This is an old Roman tower restored perfectly and turned into a hotel. Incredible location, you can walk everywhere. The rooftop is lovely and quiet and the pool is a nice treat on a hot day. Service is excellent and the restaurant and bar are very nice.

This is a lovely hotel. I love 5 star boutique hotels because of the personalized touches and exceptional service and Mercer in Barcelona certainly delivered. Location is perfect as well. They have a welcome and departing gift. Rooms are decent size and enough if you’re not spending too much time in the room. Hotel has historic parts throughout which is super cool and the terrace is lovely. They even made recommendations for tapas when we got in late the first night and it was one of our favorites of the whole stay. Thank you Mercer and I highly recommend this hotel!

Great vibe, great food (breakfast is a must, room service was amazing too), & great service.We visited with our 17 month baby, and the staff was so thoughtful to set up the crib for him in the room and care for his needs during breakfast, like brining out extra fruit bowl, utensils, juice, and straw.Mini fridge was stocked with the essentials (free of charge) and got restocked everyday. Great location - lots of food options and cute stores in walking distance. Staying at Mercer was a great way to start our first visit to Spain!

Our flight was cancelled so we had a bonus day in Barcelona and decided to try the Mercer after passing by it several times during our stay. We were impressed! Our room was spacious and quiet with a lovely if limited view. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The location is hard to beat in the middle of the Gothic Quarter -- walking distance to everything including the subway if you are wanting to go further afield. We ate dinner in the hotel's tapas restaurant and enjoyed it! We had a Junior Suite with a king-size bed and a single bed for our 16-year old daughter. She did say that the single bed was not comfortable, but the king was fine. We would stay here again!

I can’t say enough good things about the Mercer. Starting with the very basics, the service is impeccable. Every single staff member is both incredibly kind and attentive. Next, the room was gorgeous, spacious, and the bed was so comfortable I did not want to get out of it. I think it is so important to mention when there is an excellent housekeeping service - they go above and beyond in morning and evening services.My stay in Barcelona would not have been nearly as wonderful if not for Mercer and particularly the concierge! From recommendations to bookings they made my trip so effortless. Special shoutout to Dani! The restaurants and tours he suggested were amazing. Also, both of the hotel restaurants probably serve some of the best food you can find in Barcelona. I would’ve eaten at either every night if I could have, make sure you make reservations when you arrive! A shoutout for Ago at the restaurant breakfast - she is lovely.A true luxury hotel, Mercer is the only place I would stay in Barcelona in the future. I felt so taken care of, the entire staff made me feel right at home. I can’t wait to stay here on my next visit!
