We actually booked through Hotel Annex but it is the same as Hotel Rey Don Jaime. We arrived to a small, hot, and unattractive reception area. The front desk employee that greeted us was confused and unfriendly. Behind her sat unorganized papers and a giant can of roach spray. She insisted that at every time we left the building, we...

We booked 3 rooms. They were different. One was really tiny and in a bad condition but therefore it was not noisy because the Windows weren't on the street side. The other two were in a better condition and had Windows to the street side. Nice view but noisy. If you're lucky you'll see a kakerlake(sorry don't know the right...

This hotel is well located with Las Rambla, parks, the beach cathedral all within a relatively short walking distance. Public transport is very accessible with a metro stop less than a minutes walk away and the areo bus 10-15mins north. Our room was basic but clean, with an ensuite that served its purpose without complaint. We were positioned on the...

I was in Barcelona for a weekend and got a great day on this hotel! Literally under $60 a night which is a miracle in Europe! It's about 15 mins from the city center but well worth the drive. The hotel is situated on top of a mountain overlooking the city and the beach. Upon checking in the staff wasn't...

Considering this hotel was 1* our expectations were rather low. However it was definitely not as bad as I had been expecting. Staying in a 3 bed room, it was quite small, with only the beds, side table and small desk in the room, and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom had a good shower and bath, however with no plug....

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
