Mercer Hotel Barcelona

Sophisticated service and lavishly rustic design easily make this one of the best, if not the best design boutique hotel in the city. The lack of a spa may be disappointing, but the paramount quality in all other aspects compensates for this absence well.

Stay at Mercer Barcelona

A world away from the bustle of the metropolis, and yet intrinsically placed within the Old City, Mercer manifests into what you, the guest, need. At once exciting and deeply calming, this is an immersive base from which to explore.Expect thick stone walls, dating back to the Roman era. Discover the hidden Orange Trees Courtyard, and revel in the elegance of its secluded beauty. Savour private dining and a refined menu, from the exclusive venue of the defence tower. And finally, make your way up to the roof, where crisp drinks and a romantic rendezvous effortlessly await.


Sat along a quiet side street directly in the Old Town, Mercer’s position is pretty hard to fault. You will be in the heart of the Gothic Quarter, from which the El Born district or the Cathedral of Barcelona are just a short walk away.


This is a lovely boutique that’s seeping with style. There are 28 one bedroom stays, combining contemporary touches with the authenticity of the medieval building in which the hotel is housed. Opt for a room in the Roman tower for an added dose of history.

Who is it for

The modish aura of this property is perfect for couples in search of a more intimate vacay. Cots can be provided free of charge, however there is an adult-orientated vibe to the place that makes it significantly less fitting for families.

Facilities & activities

Though stunning, the design of the ancient building comes with its own restraints. Spa and fitness facilities are limited, but there is a rooftop featuring aromatic plants, a plunge pool and quaint summertime bar. A chic cocktail bar, high-end restaurant and outhouse gastropub make up the dining experience here.
