Two buildings, a medieval palace and an 18th-century stone house, have been restored to create 22 luxe guestrooms and suites on three levels. The neoclassical façade, coupled with stone and exposed brick interior walls, evokes a sense of Barcelona as it was centuries ago. Interiors by Cristina Gabás showcase antique furnishings, chandeliers and gilded mirrors mixed with contemporary paintings and sculptures.
Bed and Bath
You don’t expect to find such spacious, opulent and sensuous rooms in this medieval setting. Minimalist style is complemented by whimsical flourishes, including beads dangling across the frames of guestroom windows that actually open. Each room is unique in decor: The themes, palettes and murals hung above the beds all vary by floor and there’s a bed linen and pillow selection as well as a massage menu in every room. Natural quartzite floor and wall tiles (said to dispel negative energy) in the bathroom are accented by shiny Arne Jacobsen fittings over large double sinks. Bathrooms have windows, infrared heat lamps and products from Greek brand Korres.
The focal point of the 35-seat Neri Restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is a dramatic medieval arched stone wall separating the bar from the dining area. The restaurant’s seasonal menu, created by chef Benito Iranzo, features fresh seafood and other local ingredients, many of which come from the nearby Boqueria Market. Weather permitting, drinks and meals are served alfresco in the courtyard behind the hotel. Roba Estesa, an inviting rooftop bar and garden with deck chairs and two hammocks, tempts visitors to catch a bit of sun, soak in the panoramic rooftop views or enjoy tapas and drinks at sunset. Indoors, the cozy library, with its metal mesh curtains, velvet sofas, and iron armchairs, is perfect for reading, relaxing or sipping a glass of cava.
In the Area
Rooms at the rear overlook the Plaça de San Felipe Neri, arguably one of the most beautiful squares in Barcelona. An octagonal stone fountain and huge tipuana trees adorn the intimate space. The Baroque San Felipe Neri church, once frequented by Antoni Gaudí, sits along the historical square. And the quirky Museu del Calcat, a shoe museum, is located in a Renaissance building next door. Head farther afield into the heart of the Gothic Quarter, where every turn through the labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets and winding alleys uncovers a small shop, artisan studio, bar or restaurant, as well as a changing cast of street performers. It’s a short walk to the magnificent Cathedral of Santa Eulalia (the main Gothic church in Barcelona), La Rambla and the Boqueria Market (a mecca for food enthusiasts).
How to Get There
Great hotel, amazing location, wonderful staff....stay here. We had a suite in their apartments next door. It had a kitchen and fridge, so you could eat all that awesome food/wine from the markets in the comfort of your hotel...it was wonderful.
Excellent small hotel in convenient location with old world charm combined with modern facilities. Rooms are very comfortable and roomy including lounge area to relax in. Dining area is. Great for breakfast and for dinner with a very good menu available. Staff at reception and Resturant are very helpful and pleasant and multilingual. Most welcoming and make the stay more enjoyable
Fantastic location for exploring this unique city. Get lost and found wandering through the streets and eating at all the bars. Would love to come stay again in 2026 when the sagrada familia is complete.
This is a truly great hotel. From the moment you arrive you feel welcomed. They really do go out of their way to help in any way possible. The hotel is small, but has all of the services you would want in a great location. We stayed in the apartments, which are right across the road from the hotel entrance. Very nice, with more than enough room for 2. We booked using the AMEX Fine Hotels and so breakfast was included in our rate and it was really good with plenty of food. For 2 days we had it delivered to the room. Small but nice roof deck. We were there in November so the bar on the deck was not open but one afternoon we grabbed a bottle of wine and went up there for sunset. The only thing to be aware of is that the street it is on is very narrow and some cab drivers understandably won't deliver you to the front door. They take you to a square a block or so away, but if walking is an issue arrange your cab through the hotel since the company they used did make it to the hotel entrance.
Hotel Neri is very well situated. The highlight for us was the innovative menu and warm service at the hotel restaurant. We dined there twice(unusual for us) and the other evenings would come back for a late evening drink and dessert. The meals were informal but outstanding and the atmosphere warm and inviting. The bartender was an artist and delight to watch preparing cocktails.
