The location is brilliant, as most reviews will state, it's near to the marina, restaurants, La Ramblas. The hop on hop off bus as well as boat cruises is about a 7 min walk and the beach is about 15 minutes away. So you really can't beat the location! But the hotel is definitely not 4 stars and slightly overpriced... More

Great room amenities (self-clearing mirror in bathroom!), free WiFi, spacious, clean, comfortable rooms, friendly and professional staff, great location only blocks from Las Ramblas and also the waterfront, near so many restaurants and shops. I would stay there again, and am already recommending it to... More

We arrived in Barcelona from the Aerobus, strolled down La Rambla, turned left and a couple of minutes down the road, opposite the beautiful marina, there stood Hotel Medinaceli. Our room was on the 2nd floor and balcony doors opened onto the fountain and square. If we looked to our right there was the marina and sea. We could not... More

Stayed as a group. Rooms are spacious and clean. Our room was facing the street and windows are not so soundproof. Location is great, right near la Rambla and the Gothic quarter. There was no soap or shampoo, and they charge 2 euros pee day for a safe. Breakfast is adequate.

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.
