Room was unfortunately in the floor base, without outside windows only light from the central corridor and on the first day very cold...personnel... More

I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful hotel which was part of a package. TAXI: The taxi fare from the airport was expensive at over €30 but to find your own way might prove to be difficult. I did manage to get an airport bus from the top of the Rambla for €6 on my return journey. HOTEL: The hotel entrance, room... More

Perfect located if you want to stay close to Rambla and the Hotel was a really nice experience, maybe not what i expect from a four star hotel but i enjoyed my stay so i put a four anyway. The room was a bit small, so the bed took most of the area but it was clean and fresh even... 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

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.
