The Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) is a beautiful area situated in the old center of Barcelona, where there are a lot of tourist attractions, shops, restaurants and clubs. Therefore, it would be advantageous to reserve a hotel in this neighborhood. Tourists can choose from a wide range of hotels. There are many luxury 4 star and 5 star hotels, such as the Ohla Barcelona and the Olivia Plaza Hotel, but there are also a lot of simple 2 star or 1 star hotels, such as the Hotel Cuatro Naciones or the Hostal Fernando.
At the same time the area has some disadvantages. First, the accommodation is more expensive than in the other parts of the city. Second, it is very difficult to get here by car or by public transportation. Third, this quarter is overcrowded, mainly during the summer and most of the hotel rooms are quite small. If somebody would like to get a bigger room they would need to pay a lot. Finally, due to the active nightlife and festival organized in the center of the city the area is not very quiet.
