Located in Barcelona's historic Gothic Quarter, close to shopping, nightlife, and sightseeing spots
The NH Duc de la Victoria is in a beautiful neighborhood known as the Gothic Quarter (once home to artist Pablo Picasso), which is comprised of narrow, winding streets lined with historic buildings. The hotel itself is quiet, yet quite close to the tree-lined Las Ramblas pedestrian mall filled with shopping, restaurants and bars. The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art is also within easy walking distance. Trains and buses are available at the nearby Plaça Catalunya, which is both a public square and transportation hub.
Barcelona is an eclectic city that is popular for its historic and remarkable architecture, vibrant club scene, and urban beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The capital of the Catalan region, Barcelona speaks its own language -- literally and figuratively. Known for a frenetic pace, the city is full of modernist architecture, medieval history, quirky fashion, and endless tapas bars. Located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula, the city has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
Location is the big draw at the NH Duc de la Victoria, as this 156-room hotel sits in the city's popular Gothic Quarter, which is filled with restaurants, shops, and landmark buildings. Rooms are a bit generic, but offer contemporary furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and stocked minibars. Some have small balconies and all have soundproof windows. A breakfast buffet is served daily, which is standard for the NH brand, but the property lacks a full restaurant. Cocktails are served in the lounge, but the lively neighborhood is full of more authentic bars within walking distance. Those guests seeking a rooftop terrace and pool should check out nearby sister property NH Calderon.
