We have been in Barcelona three times before, but this hotel is the best from all we have already visited. It has the great location in the centre of city, close to the port, beach, shops, bars, restaurants and also to the favourite touristic attractions. Room was spacious and cleaned every single day. Stuff was kind and helpful, they gave... More

We we in Barcelona in December, 2015. The Hotel is placed near the Harbour and you can walk along the seaside without going by metro or bus first. Rooms are large and well done. Staf was very friendly.

If we had let it, this hotel would have ruined what was meant to be a relaxing few days in my favourite city after a fantastic 2 week cruise. It may say 4* on the website, but it does not live up to this rating in either facilities or service. The room decor was dated and worn. The room wasn't... More

Stayed for 3 days just after Xmas. Ideal location for tourists with Ramblas, Bari Gotic and waterfront only minutes away. Hotel looks great at first glance however the rooms are small, cramped and tired. Walls are very thin so you can get a lot of noise from other rooms and outside. You have to pay for the safe, no bottled... More

We stayed one night post and pre cruise. I picked it because of its proximity to the Ramblas, the seafront and because it was within 400 yards of the port shuttle bus stop. It is set in an old palace building and the interior is stunning. The staff could not have been more helpful and they let us check in... More

Hotel Medinaceli is a hidden pearl in the heart of Gothic Barcelona. Comfortable room, exotic interior, very friendly service, great breakfast selection. The view from the balcony over the small square was beautifully romantic, and with a sea view on the side. Drawback is that it is fairly noisy to sleep, so bring or buy earplugs if you are a...

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.
