Located in El Born at the doorway to the Barri Gòtic, this boutique hotel sits in the most historic part of Barcelona. It offers quality and comfort at an affordable price in a 19th-century private mansion turned modern hotel. The bathrooms gleam with marble, the floors are stained a dark walnut, and the crisp white linens stand out in high contrast. In addition to doubles, there are several suites, some with private patios. If you like the location, consider the upgrade to a suite, as doubles are beautiful but too tight to have more than one suitcase open at a time.
