We selected Mercer Hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The hotel is a fabulous combination of a full service modern hotel with historic ambiance. The location is fabulous, allowing exploration of the narrow, winding streets of the old city, Ramblas, the Cathedral and even more. It's true that taxi's don't want to drive right up to the hotel, but the hotel is good at getting ones who will come to the front door. The room was great - large, comfortable, incredibly quiet, with a terrific shower. Complimentary water was very welcome after a long day of sightseeing. The staff were excellent and very pleasant. They were great at answering questions and really knew the city. A few shared the history of many places in the city. One night, we were even walked to a nearby restaurant by one of the staff. That was excellent service. The only small criticism is the hotel didn't have a lot of nearby restaurant recommendations. After eating at an excellent restaurant very close to the hotel, the only other recommendation they gave was a restaurant that ended up being closed. When asking for others nearby, they didn't have others to recommend. It may have been because it is August. After a long day of sightseeing we didn't want to get back in a taxi for dinner and it would have been nice to have more than one suggestion that was walking distance from the hotel. All in all, we had an excellent stay at Mercer and would come back to the hotel on a future trip to Barcelona.
