Great hotel, Clean, comfortable and love the location. The staff were very informative and friendly. Parking is opposite and easy. If you pay for it at the reception you will get a good discount. Normally 42 euros and with the discount 28 euros.

We love this hotel and it´s beautiful setting in the old town, opposite the majestic Cathedral - and with lots of things going on in the sqare below. Also it has a spa with a cool little healthpool next to the roof terrace. Excellent service, the room was great and also we enjoyed having the breakfastbuffé incuded.

Loved our time here. In our first trip to Barcelona we couldn't have been happier with the hotel. We asked for a twin room facing the cathedral, and we were given a top floor room with a great terrace and view. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Loved the pool and sauna overlooking the cathedral. Really relaxing place to be.... More

The perfect location for a touristic visit to this wonderful city! Definitely pay for a room with a view and you will be treated to an exciting panorama of activity in the square in front of the Cathedral.

8/9-8/13/16. My husband and I and 2 older daughters lived this hotel. The view of the Cathedral of Barcelona and its square was spectacular. We loved being in the Barri Gotic, because so much was very walkably close - Palau de la Musica Catalan, Picasso Museum, La Rambla, El Eixemple, great restaurants in Born. By the hotel, the street performers... More

My daughter and I stayed in one of the remodeled rooms on the 2nd floor with a view of the cathedral. Our view was slightly obstructed by the trees, but it was otherwise perfect. The sounds from the courtyard just added to the ambiance. There were dancers and music and otherwise a perfect stay. The rooms were beautifully furnished and... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
