In the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter is a hotel as unique as the city itself. Hotel Neri Relais & Châteaux not only honors the city’s ancient past with architectural elements dating back to the 12th century, but it also heralds Barcelona’s modern artistic influences in a hotel that is a true sensory experience.

A nod to Barcelona’s historic Past

Barcelona’s Hotels Association awarded Hotel Neri with the distinction of Hotel Monument. Such a classification is only given to hotels that add value to the heritage of the city. Hotel Neri is deserving of such accolades as the hotel itself consists of two historic buildings. Both of the buildings date back to the eighteenth century as aristocratic homes. One of the buildings still contains elements from a twelfth century palace that are interwoven into the hotel’s restaurant and bar. This medieval history is what draws tourists to both the Gothic Quarter and Hotel Neri.

Designed to awaken the senses

The interior of the hotel is anything but ancient though. Designers adapted a sensory approach to help bring the building’s drab interior to life. Guests are greeted to a festival of scents, lights, colors, and sounds. Relaxing music and aromas fill the air as guests roam the hotel’s quaint interior. Bright, modern paintings draw in color and light. Soft furnishings introduce an added comfort. The sensory experience continues to the terrace where the hotel hosts regular live music amidst a backsplash of bright flowers.

Hotel Neri’s 22 rooms and suites are uniquely decorated with wood floors and neutral tones as the base.

All rooms come with views of the quaint streets of the Gothic Quarter, rain effect showers, and environmentally friendly Korres toiletries. The higher-level rooms come with additional space.

Gothic Quarter location

The Gothic Quarter is truly a magical neighborhood in Barcelona. Cobblestone lanes haphazardly twist and turn with a new architectural surprise lurking behind almost every corner. One of those surprises is the quiet Sant Felip Neri square, which is where the hotel is located. A local school, baroque church, and fountain are mere feet from the hotel’s doorsteps, lending a local touch to your stay at Hotel Neri. Yet, some of Barcelona’s most popular tourist attractions like Las Ramblas, la Boqueria Market, and the Picasso Museum are just a short walk away.

The final sense of taste

Awaken your sense of taste at Neri Restaurant. The restaurant’s Mediterranean menu changes twice a year to account for seasonal ingredients. Beyond the standard menu, Neri Restaurant also offers a daily tasting menu. Like the rest of the hotel, elements of the buildings past are interwoven into the restaurant. An arched, medieval wall separates the Neri Restaurant from the Lounge Bar. The bar itself is a popular gathering spot for hotel guests and neighborhood locals alike. Hotel Neri also offers a more casual dining option on the rooftop, Roba Estesa.
