Hotel Neri Relais & Chateaux
Ranked #23 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2012

The Hotel Neri is difficult to find, but once you are esconced there you will be very pleased. It is luxurious but in an understated way. I don't usually stay at pricey places, but reserved in advance with a 20% discount (nonrefundable!) and that brought it into the affordable range for me. When I checked in, I was upgraded to a better room...so that got things off to a good start!

The location is fantastic, in the heart of the Barri Gotic, within a few blocks of the "Rambla" (where there is a handy metro stop) and the incredible "Boqueria" market, and near the beautiful Cathedral. It's a little noisy at times because of the school children playing in the nearby square, but this was a minor problem. The desk staff tried hard to be accomodating, but this was a bit difficult because of the language barrier.

I would highly recommend the breakfast, which I had served in my room...a vast array of fruits, pastries, cheeses, eggs, jamon, etc...all in little separate dishes. It costs 22 euros and it's worth it!

Barcelona is a very busy, somewhat chaotic city (in a good way!)...so it was nice to be able to retreat to the Hotel Neri for some peace, quiet, and luxury.

We only had four nights in Barcelona on our way to Provence and the Neri sounded perfect. Close to the cathedral in the old town, it hit all the boxes for a cool, sexy place. The lobby is very pretty but occasionally there was a sewer smell that my wife picked up on. Breakfast in the dining room was terrific: big plate with small dishes of at least 10 different things. All good, all fresh. The room was a little less of a hit. We got an upgrade and if this is an upgrade I would hate to see a standard room. In my opinion it consisted of a chair in front of the closet. There was a terrace but rotting floorboards and some sort of dirty mattress platform made it less than inviting. All in all, it's not bad but I have stayed at many Relais & Chateaux over the years and I would look a little deeper in Barcelona before I did this place again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the hotel face onto a lovely square that is packed with kids most of the day. C...

This place is truly a jewel. The whole hotel is beautifully decorated. The staff is excellent, gracious and helpful. The room itself was a delightful haven, with a grotto-like bathroom. Our room was overlooking a tiny plaza, quite picturesque. After wandering around Barcelona all day, it's wonderful to have an oasis in the city. I was enchanted by the place.

Although as some mentioned, the exact location is a bit obscure, it is in a very good area. It is on a pedestrian street, but there's parking underneath the cathedral nearby, so it's really not that difficult, and fairly typical for the older portion of a European city.

I booked Hotel Neri for our last night of a two week trip in BCN and Costa Brava area. I always like to end a trip on a high note and Hotel Neri sounded perfect. Unfortunately about two days prior to our arrival I received an email from the manager indicating they had electrical issues on the 3rd and 4th Fl. and it was not expected to be finished by the time of our arrival. They had made arrangements for us to stay at 1898, same type of room (higher price at 1898 but no problem Neri price honored) including breakfast. This was a major problem for a fully booked hotel to have to relocate so many people on short notice and they handled it very professionally including checking with us upon our return home to make sure all went okay. I was so impressed by their handling of this. I regret not being able to experience the hotel on this trip as location and ambiance seems so beautiful. If we return to BCN Neri will be our first choice. This Relais & Chateaux property really provides some excellent customer service.

Getting there is not half the fun. We got a taxi from the airport (the driver couldn't speak any English and we don't speak Spanish) so she put the hotel address in her GPS. At a random corner, she motioned to us to get out of the taxi and pointed up a pedestrian-only street. We were never informed by the hotel that it was in a pedestrian-only area. So we slepped our large suitcases up the cobblestone street. After about 5 blocks when we didn't see the hotel, we started asking people where it was by showing them the address. Finally we made it to a larger plaza, found a policeman, who then directed us to the small alley where the hotel was hiding. After we finally checked in and got settled in our room, we loved the place. Great modern decor, very dramatic. The desk clerk was extremely nice and helpful. Our room was beautiful and the bed was incredibly comfortable. There was a small bar in the hotel where we had a quiet drink before venturing out into the night for dinner. The old historic area is a maze of small streets and alleyways. We had a lovely breakfast in the dining room (it was being remodeled and was closed for dinner).

Our next problem came when we tried to meet friends for a pick up to continue on with our trip to visit Catalon wine makers. They couldn't drive in to the hotel and the square where we had arranged to meet them was closed by the police because of a demonstration. After hauling our luggage back to the hotel, the desk clerk arranged for a taxi to make it in to the hotel, pick us up, and get us to a meeting point outside the historic area. Whew! We loved the hotel, but would only stay there again if we were traveling really light.

Recently stayed here. My 2nd visit to this hotel and it was superb. Amazing location surrounded by gothic buildings down a narrow alley and an incredible restoration job. Breakfast was a bit slow but we were on holiday so didn't really mind and food was beautiful. It is a really central location and rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Definitely worth the extra bucks we spent...

Stayed there in april of 2010 and again april 2012. As good as before. Location is unique in the heart of the Gothic quarter. No cars. Historic building redone to highest standards with comfortable modern rooms and spectacular bathrooms. Rooftop terrace and an overall relaxed ambience add to the appeal.
You have a choice of regular cancellable reservattions or nonrefundable at 20% discount. To complain when the latter are not refunded for whatever reason is silly. It is your resonsibility if you do not take inurance. Not a ripoff at all.
