Stayed here in January. Was not pleased with the reception I received when I arrived. I noticed others having a welcome drink and I did not have one. I made a comment to the young man who worked there and he immediately came back with a drink for me. Great room, nice terrace, but staff certainly was not friendly when... More

This was a lovely boutique hotel off the main tourist path, but in easy walking distance from everything. Right on the water, with a great rooftop bar - i was there in december and we were able to sit outside with a tower heater and enjoy the sunset over the city with a great glass of wine. Now, if you're... More

We stayed at this hotel for three days prior to a ten day cruise. It was in a great location. We were near so many wonderful restaurants and shops. We walked to many areas of the city with no issues at all. The hotel itself was very quaint and beautiful! Our room was very clean and had everything we needed.... More

It has a four star rating and is worth every one. The hotel is in the marina area (Gothic Quarter), only one road separates it from the water. We had a room with a balcony on the first floor and although the road gets quite busy with traffic the noise is not obtrusive. It is in a very good location... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in January. Perfectly placed to explore the City, 5 minutes walk from the Port and the Gothic Quarter, and similar distance to metro stops for further afield. We had a port view room, which had a lovely view, was smartly done and very comfortable. Despite having a busy road outside the room was quiet on... More

Very nice modern, newly renovated, room. The hotel is perfect situated for both the beach and shoping. Nice breakfast, and nice drinks on the roof bar. The roof pool is very small... Some very nice restaurant near by.

Duquesa hotel is very well situated (right in the center of Barcelona) and the staff there was very friendly. Our room was beautiful and we were given a glass of champagne on our arrival. They have a really nice little terrasse on the roof where one can simply have a drink or get dinner. The swimming pool is way smaller... 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.
