This hotel is within walking distance of many of the sights of Barcelona (las Ramblas, gothic quarter, cathedral, Port vell, Parc de Cuitadella, Passeig de Gracia) and transport (metro or bus) to any places further afield is easily reached. The hotel is clean and efficient with delightful staff. Breakfast is a la carte and very good and included in the price even if you have it in your room. The free minibar is also a welcome addition. Air con worked well and the shower had excellent water pressure and temp control. Molten Brown toiletries also a bonus. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows to choose from. There is some noise from Placa Reial at night but this can be minimised by closing the shutters, windows and curtains - the hotel cannot really be held responsible for this and in 4 nights I was woken only once. The hotel provide daily treats as an added bonus - fruit in the afternoon and sweets, muffins or cookies in the evening. All in all it was a very pleasant stay in a well run hotel in a very convenient position within Barcelona.

Accomodations were great with beds that raised at back and feet and Jacuzzi tub in bathroom. Internet was good general, a little slow in evening when heavily used. Location was central up the street from the food market and a block down from Metro hub. Since you pass by the main desk as you come in, it felt very safe. Bar for residents only on the back of the main floor. Rooms were quiet with double window on the busy La Rambla side. Front desk was helpful at recommending places to eat for tapas or down by the beach. Be aware that they limit the number of children--this is not really a family place.

We arrived at the Mercer Hotel for a 5 night stay to celebrate my birthday and to see the sights of Barcelona. Neither of us had been to Barcelona before and were hoping that we had chosen the right area in which to stay. We were not disappointed. Set right in the middle of the Gothic Quarter surrounded by quaint streets and nooks and crannies! From the minute that we arrived the Staff were attentive and helpful and our room was ready, always a bonus. We loved our room, comfortable, large, and in a quiet part of the hotel. We were soon out and about and found all sorts of squares, cafes, restaurants, and bars, and of course, we were close to La Ramblas and shops. Regarding praise for the staff ,We would especially like to mention Florencia, who certainly went the extra mile, and Juan Manuel and the bar staff upstairs by the pool bar where we stopped each evening before retiring. Also we appreciated the special attention on my birthday!

We stayed at the Ohla Hotel in September and were welcomed with a lovely glass of cava on check in and also received a complimentary bottle of cava in our room. The hotel is well located in the old town and it's easy to get to any where you want to go. We had a room on the 6th floor which was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable so no trouble sleeping! Unfortunately I had a bad cold so we didn't get chance to experience the restaurant and the hotel fully but the breakfasts were excellent.
My husband was unfortunate and had his wallet stolen. The Concierge couldn't have been more helpful,reporting the theft for us and processing the police statement. I would like to thank him and the rest of the staff who helped us. We will not hesitate to stay again!

We stayed for three nights in the loft suite, which was very superbly comfortable. The staff were excellent, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location of the hotel is on a busy road, but don't be put off by this, the double glazing keeps all noise out and the air con keeps the room cool. The hotel is very centrally located and is close to the stops for the tourist buses.
We had a fantastic 4 course meal in the restaurant,which was vey reasonably priced, and the sky bar has fantastic views of the city. The sky bar is for residents only in the early evening and is a relaxing place to have a drink before dinner.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Furniture is new, modern and simple. We stayed in room 6 on the ground floor but it was still very quiet. Location was perfect to catch the metro anywhere in the city. Hop on bus about 2 blocks away in the plaza. Wifi was decent but got sliw at peak times. AC in room was awesome, we even had to turn it down! Shower was one of the best we had in our 3 months in Europe. We stowed our bags for a few hours after checkout and the receptionist was very helpful in helping us print off tickets and directions to the metro, train and bus stations. We will return!
