At Mercer Hotel Barcelona, medieval heritage and present day modernism meet to create an altogether captivating and luxurious stay in Barcelona’s Gothic quarter. This stylish luxury boutique hotel is a veritable architecture museum, showcasing everything from ancient Roman barcino walls and original 12th-century frescoes to a sultry mixologist bar and rooftop plunge pool, as envisioned and executed by award-winning architect, Rafael Moneo.
The 28 rooms and suites at the Mercer Hotel Barcelona are designed to pay respect to the hotel’s architectural heritage while adopting a uniquely contemporary and comfortable character. Distributed over three floors, the rooms are wrapped in luxury, from sleek oak floors and Molton Brown toiletries to Finnish beechwood bedside lamps and elegant deep-pile rugs. Yet each also has its own singular standout feature, whether Catalan vigas ceilings, exposed second-century stone brickwork, a private breakfast terrace covered in orange blossom and jasmine, or a two-person bathtub.
The views from Mercer Hotel Barcelona, too, are impressive. Many rooms overlook the Gothic Quarter or the hotel’s orange tree courtyard. Families will especially appreciate the spaciousness of the noble Mercer Suite, which can connect to a Junior Suite for optimal comfort and privacy.
A walk through Mercer Hotel Barcelona is a walk through history itself. The library was once a sentry path between the 28th and 29th Roman watchtowers, and the frescoes are relics unearthed during the hotel’s renovations. Nearby, the gastrobar Le Bouchon and gourmet Mercer Restaurant continue the historical exploration with traditional yet elevated Catalan cuisine. Try the informal tapas and indulge in gastronomic tasting menus by Chef Xavier Lahuerta that reinterpret tradition to highlight the heart and soul of local flavors.
While locals are known to stop by the cocktail lounge, the best place to truly soak in the best of Barcelona is from the Mercer Hotel Barcelona’s rooftop terrace and pool. Here, guests can recover from their long days of city exploration with glass of champagne, a dip in the plunge pool, some sunbathing in the Mediterranean sun, and spectacular views over the Gothic Quarter’s historical roofs. Whether in their room, in the halls, or on the rooftop, guests of Mercer Hotel Barcelona will find themselves surrounded by history yet enfolded in all of the modern luxuries of a first-class residence.Request Information
