We stayed at the Boria BCN last week for 4 nights. The hotel is in a perfect location. The Metro is across the road & a stop for the tourist bus is around the corner. Also walking distance from some excellent cafés & restaurants. The hotel is superb. We stayed in the Superior Double & it was huge! A very stylish room which was extremely comfortable. If we ever go back to Barcelona we will definitely stay here again.

We have just returned from a very enjoyable week in the Mercer Boria. A great location at the edge of the gothic quarter and walking distance to many major attractions.Spoilt for choice for bars / restaurants.

Room was big and comfortable.Staff were extremely friendly & helpful and assisted us with directions / restaurant and taxi bookings.

The location of the hotel in a narrow "old world" street does mean there is noise at night mainly at the weekends. This was not an issue for us.

I would also point out that the hotel appears to have worked hard to resolve any issues in any earlier negative reviews.The wifi for example is excellent.

All in all an superb base for our family holiday and we would happily return.

We loved your hotel! What a neat boutique hotel you have created, and a perfect location for our family to base out of for our summer visit to Barcelona. Really neat area of Barcelona, close to everything, very easy to find you way around via foot or subway. Your front desk assistants were wonderful, thanks for all of the help and assistance. You were a bit hard to find as no real signage, but with google maps, and peeking into the window, then asking, we found you. Just a hint, if you are tall, some of the ceilings/doorways in our large 2 room family room, are a bit lower than usual, and our oldest son is (who is 6'5"), had to watch his head. When we go back to Barcelona, we will definitely stay with you again!

We stayed here for 2 nights hoping to pack as much into our 3 day break as humanely possible. On arrival we walked past the hotel entrance twice as it is not immediately obvious but on the plus side this enabled us to find a great cafe for our first beer and a tasty snack.
When we did reach the hotel we were delighted to find a lovely welcoming receptionist full of advice and directions and were presented with a map which became our bible for the trip!
Our room was lovely, tastefully decorated like the rest of the property and extremely spacious with 2 balconies and a large hallway/seating area. There was no phone in the room but we were only on the 1st floor so not a problem. The safe played up a little but the helpful staff rectified it and our only other complaint was that the shower did not drain well and overflowed the tray-this had obviously happened before as the bathroom floor had quite a bad watermark. We reported the issue to reception and staff had fixed the issue by the following morning-very apologetic and quick to resolve.
The reception staff made this hotel a delight to stay in with some great recommendations for local restaurants and help with booking tickets online.
We would definitely come back, thank you for making our trip to Barcelona so memorable!

This hotel upon arrival was very warm and welcoming- Rooms spacious and clean, always enjoy a little 'thank you', or gift' two bottles of water and welcome card...information about travelling the area, very much appreciated. Stayed here with 3 children and overall fantastic experience. Great location, for shopping and beach. Little pricey (but have noted that three little bodies wile travelling in Europe cost money as compared to travelling in North America).

We came across this hotel by complete accident. We were looking for alternative accommodation due to a bad experience with another hotel. We walked past the Mercer Boria BCN and decided to ask for availability and prices. We were delighted with the helpful staff that went above and beyond to assist us in our first experience of Spain. The rooms were immaculately kept, comfortable beds (most important). Most of all the staff were the reason I am writing this review. The most professional, helpful and friendly hotel we have ever encountered. We are well travelled people and this was by far the best run hotel we have stayed at. A great location to everything also.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a side where they may not be any construction being done at that present time.
