The hotel is found in the centre of Barcelona, situated less than 20 metres away from the basilica of Satos Justos and Pastor in the gothic quarter of the city, and is little more than 100m from the square of Sant Juame.
Service by staff could not be better. Especially Conceirge - Jaun.Comment of E. Thomas , United States the 2014-06-29
We had an excellent stay in Barcelona and the hotel did not disapoint. The champagne arrival was a nice touch and all the hotel staf were very friendly and helpful. We visited the Sagrada Familia on one of our days, the hotel staff kindly arranged to pre-book tickets to avoid the queues (well worth it)!!Comment of P. Daniel , United Kingdom the 2013-10-09
fabulous location and extremely professional and friendly staff, 5* service without being over bearing. Such an atmospheric building combining the architecture and style of Gothic Barcelona with all the comfort and amenities of a modern classy Hotel. Will return at warmer times to sample the roof top pool and bar, loved the relaxed Tapas bistro and the staff really made feel special. Well done!!
"Outstanding in all aspects"
Spent the weekend with my family to celebrate my wife's birthday.The reception by the staff in planing our stay was second to none.The location of the hotel, the quality of the rooms, interior decoration, restaurents and above all the positive and service minded attitude of the staff made our stay to a 100% success. Next time in Barcelona, Mercer is a given!/Jack Forsgren
"Historic hotel in central location"
We recently retuned from a trip to Barcelona staying at The Mercer. We chose this due to the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor. In our opinion it didn't quite live up to those reviews. The hotel is in a great area in the old part of the city & close to many bars & excellent restaurants. It was also quiet at the time we visited. The hotel incorporates modern features with the historic ones in a tasteful and sympathetic way. However we didn't enjoy the breakfasts, although it has to be said most reviewers did! First course was a beautifully presented fruit salad & then a choice of egg dishes. Each time the eggs were very undercooked, even when I asked for well done, & not very hot.The coffee was not very hot either & we had to wait a while for it to arrive. I personally would have preferred a buffet breakfast The roof top bar & pool area is lovely, although there was no bar service when we were there. On the plus side the concierge service was excellent. All in all I would stay again as the plus points definitely outweighed the negatives
My wife and I spent a couple of nights here recently. It was, quite simply, an amazing experience. We treated ourselves to a hotel car pick up from the airport, so were whisked to the hotel in less than 30 minutes in the comfort of an S Class. The hotel is wonderfully located in the Gothic Quarter, which, for the uninitiated, is a maze of streets and passageways, some so narrow that you'd never believe a car could get through. But our driver did. On arrival, the welcome is very warm and very friendly. The hotel has only 28 rooms and the staff clearly invest their time in making sure that the relatively small number of guests receive as personal a service as possible - and they very definitely succeed in doing so. We'd booked a deluxe room, but were upgraded to a junior suite. The room was beautiful, the bed exceptionally comfortable. The hotel itself is an incredible blend of architecture from as far back as Roman times, combined with modern simplicity and elegance. The concierge took some time with us to suggest some places to go, the best recommendation being "to lose yourself in the Gothic Quarter and Born", which we did. Barcelona is a beautiful city to walk around - we managed at least 10km per day. Food was exceptional. Breakfast is a three course affair, fruit salad, cooked, then cakes, and you could easily eat enough to not need lunch. We dined twice in the restaurant in the evening. Of note was the tasting menu, which the chef amended to suit our personal tastes. The beef wellington was spectacularly good, and everything was supported by quite excellent service from a first class maitre d'. I would also add that food and drink prices were excellent value. You'll pay a lot more for materially lesser quality elsewhere in the world. All in all, a superb couple of days. A beautiful hotel in a beautiful city, with quite superb staff who made the trip truly memorable.
"Visit to Mercer Hotel Barcelona"
This was our first trip to Barcelona to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday and we decided to stay at Mercer, which is a boutique hotel in the Gothic section. The location and service was fantastic. The employees at the hotel helped make our occasion very special.
