Overall we had a wonderful stay at Medinaceli. We arrived at 2am and the person on reception was friendly and welcoming even though it was a horrible hour of the morning. Breakfast was nice was a good selection. Only flaw was the bed was not the most comfortable but the room was quiet so still got a good sleep regardless.... More

The room was a bit too small, and mine (116) had no natural light, which made it not so pleasant. This I could not make out from the photos online. Also, I could not dine there, another thing I did not enjoy. Otherwise, great staff, clean room, very discreet staff (except Reception, you could hardly see anyone, but still the... More

The hotel is 2 blocks from La Rambla. Great location. No parking, but close to metro stations (Dessenes). Breakfast was great too. Internet is free and worked great from room. TV and bed were great.

The hotel has an excellent location. In the middle of all interesting sites. The room was pleasant except for a persistent bad smell that becomes unbearable when A/C is on. We were obliged to open the windows all the time. Thanks God we were in April with a very pleasant weather.

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

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.
