Reviews are subjective and the individuals expectations and experiences must be taken into account. I consider myself a seasoned traveller having visited over 30 countries in the last 7 years in accommodation from the Bellagio in Vegas to a tent in Columbia. The location of the hotel is ideal, just 5 mins from La Ramblas and 15 mins from the... More

We stayed here for one night during our trip to Barcelona. Hotel has great location, relatively close to both La Barceloneta (the beach) and Las Ramblas and with good restaurants nearby. Friendly staff and clean rooms which also was of decent size.

My main criteria are location/convenience and cleanliness. This hotel is in a great location. Within two blocks of Las Rambles, Barcelona Harbor, Barcelona Pier and the El Barri Gotic area. 10 minute walk to Barceloneta Beach. Six or Seven euro taxi fare to get to Sagrada Familia. You can catch a cab near the Christopher Columbus monument or at the... More

My bag with valuables was stolen from the hotel, while it was in custody of the hotel staff. The manager acknowledged responsibility and promised to contact me further. This never happened. After several calls and emails from my side, their response is: "SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE, BUT THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO." I am now hiring a lawyer to... More

Very friendly accommodating staff. Close to everything, metro, Ramblas, beach. A good base to see the city. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby. Well worth a stay. We asked to change our room twice, once on the recommendation of the staff so we could have a bigger room! And secondly for better aircon - it was no drama... More

It was a small hotel near to all city attractions. We could go everywhere on foot easily. Our room had a window looking into the hallway; this made it a little dark and no fresh air. However, we were out for the whole day, so it didn't bother us. We had single beds which were very small (narrow). Staff was... More

A wonderful hotel in Barcelona. The location is great being that it is close to the metro and all the sights. The service is excellent. The front desk was very helpful with sightseeing tips and recommendations for dinner.

Not 4, maybe 3+. Air condition poor and noisy. Quite tidy room. Very good location close to the Rambla. Also very short distance to the waterfront boulevard leading to the city beach. Great old building but it doesn't show in hotel life since the old parts are not in active daily use. Generally quite 90's overall look. In front of... 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.
