“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Our first challenge was finding this hotel. We had a little bit of difficulty after being left in a plaza a few small streets away by our cab from the airport. I suggest you print a good map of the area to help you as the cabs are not able to take you to the door. Once at the hotel it was a pleasant surprise. Beautiful is a word that comes to mind. The hotel is beautiful and gorgeously decorated. The rooms are small but this seems to fit the style of the area where the hotel is located. The rooms come with all necessary to enjoy your holiday.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of the old neighborhood, Hotel Neri is close enough to all of the attractions Barcelona has to offer without making you feel like you are stuck in the middle of all of the loud tourists. The rooms are well-appointed, clean, soothing, even spacious (esp. by European standards). The price is not unreasonable for what you get. Recommend booking ear,y as it is small and availability is limited. Be aware that you are charged up front and there is precious little flexibility in changing dates. Another negative is the breakfast: don't. Even. Go. There.

Room Tip: All seem okay. Maybe the ones with views to the internal square would be better. Hotel does not have...

The Hotel Neri while not cheap was nearly the perfect romantic getaway for my wife and I. The restaurant staff and chef were amazing. The hotel staff was very very good. The hotel itself was incredible. The only slightly negative aspect to the hotel was our room overlooking the Sant Philip Neri square. Lots of activity at all hours of the day and night so was slightly noisy. The excellent construction of the remodeled hotel kept most of the noise away. The location of the hotel was perfect, could not have been better. I highly recommend the Neri and it's staff.

Room Tip: Get a room without the courtyard view.

A wonderful little boutique hotel in the heart of the Gothic quarter.The service was first class with a warm welcome and helpfulness along the way. Did not eat in the restaurant for dinner as had found the breakfast disappointing - not bad just over priced. Both bars offer a warm and welcome escape from the heat and hassle of the city. Would return!

Beautiful, clean jewel in the Gothic quarter. After a long trip we were warmly greeted by this spectacular Hotel. Old world charm but comfortable modern facilities. Has a great restaurant and a fun roof top bar. Our room overlooked a quaint courtyard. Would definitly book tis place on a return trip.

Room Tip: try for room 102 (second flor overlooking courtyard.

This gem is in the Gothic Quarter about a block from The Cathedral down a narrow cobblestoned walkway. It has old world charm with all the modern conveniences and has a knowledgeable staff always present to help. Outside the restaurant of this inn is an enchanting square with a small fountain - a great place to linger. (I don't recommend the breakfast fare.) The rooms are clean, quiet, modern and the bed comfortable. This is where I want to stay if I return to Barcelona.

I read some of the "terrible" reviews, to see what anyone could possibly complain about. They seemed pretty weak. In the middle of La Merce, the surrounding area gets pretty packed, and loud if you are an early to bed kinda person, but the location was fantastic.
Right in the middle of the La Merce action, and a ridiculously short walk everywhere you would want to go. The old style of the facade and the modern amenities of the inside were exactly what we were looking for
Breakfast isn't cheap, no, but that's hardly a reason to knock the hotel itself, and you get some incredible food for the Euros.
Also, we certainly didnt have the experience some of the poor reviews complained of, with the staff. They helped with everything we needed, and even understood my poor attempts at Spanish.
This place set the mood for a fantastic weekend, and lived up to and beyond our expectations
