Me and Ben
Little contemporary tapas bar at the front of the hotel.
The stunning, expansive lobby with high ceilings, stonewalls and central courtyard open to the sky.
Be immersed in history! Some parts of the Mercer Hotel date back to the 1st Century, this section was part of the Roman Wall of Barcino.
Our beautiful bedroom with the most comfortable bed ever!
Looking down on Barcelona from our crumbling original window frame.
Silky smooth finish with Molton Brown amenities.
Could this be the most amazing ‘welcome to our hotel’ gift ever? Little balls of fruit, chocolate and sorbet accompanied by a glass of cava! Yum!
Okay, so yes, we’d had a bit to drink and decided to go to the rooftop at night! But hey, doesn’t it look pretty!
Contemporary style, sitting in history.
Cute bar next to the restaurant.
Mercer Hotel’s discreet entrance in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter.
Highs + Lows
History, culture, design, gastronomy all under one roof... what’s not to love?
I just love the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona – narrow, winding lanes to get lost in.
This is a calming and relaxing hotel, not a place for party animals!
No mini bar in our room, but we didn’t actually miss it.
