“Mercer in the Gothic- Very Nice”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The Mercer hotel is nicely situated in the Gothic area within walking distance to many sites and eats. The service was very warm and friendly and the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. The outdoor pool and patio are very nice and relaxing.

I should have written this review immediately after my stay in Sept 2013. The positives started from the moment we arrived. The staff was fantastic, very accommodating, and friendly. I loved the decor and mix of old and new. The room was luxurious & quiet and the bed & pillows were the best I've ever experienced in a hotel. The only small complaint would was the toilet which was possibly too modern.

We just got back from Barcelona where we stayed for six days, all at the Hotel Mercer. We loved everything about it. First and most important, the location is fantastic. The Gothic quarter is by far my favorite part of the city. The hotel atmosphere is very calm. The rooms are sparkling clean, the beds and pillows VERY comfortable, breakfast wonderful and the rooftop terrace is charming. The staff was always helpful. We would absolutely recommend this hotel. The only thing that wasn't great.....the toilets! Unusual seat design, but we got used to it. Everything else.....excellente!

We just returned from several days of pure luxury. Everything and everyone exude quality. Many places try to handle all the little things but here's a hotel that excels in those finer points. Even the interior and architectural design are outstanding. - an amazing blending of Roman, Medieval and modern

From our initial reception, to service in the restaurant and pool and throughout our stay, we always felt like VIPs.

We were even able to have a masseuse come to our room for afternoon treatments with little to no warning.

The pool deck is small but totally appropriate for the size of the hotel. It felt like something that you could have on a roof top if you had a penthouse condominium. The bartenders were all terrific offering custom drinks to ensure you received what you wanted. There was a vodka on the shelf I never saw and was interested so I asked if I could taste a bit. Well it was a generous pour so much that I shared some with my wife. And here' what is surprising, there was no charge. What other place would do this? Really, the entire time we all felt as though everyone was there to take care of us, despite being there with a full hotel.

There are many places to eat in the City but do make sure you find time to eat here.

We can't wait to return and when we do, it will absolutely be at the Hotel Mercer!

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

We stayed at the Mercer Barcelona based on the rave reviews and Traveler "Hot List".
The hotel is in a great location in the Barri Gothic section and next to the Born, two of the best areas to be in for the restaurants, cafes, sightseeing etc.The hotel design is contemporary and appealing in contrast to the old architecture in the Barri Gothic. The staff was excellent, especially the concierge staff who were very helpful with directions, reservations etc.The downside to staying at this hotel and why we wouldn't return are the room amenitites :the lighting in the room was terrible, the bedside lights are not practical if you want to read, the light at the small desk was dim, and the lighting in the bathroom was insufficient, down bed pillows were worn out.

Dear Madam,

I want to personally thank you for sharing your comments. As General Manager, I express my disappointment for all the inconveniences suffered.

I can assure you that the feedback of our guests is very important for us. The bed lighting comment has been expressed in some ocasions and for this reason we have taken the action of placing additional bed lamps for reading.

Regarding the pillows, we do indeed have different pillows selection that we offer when requiried.

I apologize for not having met your expectations. I trust we can welcome you once again.

Kind regards,

I stayed at this lovely hotel with my family of four. From the moment we arrived in the taxi we were treated with 5 star service. The doorman and concierge greeted us when we arrived and instantly made us feel welcome. Both rooms that we stayed in were lovely. We were even pleasantly surprised to have one room upgraded to a junior suite. This room was even larger with a private terrace and rooftop garden with loungers and a table. Our stay was highlighted with a special event gourmet dinner in their restaurant. The food was amazing! I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Barcelona! It's location within the Gothic area added to its charm! You won't be disappointed!
