I just recently spent a wonderful weekend in Barcelona with my husband. The Mercer is located in a historical building inside Barri Gotic, the very old Gothic Quarter, and it was built around roman walls of the ancient city of Barcino dated back to the 1st century A.D.. We absolutely loved staying there! The modern design by Spanish architect Rafael Moneo is amazing! The combination of modern with ancient roman walls makes it a sight to see.
Their restaurant Mercerino is also delicious and there is a special room right by the restaurant where medieval paintings were discovered during the remodeling in the 28th defense tower.
Their staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It is a small hotel and you’re addressed by name.
The hotel is also very clean and quiet. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious for European standards. Ours was #309, one of the rooms featured in their website. Our bathroom didn't have a tub but we had a very nice rain shower so we really didn't miss having one. It may not look like it from the pictures but cars can actually drive into the Gothic’s very narrow alleys and our taxi dropped us off right in front of the hotel.

It not only represents the splendour of the old Julia Augusta Flaventina Paterna Colony, in what was then the Roman city of Barcino, but is also an archaeological gem that combines past and present, the monumental and the latest design.
