Best Luxury Hotels In Barri Gòtic

The Gothic Quarter is usually first on the list for those new to Barcelona; it takes its name from the architecture for which the city is famed. Composed of narrow winding streets, alleyways dating back to medieval times, wrought-iron balconied buildings, market squares and city walls, the Barri Gòtic is where the Romans began their settlement in the city. It’s one of the liveliest parts of Barcelona, although peaceful pockets can be found among its labyrinth-like lanes. Here are the most impressive places to stay in the beautiful Barri Gòtic.

Kimpton Vividora Barcelona

Catering to digital nomads, the Kimpton’s property in the Gothic Quarter offers a co-working space and pantry with free-flowing coffee and tea. There’s a fitness centre, a library, a laundry service and a rooftop infinity pool onsite, while guests can get active beyond the four walls, with the hotel’s complimentary loaner Tokyobikes and longboards. 156 bedrooms are replete with Smart TVs, Vifa Bluetooth speakers, yoga mats and DeLonghi coffee makers. Guests can dine on Catalan dishes at the Fauna restaurant, with tapas plates served at Cafè Got and drinks at the rooftop Terraza de Vivi bar.

Hotel Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona

Back in the 16th century, this mansion house on the Passeig de Colom was the home of a nobleman. Now restored as a boutique hotel, it riffs on minimalism, making the most of local wood and stone in the decor. Rooms come with welcome cakes and chocolates and Nespresso coffee machines, some with views of the port. Dine on tapas dishes in the restaurant or on the rooftop terrace (where you’ll also find its two open-air pools). Take light night drinks in the monochrome cocktail lounge and have a tinkle on its grand piano — snacks and pastries are provided here during the afternoons.
