“A beautiful and elegant Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We enjoyed an absolutely wonderful time at the Mercer, friendly staff, elegant surroundings and the perfect location made our stay the very best introduction to Barcelona. Special thanks to Bogdan for his brilliant explanation of the hotel site history and its present day evolution into the fabulous Mercer Hotel. It is quite obvious that the staff have great affection and pride for the Mercer Hotel - lovely people and faultless cuisine made this a very memorable and enjoyable stay that I would happily revisit! 10 out of 10

Great location, close to everything. We were here on our honeymoon. Without request, we were upgraded to a suite upon arrival. The hotel staff was very accommodating and accessible. We were given a thorough tour of the hotel and it's history. They've done an incredible job adapting old with modern flair. Each time you entered and exited the hotel, there was always a doorman to open the door. The continental breakfast was beautifully displayed with an array of choices and the service was exceptional. . It was one of the most comfortable room we've ever stayed in. The beds and linens were top-notch. You will sleep like a baby. 5 stars all around!

My wife and I have travelled to Europe over a dozen times and can now say that the Mercer hotel is our absolute favorite. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring Barcelona, as it is in the gothic quarter and only a 2 minute walk to the metro. The staff was by far the most helpful, courteous and knowledgeable we have ever had the pleasure to encounter. The hotel was chic, modern and very well maintained. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone!

I stayed her for only one night with my Mother and I couldn't of found a more beautiful place. The hotel is a little difficult to find, so it might be best for you ask for written directions from the hotel so you can give it to the taxi driver.

The rooms are lovely and spacious. Very clean and modern. Very close to everything. Metro station just a block away.

We loved this place. The staff is also very courteous and helpful.

An excellent base for touring Barcelona in the gothic quarter. The staff could not have been more helpful if they tried.
Rooms are lovely and spacious, very clean and modern, with everything you need.
Walking distance of all major attractions.
Wouldn't have a problem recommending this to anybody.

A very chic hotel in the heart of the city. The hotel has been built in some old building, but has a very contemporary design. The staff was very courteous and helpful. We found the hotel a little hard to find the first time though. Other than that, no complains. Would love to go there again!
