City of tapas, architecture and football

General Information

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.

Tips and Recommendations

  • There are differences between the hotels depending on which part of the Gothic Quarter they are situated. In the center of the quarter the accommodation is more expensive and it is difficult to arrive there by public transportation and by car. Most of the hotels in this area have a unique gothic design, but their rooms are small. At the same time, around the quarter the hotels are more modern than those that are situated in the center. Moreover this part of the quarter is more accessible by public transportation or by car.
  • During the summer it is recommended to book in advance hotels in the Gothic Quarter since there are a lot of tourists who visit the city.
  • Since the Gothic Quarter is one of the most romantic parts of Barcelona, hotels in this neighborhood are extremely recommended for couples who would like to spend their honeymoon or a romantic holiday in the Catalan city (for additional information – Romantic Vacation in Barcelona and Romantic Hotels in Barcelona).
