Mercer Hotel Barcelona is housed in a medieval building located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. One of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city.
It has preserved a lot of the medieval elements of its original structure which creates an extraordinary look and ambiance.
The hotel offers a beautiful rooftop with a small plunge pool and a bar for guests to relax and enjoy. They also have an inner courtyard filled with orange trees. Which perfectly gives you that homey Mediterranean feel.
Moreover, rooms at Mercer Hotel differ in size, shapes, and styles. Most of which incorporate the 1st-century walls within the complex. And the ornaments seamlessly flow into historical architecture.
Bear in mind historical buildings in the Gothic Quarter are narrow. Therefore, the rooms might seem a bit dark. Although, the rooms are decorated luxuriously, with chic decors and beautiful artworks.
Furthermore, Mercer Hotel is home to The Mercer, its main restaurant that features Catalan cuisine and dishes.
They also have another in-house restaurant called “Le Bouchon”, a tapas bar and bistro offering finger foods and delectable wine options.
Good to know: The hotel is located in the alleys of the Gothic Quarter and taxi access is very limited. Since transportation is a little challenging, you can opt to either book a direct car service from the hotel or have someone meet you in Placa de Sant Jaume, located just near the property. If you book a junior suite deluxe or suite, the added benefits are really great. They include a free airport transfer, welcome gift, tasting of tapas at the restaurant, and even a 1-hour guided tour of the Gothic Quarter.
