Mercer Hotel

Gothic Quarter

This small luxury hotel in the Gothic Quarter hotel has just 28 rooms and blends ancient and modern seamlessly—the building actually incorporates Roman ruins from the first century A.D. Many guest rooms also have original wood-beam ceilings and stone walls, but the furnishings are minimalist, with lithe wood framed beds and bright white bathrooms with Corian counters and standing bathtubs. Bits of Barcelona history are found throughout the property: Seventeenth century columns are exposed in the inner courtyard (dotted with orange trees) and guests can admire medieval frescoes in the library. Dining options include a restaurant from a Michelin-starred chef, a cocktail bar, and a vermuteria, a traditional neighborhood bar where guests can savor tapas and vermouth. (Rooms, from $550)
