Mercer Hotel Barcelona

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

Tucked away in a peaceful corner of Barcelona’s bustling Gothic Quarter, this luxurious, character-packed boutique hotel is perfect for romantics and lovers of old stones.

Designed by award-winning architect Rafael Moneo, the hotel combines cool contemporary looks with period features – Roman walls, medieval arches and old beams – and arguably the most comfortable beds in town.

Glossy orange trees grow in the courtyard, and there’s a delightful guests-only rooftop terrace, cocktail bar and plunge pool, a tapas bar, and an intimate, romantic restaurant.

For a hotel with only 28 rooms, the 24-hour service is remarkable, and includes a dedicated guest relations desk where staff will help you get the most out of your visit.

It’s convenient for the sights, restaurants and bars of old Barcelona, and less than a 15-minute walk to most of the others.
