground parking place within 100 metres but you can park outside the hotel whilst you transfer luggage. We would stay here again; especially as they allowed our... More

Great location, rooms very clean, very rich and tasty breakfast and fantastic service. I stayed with my daughters for half-term and we were very close to the city's facilities but at the same time in a quiet location. The decor was spot on and was really impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. Wi-Fi was slightly temperamental but everything else... More

Had a nice stay at the hotel. Location is perfect and the hotel is clean. Really close to the hustle and bustle (2 minute walk) without having to deal with the noise. Wasn't crazy about the breakfast (mostly different kids of cold cuts which didn't appeal to my taste buds, nothing was hot besides the toast), but didn't starve. I... More

this hotel has to be one of the best in Barcelona. The location is good, near La Rambla and opposite the beach. Transport is easy. The Hop on Hop off tourist buses are just 200 meters away.

Upon arriving, the front desk was buzzing with check-outs, local recommendations and providing guests with directions! We were graciously greeted and assisted with checking in early, storing our luggage and providing directions to the beach while we waited for an available room. All interactions with the front desk staff were positive. This hotel takes customer service to a new level.... More

Hotel is very well situated. Right by La Ramblas and a few mins walk from the beach. Room was decent and clean. Tub did not look to be a quality of a hotel with a four star rating. It was quiet though. Only thing we had trouble with was check-in and took forever to checkout because they couldn't confirm whether... More

Very well located in a quiet square near the bottom of the Ramblas and close to boats and sea. Using an old building (Palace of the Medinaceli family) the interior has been rebuilt with public areas of a fine modern design. Our room was light and airy with a spacious bathroom....both well used but need of some refurbishment...............particularly curtains and... More

The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of the city. The major sights, La Rambla, the beach - everything is easily accessible on foot. The rooms are ok but the breakfast is for Austrian 4-star standards pretty poor. So I would advise to book room only and have breakfast in one of the numeros cafes in the surroundings.

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.
