Bottom Line

Hesperia Barri Gotic is a mid-range boutique hotel located a short walk from the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona's Old Town. The 71 rooms are bright and sunny, with flat-screen TVs and air-conditioning plus modern bathrooms with large rainfall showers; however, there have been a few complaints of street noise. The hotel doesn't offer much in terms of amenities. There's a continental breakfast buffet served daily (for a fee), a lounge area with a business corner, a fitness center with a few cardio machines and a rack of free weights, and free hotel-wide Wi-Fi. Travelers shopping around for a place to stay in the area may also want to consider the H10 Raco del Pi, which has similar amenities and rates, but prettier rooms.

Scene

Mid-range boutique hotel in a 19th-century building, popular with tourists, including families

Hesperia Barri Gotic is a mid-range hotel popular with tourists who want access to the nearby Gothic Quarter, and the hotel hosts plenty of families thanks to rooms that sleep up to three. Housed in a 19th-century building that was renovated in 2015, this boutique property has a casual, contemporary vibe throughout its common areas. The lobby features marble floors and metal paneling on the walls, with a chic spiral-shaped banquet at its center. A pair of modern elevators leads up to the guest rooms. There's also a lounge area with plush brown crushed-velvet chairs and a mix of modern art and black-and-white photographic prints on the walls.
