Very Good hotel in a terrific location.

Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, location, helpful staff.
Cons: Don't buy breakfast, unless it's included. It's worth about half of the 16 euro @ cost.
Location: A safe location on a major street, 5-10 Minute walk from the Cathedral, La Rambla and the Picasso Museum. Plenty of restaurants and shops close by
Just finished a 6 night vacation stay. Hotel was very clean and in a safe, convenient location within walking distance from the tourist sites in the old city. Hotel is also about 50 meters from the Metro and easy access to other major sites. It is a very good value for the money with only a few glitches. Reception and maid staff was very helpful. The fridge did not work in our room and my wife, who is diabetic, needed an accessible place to store her insulin. The reception staff gave us immediate, 24 hour access to a fridge just off the lobby. Calling a taxi was no problem but providing directions, beyond drawing on a tourist map, was beyond their level of English or my level of Spanish. My wife asked for an extra large towel for her hair on the first day and each day thereafter they left her an extra towel. We had breakfast at the hotel only one morning. The price was outrageous for what you received (16 euro each), but there were plenty of breakfast options available a few steps outside the hotel. My wife is very picky and she was happy with the Hotel Gotico. I will stay there again my next trip to Barcelona and would recommend it to my friends.

Small and cramp, should probably rated as 3 stars

Posted Mar 12, 2014
Pros: Location! Location! Location!
Cons: Bed mattress, and Wi-Fi policy.
This hotel is a bit overrated, the location is their best jewel, price is also fine, but the room is very small, and bed is too soft and sink too much when you sit on it. The worst experience is the Wi-Fi, each device must have its own login credential, and every day you have to re-login, at least for my iPhone, such an inconvenience for customers.

Hotel in an excellent location

Posted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: Main thing the location.
Cons: Hotel run down and boring WFI connection very erratic
Location: Excellent location certral to the Harfour/Ramblas
Whilst in an excellent location the Hotel it's self is a bit boring and run down. No restaurant facilities and a very small bar off the reception that was never open. We chose board only which i was glad about as the breakfast buffet area was small and dingy and not very appealing. The rooms are of a good size and were kept clean but the hanging space was a bit sparce if you were looking to stay longer than a couple of days. Overall a bit disapointing but in a great location which does compensate as there is everything you need just outside the Hotel.

Fantastic Location

Posted Sep 3, 2013
The unique selling point of this hotel is that it's very well located within the Gothic center of Barcelona. On that note one should appreciate that it is a slightly old hotel, but it's always clean and tidy (although never was keen on the scent they used in their cleaning products). For the money i paid i can't complain. Great place for a short stay in BCN.

Good Value, Perfect Location.

Posted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location!!
Cons: The rooms are small and basic but comfortable nonetheless.
Location: Perfect Location
If you're looking for good value in the perfect location then this is the place to be. Located just yards from the metro station, Jaume I, the hotel is ideal for accessing all that the city has to offer. The beaches and harbour are just a ten minute walk away or a one minute metro ride. La Rambla is even closer, just five minutes walk. Barcelona is such an amazing city you won't want to spend much time in the hotel! Hotel Gotico couldn't be placed any better. The rooms are small and basic and there is no view to speak of. But the rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. The hotel was very quiet despite it's central location and the rooms have air conditioning to combat the stifling summer heat. If you're after a convenient location that is good value and aren't planning on spending much time in the hotel then look no further.

A room in the center

Posted Jul 27, 2013
Pros: It's central location.
Cons: Everything
Location: Cool neighborhood eateries, tourist traps, and lots of sights.
This hotel was not even remotely close to what I was expecting (not for the price). The staff I first encountered was friendly enough but the facilities were not at all what I was expecting. It was clean but you could see the wear and tear of the place. It looked as if the hotel owners had fallen on hard times and not been able to make repairs. The breakfast was unimaginative and not very tasty but it was edible. Once that was over there were no other meals to be had - or anything else for that matter (including ice)- in the hotel. Which was fine since it truly is in the heart of the old city. There are plenty of place to see and eat at nearby. So if you want a place to stay at the center of town and don't have high (or normal) standards on facilities, amenities, or at time cleanliness, then this is the place for you. This hotel offers you a bed to sleep in, a bathroom, and not much else. Good luck!

Hotel superbly located

Posted Jul 4, 2013
Pros: the location
Cons: the reception staff
Location: perfect
the location is perfect! in fact, it is an old palace who has to be completely redone. The ladies who clean the rooms are adorable and very effective. However, the reception staff is terrible! too bad Anyway, we spent a wonderful time. Viva Barcelona!
