“Gothic Brilliance”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights from the 9th of august, having asked our travel agent to find us something boutique and unique and this certainly met the bill. It's tucked away in the back streets near the Cathedral, in the heart of the Gothic quarter and the rear terrace sit's into a very charming and traditional square. The hotel itself partly dates from the 13 century, however it's been renovated to the highest standards and maintains a lot of original charm. Upon check in we where greeted with a complimentary drink and our room was ready early (a nice change). We stayed in room 302, which was a junior suite, whilst not that big it was well proportioned, had a very nice bathroom and excellent views on to the square at the back of the hotel. The design was modern but tasteful. overall room quality was good. The food at the restaurant downstairs is excellent and very good value for money. Whilst the small nature of the hotel means it does not have all the facilities you would expect in a larger hotel (gym, pool, etc), the food and service where excellent and the 24 hour room service is unusual for a smaller hotel. The staff where charming, attentive and very friendly and certainly did a great job at making us feel welcome and relaxed, they even went as far as to print out and give a recipe to my wife after she had eaten the same dish at lunch 3 days in a row, which was a great touch. The hotel has lot's of character and I firmly recommend it if your looking for a base to explore Barcelona for a long weekend.

One tip- If arriving at the hotel by taxi, get the hotel to book it as the Gothic quarter is difficult to enter via car and lot's of taxi drivers won't take you to the hotel (as we found out on arrival), which can make it difficult to find.

Overall- This is a very unique and special hotel, well run, great staff, good location and I can't find fault with it (unusual for me).

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square at the back of the hotel, whilst you won't get a terrace, you g...

Fabulous hotel in a great city, Neri has it all. Excellent location, superb design and fttings, brilliant staff. We stayed four nights and enjoyed every moment. The rooms are very funky but well equipped, and if there is anything you need its there in 2 mins.
The breakfast is magnificent, more like staying at an indulgent friends' house. A platter of everything local arrives ( ham, cheese, superb croissants, yoghurt, fruit) and then you can order whatever you might like. Add to this a Nespresso machine and it will soften the heart of any regular traveller.
our little girl managed to cut her headand required stitches and the hotel calmly called a doctor to the room to sort her out. Oh, and then followed up with a little cake for our daughter to wish her a recovery. Nice touch.

The sampling menu which we took in the package was excellent, and I for one have not had gold leaf pork scratchings before !

We also did a private gothic quarter tour with a local Estrelle which was great fun and at a nice pace of our own choosing.

We won't be telling too many people about this hotel so we can sneak back anytime....

Room Tip: All good !

This a truly exquisite hotel! The charm & elegance does not disappoint. The customer service was exceptional. We had a beautiful family suite, which was 2 rooms with a hallway. The rooms were very modern & spacious with a view overlooking the square. The rooftop terrace was lovely. Breakfast provided excellent service with delicious food. This hotel deserves 5 stars. Wishing charm, elegance & an excellent location, I highly recommend!

Hotel Neri met or exceeded all expectations for our vacation. Family of 5: elderly mom, sisters and husbands. Exceptional staff and service, lovely room and bathroom, room temperature ideal. Kudos to the Hotel Neri staff!
P.S. July 1, 2014, was our arrival date and, coincidentally, the taxi strike day. Hotel Neri was not easy to find. With the help of a woman on the AutoBus, we exited the bus at the closest plaza (Catalunya), and then with the help of a kind medical van driver we arrived at the hotel with all luggage in tow. If you do not know Barcelona and/or you are traveling with an elder, I would highly recommend a more convenient (albeit expensive) shuttle service like SunTransfers (who was on strike on our arrival date but who worked out perfectly 4 days later taking us to the airport).

Room Tip: We were in the room with balcony (2nd floor per American standards). Perfect view of courtyard.

Estimado Sr./Sra. Cam Gorden, muchas gracias por sus comentarios pero sobre todo por las felicitaciones hacia y para nuestro personal.
Respecto al acceso al centro de Barcelona y para la próxima vez que nos visite, nuestro consejo es siempre que utilicen los traslados que el hotel les ofrece, son transfers privados que puede contratar el día antes de la llegada y aunque sea un grupo familiar grande, como era su caso, la empresa con la que trabajamos dispone de vans que pueden acoger hasta 5/6 personas. De esta forma ustedes ganan en tiempo y sobre todo en rapidez además, los traen hasta la misma puerta del hotel, en pleno corazón del Barrio Gótico.
Muchas gracias de nuevo y esperamos darle nuevamente la bienvenida en el hotel Neri R&C.

An incredibly beautiful hotel with very helpful staff. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Right in the middle of the gothic quarter, a stunning location. Breakfast and lunch were very good and the rooms had amazing character. Licensed musicians play in the corridors in the evening and quite the experience acoustically. Close to many very good restaurants, in fact so many it is tough to make a decision on where to eat. We highly recommend going to the open air boqueria. The food stalls are unbelievable. Would recommend a half day tour and then pick favorite spots to return. Can't go wrong - whether shopping, eating, or touring the Gaudi locations (if that's your thing). FC Barcelona tour was also great. Only complaint were the load folks outside our window from 2:30-4am. Was rough waking up for an early flight. Should have called the front desk to call the police. Our bad.

The Hotel Neri was the perfect place to start our vacation. Centrally located in the Gothic quarter, the hotel provides a great combination of style, charm and amenities.

We booked the hotel's sole suite, which consisted of two rooms with a sliding wood door between the rooms. The bathroom was large and well appointed with shower over bath combo. We wanted a suite with a separate room because we have a four year old son, but those traveling without children or children old enough to have their own room may want to consider other rooms. The downside of the suite is that it is on the first floor of rooms and as such quite dark (despite two large windows that open into a narrow alleyway).

The hotel itself is quite charming and the in room amenities were great. Complimentary bottles of water are provided on a daily basis.

We didn't eat breakfast at the Neri; it would have cost 25 euro extra. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to La Boqueria, which offers much better breakfast value and selection than the breakfast offered by Neri.

The extra charge for breakfast, as well as the extra charge for a bed for our son and the resulting extra bill at check-out, left us fealing nickel and dimed. Other hotels of the same class didn't charge extra for either.

For our first trip to Barelona we were looking for somewhere central to stay but wanted to avoid big, Western-style hotels. The Hotel Neri was the perfect solution. Situated next the Barcelona's cathedral along a narrow alley in the gothic quarter, and backed by a pretty square, its location could not have been more charming. The staff were warm, welcoming and highly efficient, with fantastic recommendations for places to eat. The rooftop drinks area (leafy and sheltered with rambling jasmine) was an oasis of calm on hot afternoons. The room (a junior suite on the first floor) was spotlessly clean and stylishly presented - although at times a bit dark because of the nearness of neighbouring buildings across the side alley. Overall a great place to stay.
